Our perception of what is a “glitch” may depend on the history and on the purposes of our listening. Through accumulating deeper, focused listening experiences, and through examining and exploring our motivations for listening to specific musics and sounds, we may find that glitches come and go, their existence being dependent upon our interests as listeners. This presentation investigates several contrasting approaches to listening and illustrates ways in which specific glitches may appear and disappear within them.
