about

Released on Cathedral Transmissions (CT39).

“My first vision of earth was water veiled. I am of the race of men and women who see all things through this curtain of sea, and my eyes are the color of water.”

Anaïs Nin, “House of Incest”

------------------------------------------------------------------

"[...] La sapiente ed equilibrata miscela di suoni provenienti da fonti eterogenee consente ancora una volta a Fornasari di costruire un viaggio coinvolgente dai forti connotati visivi. Non resta che abbandonarsi a questa epifania di una possibile rinascita, un lento perdersi, per potersi ritrovare ad osservare la realtà da un punto di vista differente."

Peppe Trotta on So What
sowhatmusica.wordpress.com/2015/11/24/xu-floater/

------------------------------------------------------------------

"Fornasari gets back to us with a new corpus of exceptionally moving and obscure sound collages and immersive drone tapestries. [...] Sound metaphors and projections of memory, nostalgia and reflective ego trip. An interesting work and another fine example of isolationist and grainy dronescaping experience."

Philippe Blache on Igloomag

------------------------------------------------------------------

"Floater is distinctive and imaginative at the same time. [...] The tone of sine waves and reversed guitar create a nice background for percussive sounds from piezo and processed music boxes. [...] It provides calm yet mysterious atmospheres with a touch of experimental music and free improvisation."

Nhung Nguyen on Cánh đồng âm nhạc

------------------------------------------------------------------

“Floater si atteggia a rappresentare al meglio il lato più istintivo e minimale dell’artista, espresso nella dimensione di un’improvvisazione elettro-acustica curatissima nei dettagli di ambientazioni sospese e fortemente evocative."
