    Venetian Snares - Szerencsétlen

    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.

      VS is amazing.  What a weird place to find a post on him though, or maybe not.

      I always see the relationship to architecture or spatial design when I listen to his stuff. Especially the drum sequences are very three-dimensional, almost like a sculpture.

      Reminds me the work of a dance company led by Debora Colker. I'll check! Here I let you a video introducing one of her work, Cruel, the sound seems closed to Venetian Snares. Thanks for this post!

      I don't even recall when I first heard VS, but immediately saw a correlation between their work and architecture. Saw this when first posted, and realized I never came around to say so.

      Excellent taste, particularly good choice when one is in the throes of 'production mode.'
