I'm trying to find the word for when solitary notes or ordinary sounds invoke the "feel" of some music you were listening to after the music has ended. For instance, if you hear someone play an E♭ by itself on a piano it doesn't contain any particular "feel" (eg. it may not make you sad, or happy, or invoke any particular emotion). However, if you listen to an entire song in the key of E♭, then stop, then play a solo E♭ it may sound as if the note has taken on the "mood" of the song (eg. it might sound sad if you had just been listening to a sad song and E♭ was in the key that the song was in).
More importantly, I'm looking for the word (it might be the same) for when this particular form of bias effects "normal" sounds. eg. you play a song in the key of E♭, and then pick up a glass of water and hear ice clinking, if the note of the ice happens to be in the same key as the song you were playing the ice may then "sound" like the song and invoke the same feeling.
I've heard several people talk about percieving things this way, but I've never known anyone to have a word for it.
