Death To QR Codes

We are not robots.

This unusual square box with black dots started to appear all over the city. It was an advertisers way of saying “We want to tell you more but, you have to scan this code first”. It destroyed a layout graphic designers put their passion into. And it confused the people who didn’t know what it was. It wasn’t sexy nor interesting to look at.

The advertisers are slowly realizing the “Let’s just put a QR code on this” boat is sinking and we no longer see those mysterious cubes anymore. However, despite the dying trend, there are plenty of companies who still use it for their marketing campaigns. We decided to let the public and the companies know that the war is over.

QR Code Hunters.

KILN :: meadow:watt

KILNmeadow:watt” (GI-192) // Ghostly International // Release 12 November 2013.

KILN expands upon its aural concepts of fluid, neverwhere textures with meadow:watt, its third full-length with Ghostly International. Building upon the sound they developed over 10 years ago with Sunbox, then expounded upon in 2007 with Dusker, the evocative spaces of meadow:watt bring the sonic art of Kevin Hayes, Kirk Marrison and Clark Rehberg III into even sharper focus. The nine tracks of meadow:watt continuously construct and deconstruct themselves, gliding through movements of disrupted organic & electrified elements. In many ways, meadow:watt is KILN‘s most melodic record yet with tracks like “Acre” and “Moth and Moon,” which offer dreamy guitar notes bending like the sun’s curves on a watery horizon. “Pinemarten” is driven by its percussion, strolling in a steady line where there is no path, and “Jux” offers a cascade of oxidized symphonics, tumbling through dubbed out atmospheres of liquid zipper treatments.

A Tangled Tale

A lone fish, hooked by an angler’s line, encounters another in the same dire situation. As the two fish struggle against their fate, they develop an inevitable, entangling attraction. Is it love or merely a will to survive? This vibrant, watery underwater world showcases my revolutionary approach to sand animation, a seamless blend of traditionally handcrafted imagery and technological innovation.

Story & animation: Corrie Francis Parks • Music by Mark Orton • Sound by Cole Pierce.
