"Electronica" is a broad term used to describe a wide range of electronic-based music genres that emerged in the late 20th century. It encompasses a variety of styles and sub-genres that are united by their use of electronic instrumentation, production techniques and technology. Some of the key elements of Electronica include the use of electronic instruments such as synthesizers, drum machines, and computers, as well as the use of samples and loops.

The genre of Electronica includes many sub-genres such as Ambient, Trip-Hop, IDM, Techno, Drum and Bass, Breakbeat, Electro House, Dubstep, and many more. These sub-genres vary widely in terms of tempo, style, and instrumentation, but they all share a common thread of electronic-based production.

Electronica music is often associated with the underground club and rave scenes, but it has also become increasingly mainstream, with many electronic-based artists achieving mainstream success. Many electronic musicians also create their music by using digital audio workstations, software synthesizers, and other electronic music production tools.

Electronica is known for its experimental and innovative approach to music, and it has had a significant influence on many other genres such as pop, hip-hop, and rock.

Non-threatening light synths moving slowly. Works great as background music, where you don't want the music to take too much room.
