Venetian Snares announces collaborative album with Daniel Lanois

Venetian Snares and Daniel Lanois will release a collaborative album, Venetian Snares X Daniel Lanois, via Timesig and Planet Mu on May 4th, 2018.

The breakcore artist Aaron Funk AKA Venetian Snares and Daniel Lanois may seem a strange pair at first, but the artists have been working together for years now. “The path began in 2014, after Lanois reached out to Venetian Snares (Aaron Funk) as a fan of his work. The project started to take root in Summer of 2016, after Funk hung around Toronto between shows. Taking his gear to Lanois’ studio, the two began to play for the first time together in what would prove to be a formative moment in their creative journey together.” The LP was recorded at Buddhist temple-turned-studio in Toronto, as Funk laid the groundwork with drums while Lanois rode the pedal steel, weaving their sounds together in a new sonic tapestry.
