Experimental rock, also known as 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. Experimental rock uses extended techniques, prepared instruments, unconventional playing techniques, extended vocal techniques, using instruments, tunings, rhythms or scales from non-Western musical traditions, using trash cans, telephone ringers, and doors slamming, and creating experimental musical instruments.
