That sounds *also* very interesting!
What I meant is apparently not "experimental" at all. Imagine for example a
Bossa Nova or a Jazz piano piece with usual sound and harmonies, just that
they never return to a similar sequence, maybe not even to the base tone
(if such exists). A linear composition, somehow.
Since this is the oposite of what we usually talk about, it might not even
be off topic :-)
