"[...] And for an album that constantly displays and exploits the machinations used to create it, the tone of the pieces is incredibly human and fragile. Xu has created an album that is both inviting and unsettling. It’s a fun ride from beginning to end and one that reveals Fornasari as a unique voice in minimal-electronic music that’s coming into sharp focus."

Fluid Radio


"La mutevole fragilità e la fuggevolezza dell’ecosistema sonoro rimandano tanto a una tecnica impressionistica quanto all’equilibrio delle arti orientali..."

Music Won’t Save You


"Ogni frammento giunge nitido, libero di espandersi fino a trovare un punto di transizione che lo leghi al successivo determinando una sequenza armonica chiara e accogliente alla quale affidare con onirico languore la propria vena sensoriale."

So What


"[...] it is a wonderfully understated album full of slight, gossamer melodies that elide into one another and music box percussion that winds its own idiosyncratic rhythm through the composition. Another top-notch release for Eilean Rec."

Tome to the Weather Machine


"[...] Everything plays off a general childlike sense of wonder, allowing the songs to form organically. Nicely spacious, the whole of the tracks works together to create a unique sort of journey. [...] Xu’s “Whisper My World” truly has love for its surroundings."



"Xu’s release “Whisper My World” is at the more experimental range of releases on Eilean [...] He covers up and uncovers beauty, shifting at a glacial pace with an attention to revealing a clear sound design. [...] Fornasari is an artist to keep an eye and ear on if you haven’t in the past."
