"Post-classic" tonality has advocates such as Elena Kats-Chernin, Michael Daugherty and Tan Dun.

"An increasing number of composers mix western and non-western instruments, including gamelan from Indonesia, Chinese traditional instruments, ragas from Indian Classical music. There is also an exploration of non-Western tonalities, even in relatively traditionally structured works. This can be in the context of post-minimalist works, such as Janice Giteck 's Balinese influenced works, or in the context of post-classic tonality, such as in the music of Bright Sheng , or in the context of thoroughly modernist styled works."
