What is indie classical?

It is a music what breathes the vivid air of classical traditions and experiment but created by composers and improvisers without education, by self-taught enthusiasts. Indie classical music can use any idioms, forms, styles — it's neoclassical in Busoni's sense as synthesis of all past achievements of music in vivid unity. Hardcore minimalism, neoimpressionsim and neoromanticism, aleatoric and indeterminism — indie classical can accumalate any styles, techinques, methods.
