Even the smoothest running system can encounter a glitch or two. In digital music, bit rate reduction, digital distortion, hardware noise, computer bugs, crashes and system errors can ruin an otherwise flawless musical composition or performance, and be the source of endless agony and frustration. But sometimes, used in the right way, glitches can work a kind of magic on an otherwise mundane sound.
What is interesting about the glitch aesthetic is that it is hard to tell sometimes what sounds are "erroneously" produced, and which are intentional.
This week's Deedlecast is presented in its unedited entirety, glitches and all, and hopefully better for it.
