Glitch is an expansive term; whether it be dreamy and exploratory, fast-paced and eclectic – or consistent and composed, the genre is open to many possibilities and interpretations. Born from digital malfunctions and audio anomalies, glitch has grown exponentially as a cohesive, yet experimental sub-genre. With focus primarily placed on processed percussive elements, the term no longer only refers to dizzying, overwhelming techniques.
With that being said, we ventured forth into Bandcamp to find some of the most recent and compelling glitch releases to share with you.
