Experimental music is a genre that encompasses a wide range of styles and techniques that depart from traditional or mainstream forms. This can include unconventional elements such as unconventional instruments, non-standard structures, and chance-based or improvisational methods of composition. The goal of experimental music is often to push the boundaries of what is considered "music" and to explore new sounds and forms. It can be found in many different genres, including avant-garde, electronic, and noise music.

One of the key characteristics of experimental music is its focus on experimentation and exploration. This can mean using unconventional instruments, such as found objects, or incorporating elements of other art forms, such as spoken word or visual art. It can also mean using unconventional methods of composition, such as chance operations or improvisation, to create new and unique sounds and structures.

Experimental music has a long history, dating back to the early 20th century with composers such as John Cage, who was known for his use of chance operations in composition, and Karlheinz Stockhausen, who was a pioneer in electronic and tape music. In the 1960s and 1970s, the avant-garde movement became popular, with artists such as La Monte Young, Terry Riley, and Steve Reich pushing the boundaries of what was considered "music".

In more recent years, the rise of electronic and digital technology has led to the development of new forms of experimental music, such as ambient, glitch, and IDM. These genres often incorporate elements of electronic music, such as synthesizers, samplers, and drum machines, to create unique and otherworldly sounds.

Overall, experimental music is a genre that is constantly evolving and pushing boundaries, with new and exciting developments happening all the time. It is a genre that is not limited to any particular style or instrument, and it encourages creative expression and exploration.

A short, but powerful dramatic interlude. Starts of with a cello, then a piano is added. Then more cinematic instruments are added. Stays suspenseful throughout the entire song.

“Wrath” truly makes your bones shake. A spike-wearing metal band in front of a way too loud orchestra puts this piece in one of my favorite hybrid genres. It starts of very heavy and takes a drastic turn about 2/3 in. This piece definitely works great with epic content.

One of my most popular pieces. This piece is so melodic and full of harmony that it’s hard to comprehend. I picture a group of nomads traveling the most beautiful landscape the modern world has ever seen. Almost fantasy-like. But they don’t care, because they need food and shelter, they...

A very happy and motivational piece with African percussion, and of course - THE MARIMBA! Orchestral strings added towards the end, for feel-good feeling. I can see this being used in a huge variety of joyful things, and it will most likely make your audience feel even better.

A horror piece with a more ambient vibe. A few jumpscares in the piece, but overall a very suspenseful piece with creepy elements. This piece is written specifically to push your buttons.
