Worship the Glitch!
Thursday, 28 April 2005
Dan Lycett of the always interesting Breakingthings is organising ‘Glitch:Aesthetics’ an event dedicated to Glitch Art , the Visual manifestations of computer malfunction and Data Corruption. Glitch has played a big part in the granular synthesis scene in recent years, most notably in the esoteric alchemical drones of Coil and the crunching post-industrial dance of Autechre. Now it seems the visual glitch is finally getting the attention it deserves!
Heavyweight glitch commando BEFLIX will presenting some of his new work and discussing the methodologies behind it.
Iman Morandi will be presenting his research findings on Glitch Visuals, which with BEFLIX will find its way along with a global collection of Glitch Art into a forthcoming book, ‘Glitch Art & Design Aesthetics’.
This Free Event is being held on Saturday 7th May at Dean Clough in Halifax beginning at 10am.
