Wil Bolton / Maemi

Wil Bolton’s ‘Maemi’ takes its title from the Korean word for cicadas. Recorded live at Cafe OTO, London during the Home Normal label’s Homenormalism festival on 3 August 2013, Wil weaves effected guitar drones, synthesizer, music box, effects pedals and environmental sounds creating a slow moving dronescape. The environmental sounds – timber mill machinery, traffic, and the buzz of cicadas – were recorded in Incheon, South Korea in August 2012, during an artist residency at the Incheon Art Platform.
