Browsing: Experimental Rock

Experimental rock, also known as avant-garde rock, is a type of music based on rock music which experiments with the basic elements of the genre, or which pushes the boundaries of common composition and performance technique. Performers of experimental rock may also attempt to individualize their music with unconventional time signatures, instrumental tunings, unusual harmony and key signatures, compositional styles, lyrical techniques, elements of other musical genres, singing styles, instrumental effects, found objects, or custom-made experimental musical instruments (from the Wikipedia article Experimental Rock).

B4tF attempt to combine the dynamic of interesting music/prog with the accessibility of alternative melodic songwriting. Far more emphasis on arrangement than complexity. The focus on classic sounds like the 12 string acoustic guitar, Rickenbacker bass, mellotron, Moog, Hammond and other analog synths combine with more alternative influences in writing and production.
