Avant  Garde  Composition


   

..

 
 
 
   
Introduction







 








Avant - Garde Composition


During the last  half  of  the 20th  Century creative world was a frantic ferment of  rrebellious
composers & music concepts that dared us to listen to "dissonance" as "consonance". 

New melodic shapes,  non-beat rhythm, revolutionary ideas about music form. 
Are any of today's composers avant garde? You decide.
