5.0 out of 5 stars classical music for the 21st century?, 9 Oct 2007
This review is from: My Downfall (Audio CD)
few people have the ambition, the talent and ability to challenge their listeners as much as aaron funk, also known as venetian snares. from the early gabba rave on albums such as songs about my cat, to the dense rhythmic and melodic structures of huge chrome cylinder, without forgetting the beauties of the intricately arranged classic strings/breaks of "rossz....".

for followers of the music of venetian snares, aaron funk likes to continue themes explored in his earlier albums. in hospitality, the progression of drum programming first explored in huge chrome was further examined. in my downfall, venetian snares has continued the path first defined in "rossz...." of arranging beautiful classical scores often alongside his characteristic discordant breakbeat programming.

this review is being written a few days after it's release date, and like most of funk's work, time is needed to fully appreciate music so intricate. on early listenings the genius and the breathtaking vision of the album cannot be denied, like his earlier work, i greatly look forward to spending many hours getting familiar with this album.

if you have even had a brief liking for any of funk's work, then this album is a must purchase. even if you have not heard any venetian snares, but have interests in the broadly catergorised genre of "electronic" music, then this album could provide you with great enjoyment.
