ECLECTICISM (picking various elements from a wide range of sources) is the pith of the twentieth century, exhibiting the individualism and pluralism which describes the period. Certain composers basically can't be placed in a perfect class because of their innovation and uniqueness.
Composers during the century have broadly used a great diversity of new techniques and new styles in their music. Although the term is frequently used to define certain music in the second half of the century, this text will expand the meaning to include several categories. Eclectic music may draw from previous music quotation, non-Western music, or popular music, or be a noteworthy change of traditional materials.
The term 'eclectic' in the context of progressive rock portrays a summation of components from different musical sources, and the impacts and career ways of bands that take from a wide scope of genres or styles. While progressive music can be, from a bigger perspective, eclectic, the 'Eclectic Prog' term is uncommonly intended to reference groups that trespass the limits of established progressive rock genres or that blend many influences.
Eclectic Prog brings together the hybrid of style and a variety of themes, advancing numerous components from various sources. The Eclectic class takes note of bands that developed particularly over their career (in a dynamic, developmental way) or have a plural style without a reasonable referential core.
The basic features lie within the music's variety, rich influences, art tendencies, and classic prog-rock elements. Among the representative, bands are KING CRIMSON, VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR, and GENTLE GIANT.
In music, eclecticism is the mindful utilization of styles that are alien to the composer's nature, or from a former period. The term is likewise utilized disparagingly to depict music whose composer, thought to be lacking with regards to creativity, seems to have openly drawn on different models (Kennedy and Bourne 2006). This word can likewise be utilized to depict the music of composers who combines various styles, for example, using an entire tone variation of a pentatonic folksong over chromatic counterpoint, or a tertian arpeggiating tune over quartal or secundal harmonies.
