Lucy Khanyan presents original compositions fused with an innovative avant-garde folk spirit, multi dimensional ethno-experimental elements. A type of music that pushes existing boundaries and genre definitions. Experimental compositional practice is opposed to institutionalized compositional, performing approach . Elements of experimental music include undetermined movement , in which the composer introduces the elements of chance or unpredictability. Artists may also approach a hybrid of disparate styles or incorporate unorthodox and unique elements and sounds.
