  Intelligent Dance Music (IDM)
Intelligent dance music (IDM) is a rather ambiguous term that covers a range of electronic or electronic-influenced music.
Prior to the adoption of "intelligent dance music" as a blanket term for this music, terms such as electronic listening music, intelligent techno, listening techno, art techno, and experimental techno were common.
Indie dance Indie dance is a term used for the genre of music combining elements of dance-pop (or other forms of electronic dance music such as house or techno) and indie pop.

IDM is also somewhat improvisational/aleatoric (thus often innovative), and often may be described as a type of popular art music (popular, in this particular context, is meant to indicate non-classical music intended for a particular audience for mass consumption) (Shapiro 171-72).
The term “dance” in Intelligent Dance Music actually refers to the use of the techniques and technologies of electronic dance music rather than implying that this is music to dance to.
IDM is therefore a unique style of electronic music (actually, of all music) because of the fact that it is not necessarily defined by the way it sounds but how it functions.

The last of Warp's Artificial Intelligence artist albums, and the pinnacle of the series, Incunabula entered the UK Indie charts at Number 1, as did the 10" box set of Basscadet remixes, which followed a few months later (the only occasion on which the duo have taken an album track for single release).
If Incunabula saw Sean and Rob present their music as a series of jagged edged landscapes, Amber saw them smoothing out the edges and delivering an aural bit map every bit as contoured as the natural beauty of the beachhead that graced its' cover.
Autechre's music has always been an attempt to give solid form to those most nebulous of thoughts that float through the deepest recesses of their psyches.

 Intelligent dance music - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Intelligent dance music (commonly IDM) is a genre of electronic music derived from dance music of the 1980s and early 1990s which puts an emphasis on novel processing and sequencing.
IDM's roots in electronic dance are responsible for the term "Dance" in the genre name, which was originally applied to musicians like Aphex Twin and those on the Warp Records label.
In November 1991, the phrase "intelligent dance music" appeared on Usenet in reference to Coil's "The Snow" EP.

The IDM list was originally created in August of 1993 for the discussion of music relating to Aphex Twin and Warp's early "Artificial Intelligence" compilations.
As there is no set definition of the boundaries of "Intelligent Dance Music", the official stance is that all opinions are to be respected.
Not only does this entirely screw the people who's music we discuss, it is also illegal and any intelligent person would not want their illegal requests broadcast to 1000+ subscribers.

Intelligent Dance Music (IDM) is the opposite of hardcore and commercial dance music.
Many musicians and music lovers have turned to this genre on its entirety as it keeps music within the essence and it pretty much has no ways of "selling out" because the very definition of the genre in itself strays it away from this danger.
IDM is currently inspiring many artists with more mainstream success, including Radiohead, who has called Autechre and Aphex Twin main sources of inspiration for their infamous Kid A.

 Music | Boards of Canada   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
Boards of Canada’s critically acclaimed 1998 debut, Music Has the Right to Children, was a perfect example: though its carefully constructed sonic sculptures of ticky-tack percussion, mathematically precise rhythms, and spare synths and samples were impressive, it didn’t make much effort to draw in the casual listener.
The push-and-pull pacing and tiny crests of "Julie and Candy" suit the childhood allusion of its title; the drifting rhythmic roils and blasts of feedback that underpin the wobbly "Dawn Chorus" keep the track from falling into a mechanized rut.
At a time when the gulf between hedonistic fun and stern-faced intellectualism has split electronic music into warring factions, Boards of Canada have come through with an album to remind us that the circuits and wires of IDM can express feelings and emotions, too.

 An Introduction to Intelligent Dance Music by Travis Christensen
musical material might consist of a collection of samples, and the musical processes might be different ways of playing the samples with or without looping, pitch shifting, etc. The performer selects a musical object, drags it to the appropriate part of the surface, and drops it onto the desired musical process.
Autechre reject the notion that their musical aesthetic is the sound of “machines ‘going wrong’” because they put just as much work and consideration into their music as avant-garde composers.
IDM with strong melodies and cool sounds has a broad appeal, easily broader than the repetitiousness of typical dance music.

He specialises in the electronic music genres of drum and bass, musique concrète (sampled digitally rather than by tape), and acid, albeit with a significant jazz influence.
He says that the restraints musical instruments held in the past were quintessential to music composition and that the insignificance of modern classical music, as a result of new technology, exposes this point.

"Intelligent dance music" now appears to be the genre expanding into foreign territories, or at least into indie rock.

IDM, short for intelligent dance music, is an electronic music genre which began as a style of techno in the early 1990s and moved on to include the textures and sound manipulation methods of Musique concrete and early, "true" industrial bands such as Coil and Nurse With Wound.
Unlike the driving, pounding sound of dancefloor techno, IDM is more cerebral, usually being quite a bit slower, more melodic, less aggressive, and more artistic, quirky and improvisational.
Some IDM is influenced by earlier styles of music: for example the music of B12, Kirk DeGiorgio, and others seems inspired by jazz.

This Saturday at Mac’s Bar, Dykehouse will be playing with a “real” band that effectively sounds like the intelligent dance rhythms he concocted at home not so long ago — there are even rumors that his shows combust into some breed of karaoke nights.
Dykehouse’s music seems mostly to be stuck somewhere in the underground currents of the mid-’90s, which feels like only yesterday in some respects.
Maybe so, and maybe that’s why this music doesn’t strike me as anything that might horrifyingly be referred to as “post-shoegazer,” but instead as a lagging continuation of a once thoroughly explored genre.

Vichas had been producing complex electronic music for years in his home studio -- most recently under the moniker if.then.else -- without releasing any of it.
The lack of response he received from labels he sent demos to, as well as the state of the local experimental music scene, frustrated him enough to start his own label, Emanate, when he got here.
For a label barely a year old and with only four releases, Emanate has carved out a respectable niche in the so-called intelligent dance music movement.
