Venetian Snares is the ([[IHaveManyNames main]]) pseudonym of Canadian {{electronic music}} producer Aaron Funk. He mostly does breakcore tracks and is [[TropeCodifier credited with making the genre what it is today]], but he also makes [[GenreRoulette glitchcore, IDM, noise, Dubstep and orchestral music]]. {{Classical music}} is also frequently sampled in his Breakcore work, along with various HipHop acapellas and {{Jazz}}.

* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Just watch [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uJMj8UF7yYo this interview]] and suddenly his music will make a lot of sense. The man claims himself to be a hillbilly, for crying out loud.

* EverythingIsAnInstrument[=/=]IntercourseWithYou: He and Hecate, an industrial/dark electronic artist, released an album called ''Nymphomatriarch.'' It was made solely out of recordings of them having sex between shows while on tour. It's one of the best-known works of either artist to date.
* ForeignLanguageTitle: ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rossz_Csillag_Alatt_Szuletett Rossz Csillag Alatt Született]]'', whose tracks (along with the album itself) are titled in Hungarian.

* IntentionallyAwkwardTitle: ''Winnipeg Is A Frozen Shithole,'' an awkward enough title in its own right, contains a song titled, ''Die Winnipeg Die Die Die Fuckers Die.'' In the years between ''Greg Hates Car Culture'' and ''Making Orange Things,'' he put out a 12" titled ''Shitfuckers!!!'' and a split with US musician Stunt Rock, titled ''Fuck Canada Fuck America.'' And of course the above mentioned ''Rossz Csillag Alatt Szuletett''. It's not awkward for Hungarian speakers, of course, but for everyone ''else''...
* KindHeartedCatLover: His album ''Songs About My Cats'' is about,well, his cats.

** Possibly overlaps with [[OneOfUs One Of Us]]: There were a few songs on ''Doll, Doll, Doll'' that sampled VideoGame/EarthBound and VideoGame/{{Fallout 2}}.
*** Some songs from ''Huge Chrome Cylinder Box Unfolding'' feature samples from ''SuperMarioBrothers.''
** And on ''Meathole,'' he sampled Music/{{Current 93}} and Music/NurseWithWound.
* ScaryMusicianHarmlessMusic: Venetian Snares normally makes music just as aggressive and unfriendly [[http://userserve-ak.last.fm/serve/_/20725631/Venetian+Snares+178939596_945b9bbae6.jpg as he looks]], but a few of his tracks (''I'm Sorry I Failed You'') are soft and melodic, often built out of orchestra samples.

* UncommonTime: Inverted--7/4 is his most common time signature, and he tends towards others as well, such as 11/4 or 10/4, but once in a blue moon, he'll play in 4/4.

** Perhaps a straighter example is Mercy Funk, from Find Candace, which quoting TheOtherWiki goes like this: [[note]] "Mercy Funk starts with 8 bars of 11/4 then switches to alternating bars of 5/4 and 13/8 (or 23/8 together) until 2'32". It then holds 5/4 until 3'50", where a single 7/4 bar is followed by 7 bars of the 23/8 plus one 19/8 bar. At 4'23" there follows a sequence of 16 bars of 13/8, 8 bars of 7/4, a cycle of 3 bars of 7/4 and a bar of 15/8 (or 57/8 together), repeated twice, then 7/4 until the end." MindScrew at its best.[[/note]]
* WordSaladTitle: There is no such thing as a "Cadmium Lung Jacket" or a "Huge Chrome Peach." And there certainly is no "Cavalcade of Glee And Dadaist Happy Hardcore Pom Poms."
* WouldHurtAChild: Wrote two albums on the subject.

* UncommonTime: He ''really'' likes the 7/8 time signature,though he'll tinker with others as well, and he has been known to merge into 4/4 every now and then.
