4 Tonality
4.1 Essentially in C# minor
4.1.1 Key heavily masked by extensive use of modality & quartal harmony
4.2 There are very few perfect cadences to define the key, and many modal cadences are often 'imperfect' in effect. Chords slide from one to the next in a way that avoids establishing keys. There is often a tertiary relationship that is created when music is repeated a 3rd higher or lower.
