Sonorism is an approach to musical composition that focuses on the characteristics, quality, and texture of sound. This emphasis on sound is inherintly connected with a search for new types of sounds, and sonorism relies on experimenting with instruments to create novel playing techniques. As a movement, sonorism was initiated in the 1960s in the new avantgarde of Polish music.
