ABSTRACT
Chance music is a technique of composing and recording that emerged as a continuum for a search of alternatives to the tonal system in music in the beginning of 20th century and it first appeared in the USA in 1950's and in some European countries like Germany, Austria, and France. The American composer, John Cage, is one of the leading people who applied this technique. Chance music is exactly the opposite of complete control of music (serialism). In this kind of music, the composers have given place to chance and coincidence and used graphic symbols. The aim of the music composed by the chance method is not to destroy art or to be nonsense but to add color and joy to music.
