Inspired by the producers and production techniques present in glitch music that we have looked at this week. Let's finally delve into a production carried out in-house here at Funkeln. ‘Glitch Works’ is an experimental ambient production that uses digital glitch and pitch manipulation techniques. After first producing several synthesised pad textures, these were then burnt to CD. The CDs were purposefully scratched which then produced fragmented rhythms through the time-based errors created by the CDJ jumping over the scratches.
In order to produce these fragmented rhythms at the desired tempo, the ‘wide 100%’ pitch manipulation setting on a Pioneer CDJ player was used to slow down playback. Slowing down the CD playback, therefore, meant the synthesised pads had to be produced at high octaves in order to still produce a good amount of upper harmonics when pitched down.
Further rhythmic patterns and layers were produced by chopping and editing the glitched recording, where group bussing was employed for the application of overall filtering to sculpt the sound.
