I don't think you're quite understanding the concept. It's exploiting the flaws in the recording process to show that digital flaws are inherently there. That's what the recording IS. Glitches aren't invented, they are just demonstrated. They are there the whole time along - I won't get into digital audio theory unless you really want me to, but essentially digital recording is only possible because of the amount of time that goes into actually correcting the flaws in the conversion processes. Dithering is a good example of quantisation error correction, and anti-aliasing is another example of correction. Most of what we record into the computer is corrected heavily by processing.
