Released by Fluid Audio on CD, in an edition of 150.

"Inspired by the windswept Scottish highlands, ‘Marram' is three things:

Wil Bolton’s new album for Fluid Audio, a long grass that holds sand dunes together and a palindrome...

Born of loops taken from vintage classical records, with parts sourced from classical guitar, glockenspiel, chime bars and analogue monosynth, ‘Marram’ also features clarinet by Edward Farrow and violin by Christoph Berg.

These crackling drones and overlapping textures form both a development and departure for Bolton, with an uncharacteristic absence of field recordings. Instead, it sees a confident expansion into densely arranged modern classical/electro-acoustic elements.

Immersive, layered and moving, ‘Marram’ is a maudlin calm to an inner dialogue’s storm."
