    Default Combining different styles of music?

    First, is there a term so when I search google I do not immediately see dj mixing tips? Second, what I mean is lets say you wanted to write in a style that combined Brahms and Penderecki. Not that I want to do this exact thing but I wanted to pick two composers who were at odds style wise. So any suggestions?

    polystylism

    also related is musical collage and "Ivesian" (although those are more about composing with actual musical quotations).

    Well this term isn't for orchestral music but it does describe what you're referring to. In the pop world the word is Mashup. Linkin Park is a great example. Of course polystylism sounds more high falutin.

    Just Do it. There's nothing out there.
