‘Poemss’ is a musical project from Toronto-based producer and music artist Joanne Pollock and Aaron Funk, who’s recorded music as Venetian Snares. They met in Europe but when Joanne played Aaron her music and visited him at his studio, collaboration started to happen soon after. Poemss will surprise anyone who equates all Aaron’s music solely with his solo hard-edged, drum-driven output. This project is the result of a true partnership, with both artists contributing to the writing and performance of the music, the technical aspects of production and to the performance and treatment of the vocals. Their debut is a collection of soft and dreamlike ballads; Aaron and Joanne’s singing adding both texture and poetry to the album.
