Venetian Snares

Aaron Funk, a producer of hardcore drum'n'bass noise, gained a profile in experimental techno circles with his signing to the Planet µ label run by Mike Paradinas (aka µ-Ziq). It's a tribute to his production prowess that his base of Winnipeg, Manitoba, hasn't prevented IDM enthusiasts around the world from investigating his recordings. Funk's first release was Shiver in Eternal Darkness, an EP for the Isolate label, followed by Doll Doll Doll for Hymen and Greg Hates Car Culture for History of the Future. When Paradinas heard the latter, he immediately hired Funk for Planet µ. The first Venetian Snares LP, Making Orange Things (a co-production with Speedranch), dropped in early 2001; following in short order were four more LPs or mini-LPs, all released before the end of 2002. Funk continued recording for a variety of labels, including Hymen, and has also recorded as Snares Man! and the less elusive Senetian Vnares. The following years continued to be prolific for Venetian Snares, among whose releases were 2004's Huge Chrome Cylinder Box Unfolding, 2005's Hungarian-inspired Rossz Csillag Allat Szuletett, and 2006's Cavalcade of Glee and Dadaist Happy Hardcore Pom Poms and Hospitality, all of which came on Planet µ. ~ John Bush

This is just a barrage of sounds put together to create a specific soundscape. It feels Tekken-ish. I'm tired of every Tekken sound being dubstep. More breakbeat-is h type sounds are welcome.

One definitely sees a change in Aaron's music over time. Go back as far as Winnipeg is a Frozen Shithole and you'll notice a more aggressive, drum-focused sound that seemingly intends to scare the listener, especially on albums like Meathole. Come back to more recent albums and it's much more melodic and theme-driven . Great music!

This kind of makes me think about how music is defined. You take some sounds and put them together, and you call it music. The way it's arranged somehow pleases you, but other combinations of sounds you don't like. If you actually sit down and think about it for a while, it seems strange.

WTF IS THIS MUSIC IT SCARES THE LIVING S**T OUT OF ME

Another crap bio for an amazing artist. For a while every IDM act was, at best, ok but still not Aphex Twin. Now I judge every new bit of laptop chaos by the standards of Venetian Snares and Otto Von Schirach.

About time this beautiful sound is getting recognition.

V Snares f**king rules. He's constantly pushing the limits of expression and creativity with his music. People who denounce it as noise or the sounds of children playing with kitchen utensils just aren't ready to step out of their stagnant s**t pool of pop radio and bubblegum rap.

Odd coincidence, my newspaper delivery guy's name is Aaron Funk. I don't live in Canada, though...

It's OK if someone doesn't like Venetian Snares or any IDM for that manner...

Its their loss that they never took the time to actually listen to the beauty in the musical development throughout each and every song; They're too impatient to give it the listen it actually deserves, and I feel sorry for them, but I don't resent the fact that they dislike it. Some people just have single-minde d music tastes and can't step away from their norm.

Why is Venetian Snares one of the only breakcore artists on Pandora? C'mon Pandora, get with the times! This s**t is primed to attack, help stoke the fire!

Funny. I took an immediate liking to Venetian Snares after only my first exposure - "Twirl."

At first I thought that he merely played random notes, but there's a method to his madness and I can say I enjoy the complexity of his music.

Not liking Venetian Snares is a failing point of any individual.

Please finish the album discography. Huge Chrome Cylinder Box Unfolding is my favorite album. Where's the rest of it?

HAHAHA! These comments are HILARIOUS!

The aural compilation of sounds that is the artwork of Alex Funk (aka Venetian Snares) is an acquired taste. Like a fine wine or a good scotch, there are layers of subtleties that add elements to the overall experience which to the uninitiated can seem rather harsh at first.

Distracting, obnoxious, disruptive.. . . Maybe if one was in the mood to hear a child play with pots and pans, this would be appropriate. For most, this can hardly be considered music. Aaack! Now it sounds like a kid playing a gameboy in front of a drunken marching band! I guess everything has its fans.=>

not sure what jezzys reffering to by "underground beats", imo, venetian snares has brought it to the next level more then most anyone else i've heard when it comes to electronic music.

Underground beats like this have been around for 15 years or more. You would think someone could bring it to the next level???
Very boring to listen to.
