Why do certain musical chords/notes/melodies make us feel different emotions and are they consistent over different cultures? What is it about minor chords, for example, that makes us feel sad? I have read things about this - eg Music on the brain - by various authors - but while they show what happens in the brain in different aural scenarios they don't give any explanations as to WHY emotions are caused by different sounds. Perhaps that's not something science can address.
