Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2007-05-13 
Organic well crafted ambience and experimentalism. For fans of Stars of the Lid, Eno, Harold Budd, Kevin Shields, Richard Lainhardt, Daniel Menche, et. al. Drones, environmental sounds, backwards masking, slow long quiet fade-ins. Really fantastic stuff from a collaboration of an old-school Italian soundscape artist (Becuzzi) and a young “wunderkind from Naples.

CD1:
1) quiet intro, looping tones build into drones that ebb and flow, some are white noise washes
2) begins with sound of rain, then takes on a sci-fi echoey tone, spacey spooky
3) super quiet fade-in to sublime drone and overtones, gorgeous
4) build up of tones and echoes, ends with something akin to a babbling brook
5) another sublime slow fade-in, build up of drones, very hypnotic, illuminating, midway it shifts into an entirely different feel, high frequencies, a looped found sound musical sample

CD2:
1) lush tones with subliminal metallic scraping gives way to layers and layers, sounds that vaguely resemble birds in a forest, interesting mix of the organic ambient with industrial, it all falls apart and with about 6 minutes remaining very pretty ambient piano playing appears and loud guitar, this last 6 minutes is very musical very college radio near-dream pop, like a My Bloody Valentine song intro
2) low quiet drone fade-in, midway sounds like metal and glass falling in an enormous tunnel
3) another quiet fade-in, slow appearance of pretty tones, long quiet and very hypnotic, you could get a massage with this playing
