    This one is a tough call and they aren't exactly brand new to folks here, but Brandt Brauer Frick comes to mind...techno done sans computers. I'd argue it's process as much as product in a case like this, but I find them pretty impressive:

    Again, repeat from elsewhere but it's awesome and I feel like re-sharing

    Anna Meredith. Again, electronica at the core but with a pretty fascinating reconfiguration for live acoustic instruments (I've seen her twice and they're the real deal), plus fun experimenting with doses of minimalism, odd time signatures/syncopation, and more. Also...she gets that music can be wonky, weird but also fun as hell.

    The one thing that doesn't fit your initial description though...totally not rolling the windows up for this one. BLAST IT

    I still don't quite understand the intention of this thread based upon "Evolved".

    For the Avant-Guarde, look no further than the difficult to listen to "Art Bears"
    I have never heard a band of any genre so beloved and dismissed at the same time.

    I'm having difficulty defining it myself. I guess it would go something like:

    Evolved=Unconventional=Showing many unrelated influences=Music that requires a familiarity with many types of music to appreciate what they composer/band has done?

    Art Bears - sans quotation marks - are a household name here at PE, at least with a few dozen prominent contributors. So are pretty much some 200 other artists in a considerably close proximity to their aesthetic, and there's nothing particularly "difficult" about this approach unless you're rather unversed in the annales of progressive rock development from 1968 and on.

    Whoever dismisses Art Bears? And on what grounds? Strange.

    Never stumbled upon anyone dismissing them. And they were a familiar name to me since the early 80s.

    If we're not looking just for new artists creating genuinely new progressive music, I'd throw Squarepusher into the mix.

    Never hurts to ask!

    Ben Neill is interesting in that regard for me; I agree he would fit our semi-nebulous bill, but I also first encountered him in the late 90's via the fairly awesome album Goldbug. So, there's a time aspect to this I guess...when someone discovers someone for the first time *shrug*

    I had a Ben Neill album "Mainspring" back when it came out -- 1980s? -- but it went away when I sold my record collection. I rediscovered him recently, and I think the trip-hop thing he's doing now is new since I knew him (my local CD store had him filed under "Dance"(!))

    Been looking for a download of "Mainspring" to refresh my memory. So far unsuccessful.

    I haven't got that one, so I'm not sure I can help with that. But both Goldbug and Tryptical from the late 90's are stellar, especially the former.

    I'll take the plunge and risk an eyeroll emoticon(.

    Skalpel is a duo of Polish musicians/DJ's who put out this cd(Skalpel) about 15 years ago.I dug it at the time, bought the cd and recently dusted it off for a listen.

    These guys sample Polish jazz from the 60's/70's.Maybe this'll float yer boat.

    This is all done with samples? Offhand it sounds like fairly conventional jazz -- NICE jazz -- so no eyerolls necessary. If it's really done completely by two turntablists with no instruments that makes it even more impressive.

    In interviews they say they use turntables, a PC and samplers.They say they occasionally use keyboards but very seldom.

    Yeah that's nice stuff.

    Another "evolved" pocket of musicians (IMO) is the Bill Laswell/Aiyb Dieng/Nicky Skopelitis/Wayne Shorter/Pharoah Sanders/Bernie Worrell/Jonas Hellborg coterie. Some fascinating mashups coming out of that crew.

    You must lump Nick Bärtsch Ronin in too?

    There are only two kinds of music in the world: What I like and what I don't like. Enjoy your version of it for yourself and ignore all critics. It's music, it ain't some fundamentalist religion.
    No matter what anyone says, you are the decider of how you will listen to music.

    ^ Thanks for setting everyone straight. It was absolutely called for. One can never receive too much elevated moral from above; we surely need that to fight off such sickening spectacle as on display in this completely horrible thread.

    As evolved as I get is Moondog, Harry Partch, and Sun Ra, and that stuff is decades old.
