Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2010-12-17 
Experimental strings, lots of bow exchanges that get squeaky and rough, layers, loops, hypnotic, lovely, psychotic. From myspace: “Almost everyone knows about the infamous 18th century luthier, Quintana Jacobsma, who unwittingly aided a species of intelligent, giant butterflies to lay waste to the small village of Willabea. But almost no one has heard his last musical manuscripts, discovered recently at an estate sale by an estranged botanist and lovingly brought to life in musical form in these recordings on cello, double bass, violin, sitar, bowed guzheng.”


1) somewhat creepy sound collage with squealing strings, layers of dissonance
2) pretty squealing bow exchanges and droning strings, like a tamboura sorta, eastern flavor for sure, string washes of hypnodrone
3) slow drone of bowed strings, looped, pretty and organic and serene
4) another blessed out wash of strings and feedybacky stuff
5) and yet more, lovely stuff
6) tense layers of strings, pensive
7) more playful string sounds, noises to start, then they start to loop and build, layer upon themselves into a cacophony, cool!
8) looping, more of a harsher noisier noise feel
9) hollow and distant, but hauntingly lovely
