Experimental music doesn't have to be IDM. If you like IDM though, you should check SquarePusher & Aphex Twin out:

All the music I listen to is experimental in some sense. Something like this?

Not IDM, but experimental:

Not really IDM either, but another quite experimental genre (fun fact is that the screams you hear are recordings from a mental hospital during WW2:

I quite like Orphan Fairytale. I guess this is Experimental? I dunno.I don't really know what is and isn't Experimental anymore. People call Throbbing Gristle Experimental, they don't sound out there to me.

Of course I forgot Boards Of Canada, they're classics:

Then we have dear 'ol Tycho. He's not so old though, quite new if you compare him with the others:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mehLx_Fjv_c

But you might already know'em though. They are quite famous.

Anyway, here's a list of good IDM producers. So... if it was IDM you were looking for:
Autechre
The Black Dog
Apparat

I was expecting the pace to pick up and intensify or something, but... it never happened! :(

Thanks :)
I'm always trying to spread the "Aphex Twin"-love on Newgrounds by using his songs in my animations. It works quite well! I get tons of PMs asking where the awesome music is from, even though I've clearly written "Music By: Aphex Twin" in the credits of the animation :3
Guess some people on NG just can't read xS

Why plural? :O

Anyway, I recently found this awesome IDM-song., and I must say, it's quite different from much of the IDM I've listened to:

Anyone notice that all experimental artists have experimental names? They should experience with normal names for experimental music, just to... experiment...

Probably not the recognition it deserved either.

I've never seen it before.

I'm an experimental musician!

Also, one of my favourite bands is XDM: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AHS2z7195Pk

Hmmm.

I'd recommend downloading the Soma.FM Cliqhop stream in MP3 128k and go from there. Pretty dissonant experimental IDM by any measure, but fine if you don't mind oddness. Also, VERY hipster-friendly.

Other recommendations off the top of my head would be Ochre (bandcamp), The Flashbulb (bandcamp), Wisp and Bartel (bandcamp).

While there's more, they've already either been mentioned or I haven't given them a good, long listen to determine the appeal.

Also yes, BBNG is dark experimental jazz ;)
