Tonal Flux

Sounds may be ordered according to a central tone, but need not be predictable.

One-dimensional predictability is contrary to the reality of sound and its perception.

To narrow the function of hearing to a single attitude of mind is to deny the sense itself.  The witless anarchy of chaotic noise is superior to bland, insipid sounds, but far more to be desired is the release of the mind from dull expectations- stultifying beats and rhythms- through immersion in unobstructed flow of aesthetic design.
