Emerging in 1954–55, rock music was initially referred to as “rock ‘n’ roll.”; After 1964 it was simply called “rock music.” The change in terminology indicates both a continuity with and a break from the earlier period; rock music was no longer just for dancing.

The most experimental music to be found in 2001 is that of the contemporary experimental composer Gyorgy Ligeti, whose turbulent choral atonality combines, for Kubrick's purposes, the unease of inexplicable occurrence with the adventurous strangeness of the utterly new.
Another use of Ligeti's music occurs in the sequence in the 18th century room in which Bowman lives out his life: The presence of his extraterrestrial "zookeepers" was suggested by surreal, laughterlike sounds created by altering an excerpt from a Ligeti composition.
