Trance music is experimental electronic (opposite to instrumental) dance music which orients around harmonious sound textures (a.k.a. melody textures).
It originated back in late 80's but became an official genre in 1993. Since then trance producers started to form definition in various ways, what led to creation of many trance sub-genres.. Some of the most known are:
(1) Progressive trance - lowers ratio between melody progression and melody texturing to some solid level..
(2) Epic & Anthem trance - emphasizes sound melody more than melody texturing. This trance-sellout led to big disappointment for original-trance listeners
(3) Psychedelic trance - changed the sound texturing dimension.. original trance tried to make a repetitive sound by combining complex layers of melody textures.. psy-trance tried to make it more progressive in time - by making it more complex in gating
Opposite to trance is techno - which orients around non-harmonic (percussive) textures.
