The key figures, Ornette Coleman, Cecil Taylor, and John Coltrane, had very different approaches, but they all challenged the status quo. All this is implied by a 'meter' of 4/4, 3/4, etc. A very good example of this in 20th-century classical music is Berio's "Sinfonia," in which large swells of dissonance counter things which are very tonal sounding, like the third movement of Mahler's second symphony, the skeleton of which is quoted as a backdrop.

Guitars are by preference played with glissando technique and delay/echo effects are heavily used, and elements originating from reggae/dub are fairly common. Music used in the sound mix for a motion picture. Such an approach is similar to the use of coloristic chords in the impressionistic music of Debussy; for example, in his "Prelude VI" ("Triste et lent"): chords still work to treat a tonality, here, but they are used and voiced for their color, rather than for their function.

Albums in this genre will often include at least one long meandering jam based on a main theme, where loops and wavelike fluctuations provides slight variations to this structural foundation. Ever since the birth of jazz in North America in the late 19th Century, the influence of various international cultures has been vital to the music’s development. Though not labeled as such, free jazz musicians also employ "aleatoric" structures, much in the way of 20th-century classical music, using sounds to be chosen indeterminately by the performer or left to chance.

The film was also revolutionary for two sound engineering firsts: The pioneering sound film was produced by young production head Irving Thalberg, and its original score was written by the team of Nacio Herb Brown and Arthur Freed - the film's hit song was "You Were Meant For Me." [Freed remained with MGM and eventually was responsible for some of the studio's most successful and sophisticated musicals, beginning in the 1940s and continuing into the 1950s. However, despite "prog-metal" becoming as stylistically tied to one particular strain of the genre as "prog rock" is to symphonic rock, the act of innovation, advancement and change has acted on numerous variations of heavy metal not normally considered part of "prog metal" per se.
