Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2014-09-15 
Freaky modern classical/new music meets noise and experimental: Keiji Haino contributes only voice (gutteral, shouting, scratching, screaming, piping, chattering...) to Zeitkratzer's direction of a modern classical ensemble bolstered with amplification, very little effects. Recorded live (no overdubs). Pretty advanced stuff. For fans of.....??

1) (6:11) creepy plodding halloween type music until you realize its modern classical with gutteral freaky vocalizations
2)* (6:12) pulsing, strange urgency, noisy, kinda skronky, heavy
3) (11:00) begins very quietly, evolves very minimally with high pitched vocalizations, disturbing strings, percussion, brass
4) (5:07) scratchy sounding, gutteral vocalizations, nervous
5)* (10:47) screetchy rhythmic violin eventually is joined by clunking sounds, vocalizations that are almost decipherable, them midway it takes on an almost mechanical quallity, which is cool considering this is all chamber type instrumentation, growing noisier and noisier
6) (3:38) big screetching at first, John Zorn'esque, brass, gutteral skronks, whoa!
