Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2007-09-03 
Very avante, near-classical experimentalism using chamber/symphonic instruments and some spoken word (in French). From Canadian academic school of new-music. Excellent stuff.

1) mostly very chill, environmental sounds
2) bowed cello/bass w/ water sounds, grows spastic
3) bowing, guitar, sparse oboe
4) abstract use of percussion, bowing, almost noisey
5) voice, spoken poetry in French except “Sunday driver” w/ soundbed of very challenging scronks and squeals, bowing
6) sparse woodwinds and strings, pensive, spastic
7) creepy bass bowing and percussion
8) brief, strings, perc
9) mostly sparse, creepy ambient
10) dissonant guitar, woodwinds, very brief interlude
11) abstract conglomeration of moods, sources, sounds
12) mechanical sounds
13) brief bass bowing + perc
14) abstract, sparse, percussion heavy w/ interesting bowing
15) spoken poetry in French w/ avante soundbed
16) quiet plucking and winds
17) sparse
18) scratch, percussive
19) brief, guitar, bowing, crazy feel
20) noisey percussive, pitz
