The study explores the concept and the idea of musical experimentalism in the manifestos of musical avant-garde, and clarifies the confusion between the concepts of avant-garde and modernism in music research. In addition, the study locates the most important manifestos in reference to the idea of musical experimentalism.

The salient material of the study comprises manifestos written by well-known avant-garde and experimental artists and composers such as Luigi Russolo (1883–1947), Edgard Varèse (1883–1965), John Cage (1912–1992), Pauline Oliveros (1932–), R. Murray Schafer (1933–2021), Hildegard Westerkamp (1946–), Frederik Rzewski (1938–2021) and Cornelius Cardew (1936–1981). It is based on avant-garde theory (e.g. Bürger 2006 [1974], Ziarek 2001, Calinescu 1987; Huyssen 1986; Poggioli 1968 [1962]) and experimental music studies (e.g. Demers 2010; Saunders 2009; Hegarty 2007; Attali 2006 [1977]; Nyman 1999 [1974]; Mauceri 1997). The idea of experimentalism is explored from the viewpoint of Martin Heidegger’s (e.g. 2010 [1929]; 2007 [1962/1988]; 2000 [1927]; 1998 [1935/1936]) and Herbert Marcuse’s (2011 [1977]; 1969) philosophies using Heidegger’s concepts of ‘being-in-the-world’, ‘uncanny’ and ‘nothingness’, and Marcuse’s concepts of ‘aesthetic ethos’ and ‘counter-societal experience’.

The study presents an interpretation of the ethos of musical experimentalism as a mode of musical and cultural subversion. The study argues that musical experimentalism does not operate within conventional musical laws, theories, preconditions or definitions, but is based on idea that music can happen anywhere at anytime. The ethos of musical experimentalism requires openness to the world and acceptance of the indeterminacy of life. Musical experimentalism aims to radicalize experience through seeing, hearing and understanding the reality in a new way.
