Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2005-09-28
Bordering on Classical this project has a very composed, thought-out and mindful feel. Woodwinds and strings it often sounds like an orchestra. Experimental by any other name this doesn’t pass for your standard product of academia. Not noisy enough to qualify as “chamber noise” its certainly chamber-something.

1) drony strings, woodwinds, chill, slowly phrased operatic female vocals, quiet breakdown at end
2) totally chill and sparse winds, female operatic vocs again, lots of space between phrases
3) near random note music box avante feel with trumpet melodies, strong song-like feel despite irregular beat, breaks down with a sparse dissonance, very chill and minimal for last 2 minutes 4) lush beautiful drone and fem vocs appear midway
5) very regal oboe, classical, with operatic female vocs juxtaposed with a male spoken word about “life forms”, a mish mash of interesting statements
6) minimal quiet strings and a symphony of high pitched drones
8) pretty melodic chamber orchestral strings and woodwinds, very pleasant, very classical
