Aaron Funk (born January 11, 1975), known as Venetian Snares, is a Canadian electronic musician based in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He is widely known for innovating and popularising the breakcore genre, and is one of the most recognisable artists to be signed into Planet Mu, an experimental electronic music label. His signature style involves meticulously complex drums, eclectic use of samples, and odd time signatures, particularly 74.His 2005 release, Rossz Csillag Alatt Született, combined breakbeats with orchestral samples, and was released to critical acclaim, helping bring Funk and the genre into popularity within the experimental electronic music community.


I find when I'm more awake, I tend to think more of the structure and movement of a tune, abrupt transitions, etc.; things becoming more composed.




The tracks on 'Sleep' were recorded live to 2-track. I did a fadeout or two of them, but that's really it.




I love the immediacy of those old analog machines; it's really inspiring. You just set them up to play, and they go, playing the same thing until you switch the pattern.




I just do these 'Sleep' type tracks when the situation presents itself. I never set out to do them, like wait all day until I'm really tired or something. Gotta come natural.




I believe the world to be a muffin pan, and there certainly are a lot of muffins here.
