If you play live, rather then snag you played noise to a minidisk, you
can set up a chain of distortion or EQ pedals and tap dance on them to
glitch the on-going musical phrase. Also, some old phaser stomp boxes
when forced to work at very low resolution by feeding them an
extremely low input level tend to start changing sound phase in a step
for step way rather than the usual continuous flow of phase shifting.
Or why not try our friend Henry Kaiser's trademark technique to use
square wave modulation - a square wave can be trusted to glitch up
just about anything is set to modulate.
