Look at Classical/Western Art Music.

Composers progressively used bigger orchestras to get a wider range of tone colours.

Strauss got up to 100+ by the time of the Alpine Symphony... including a separate horn section outside the hall for a different sound.

Mahler had huge orchestras as well.


Then Schoenberg threw out harmony as we knew it altogether...

Stravinsky caused a riot with a ballet...



All before we had Jazz... which brought on a completely different and new set of progressions... then rock, then hip-hop etc etc bullshit whatever.


The nature of culture and art is that it evolves with society and science and history.

My band - Ex Curia - Prog in an Opeth meets Karnivool meets Porcupine Tree meets Tool kind of way
