For a long time now I've been getting a big kick out of downbeat classical accompanied by harsh and/or grating backing beats.
The epitome of what I'm looking for sound-wise is:

Ólafur Arnalds

Venetian Snares

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2PBeKzVhWHY

However, these artists have only put out a few tracks in this vein. Ideally, I'd be looking for an artist that put every other track out like this, if possible. Still, I'm willing to settle for anything if it sounds good.

The more moody the better!

Amen Orchestra - 17 Waves (2006)
http://grooveshark.com/#!/album/17+Waves/2662753
harsh, similar to Venetian Snares


Digitonal - Save Your Light for Darker Days (2008)
http://vimeo.com/3541763
http://grooveshark.com/#!/album/Save+Yo ... ys/3961233
moody, but no strictly glitched beats

It isn't typical of his output, but Aphex Twin's "Icct Hedral" may be of interest:

And Philip Glass's orchestral version of the same track:

See, in mood, Digitonal is pretty much exactly what I'm looking for. And in rhythm, Amen Orchestra is exactly what I'm looking for (although the songs themselves have some really fucking cool instrumentation, at that). If there was an artist other than Venetian Snares that somehow combined the two, that would be what I'm looking for. ;p

I already know, and have listened to almost all of Aphex's stuff.
But thanks anyway, man. It's definitely in the right direction!

Not sure if the beats are 'glitched' but there are some odd time signatures in this symphonic metal

Symphony X - Death of Balance / Lacrymosa

Reminds me of a symphonic Fredrik Thordendal's Special Defects, heh.
WAY off what I'm looking for, friend. I advise you listen to the links I provided in the original post.
