Music is a sonic art form and cultural activity. General definitions of music include common elements such as pitch (which governs melody and harmony), rhythm (and its associated concepts tempo, meter, and articulation), dynamics (loudness and softness), and the sonic qualities of timbre and texture (which are sometimes termed the "color" of a musical sound).1 Music is also one of the auditory performative expressions that can empower bardic performances with magical effects.2

Musical instruments vary widely between cultures, musical styles, and craftsmanship. Many are handheld while others are bulkier but still portable, and some are too heavy to easily move or must be fully stationary to be played.345
Opera, a form of theatrical musical performance, is prominent in Cheliax and among Chelaxians.6
