aleatory music

AY-lee-ah-tor-ree MYOO-zik


Music in which the composer introduces the elements of chance or unpredictability with regard to either the composition or its performance. This is not a 20th century invention as it was known in the 18th century in the form of dice music in which dice were used to determine which measures of the music would be performed.


Counterpoint: Witold Lutoslawski: Symphony No. 3
