April 24th, 2009 – I’ve always been interested in the glitch and stutter techniques of electronic, and trip hop artists. Yesterday, I was reading the Create Digital Music post about edIT and I checked out his music. While I’m not really feeling his second album, his first album “Crying Over Pros for No Reason” is fantastic. If you’re interested in hearing his music, check out his MySpace page (ugh…MySpace).
I’ve used basic stutter techniques before, but I’ve never really got into using it beyond a remix gimmick. In a quest to learn more about glitch techniques, I found a great article dating back 5 years ago by Remix Mag. It explains certain types, and ways to create stutters and glitches. It’s not a step by step guide, but it’s a great primer into ways to achieve the glitch sound. You’ll be able to apply the techniques in your favorite DAW. It’s a longer article, but it’s well worth the read if you like the glitch sound.
