It appears that the Connor brothers from the glitchy electro act Bitstream have started recording again but now separately. Dave under the name Uexküll and Steve uses the moniker adapta. I’m very much looking forward following the progress of the Connor brothers respective projects.
And 4 tracks by adapta

Here’s a free sample pack of glitches from Dennis Harms at Bronto Scorpio Music. To download: click here
“Don’t expect pseudo analog stuff here! You get 120 weird, digital noises with this pack! These sounds are perfect for Autechre, Richard Devine, Aphex Twin like tracks, but can also add some special elements to other tracks. I designed these sounds over the last few months and thought it would be cool to share them with you. The pack contains 120 24Bit/44Khz wave files and a simple Kontakt (3.5 or higher) instrument where the samples are mapped across the keyboard. Mod- and pitchwheel do some crazy things in this instrument too!” – brontoscorpiomusic
Ableton Live guru Tom Cosm explains his approach to creating “a glitching effect that compliments whatever you want to glitch. I have named this effect Clitch”.
In this tutorial video I explain a unique way of glitch up your audio, be it synths, drums or vocals.
The technique works like this
- Add an audio effect rack after what you want to glitch, and give it 128 chains
- Give each chain a unique effect (beat repeat, filter etc)
- Midi asign a range of 128 keys (C-2:G8) to the Chain Selection Ruler
- Create a new “trigger” midi track
- Send the MIDI of that trigger track out to the IAC driver
- Either duplicate the MIDI clip for your synthline, or extract a groove from a sample and drag it from the groove pool onto the new trigger clip
- Add MIDI effects to the trigger track so that the new notes in the MIDI clip do new and intersting things.
This is probably the most advanced tutorial I have made, so I encourage you to watch the video as I feel I do a much better job explaining it than I do writing it down!
In a world of laptop based software studios and vintage synthesizers it’s good to know that someone is still trying to make real world physical instruments for the future. The guys over at Folktek make beautifully handcrafted mystery- noise- and bleep- instruments.
