Default Why Don't I Like Avant Garde?

I want to, but don't.

I "appreciate" the genre. I understand the wonderful creativity, the freedom, and sometimes the genius of the composer.

But the bizarre syncopations (if there are any syncopations), and-- to me-- the absence of rhythm, I cannot listen. Even Miles Davis Witches Brew and some of John Coltranes masterpieces is hard for me to listen for longer than a few minutes. It's like this

By no means am I putting this genre down; I just wish I could like it more.


Why do some people like avant garde and others do not? Is it an acquired fondness?

Thanks for any feedback!

*shrug* You tell me. Avant-garde music is a pretty big umbrella. What do you normally listen to?

I'm not even sure anything that I like qualifies as avant garde.
The Olga Bell album below might? No matter what it is, I think it's brilliant.
Avant garde is kind of a weirdly fuzzy genre term.

i'm not totally into avant garde music but when it sticks, god damn does it stick.





there's some really wild experimental hip-hop and metal i can get down with, but in the case of my jazz i need there to still be a little bit of a traditional approach for me to latch onto it.
