There are 4 strong modes, with a strong DOMINANT-TONIC cadence.
The diatonic Major Mode (with predominantly flattening progressions),
the most common and the most fundamental.
The diatonic Minor Mode (with predominantly sharpening progressions),
an exact inversion of the diatonic Major Mode.
The chromatic Minor Mode (with predominantly flattening progressions), the most common minor mode.
The chromatic Major Mode (with predominantly sharpening progressions), the most unusual of the four.
Sometimes understood as a cadence with its dominant to a chord other than the main TONIC,
a modulation is better defined as a travel to a different circle, a circle shift.
As there are several kinds of modulations like those that change key (ex: the second theme of the sonata form),
those that do not (the bridge of some popular songs), as well as key changes that occur suddenly,
without a modulation (ex: in some trios), as also, the shifting techniques and processes can vary,
MusicNovatory naturally prefers using more specific terms to describe these different phenomena.

(ie. Rhythm, Harmony, Melody), as well as an extended Applications volume.
(pronounced mooziketso in Esperanto) signifies the essence of music, and is composed of the structures of Rhythm, Harmony, and Melody.
The word "mystery" is usually defined as "something unknown, unexplained, or incomprehensible in its nature", but we prefer
