'Suspended Crescendo' was created in 2011, in Tokyo, Japan, for a performance at the venue Soup, as part of the Tobira Records showcase. It is a simple tape loop played in one revolution, with sustain, reverse reverb, reverb, and a mixer with internal feedback, creating an endlessly sustained crescendo.
It was the third of three pieces. The first two were released on LP as 'Jima'.

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.

i am in the windless full-moon night, staring at the brittle ice twinkling in the light. it clings and silently chimes and drifts down like dust within the boughs of the birches. it sleeps in flashes and shines within the soft white blankets of the pine. i raise my breath and smother the moon with thick fog and walk back to the hiss of the fire Ews Nsj
