Glitch Sounds Based on Image Manipulation


Glitch art is the art that makes use of image, video, and sound errors (glitches) intentionally generated by destroying digital data or physically manipulating electronic devices. Such glitch art is interesting in that it expresses unpredictable and accidental beauty. As part of our research into glitch sound creation methods and effects, we tried to create glitch sounds based on image manipulation. Specifically, glitches are generated in audio data using Photoshop image editing software. Audio data cannot normally even be loaded into image editing software, but by using RAW as the audio data format, we made this possible and applied audio processing such as copy, cut & paste, and gradation to the audio data to generate glitches. Our goal is to generate glitched sounds not by random methods but by sophisticated methods based on legitimate manipulations of images, which have different dimensions from those of audio. This research enables the user to enjoy the generation and appreciation of glitch sounds from the perspective of images.
