AVANT-GARDE MUSIC
Closely associated with electronic music,
the avant-garde movement dealt with
the dimensions of sound in space.
Avant-garde music is music that is
considered to be at the forefront of
experimentation or innovation in its
field.
The avant-garde style exhibited a new
attitude toward musical mobility.
Improvisation was a necessity in this
style, for the musical scores were not
necessarily followed as written.
