Experimental rock or avant-garde rock is a type of music based on rock which experiments with the basic elements of the genre, or which pushes the boundaries of common composition and performance technique.
Performers 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 or custom-made experimental musical instruments.
Some of the earliest artists which could fall under the term Experimental Rock include Monks, The Mothers of Invention, The Velvet Underground, Fifty Foot Hose, Nico, Captain Beefheart, Silver Apples and others.
