The term glitch refers to a short fault in a mechanical system, most often occurring in electronics. Glitch music aims to use the sonic artifacts created by these glitches as a component of the music itself. The origins of glitch as an aesthetic within music can be traced back to the early 20th century with Luigi Russolo and his futurist manifesto The Art of Noises. The true rise of glitch hop as a genre however came about during the early 90s with the onset of laptop musicians, or simply electronic music artists who composed their music largely through the use of computer software. Further developing the genre however were members of Warp Records, founded in 1989 in England. Musicians under the label such as Aphex Twin, Prefuse 73, and Autechre helped to better define the glitch sound.
