Default 100% Avant-Garde Music

Quote:
a·vant-garde
ˌaväntˈɡärd/
noun
1.
new and unusual or experimental ideas, especially in the arts, or the people introducing them.
This thread is for music that is absolutely avant-garde. By that, I mean the music doesn't sound like anyone else at all, it doesn't co-opt an experimental style and call itself avant-garde (I see this a lot), and brings new ideas to the table.

I'm drawing a pretty hard blank on this so let's see what you guys have to offer.

I just don't see the appeal, and I think I have pretty good taste in music.

I'll check that dictionary, but in the meantime I'm impressed - as is everyone else in the world - by your eloquence, obvious accomplishments and success, and the evidence of your blazingly high intelligence.

4'33 is the only true answer, since it doesn't even use music.

You already listened to all those albums?

Is free improv really a genre/musically distinct sound descriptor? That doesn't really make any sense

I don't think this can exist post-the first song that was ever created. That's the only totally original track out there.

And 4'33 too

Now all music either has sound or no sound and it's all been done before.

There's some really outstanding stuff all over the Esmectations page
