A somewhat misleading genre designation; it is an acronym for "intelligent dance music".  Unlike most genre designations, it does not encompass any specific compisitional, performance, or patching techniques or timbres.  Rather, IDM designates any piece of electronica which is intended for critical listening in addition to, or instead of, dancing, even though it may still have a danceable beat.
