Unusual Sounds encapsulates the niche and fascinating subculture of library music. Genres were spliced, conventions dispensed with, and oftentimes hybrid music of astonishing complexity was produced. Elements of rock, jazz, soul, even twentieth-century avant-garde composition were all utilised, and no stone was left unturned in the 20 track compilation. As a result, some of the best library music defies all categorisation, reflecting the individualistic quirks and artistry of the various musicians who made it.
