VENETIAN SNARES X DANIEL LANOIS - VENETIAN SNARES X DANIEL LANOIS (LP)


"First collaborative journey of Canadian musicians Venetian Snares and Daniel Lanois. What started as mutual respect for one another's work, led to several years of a creative germination resulting in this eight-track full-length exploration. 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 2016 when Funk took his gear to Lanois' studio and the two began to play for the first time together. "I love making music with Dan, he has a real understanding of how to create a world and build what may exist within that world. Bassdrums are trombones and they are a colossal whale which floats on clouds of leaves speaking to the blast furnace feeding the mammoth. A small painting of forest horses hangs in the cranium of the sea horse." - Aaron Funk. Recorded live in a former Buddhist temple-turned-studio in Toronto, 'Venetian Snares x Daniel Lanois' travels to new zones in what Lanois describes as "a body of work driven by exploration". Like all the best collaborations, it's brought something new out of both musicians. Funk laid the groundwork with drums while Lanois rode the pedal steel, weaving their sounds together in a new sonic tapestry." (label info) also available on CD
