Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2007-09-03 
New music, avante experimental classical from Canada. Chamber instruments played very untraditionally. Bursts and blurts, seemingly random phrases. Sparse and quiet at times. Very academic.

1) very quiet start, builds up, layers of bass strings, fall away then re-appear, building
2) pitzicatto bas and blurps of other instruments
3) bowing, strings, very sparse/quiet toward end
4) percussive feel
5) mix of bass, percussion, sparse
6) lots of bass bowing, slow and sparse feel
7) very sparse, quiet
8) brief conga/perc
9) squealing strings
10) percussive bow sounds
11) brief
12) builds up slow into cinematic quality
13) sparse, randomness
14) squealing and faster phrasing
15) fast bss plucking
16) very sparse
17) fast bass playing w/ percussion
18) slow sparse bass
