Experimental Music and Video Resource.

In classical music of today and definitely in pop music, the pendulum has definitely begun to swing back towards normalcy. I would venture to say that the beginning of the 20th century until the 1970s saw the most experimental music. Since then, most of the experimentation has been made in technology, not strict acoustic classical composition. Movements like aleatoric music and even minimalism are already decades, if not half a century old, while newer movements like postminimalism (composer John Adams, for one) and neoromanticism (composer Jennifer Higdon) have reverted back to more traditional uses of new composition techniques.
