Statement:

“Glitch moves, but glitch also blocks. It incites movement while simultaneously creating an obstacle, it helps us celebrate failure as a generative force, a new way to take on the world.”
• Legacy Russell, Glitch Feminism: A Manifesto

“By allowing certain elements to be directed off by odd values, such as using physically imperfect tools to render a perfectly ordered set of instructions, generative artists create space that allows each piece to land somewhere between order and chaos.”

• Pierre Paslier, A.R.E, curator of Generative Hub

Coming together to share knowledge and skills, glitch.cool expands and flourishes as a collective, running a large discord server where artists can join, chat, look for feedback, and share their art. One of the initial reasons they banded together was the idea of resource sharing. Their internal members cover a wide variety of skills which can be shared among them. Joining their forces led to inspiring collaborations and allowed room for transformation and exploration across both music producers and visual artists.

Following generative art techniques and sound collage in this room you will find audiovisual generative works from the glitch.cool collective members Meii, Vaeprism, Abroxis, HeavyHearted, Hlessi and Jim Kimchi accompanied by Ulisepsal, Wireframe Wolves, Cloudman and a collaboration between Dith Dsgn and Sunnk. Hover your mouse on their work to find more about their practice and creative universe.

Fragment

Artist name Wireframe Wolves
Artwork Description:

"A major part of the glitch aesthetic to me is the short repetition of audio samples. This can happen, for instance, when your computer crashes and it continuously loops whatever happened to be in the operating system's audio buffer at the time. This sound is so recognizable as a glitch because the perfect repetition of audio is uncommon in most contexts. At the same time, rapidly repeating sounds gain a musical quality by virtue of repetition. In this piece, I wanted to explore the use of this type of sample repetition as the basis for a musical composition. I started with a short audio clip from another composition I'm working on. I used Ableton to sample this clip at random positions, durations, and pitches. After generating several minutes of audio this way, I began chopping it up and arranging pieces of it into sections. Most of the final audio in this piece consists only of these samples. Only a short part towards the end contains a separate percussion layer; most of the percussive sounds were baked into the samples! I wanted to connect the visual aspect of this piece together with the audio. To do this, I've rendered a set of simple geometric primitives. Similar to the audio samples used as the basis for the music, these primitives change positions, shape, and colour based on the audio. These transformations are done in real-time based on the audio spectrogram at each frame."

Valid

Artist name Jim Kimchi
Artwork Description:

Jim Kimchi is an electronic music artist with over ten years of experience in creating ambient, techno and idm with heavy lofi and organic elements, under the moniker "halvknægten". Since discovering fellow hyperglitch artists Woulg and Vaetxh, he has delved more into the glitch aesthetic in music, co-founding glitch.cool and evolving his methods under the name Jim Kimchi. Working primarily with the concept of "fermenting" sound, Jim works with generative sound design and composition through a variety of techniques such as resampling and micro editing while always focusing on rhythmic unstability, percussive focus, high complexity, overwhelming ambiences, and dry, textural bass design in order to achieve the sounds at home in Hyperglitch. Jim’s most recent EP "Pure Gravy" released on Paracusia Media and since then he has been working on remixes, compilations, and his next releases.

Indomitable

Artist name Abroxis
Artwork Description:

Some techniques that have become a staple in his sound design revolve around iterative resampling and time stretching - a quasi-random approach to crafting melodic structures - as well as experimenting with various ways of breaking and glitching sounds. The project aims to dive deeply into more technical and intricate arrangements, with Hyperglitch being the archetypal route through which this can be achieved. The sound of Abroxis is something that took a considerable leap forward over the last three years, shortly after discovering early Hyperglitch artist Woulg and the related community. From here, Abroxis co-founded and contributed heavily to the glitch.cool collective, which aims to push current boundaries surrounding glitch art, as well as to provide glitch and new media artists with free resources for creative purposes and a platform for communication and networking. Most recently, Abroxis helped create and participated in Glitch[dot]fest, an online audio-visual stream that showcased works from glitch[dot]cool members. Shortly after, his work was featured as part of the Creative Code Festival, both online and on location in New York.

Ashen Leaves

Artist name Hlessi
Artwork Description:

Hlessi is an experimental electronic music project by Benjamin Brody. The aesthetic of Hlessi is heavily influenced by glitch IDM (Intelligent Dance Music) artists Rob Clouth/Vaetxh, Max Cooper, woulg, and their fellow glitch[dot]cool co-members. Hlessi's work features experimental sound design, foley recordings, sampled modular synthesizers, and iterative resampling and destructive micro editing techniques. Hlessi is Benjamin's sonic exploration to convey the dynamic nature of human experience and emotion through unfamiliar sounds and evolving arrangements.

Transmission

Artist name Cloudman
Artwork Description:

"The objective of my recent musical pursuit has been to capture and preserve the novel sensation of hearing a song for the first time by cultivating an environment in which the track can emerge without dictating and composing each individual part. Through a combination of my own production, randomized systems and live performance, the track will never be heard the same way twice, allowing it to take form without feeling too much like something I made whilst simultaneously retaining its original novelty. This piece primarily serves as a proof of concept upon which to expand this method of production. All audio and video were performed and captured in real-time."

Hope

Artist name Vaeprism
Artwork Description:

Vaeprism is an electronic musician and digital/glitch artist from Sydney, Australia. Motivated by chance as a foundation for the creative process, he seeks a flow state that embodies free expression in whatever form it manifests. Inspired by artists such as John Cage and particularly the notion that the highest purpose is to have none, thus putting one in accordance with nature.
