In 1998 the American Patrick Grant declared August 24 International Strange Music Day. The idea is to open up new acoustic terrain. To offer something the ear has never heard before.

Syncopated piece for partially prepared piano over a steady rhythmic motif which slightly ironically suggests the restlessness of a bumpy journey.
Organic mid tempo, ideal for physics and science
Experimental, avantgarde string piece with bits of noise and free improvisation. Disharmonious, troubling, ominous, sinister. Underscore version with added free drumming.
Utterly strange tune with break beat and fast moving electronics.
Unusual soundscape with experimental classical elements. Strings, hard piano tones and a drum create an atmosphere of hurry, agility and experimentation. Demanding and avant-garde.
Strangely oppressive sound that doesn't bode well. Feelings like nervousness or discomfort can be well underlined with this electronic track.
A lonely, reverberated trumpet is floating over a soundscape of staccato notes on the piano and rumbling low frequencies, joined by sparse double bass notes with a searching quality.
Interesting synthesizer sound for art exhibitions, comedy or contributions from the cultural scene.
Pulsing tabla and bass effects
Futuristic, well paced, deep electronica, atmospheric, positive tension.
Medium Funk groove with synth melody and throaty synth sounds underneath.
Looking for something different? How about this playful, fun tune that combines delayed electronic drums with upward moving scales.
Dissonant piano track. Suitable for disturbing images or horror movies. Piano.
Jittery percussion and big synth bass riff
Tongue-in-cheek, slow tempo, classical cartoon sound.
Ironic samba for children's films, animated films and family films.
This track is somewhat unsettling with a tough beat and E-guitar.
Cautious and reserved. Mysterious and minimal.
