I was just thinking about how Hans Zimmer tends to choose a key strategically. In his Masterclass, he uses the key of D minor to make it so the strings have something to land on, aka a deep and dark pedal tone. He chose D minor because that key works to establish a pedal tone as well as be a little dark.
This made me wonder about the vibes of specific keys. So, if D Minor is dark, what about F Major? Or Db Minor? No doubt, I’d like to have a better understanding of this!
