Top Definition
A style of music originating in the 20th century. It is characterised by repeated motifs, varied slightly over a long period. Also common are long notes played over these repeated sections.

Interestingly enough, John Cage's famous silent piece 4'33'' is not considered minimalist, even though it is the most repetitive and minimal song ever composed.

Guy #2: No that's a Philip Glass CD. It's minimalist music.
