I found it interesting seeing how perfection is being altered to satisfy the artist’s aesthetic, when it’s supposed to be the other way around. But who determines what’s “supposed” to be and what isn’t? The beauty of glitch allows an open platform for all possibilities. What I found particularly intriguing is the quote “Noise does not have to be loud, but it has to be exclusive…creating in sound a bubble”. What exactly is noise? Where do we draw the line when labeling music and noise?

Glitching music creates a certain affect of pleasure – we like it but we don’t know why. The need to create something distorted and different comes from our ability to alter these sounds in the digital age. Without the means of distorting music, we would not be able to create original content such as this one. Entering the 21st century, music found itself face to face with everyday noises being consolidated with tunes.

I think it’s interesting to see how what is considered weird enter the realm of the ordinary. Failure becomes art, noise becomes music.

We stumbled into the world of glitch during the post-war era, and I find it interesting how artists channeled this into their work and took advantage of the world surrounding them by placing it with music.

  1. I also found that quote to be pleasantly paradoxical. In addition, I liked the way you phrased your opening line about perfection and the artist’s aesthetic and I completely agree with you.


  2. “Noise does not have to be loud, but it has to be exclusive…creating in sound a bubble.” Noise is not only noise. It composes of the the sound and the sound could be music or nothing.


  3. I like your interpretation on why people like glitch music. We should not draw a label between music and noise. Noise can be music too. I believe people like its unusual and unique way to become noise, which give them a new feeling on music.
