The first industrial artists experimented with varying degrees of noise, production techniques and what, at the time, were considered controversial topics. Their production was not only limited to musical output. It also included mail art, performance art, installation pieces and other art forms.[1]


Originally, the term solely referred to music created by Industrial Records and related artists. As time progressed, the term began to refer to artists either directly influenced by the original movement, artists using an "industrial" aesthetic such as imagery devised around mechanical objects and industry itself and, more distantly, artists who were only minimally, often not at all, influenced or inspired by Industrial Records and related artists. The broadening of the term's musical definition has led to an overwhelming number of sub-genres and lines of influence.

Terminology

Industrial was a term meant by its creators to evoke the idea of music created for a new generation of people, previous music being more "agricultural." A fatalist-but-realistic, slightly misanthropic and often intensely dehumanized or mechanical atmosphere was present in the music and the utilization of gritty, hands-on technologies and techniques, rather than any concrete compositional detail, was a common practice. Another common matter of industrial music is the use of found objects, such as trash cans and bottles. Found objects are materials found (such as pebbles, candy wrappers, or leaves) and not made (such as inks, paints, and crayons. ...

Post-industrial developments

Throughout the early to mid 1980s, the post-industrial movement began to emerge around the world. Coil, arguably the largest contributor to the evolution of Industrial music's original ideas, was formed by Jhonn Balance and Peter Christopherson after departing from Psychic TV in 1982 (debuting with How to Destroy Angels in 1984). Highly eclectic, through their career they touched on everything from acid house to drone music, the occult always a major influence in the group's themes and approach. Other acts like Skinny Puppy from Vancouver, Canada (debuting with Back and Forth in 1984), Front 242, the pioneers of EBM from Belgium (debuting with Geography in 1982), and Foetus from Australia (debuting with Deaf in 1981) are some of the most notable second-wave artists who helped popularize and redefine the genre amongst the underground music culture (and laying the foundations for most future sub-divisions of the genre). Post-industrial is a term used to refer to a grouping of music genres related to the original usage of the term Industrial Music by Industrial Records through either influence or direct involvement, such as power noise, power electronics, technoid, types of experimental music and dark ambient. ...

In the early 1980s the Chicago-based record label Wax Trax! successfully helped to expand the industrial music genre into the more accessible "elektro-industrial" genre. At the forefront were bands such as Chicago's Ministry, My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult and Die Warzau as well as the German import, KMFDM.

By the late 80s, the scene had grown considerably as the music became a staple of the club scene - artists were emerging from all over the world and record sales of key artists were increasing rapidly. One of the biggest contributors to the new brand of industrial music was Nine Inch Nails' comparatively commercially-structured Pretty Hate Machine, released in 1989. NIN performances began breaking the style into mainstream rock and punk culture at that point. Ultimately the band's accomplishments, alongside the likes of Ministry, led to the further development of not only the style as a whole, but of a number of rock and to an even greater degree, metal fusion sub-genres to later emerge.

Royalty free corporate and industrial music is becoming an important part of corporate functions in every industry, from computer consulting and technology fields to publishing, film and television.
Royalty free music allows professionals to amass an impressive collection of corporate and industrial music at a price that is extremely low compared to the on-going fees charged by most major music providers for relatively limited use of their music selections.
With royalty free corporate and industrial music, professionals get tracks and albums of music in many different invigorating styles such as rock and techno along with those that are more subtle and inspiring, such as pieces of original royalty free music in the light jazz, light rock and even classical music genres.
Industrial music - Uncyclopedia, the content-free encyclopedia (569 words)
Industrial music is a fusion of contemporary jazz and throwing chainsaws into electric blenders.
Industrial music started in the late-1970s as a tribute to legendary bands such as ABBA, The Bee-Gees, and the married couple Donny and Marie Osmond.
Some industrial fans even cite songs as using words from the books and essays of Nietzsche and Karl Marx, but this preposterous, as Britney Spears is the only musical artist that was given permission to do this by the authors themselves.
