Similar sympathies in the second half of the century are generally subsumed under the heading " postmodernism ". A compositional tradition arose in the midth century—particularly in North America—called "experimental music". Its most famous and influential exponent was John Cage — Minimalist music, involving a simplification of materials and intensive repetition of motives began in the late s with the composers Terry Riley , Steve Reich , and Philip Glass. Later, minimalism was adapted to a more traditional symphonic setting by composers including Reich, Glass, and John Adams.

For more examples see List of 20th-century classical composers. Contemporary classical music can be understood as belonging to the period that started in the mids to early s, which includes modernist , postmodern , neoromantic , and pluralist music. Many composers working in the early 21st century were prominent figures in the 20th century. For more examples see List of 21st-century classical composers. For centuries, instrumental music had either been created by singing, or using mechanical music technologies , such as drawing a bow across a string that is strung on a hollow instrument or plucking taut gut or metal strings string instruments , constricting vibrating air woodwinds and brass or hitting something to make rhythmic sounds percussion instruments.
In the early twentieth century, electronic devices were invented that were capable of generating sound electronically, without an initial mechanical source of vibration. As early as the s, composers such as Olivier Messiaen incorporated electronic instruments into live performance. While sound recording technology is often associated with the key role it played in enabling the creation and mass marketing of popular music , new electric and electronic sound recording technology was used to produce art music, as well.
In the years following World War II , some composers were quick to adopt developing electronic technology.

In the s the film industry also began to make extensive use of electronic soundtracks. In addition, folk music was also borrowed by composers in other genres. Some of the work of Aaron Copland clearly draws on American folk music. Bluegrass music is a form of American roots music , and a related genre of country music.
Influenced by the music of Appalachia ,  Bluegrass has mixed roots in Irish , Scottish , Welsh , and English  traditional music, and was also later influenced by the music of African-Americans  through incorporation of jazz elements. Settlers from the United Kingdom and Ireland arrived in Appalachia during the 18th century, and brought with them the musical traditions of their homelands. These traditions consisted primarily of English and Scottish ballads —which were essentially unaccompanied narrative—and dance music, such as Irish reels , which were accompanied by a fiddle.
Several Appalachian bluegrass ballads, such as " Pretty Saro ", " Barbara Allen ", " Cuckoo Bird " and " House Carpenter ", come from England and preserve the English ballad tradition both melodically and lyrically. In bluegrass, as in some forms of jazz, one or more instruments each takes its turn playing the melody and improvising around it, while the others perform accompaniment ; this is especially typified in tunes called breakdowns. This is in contrast to old-time music , in which all instruments play the melody together or one instrument carries the lead throughout while the others provide accompaniment.
Breakdowns are often characterized by rapid tempos and unusual instrumental dexterity and sometimes by complex chord changes. There are three major subgenres of bluegrass and one unofficial subgenre. Traditional bluegrass has musicians playing folk songs, tunes with simple traditional chord progressions, and using only acoustic instruments, with an example being Bill Monroe. Examples include Cadillac Sky and Bearfoot. A newer development in the bluegrass world is Neo-traditional bluegrass; exemplified by bands such as The Grascals and Mountain Heart , bands from this subgenre typically have more than one lead singer.
Bluegrass music has attracted a diverse following worldwide. Bluegrass pioneer Bill Monroe characterized the genre as: " Scottish bagpipes and ole-time fiddlin'. It's Methodist and Holiness and Baptist. It's blues and jazz , and it has a high lonesome sound.

At the same time, the neoclassicism that became fashionable in the s is represented by Stravinsky's opera buffa Mavra and his opera-oratorio Oedipus Rex Later in the century his last opera, The Rake's Progress , also marks the end of the neoclassical phase of his compositions. In the sixties, it should be noted, the Bernd Alois Zimmermann opera, Die Soldaten , had a great impact. It deals with the subject of mortality through irony and collage.
The relationship particularly, the relative value of classical music and popular music is a controversial question. Richard Middleton writes:. Neat divisions between "folk" and "popular", and "popular" and "art", are impossible to find But many pieces commonly thought of as "art" Handel's Hallelujah Chorus , many Schubert songs, many Verdi arias have qualities of simplicity; conversely, it is by no means obvious that the Sex Pistols ' records were "accessible", Frank Zappa 's work "simple", or Billie Holiday 's "facile".
Blues musicians such as Muddy Waters brought the Delta Blues , played mostly with acoustic instruments, from the Mississippi delta north to cities like Chicago, where they used more electric instruments to form the Chicago Blues. Country music, once known as Country and Western music , is a popular musical form developed in the southern United States , with roots in traditional folk music , spirituals , and the blues. Disco is an up-tempo style of dance music that originated in the early s, mainly from funk , salsa , and soul music , popular originally with homosexual and African-American audiences in large U.
Hip hop music, also referred to as rap or rap music, is a music genre formed in the United States in the s that consists of two main components: rapping MCing and DJing audio mixing and scratching. Jazz has evolved into many sometimes contrasting subgenres including smooth jazz , Bebop , Swing , Fusion , Dixieland and free jazz. Jazz originated in the early 20th century out of a combination of the Blues, Ragtime, Brass Band Music, Hymns and Spirituals, Minstrel music and work songs. Mostly instrumental pieces creating sounds of a soothing, romantic, mood-elevating or generally relaxing nature.
The polka, which first appeared in Prague in , continued to be a popular form of dance music through the 20th century, especially in Czechoslovakia, Poland, and areas of the United States with a large population of central-European descent. In the United States, the "Eastern style" Polish urban polka remained popular until about A later, rock-influenced form is called "dyno" polka. Rock and roll developed from earlier musical forms including rhythm and blues , which had earlier been called race music , and country music.
