I've just been reading a book I got called 'Audio Culture, Readings in Modern Music,' and one of its essays - "The Aesthetics of Failure: 'Post-Digital Tendencies in Contemporary Computer Music" (2000) by a composer named Kim Cascone - cites AudioMulch as one of the leading tools for making "glitch" music.
These tools, including Reaktor, Mas/MSP, and something called Crusher-X, "are pressed into action, more often than not with little care or regard for the technical details of DSP theory, and more as an aesthetic wandering through the sounds that these modern tools can create. ... The medium is no longer the message in glitch music: the tool has become the message."
