Winnipeg IS a Frozen Shithole!
« on: 04 May 2008, 22:22 »

I just noticed in the Twitterbox.  It's true!  Venetian Snares tells no lies.  I MEAN IT SNOWED HERE TODAY, SERIOUSLY.  Also, a good song.

I'm not too keen on the samples, but, eh. It's Aaron Funk, he'll release something new in another 3 months or so.

Seconded.

Favourite releases/ songs anyone?

My favourite of Aaron's work is the Hospitality EP, that was fucking amazing. Frictional Nevada never gets old.

'Doll Doll Doll' is easily one of the most terrifying albums I have ever heard, not to mention insanely brain-melting. Nothing he's done, however, tops 'Rossz Csillag Allat Született,' if you ask me. I mean, Billie Holiday samples? Intense violin-ing? Inspiration from the idea of an ancient Hungarian folk song that kills anyone who listens to it? What the hell else do you need?

Hospitality is what got me started on VS and is still probably my favorite.

I love just listening to all the fucking insane sequencing shit. Everything the band does is like one long, violent protools orgasm.

I must confess I haven't heard nearly enough of Venetian Snares, a little while ago a friend of mine showed them to me and I loved it but haven't yet capitalized on my love. Szamar Madar is my favourite song thus far, it probably has something to do with me being a music geek but an electronica remix of Elgar's Cello Concerto is amazing in concept alone.

I haven't really checked that much of his stuff out, but I will from now on.

I've already downloaded it off you. Thank you so much for that! I would greatly appreciate the other one.

I got 'nymphomatriarch' a while ago...And to be honest..well, it was good breakcore. That's pretty much all. I didn't find anything about it very sex-related.

It's composed entirely out of samples of Funk and his then girlfriend having sex.

From a purely aural sense, (not composition-wise or recording-wise) it didn't sound that sexy. Just my thoughts on the matter. Still good though.

I would like to emphasise: vsnares is not a band. It's a single guy, mostly using Renoise and a variety of hardware samplers (he's moved on to include a 303 in Detrimentalist).

Speaking of which, Bebikukorica Nigiri is quite good.

In general though, his stuff is a bit too self indulgent (not to mention [probably intentionally] badly mastered). The whole 'loudness is not loud without silence as contrast' argument should be taken into account with his stuff. It's still better than speedcore though.

Also, to those who loved Rossz: You should really try a hark of the jungle tracks from Aphex's DrukQs. Really.

And speaking more of the single man behind Venetian Snares...this is damned near the coolest thing I have ever seen:

From theLitany Website:
"This just in from cEvin Key:::

Did a jam the other night with a few guys.
I was thinking wow, what a lineup

Alejandro (nin) buchla
Baseck (sonic death rabbit) moog
Cevin Key (skinny puppy) tenori-on
Cyrus Rex moog/pedals
Databomb electroplankton/909
Otto Von Shirach 909/pedals
Aeron (Venetian snares) 808/pedals
Jeff Squig analog solutions modular
John Frushante (chili peppers) 303 redfish

Quite the jam...!!!! Yes it was recorded."
