a thousand lines had been
etched upon our faces,'
Hiraeth is a Welsh word meaning “a homesickness for a place you cannot return to, or that never was”; emotional residue tied to place, how memory ties to that landscape of first impression.

In Bokeh, Wil Bolton patiently crafted six tracks, where processed field recordings and reverberated synthesizers melodies are carefully balanced.
Chimes, bar-like talks, distant traffic or whispers from the wind frame the story of this release in a very small location. We are only one step away from saying that the artist takes us in his privacy with Bokeh ; and I'll go for it.
Very personal and sensitive, this album takes place behind the closed doors of Bolton's near environment.
