Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2006-02-22
Australian artist who employs treated guitars and tape effects to create lush soundbeds of bell-like toned ambience on par with Eno’s Music For Airports and recent afile works by Koji Asano. Two very long tracks, slow to evolve, and two shorter ones. Long tracks are worth the wait as they lull and hypnotize. Shorter tracks do the same but in shorter shrift.

1) (18min) ultra quiet minimal start, almost inaudible, slow bell-like tones require about 10 minutes to build to a lush near melodic milieu
2) (19min) begins as a continuation of previous but quickly turns to sparse very low tones, then high contrasting high pitched electronic bursts and sounds appear, jarringly
3) (8min) pretty collage of tones, slight melody, relaxing and lush
4) (6min) nice mix of space ambient beauty with a disturbing subliminal tone throughout
