Quodega – Only Forward
Vinyl packaging design Quodega’s second album ‘Only Forward’.
Following on from their 2017 ‘Welsh Music Prize’ nominated debut ‘Life in Analogue’, ‘Ofni’ is Cotton Wolf sophomore album. Set against a thematic backdrop of social uncertainty, the album’s darker material is simultaneously imbued with anxious paranoia and hopeful positivity. The new tracks from the Cardiff duo showcase a bolder production with faster tempos and purer electronic sounds, alongside hypnotic, abstract and melodic ideas inherent to their previous release. Whilst the bulk of the album is instrumental, the title track features an ethereal vocal contribution by Adwaith’s Hollie Singer.
The cover artwork is by Louise Mason. Layout and Typography is by Ctrl Alt Design. The cover is printed with a magenta foil and the vinyl is pressed on red vinyl.
Sound+Vision‘s event featured seven musicians alongside one filmmaker. 8 reels of super 8 were filmed throughout Wales, capturing the juxtaposition between the natural and the industrial. The soundtrack was played improvised and played live at the Reardon Smith Lecture Theatre, National Museum Cardiff.
The artists involved were… Cian Ciarán, Esther, The Gentle Good, Teddy Hunter, Kris Jenkins, Secondson, Meilyr Tomos & Toby Cameron.
Ctrl Alt Design created the posters and social media graphics for the project.
Leading on from their award-winning fulldome film, Liminality, Cardiff based creative collaborators Matt Wright and Janire Najera immerse audiences in the music of Slowly Rolling Camera. Commissioned by Ffotogallery to premiere at Diffusion 2019, Juniper explores how sound and moving image merge within live performance. The unique show saw Slowly Rolling Camera performing their critically acclaimed third album Juniper in its entirety, accompanied by a visual score created by 4pi Productions.
Ctrl Alt Design created the posters and marketing materials for the live show at the Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff.
Pipe Down, aims to be an insight into the “stigmatised subject of addiction” while “bringing recovery into the world, and the world into recovery”.
Editor Araminta Jonsson said the magazine aims not only to target people who are in recovery, but also families of those in recovery or people who work in the sector, for example. The aim is to hook the readers with humour and then touch on something that can help with recovery.
