For the longest time, humanity has progressed towards new and different music. Sounds and styles never before heard are being created and formed. Unorthodox ways to enchant an individual has always been significant, thus creating eras of music from romanticism to future garage. None of these would ever see the light of day if it weren't for experimental music.
What is your particularly favorite experimental band/artist/album?
For me it would have to be:
Current 93 - Thunder Perfect Mind
Swans - White Light From The Mouth Of Infinity
The Flaming Lips - The Flaming Lips
Radiohead - Kid A
Gong - Flying Teapot
Throbbing Gristle - 20 Jazz Funk Greats
Kanye West - College Dropout
Amon Düül II - ####### Dei
