Many of the kinds of effects normally associated with (harmonic) tonal music can occur, even in such strange settings as 11-tet (which is often considered among the hardest tunings in which to play tonal music). Consider, for instance, the harmonization of the 11-tet pan flute melody that occurs in the `chorus'. Does this have the feeling of some kind of (perhaps unfamiliar) `cadence' as the melody resolves back to its `tonic'? Spectral mapping of the instrumental sounds allows such xentonal motion.
