Nancy's posting on the subject of dark sounds (which was originally
submitted by an individual who wanted to understand what a dark sound
was) in illuminating and a genuine attempt to shed some light on
the problem for the original submittor. However, her analogy of
being similar to treble and bass, with her added comment of "kinda,
sorta" shows just how impossible it is to be precise in this hazy

Most of you know my feelings on this matter and I'm not about to
state them again. I only point out that this subject has yet to
have any really comprehensible explanation that is of practical
value to a clarinet player trying to seek knowledge here. It's
all smoke, mirrors, and confusion.
