venetian snares: songs about my cats (question)

Recommended Posts

haven't been able to find much info on this album, but it sounds like homie sampled his cats for alot fo tracks, and then on another track it sounds like the cat walked across the keyboard and it was sampled, there's more weird shit on the album...i dunno...maybe Joker or some other venetian snares fans can tell me a little more about this album?

i've heard a chunk of vsnaresz shit, and i'm still

waiting to hear something that is worth anything,

most of all the hype.

understandable. some people don't like choppy beats and bass. i can dig that. i don't listen to aphex twin anymore because it just kinda wore on me.

awhile back i heard about vsnares working on an album that is 100% samples of him having sex with his girl.

 

sounded kinda cool, havent heard anything recently.

Actually, I got a copy of that disc from Dibs but for some reason it wouldn't work. So I haven't heard it. However, it brings up something relative...

 

About five or six years ago Cevin Key of Skinny Puppy released a CD called Music for Cats. And I haven't listened to the disc in a long time but I think it was along the same lines as what you're describing from VS. So I'll have to dig out that Cevin Key disc and give it another listen.

consider that this is totally a taste thing and i'm kinda a dick

when it comes to music, but choppy beats and

bass is a really small framework and

fucking loads of people do 'choppy beats and bass' stuff these days,

and loads of them are technically great at it.

now everyone is looking to see where it's going to go next, and i

personally feel vsnaresz has gotten a little too much play as

this wonder kid. he may be technically incredible(which i don't really

believe either, its nothing THAT special really, 5-9 years ago sure),

but there's a point where some people edge a little

too close to this ethos of 'new' + 'crazy'=good music or something.

i just find his shit(from what i've heard, which is far from comprehensive)

to be incredibly subpar and unmusical. almost annoying. it's really tangible to me

that he's really really trying to be this crazy out there breakbeat/noise crazy guy.

some people try too hard and it comes off as really insincere and garbagey.

nymphomatriarch

 

all pieces were assembled in winnipeg, canada by aaron funk and rachael kozak. may 1st - may 13th 2002. every sound was synthesized from their privately recorded debaucharies committed while on tour in london [england], paris [france], basel [switzerland], antwerp [belgium] and winnipeg [canada]

 

hecate’s rachael kozak has a thing with collaborations. she paired up earlier this year with lustmord’s brian williams on law of the battle of conquest, a visceral, percussive revision of lustmord’s drone aesthetic. now she’s shacking up with venetian snares’ aaron funk. literally. nymphomatriarch, a joint project between venetian snares and hecate, is 100% composed of sounds the duo made having sex together.

 

but it’s not porno music. nymphomatriarch is cutting-edge drill beats and raucous noise that puts your ears in a vice. the tempestuous breaks venetian snares is known for spiral down to the very pits of hell and back thanks to hecate’s visceral atmospheric treatments, returning as mordant sound meant to corrode the soul.

 

nymphomatriarch bristles with the crisp signature of traditional breakcore dynamics, yet unlike many albums in the genre, nymphomatriarch retains a sense of complex ambient sound and depth throughout its six tracks - this isn’t just another manic break record composed entirely on a hard drive. in other words, it’s everything you’d expect from a collaboration between venetian snares and hecate. nymphomatriarch just happens to be made from sex sounds.

 

like matmos or ming + fs, nymphomatriarch manipulates conventional found sound into musical themes. but unlike matmos, who recorded plastic surgery sounds for their album a chance to cut is a chance to cure, or ming + fs sampling car doors, windshield wipers, and slamming trunks to produce music for a nissan commercial, nymphomatriarch employs the noise of anal and oral sex, straightforward copulation, “microphone insertion” and other privately recorded debaucheries committed while venetian snares and hecate were on tour together in europe and canada last year.

 

those snapping high-hats running throughout “blood on the rope?” ass slaps torqued and looped like madness. the whizzing black noise of “input” and “outlet?” zippers ripping open and clothes flying off. the fiendish cries and murky ambience overshadowing “amaurophilia” and “hymen tramp choir?” just think about it for a second…

 

or maybe not, suggests kozak when asked about the inevitable hype building up around nymphomatriarch.

 

“at this point i don't care how or what people think of the album, we made it for ourselves really, a kind of personal investigation,” she says. “obviously people get hung up on the idea of it, but i think when they actually listen to the record it will be another story.”
