Postmodern music often explores the confluence of genres previously thought incompatible. The boundaries between "popular music" (which often draws from a variety of cultures) and what is commonly considered "art music" (which often draws from a narrower cultural spectrum) are frequently blurred or obliterated. Although art music has reflected some mixing of cultures for centuries, and some art music composers in the first half of the twentieth century made use of genre mixing, postmodern music is distinct from pre-1960s art music compositions. Technology has facilitated access to a multitude of international musical styles. While baroque, classical, romantic, and modern composers may have had access to some music from outside their own cultures, such access cannot compare to that presently available through recordings, radio, and the Internet, nurturing a postmodern sensibility in contemporary composers` works.
