An interesting thing

The band COIL, composed of Peter "Sleazy" Christopherson and the late Jhonn Balance, once made an album called "Backwards" that was made solely of sampled sounds and keyboards run backwards. The music wasn't backwards, but the elements it was composed of where the backwards samples.

*on edit: Years before the term "Glitch Music" was ever invented, COIL also produced an album called "Worship the Glitch" that, while not solely comprised of recorded glitches from analog synths and others nevertheless used samples of them as the central stuff that the songs were built around.

Worship The Glitch was a collaberation with Elph an alien intelligence.

I never worked out if they were serious about that though.

Sadly John Balance died and Coil is no more (although Throbbing Gristle is back it seems)
