With a very singular style, that easily understands the poetic scope of its fantastically dense level of artistry, Wu Wei’s music conforms to a world where logic is another basic sense of the human spirit. Diffusing melodies that understand the intimacy of perfectly correlated rhythms, the work done for the sake of a complete expansion of dreams is not just marvelous, but inexperienced. With an elusive degree of originality, Wu Wei has created, on Automated Shadows, a subtle sonorous surface, that gracefully transforms itself into a reinstated planetary system of peaceful synesthesia, where all your senses are amplified into a more delightful expansion of conscious sensibilities.
Automated Shadows is a dense and formidable work, that can be considered complete in its own right. With a continual layer of circular harmonies that complete its own sphere of graceful possibilities, the record transmits a genuine horizon of vicissitudes, upon which all harmonious rhetoric becomes a method for the sensorial musical perception.
Don’t get me wrong. In any way – despite its resourceful and abundant qualities – I can point it out this album as a masterpiece. Sometimes, you feel the absence of a more solid and agitated, corporeal body of rhythms. Nonetheless, it is never tedious or monotonous either. In the end, Automated Shadows is a very good, reenergizing electronic musical work, with a very personal sonorous layer of its own. With calm and transcendental style, this record certainly represents an interesting vibration, with a very peculiar atmosphere of wonderful beauty.
