Hey everyone. The other day whilst I was writing music I happened upon a comment by a songwriter who said that in order for him to convey an emotion through a song, knowlege of modes is a key factor. Now I know my modes pretty well, Ionian through Locrian and everything but this artist seemed to imply that different modes had different emotions. It made sense to me but now I find it hard to write a song as I'm constantly thinking about what chord or pattern best suits my song, wheras before I would just play and write down what I had. My question here is: What modes convey which emotions? Or at least, are meant to.
