'Everything In Shadow' was originally released in 2008 on Experimedia featuring original artwork by Jeremy Bible. The album marked my final recordings as Koen Park; a project which grew out of frustrations at installation works and my audio studies at the time. I found myself recording hours and hours of material in my mum's garage which was filled with instruments and keyboards I would build or circuit bend.
The remixes for the album were originally meant as a follow-up on Experimedia but ended up appearing on the compilations 'Remixes, Reworkings And Reimaginings' on I, Absentee and 'Remixes, Reworkings And Reimaginings In A Quiet Form' on Smallfish Records, both in 2009, both of which will be re-issued on Folk Reels at some point as well.
Thanks so much to Jeremy, Sean, Mike, and all the artists for your work, love and support. Special thanks to Paul at Acroplane who was a massive supporter of all the Koen Park work.

Let's put it this way- this is simply one of our favourite works ever!...A collection of variations on a theme that drift by, perfuming the air, or that stop a moment to whisper you a story. Evocative in its sparse beauty, We are sure this will been the permanent playlist always, right alongside Arvo Part's "Alina" and offthesky's "Silent went the Sea" ....ss/tm/am editions vaché

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.
