last saturday record of tides aka sven piayda performed a secret audio only live set at electric café oberhausen.
next to record of tides artists like inter:pol, donk and others performed that night at october 6.
even when the gig event was public, no information was spread in advance.

the record of tides set was only about 24 minutes long featuring tracks like ‘the saints’, ‘care’ and ‘harvest’ from the current album ‘endurance’.
next to the known tracks the middle of the set was dominated by two or three quite abstract and new tracks.
fortunately the performance was recorded and is available for free as digital bootleg. it is published via archive.org and can be downloaded from here.

piayda has announced to return to electric café with public relations probably in 2019.
the very different gig at eurasia electronica this summer is also supposed to be released as digital bootleg in the future.

it is our massive pleasure to announce the release of 'endurance', the fourth full length album by record of tides.
the album is released once again by the hamburg based netlabel kreislauf.org and and is distributed by achive.org and sonicsquirrel.net.

‘endurance’ has been programmed, recorded and produced in summer 2017 when piayda returned home from hospital after having a surgery to fix
a pilon fracture (check the journal: 2017-10-03 the man who fell to earth (and broke a leg) | entry by sven) and using the time for a new album.
the album features 20 tracks and is mostly inspired by aphex twin, boards of canada (in the pre-warp era) and guitar work by queen and seefeel.
it is supposed to be the best work of record of tides so far, accorting to kreislauf.org label boss andreas buttweiler.

as ‘endurance’ features about 108 minutes of music it is difficult to put it on a physical release. zany music is recently
working on a cd version reducing the tracklist while adding an exclusive track to it. we will announce when the physical release will be available.

nevertheless, ‘endurance’ is now available via
and distributed via archive.org and sonicsquirrel.net.

here is another snippet of the record of tides performance at eurasia electronica:
‘untitled live track’ cannot be found on any release and is pretty wild. feel free to share and get ‘endurance’.

french musician and blogger thierry massard is pretty into the music of record of tides and finds some great words on the album.
(please note: the english version of the original french text is a machine translation, please apologise)

Un an ... Une année (moins un jour) après le très remarquable et remarqué "Solna" pour l'impérieux Kreislauf, Sven Piayda (aka ROT)
nous invite à maintenir temporellement notre avidité (peu raisonnable, admettons-le) pour le bel ouvrage. 20 pièces ciselées durant un exil convalescent,
durant lequel, Sven a mis en oeuvre cette magnifique faculté d'un regard distant (le recul), associée à la cruelle et objective réalité d'une proximité contrainte.
Le résultat ? Fort loin d'une hypothétique concentration d'atomes crochus agglomérés, monolithiques et prévisibles en pareille situation créative,
"Endurance" démontre la grande cohérence d'un esprit vagabond et prompt à ouvrir de nouvelles pistes.
Si d'aventure, l'endurance peut parfois conférer à une certaine résistance restrictive, ici il n'en est rien,
Record Of Tides nous régale de saveurs et de contrastes - Un exhausteur de goût!

One year... One year (less a day) after the very remarkable and noticed "Solna" for the imperious Kreislauf, Sven Piayda (aka ROT)
invites us to maintain temporarily our greed (not very reasonable, let us admit it) for the beautiful work. 20 pieces chiselled during a convalescent exile,
during which, Sven implemented this magnificent faculty of a distant glance (the retreat), associated with the cruel and objective reality of a constrained proximity.
The result? Far from a hypothetical concentration of agglomerated, monolithic and predictable chemistry in such a creative situation,
"Endurance" demonstrates the great coherence of a vagabond mind and quick to open new paths.
If adventure, endurance can sometimes confer a certain restrictive resistance, here it is nothing of the sort,
Record Of Tides regales us with flavours and contrasts - An enhancer of taste!

we are looking back on the first eurasia electronica festival taking place at eurasia and pilgrim art. the small experimental festival
was headlined by record of tides aka sven piayda and closed by a shorter live house set by lemon&pilgrim as well by
a dj set by dennis lemon and rees archibald turning eurasia art into a club. the night was opened by mjellmë aka swantje lichtenstein
with word based sound performance followed by very special guest rees archibald from australia
with a short drone performance. originally achim zepezauer confirmed to play live but could not show up because of schedule difficulties.

this was the first time of record of tides live since 2015, playing material from the upcoming album as well as tracks (or snippets) from older releases
and stuff released as AESTATE. as record of tides was the only act using visuals we have collected multiple photos
taken at that night which we will online within the next weeks.
we would like to thank maria zharkova, michaela best, grischo schlüsi and matthias danberg for delivering photo and video material.

the festival was developed and curated by roman pilgrim and sven piayda giving a forum to contemporary electronica
and are looking back on a night of great performances and a working concept.
further events may come. we like to thank swantje lichtenstein, rees archibald, dennis lemon and especially roman pilgrim for making this experiment happen.
