    Avant-garde Composers

    When I was studying composition, Stockhausen, Boulez, Berio, Nono, Takemitsu, Ligeti  &  other  20th Century composers...comprised the "avant-garde"   or  "experimental"  generation of composers.  (Integral Serialism - Wikipedia ), Pointilism, Textures, non-metric   &  dissonant  intervals used melodically &  harmonically in all  registers of an instrument or voice ...all of this provided composers of the time with a new music language  -  music "ahead of its time",  thus: "avant-garde.   Music composition in today's world explores music stucture much more freely.  Is your music avant-garde to today'slisteners?   Be true to your creative skills, intuitive mind, sense of musical rightness. Your mind's ear  has the seeds of greatness and unheard musicality.  Dare to be truly original. Your musical honesty and probing artistry will  create music of great excellence!....

    Wikipedia: Experimental Music
    "Experimental music is any music that challenges the commonly accepted notions of what music is. There is an overlap with avant-garde music. John Cage was a pioneer in experimental music and defined and gave credibility to the form. David Cope describes experimental music as that, "which represents a refusal to accept the status quo"

    Experimental Music - Definition  |  Koldo Barroso
    From MusicMoz:  TheGeminiProject - A crossover style between everything and anything. Exhausting, exciting, sophisticated, multifaceted, heavy, mellow, powerful, beautyful, electronic, acoustic, concept-oriented. From pop to metal, from house to baroque, from progressive to art rock and back again, there is everything for everybody. Each track is different from the last. Prelistening each track for five seconds will be useless, most tracks will end completely different than they started. Music for music freaks, not for those who only listen to "everything that is on the radio". Have fun! All songs available in high quality MP3 audio. A good point to start with is the opener of Album IV, "The Lives Of Other People". For friends of - long progressive rock epics, try "Voyager" on Album III, "Scum" on Album IV or "Après-she" on Album II; - electronic style mixes, try "Objectivity" on Album III or "Twilight Of The New Gods" on Album II; - ambient house, try "Charon" on Album II; - ballads, try "Future Perfect" Album I or "Nowhereland" on Album IV; - mellow piano solo music, try "Stray Pucks" on Album IV; - plain rock tracks, try "Outer Space Interment" on Album I; - industrial music, try "Skull" on Album I.

    Explore the music art-forms of avant-garde composers!

    When I was studying  composition - Stockhausen ,  ,BoulezBerioNonoTakemitsuLigeti
    & other  20th Century composers  -  comprised the "avant-garde"  or  "experimental" generation 
    of composers.

    Composers of the time experimented with a new music language:  (Integral Serialism (Wikipedia),  Pointilism, Textures, non-metric  & dissonant  intervals used melodically & harmonically in all 
    registers of an instrument or voice.

    The Avant-garde provided  music "ahead of its time".  Music composition in today's world explores music stucture much more freely. Is your music avant-garde to today's listeners?

    Be true to your creative skills, intuitive mind, sense of musical rightness. Your mind's ear  has the  seeds of greatness and unheard musicality.

    Dare to be truly original. Your musical honesty and probing artistry will create music of great excellence!
