The term isn't used much anymore, but there was a time where cutting-edge, "avant-garde" music was much debated.
The term loosely means "ahead of it's time" But, it can mean anything you consider innovative or experimental, or unique.

John Barry: The Dutchman (yes, it's literally one theme, but it's all percussive; would Edgard Varese have liked it?)

As it happens, just the other day, I listened to Williams "Images" for the first time in forever. It's great!

I tried to think of a Barry score but couldn't.
Thanks

Another one for the list:

THE DEVILS (1971) - Peter Maxwell Davies, Stomu Yamash'ta, David Munrow.

I so long for the original soundtrack recording for this. (I'm aware of re-recordings of Maxwell Davies' music, but I'm talking about the actual entire score as recorded in 1971.)

One of the greatest is Richard Rodney Bennett's The Accuser (1977) / L'imprécateur (original title). Incredible score!

Perhaps a debatable choice, but Bernard's "Little Girl Lost" is a bulletproof masterpiece, and avante garde in its own way. His combination of instruments worked so well...some of it sounds almost unmistakably aleatoric.

I also love Mr. Goldsmith when he goes experimental.

Williams' IMAGES is high up there on my list. But I have loads others. Will mention a few when I get more time.

I'm sure you will.
Please limit your choices to films American filmgoers have smilefamiliarity.

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid by Bacharach diverts from traditional western expectations with a Pop score.

2001: A Space Odyssey -- Kubrick shrugs off a traditional score by Alex North in favor of 'timeless' classical music.

The Missouri Breaks by John Williams always struck me as bizarre, maybe to match Brando's character.

Zardoz by David Munrow - those Main Titles are just plain creepy and out there. (There was a 45 single release by a group called Zzebra. Check it out on YouTube.)

The Omega Man by Ron Grainer who provided a relaxing lounge vibe and a very catchy theme to a horror/sci-fi story.

No, why should he?
Go ahead, Thor. We love to learn new things!

Images and Planet of the Apes are my two favorites. Fantastic Voyage is also, well, fantastic.
