In the creative world, ingenuity and insanity often come in pairs. In the case of Aaron Funk, the Winnipeg, Canada-based electronic music producer known as Venetian Snares, they're indistinguishable. With many of his releases, like Winnipeg Is a Frozen Shithole, The Chocolate Wheelchair Album, Winnipeg Is A Dogshit Dildo, or A Giant Alien Force More Violent & Sick Than Anything You Can Imagine, it's impossible to tell which sounds were born from the blessed and which ones from the tormented part of his brain.
The 2005 album Rossz csillag alatt született (Hungarian for "Born Under a Bad Star", a Hungarian expression for "cursed from birth") marks another brilliant highlight; masterfully blending classical string and brass arrangements with highly intricate breakcore beats. The concept of the album came when Funk imagined himself as a pigeon on Budapest's Királyi Palota, the Royal Palace (says so Wikipedia).
Buckle up, everybody, this ride is wild.
Legend has it that we architects are selling frozen music, so to gladsomely diversify the origin of our creative process, let's talk about music, shall we? Mixtape wants to be a source of inspiration, as well as the soundtrack of your life in design.
