Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2006-07-31 
Iranian experimentalist, sound artist, by way of San Francisco. Sample and electronic treatments. Nothing droney, but avoids being “academic”. Cool brain candy, better than your average Matmos, that’s for sure. Treatment of traditional Middle Eastern instruments is great. Good stuff.

1) chill, pretty treated folk instrument, chiming, harpsichordish, mystical
2) spookier sci fi feel, minor toned electronic, Wendy Carlos in a space/time continuem
3) chill, echoey, trippy
4) brief, weird treatments, high pitched, can be used as an interlude
5) chill but evolves into some interesting creepiness, vocalizations
6) brief, obtuse, sparse
7) extension of previous, brief
8) looping, repeating semi percussion, subliminal voices, trippy
9) quite beautiful drony, with ethereal tinkling type treatments, major glitchy shift about 1:30 left, cool
10) loopy electro madness
11) piano, almost and organic feel about this, neurotic
