Default Re: YIN YANG THING!!

In the sense that all sounds have pitches, sure; but I would classify most sounds as either tonal (melodic) or percussive (rhythmic).

You can make a rhythm out of one sound, with practically unidentifiable or indistinguishable tonal properties. But my point is, melody is composed of tones (notes) set to rhythmic structures.
