  Impressionist music - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Impressionist movement in music is a movement in music loosely set between the late nineteenth century, up to the middle of the twentieth century.
Technically, the impressionists invented or began using a great number of new compositional techniques: multi-modality, planing (the use of voices moving in parallel motion; Debussy's prelude La cathédrale engloutie provides an example), extended tertian harmonies, and intentionally ambiguous musical forms.
Impressionist composers also made extensive use of whole tone scales to create a dreamy, "hazy" effect in their works, much like the blurred paintings of Renoir and Monet.
