“Glitch Robot” is a robotic music instrument dedicated to glitch sounds. Sounds from the in-between of error and prediction, little sounds that are amplified, small sounds made big. The installation uses old hard disks, metallic tongues, relays and other mechanic devices to create sound textures that are used in electronic music – with robots!
Dates of release: Sept. 2014.
Crew: Moritz Simon Geist (Concept + Realization), Sebastian Piatza, Claudia Lill.

“Around the late 40s the atom was split… We discovered that everything was forever changed, when we discovered the word could be cut up, that sound could be cut up. That everything having to do with culture could be cut up and reassembled in ways that didn’t exist before. That will be seen as the most radical, important thing that happened this century” – Genesis P Orridge, Modulations
GlitchBreaks from Alex Matheu is a powerful iOS loop manipulation tool. Anyone who has seen, heard or played with it can vouch for its quality and flexibility. It puts buffer override, scrubbing, beat-juggling, and pitch and time stretching all within the palm of your hand, cheaply. We got so excited about this App we contacted GlitchBreaks about partnering, and the fruit of that can be seen in the 20 new free factory loops we provided for version 1.03.
We are pleased to premiere our first loop-pack intended for use with GlitchBreaks. Containing 49 high quality abstract 1 bar loops, this pack is designed for the glitchhead who can’t get enough. Already glitchy in their nature these loops will send you spinning off into microcosms of uncontrolled electronic pleasure when paired with GlitchBreaks. Prepare to travel down the rabbit hole, and bring your headlamp because the journey will get dark, dirty and shocking!
All loops are provided in 16-bit as well as high quality 24-bit files, for use in any desktop DAW and numerous other iOS apps.
49 16-bit/44.1 khz Wav files
49 24-bit/48 khz Wav files
All files tagged with BPM (tempo) and initials.
Installation Instructions for GlitchBreaks included.

Background info from the author:
I have never tried making a song with glitching effects. Althought there isn’t a lot of that in this, so far, I am going to try to incorporate much of that effect within this song (considering that’s what makes this music part of the “Glitch Electronic” genre. I long the result so far. But let me know what you think in the comments :3
