Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2008-10-21
Experiments in analog synth, very old school “electronic music”, sounds like Moog patching, voltage controlled oscillators, etc. Also incorporates looped and collaged samples. Mostly very serene and ambient, chill. Nothing really grating or difficult. Just stuff that’s reminiscent of a 70’s era University Music Dept’s “electronic music lab”. Think Cage, Reich, Budd, Eno.

1) soaring sine wave type pure drone
2) mashup of TV type samples
3) ambient type spacey tones
4) collage of distorto tone, very electronic, like a broken two way radio
5) very chill drones, ebb and flow, serene
6) chill also but waves of harsher tones
7) very chill drone, serene with little tones poking through here and there
8) a wash of interesting drone/frequencies, this would be a good soundbed or mixed in with other stuff
9) field recording (is this the airport terminal?) with sparse tones added, ambient and cool
10) bells repeating with subtle drones, quite lovely really
