Etymology[edit]

anti- +‎ music

Noun[edit]

antimusic (usually uncountable, plural antimusics)

  1. (music) Any form of music that defies convention to such a degree that some people would not recognise it as musical.
    • 2015, Samuel Cameron, Music in the Marketplace: A Social Economics Approach (page 2)
      [] the current vogue, on the internet, for creating “black midi” files using software to create musical performances with literally millions of notes being played [] is unlikely to appeal to the general listener and we should probably consider it a deviant case of anti-music made for frivolous purposes rather than any kind of polemic.
