The Assignment: Help define “glitch” by glitching something, and explaining what you did.
Step 1: Consider what “glitch” means in music/sound.
Decades ago, when I listened to vinyl records, some of my albums had pops and jumps in them. Today, when I listen on streaming services to those same recordings, I still have the mental note of those glitches.
For me, “glitch” is about an unexpected and mostly-unwanted mistake happening, usually technically. I don’t think I could purposefully “glitch” an existing piece of music. That is not my style.
“Pretty Glitchy” was made around 2011 or 2012, recorded live. I used bad output wires then. I don’t anymore.
Normally, I would delete this kind of track, but there was something interesting about the juxtaposition of a “pretty” piece of music and the creeping glitch happening during the performance, so I kept it and I’m glad I did.
