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 moderate sounding, babbling brook with very little variance, other than some increased intensity of water flows at midpoint and towards the end, sonically suggesting a more active part of the water flow.
