Impressionism music is a genre that emerged in the late 19th century and is characterized by its focus on creating musical impressions rather than clear-cut melodies. It often features dreamy and atmospheric sounds, with a heavy emphasis on harmony and timbre. The genre is known for its use of unconventional scales and chords, as well as its incorporation of non-musical elements such as nature sounds. Overall, impressionism music seeks to evoke a mood or feeling rather than tell a specific story.
