A Million Tiny Glitches
An electronic musical.
This is a world where death exists. Loss is hard. Grief is like a river. It's powerful and you can't hold it back.
This is the story of a woman who goes looking for her friend – a friend who has vanished inside a city of his own imagination. Both have lost someone they love and it's cracked the landscape of their lives. A Million Tiny Glitches is a weird and emotional dream quest through those fractures.
A Million Tiny Glitches has grown from our personal experiences of grief over the last few years – vivid and mysterious; you feel it in your heart and your gut. We believe songs can hold emotion very directly, so we thought we'd make a musical that goes deep and feels modern; that embraces sadness without being sombre. Something that's influenced by Björk and ANOHNI, Haruki Murakami and China Miéville. And yeah, there'll be a band.
