record of tides retuns to perform live at consol, gelsenkirchen.
after the postponement of the 2021 szeniale festival caused by the on-going covid pandemic we did not expect to announce live dates for this summer.
on august 12 record of tides will perform an live set at consol in gelsenkirchen supported by lemon & pilgrim.
(even if both sets have been announced as live sets it is not sure if a projection is technically possible at this venue.)
the night is curated by artist roman pilgrim and is part of the summer stage festival.

update 2021-08-10: as the stage and light situation is not suitable for video projection we expect a visual projection via screen.
sven piayda and the studio have been working very hard on this solution, we hope you enjoy!

after massive problems within the last months concerning cancelled releases and shows
we are happy to announce new extensive material by record of tides on zany music to be available on different media.
the ‘purchases’ releases bundle features all new tracks on vinyl, compact disc and download
mostly based upon samples expanding record of tides´ musical style towards post hip hop while still being recognizable for his unique style.
sven piayda started to work on the new pieces back in december 2020 and finished the bundle in spring 2021.
all tracks have been mastered by michael schreiber to grand a transparent and punchy sound for all tracks of the ‘purchases’ series.





the upcoming series of releases starts with the ‘purchases ep’ available on limited edition 12” black vinyl only.
it features six tracks which also appear on the album which is supposed to be released as final item.
the vinyl is available june 4 via bandcamp and exclusively from certain local record stores which will be announced here.
(the ep might be sold out quickly, you might contact us for new items to arrive.)

recordoftides.bandcamp.com/album/purchases-ep





the vinyl release is followed by a digital only and free ‘gimmicks ep’
which contains 10 tracks which have been outtakes of the forthcoming album or additions after the album was already finished.
the ‘gimmicks ep’ features mabel e. hicast and primal scapes (a.k.a. michael schreiber) on single tracks.

recordoftides.bandcamp.com/album/gimmicks-ep






the series finishes with the ‘purchases’ album available as download and compact disc distributed via bandcamp only.
the album contains 16 tracks available in different digital formats.

the album is out june 18.

recordoftides.bandcamp.com/album/purchases


the covers, sleeve designs and music videos are inspired by artworks or pictures
which appear on walls in animated shows like ‘family guy’ or ‘the simpsons’.
sven piayda started a series of works aiming to create pictures looking like they could appear as artworks in theses animated shows.
the videos escorting the album also feature the flat cartoon look in combination with
the computer animated movements which also refers to contemporary animated tv shows.

update 2021-06-28: our dear friend thierry massard has delivered a review on ‘purchases’ via nocoVision calling it a masterpiece:

… the less "wise" musicologists, and producers of sounds with a wavering memory, nourished by the spoils of their elders,
must now worry about their durability - melodic lines supported or skilfully crushed, rhythmics in precarious balance,
‘purchases’ has the advantage of not immediately revealing all its luxuriant richness.
[…] satisfying themselves with delight, with the happiness of a story once again in progress - masterpiece!


a big thank you to thierry, once again!
have a look on the full review over at nocovision.blogspot.com




check out the video for 'brazil pot one' as directed by sven piayda.





update 2021-07-02: the ‘purchases’ album was supposed to be the final release of the ‘purchases’ series, now zany music adds another ep to the series:
‘the biggest trick ep’ features the track with the same name in an edited version which was originally produced
for the vinyl ep next to the edit version of ‘slides’ which was originally released on the ‘purchases’ vinyl ep.
the new release also features tracks which have been produced in spring and already during the release period of the series.
once again michael schreiber has mastered all tracks of the ep which has not been scheduled for release originally and is now added to the bundle.

zany music has released a new video for ‘horns of paradise’ by record of tides which is once again directed by matthias danberg.
the track appears on record of tides´ recent solo work ‘black album’ from 2020.
the new video is believed to be the last video for the album, which is available from bandcamp and archive.org.

more or less exactly ten years after the release of AESTATE´s last album ‘carbonized’ and about 14 years after the debut album
zany music releases digital reissues of the three iconic albums. each bundle contains the original album tracks in maximum sound quality
completed by bonus material expanding the running time of each album to about 90 minutes.
additionally the reissues feature processed or reworked cover artworks reflecting the history of the releases.

zany music originally released all albums primarily on compact disc while putting the maximum quantity on the disc.
the albums were therefore limited and optimized for their medium.
the label also put out the albums as digital download but delivering only medium quality mp3s because of web space issues.
now the albums are available via bandcamp, added to the record of tides discography and no longer limited in length.

let´s have a closer look to the digital reissues:

AESTATE (debut album, 2007)
contains the original album plus bonus track ‘plad 4040’. the cover features a darker colour at the lower edge of the font.

recordoftides.bandcamp.com/album/aestate

SUPERFLAT (2008)
contains the original album plus an approximately 22 minute excerpt of AESTATE´s live set as performed at
ruhr in love open air techno festival in oberhausen in 2008 as line out recording as bonus track.
the album originally featured two cover versions for the compact disc version, the digital version also contained an alternate cover.
the reissue cover merges these three versions creating a more colourful appearance.

recordoftides.bandcamp.com/album/superflat

CARBONIZED (2011)
contains the original album plus bonus tracks ‘tync shaft’ (originally released on the 5th anniversary label sampler by digital kunstrasen in 2010) and
‘renites’ (originally released on the 10th anniversary audio visual label sampler by crazy language in 2016).
the original cover featured sven piayda´s ‘herbarium show’ tableau (2010) but as the group has never been happy with this choice,
the reissue cover shows renderings done during the same production period using the same input material
delivering different abstract structures while keeping the original colours now.

recordoftides.bandcamp.com/album/carbonized

all covers are supposed to be optimized for downscaled presentation as well for print.
you may like to read the press release and collected reviews:

AESTATE digital reissue albums press release

collected reviews on the 2011 album CARBONIZED by AESTATE
collected reviews on the 2008 album SUPERFLAT by AESTATE
collected reviews on the 2007 debut by AESTATE

the first announcement of digital reissues has been posted on april 1st on AESTATE´s mostly inactive facebook site.
as you see, this has not been april fool´s…
however, chris huff and sven piayda are not working on new AESTATE material,
‘renites’ may remain the group´s final track.




updade 2021-04-18: following a statement by the szeniale team we do not expect the festival to take place as scheduled.
record of tides is not going to play on june 19, 2021.
alternate dates or concepts have not been communicated so we do not expect sven piayda to play live in 2021.
record of tides was supposed to be supported by contemporary dancer josie kalies as well as singer 1satzleiter.

after a remix ep and collaborative releases with primal scapes, all notes off and 1satzleiter,
’black album‘ is still the current and last solo album by record of tides.
as piayda announced skipping a new release we are happy to finally present a new video directed by matthias danberg
for the track ‘vogh beats2’ from the 2020 album. danberg and piayda have finally brought results to their long term announced collaboration,
the new video is based upon danberg´s ‘bee’ movies which had been in recent exhibitions is only slightly edited to fit the music.
as the credit still above indicates, there might be more than one video done from merging the black album with bee movies.

instead of promoting new music, the video focuses on the recent solo work released about one year ago.
recently there is no info on plans for releasing new music.

because of unexpected technical difficulties the video will be available by march 28, 2021.

after two remarkable releases with primal scapes and lockdown based studio projects we like to announce discontinuation of certain projects.
as it has been mentioned in the journal and facebook, piayda finished a new record of tides album
which was supposed to be released as ‘post internet’ in spring.
the album was believed to be released on the hamburg based netlabel kreislauf.organisation.
even if label and artist have anticipated the release, negotiations on how to do it have come to nothing back in january.

now piayda has decided to skip the release even if putting it out on zany music would have been an option.
just like ‘yellowcake’ the new piece ‘post internet’ will remain finished but remain in the archive.
tracks of both albums have been features in live sets but are not available apart from bootlegs.
the reduction of releases is supposed to help focussing on a future release featuring different formats and even videos.
‘yellowcake’ and ‘post internet’ will remain unavailable until further notice.

primal scapes x record of tides release the appendix ep ‘sweven euclids’ using similar production methods

‘revenant euclids’ is still available and highly recommended. the album features ten tracks mostly based upon randomized euclidian pattern.

today primal scapes releases the new ‘white twin’ ep
featuring mostly alternative versions of songs from the album ‘entertain’ next to two new tracks.
the familiar tracks are once again featuring sven piayda on guitar and chris huff on bass.
even if michael schreiber has created new mixes with new drums and vocals the songs feature bass and guitar tracks
recorded during sessions in summer and autumn 2020, which have been slightly rearranged only.
so this ep is an appendix to the album expanding the range of styles.

michael schreiber states on his intention:
‘the principle of keep it simple in matters of music means to cut an idea down to the vital core.
as a positive side effect of condensation new space appears to rethink and recreate a track.
this is where the idea for these six previously released tracks came from.’




'white twin' is available digitally only via primal-scapes.de and zany music.
you can still get your physical copy of ‘entertain’ on compact disc, please write to studio[at]svenpiayda.com

this year we are celebrating 15 years of live electronica. after playing live with bands like apologies and dissident(en) club,
sven piayda debuted with live performed electronica at halle luja in tönisvorst back in 2005.
escorted by heiner neumann for live visuals the digital artists took the stage while being announced as Sellafield.
the group split up shortly after because of schedule difficulties while piayda focussed on productions to be released as AESTATE.
now, in weird 2020, we are looking back on one and a half decade of (audio-visual) live electronica (sometimes even with guitar), dj and hdj sets.
it feels like time for a little celebration.

sven piayda has already stated that record of tides´ performance at marienkirche in herne might have been his best gig
since playing szeniale festival in gelsenkirchen back in summer 2019. we are happy to finally present video footage documenting the show.
also zany music has announced to release a live bootleg of the performance merged from microphone and line recordings.
the bootleg is supposed to be available soon, definitely still in 2020.

performing a fast live version of ‘granada interface’ (as found on the ‘aural park ep’)
and a new track featuring computer voiced vocals believed to be titled as ‘becausetheinternet’.
based upon footage taken during october 30 a second video snipped is supposed to be around and may came up.
record of tides performed a compact audio only live set at marienkirche in herne for the ‘feuer und flamme’ festival.
the performance was placed under an impressive light installation by katerina kuznetcowa and alexander edisherovas.

new album 'entertain' by primal scapes out october 30, 2020.
written, performed and produced by michael schreiber
featuring record of tides´ sven piayda and AESTATE´s chris huff.
watch and/or listen to 'humming project'.

more info: www.primal-scapes.de/news.php?news=8
www.primal-scapes.de


michael schreiber states: from the first ideas in april the project has developed in the following months of song writing and recording.
it didn't become a typical electronic album but rather a mix of electronic and organic elements.
besides some personal leaning how nice this mixture can grow together, it has also provided further learning effects:
if you put two things that are good on their own in one pot and just stir, it doesn't always taste good - but only if you simplify the original recipe.
through the collaboration with sven piayda, chris huff and jan van aachen it has become a typical and equally untypical album for me - with an exciting colour.
I am more than satisfied and excited with the result that it is finally finished.
as always, you can't count the hours that go into such a project, some tracks now carry the internal revision number 15,
because they have struggled with their hands and feet to fit into the overall picture. also in this project I have learned a lot,
especially the combination of electronic music with hand-played real instruments offers interesting ways to make the clear to cool electronic structures more organic.

see www.primal-scapes.com




update 2020_10_12: we are happy to announce that the physical copies have arrived and will be definitely available by october 30.
place your orders now via www.primal-scapes.de. signed copies are also believed to be around, don´t forget to ask for it! more soon!

this year´s KURZstummfilmfestival will deal with number ‘5’ in all its contributions. the festival will also premieres sven piayda´s ‘aftermath’,
a video project started back 2019 directly after announcing the new topic but without deciding if the piece will be published or not.

‘aftermath’ is drafted as a horror movie for elementary school students using post internet art aesthetics once again with music by record of tides.
the heavy weight of bad grades (‘5’ is the second worst grade to get in germany)
seems to reach into the peace of the summer break symbolizing the students resort.
within the aftermaths the echo of not being good enough remains omnipresent.
the short film is only five minutes long and features material taken back in 2004 as well as digital animation done in 2019.

the KURZstummfilmfestival will take place on september 26, 3pm at zeche carl in essen.
caused by the corona crisis you have to register for participation as the maximum number of visitors is limited to 50 people.
(please register here) additionally the festival will screen the contributions on youtube,
starting with uploads in september 22 and having all videos available by september 25.

piayda is attending to the festival for the third time as chosen by the jury having shown ‘granada interface (the lost tapes)’
in 2019 and ‘die entdeckung europas’ in 2018.

the lockdown/quarantine situation made live events impossible for the last months.
record of tides did the last av live performance on february 8,2020 at medienbunker duisburg.
in the journal piayda announced being pretty unhappy with the performance and announced to figure out
‘which context could be suitable and how I can turn it into what I want it to be’
(2020-01-30 beyond the visible: genius in context | entry by sven, update 2020-03-07).
there haven´t been live activities since, but a live bootleg of the reconstructed performance was discussed.
now there are rumours of an upcoming performance even in 2020. we hope to deliver more info soon.

one of the record of tides albums I have been working on is ‘gift remixes’ or ‘remixes for trash’.
back in the days of dissident(en) club I was doing remixes to fill the b-sides and special editions and to keep my electronica work going.
now, while recording with michael schreiber I am thrilled again by just recording guitar tracks in a digital studio without caring for anything else.
as I like the sound of guitars in combination with programmed beats I was checking similar stuff of my discography
and ended up with the flamma piayda complex, record of tides´ ‘edurance’ (if you want to put it into this line)
and dissident(en) club, of course. I still believe we did great stuff back in the days of our short existence but only released two album on compact disc.
I came up twice with the idea to re-release it as free digital version (there is no money in it anyway)
but all my request have not been taken up and I am pretty bored of trying to bring something back that was not my opus maximus
(even if I still believe it is worth listening to it today).
however, there are a bunch of remixes and have surprisingly found even more remixes of the ‘science fiction’ era which I had forgotten.
so what I’ll do is skip my attempts to bring back the original albums and keep seeking for unreleased snippets and remixes
so I have material which is under my domain so I can put it out whenever I want.
this may be in near or far future but we should bring some stuff in shape here.


update 2020_08_10 via svenpiayda.com/news:

the record of tides track ‘exxa’ is featured on episode 534 of the weekly sundae podcast as hosted by stefan schulz.

update 2020_08_13 via svenpiayda.com/blog:
back on march 22 right at the beginning of the lockdown/quarantine situation
the british post rock band gallops offered stems of their track ‘darkjewel’ via instagram to be remixed and released for charity. [...]

without saying to much I can state that I was a gallops fan, their album ‘yours sincerely, dr. hardcore’ is still one of my favourites,
I discovered it back in 2013 and still have it in my car, guess.
a little later the band surprisingly split up but reunited a few years later and delivered a new album featuring ‘darkjewel’.
I knew and have the track even if I did not have the album. when the call for remixes came in was really thrilled to work with them.
I did the production within one day and it had to end as the machine was pushed to the limit and refused to handle more tracks.
of course, I wanted to be one of the chosen ones to be on the release for charity, even if I could not figure out what kind of context this was supposed to be.
I contacted them via instagram to ask for a deadline (there was none) and took two attempts to deliver the wav-file.
before the conversation fell apart completely (no-one was answering or even reading my messages via insta or fb anymore)
I often felt like texting with a stoned teenager. the guy on the other end never put his name under the two-liners.
however they have kicked the project into the long grass.
I have requested a few times if there will be a release or if I can release it myself but stayed without answer.
the band´s website vanished so I guess they must have split up again.
that´s bad for them but what really grinds me is to make people work for nothing which is a lack of valuation and professionalism.
being musicians themselves, they should know better. plus, the ‘charity’ idea is also scraped.

I have been a fan but now there is a bad aftertaste.
however, I have decided to put it out myself, probably via /CAMP and I trust your ability to find yourself a charity project you want to donate for.

as you might know, michael schreiber and sven piayda have been collaborating for the well appreciated album ‘altered stems’ and
have been discussing further collaborations since. next to music production it is remarkable that schreiber is also a trained code programmer
who has already created code for well-known artists and is now collaborating with the studio for generative image production.
they have already finished a mini series wich remains unreleased but have also created series of posters escorting the 'aural park' project.

also they are recently working in studio together for new music. piayda has already announced to not put out any more music in 2020,
so it is believed that they are working on material for schreiber´s project ‘all notes off’. more soon!

michael wrote in advance of the recording:
I am very excited to try new things and work on new material together with sven.
think I have to check if there is a red carpet anywhere so I can roll it out in front of the studio.

a little later this ‘preview’ was found online, once again with a comment from michael:
a track preview on the upcoming album ‘entertain’ - in case in plan will be released in 2020.
the track was done in a single recording session in another collaboration with record of tides
and as always has been a pleased in co-working with high output. background of the track:
one of my customers is running a real ‘heavy metal’ business and the machine park and industrial space is really impressive.


the common recording sessions appear to be a lot more ambitioned than expected.
up to now it is believed that the material will be released in autumn with a yet unknown project name.
also there are rumours that AESTATE´s chris huff has shown up in studio to contribute bass guitar parts for certain songs.
something is coming up. please be patient and stay excited!





caused by the constantly changing weather situation and strict restrictions in public parks the ‘aural park’ project ends without any public listening event.
there have been test events by the team in spring, but it was not possible to schedule an event within the announced timespan.
we hope to bring back the event next summer, the studio is considering changes like an open call to feature further artists working with sound.
the ‘aural park’ vinyl edition has sold out quickly. as zany music considers to put out more music on vinyl there might be a second run of the ‘aural park’ vinyl next year.
if you are interested, please contact studio[at]svenpiayda.com, so we can put your name on the list (and will not give your data to anyone else.)
the ep is also available via /CAMP. by purchasing the vinyl, poster or any other product you will get full access to music, videos and texts featured in the /CAMP.

which we do not want to hold back:
you guys are really killing me too, yo. you're the guys who mess up the amateur competition,
because they've outgrown it by miles, but (thank god) steadfastly refuse to leave for the anonymous,
friends-of-the-old-days-you-don't-know-anymore-professionals-camp. I say this without envy, but with a certain sigh.

The story behind the creation of "altered stems" is extraordinary - so I want to tell about it.

Sven (Record Of Tides) and me met at the "Electric Café Ruhr" events and both played live at the same gig "Beats im Bunker" early 2020 in Duisburg.
End of March 2020 in the "stay at home" days while finishing the last steps top my debut album doing mastering/mixing steps I needed to reset my ears and mind frequently.
One evening I have been listening to some great tracks from Record Of Tides.
A thing about music is when you listen to something that triggers you it digs into the back of your mind.

Some days later with a good glas of wine I remembered "Mountains" from the album "Collected Riffing Works" and had a spontaneous idea.
Without any hesitation I neither asked him or informed him and just recorded some vocals above the track.
The result was nice but it felt strange sending him the track late night with some explaining words
- what would his reaction be like?
On the very next morning I checked the messages and was pleased and relieved at the same moment
about his positive and kind reaction and he agreed we could release the track.

Sven wrote that he might be thinking of a remix album and I replied that I could do a second one if he likes to
- he said: "Go ahead". That was the moment things really got rolling and within a few days the second rework was done.
He tried something with one of my tracks and I was flashed and knew what he was talking about previously.
The moment when you listen to a rework of one of your own tracks that kicks you - is beautiful and like a gift when you get a different point of view to your own work.
The idea of getting a complete album together got clearer as speed of things increased
so the complete creation process of writing and recording happened in around ten days.

These days were an astonishing and pleasant experience - mixing our musical influences led to surprising results for both of us.

Hope you enjoy!

the escorting text states:
if you take a look at his website, which is well worth seeing and extensively documented,
you can quickly see in how many disciplines the mülheim-based artist sven piayda has competed.
photography, conceptual installation art, music, video are just a few of them. we talk about the urge behind the creative process,
the truthfulness of photos, the role of the self-image in social media and the mildness of old age that extends the taste for music.




the podcast is available on common platforms and can be found directly over at skeleton-crew.de/na017.
you will find all episodes of ‘natürliche ausrede’ over at skeleton-crew.de/na and anchor.fm/natuerlicheausrede.

it is our massive pleasure to announce the release of 'black album', the sixth full length album by record of tides.
the album is out once again on the hamburg based netlabel kreislauf.org and is available digitally and free.
kreislauf.org has already released the reissue of record of tides´ debut 'timber' from 2004 in 2014,
the follow up 'vessel' in 2016, the 2017 album ‘solna’ and the 2018 album ‘endurance’.

‘black album’ has been programmed, recorded and produced between autumn 2016 and spring 2019.
the album features 10 tracks and is mostly inspired by aphex twin and boards of canada (also some autechre for deconstructed parts) again,
there are no guitars or any acoustic instruments on the album.
the album is prominent for bocesque sounds and melodies while contrasting complex beat programming.

some new tracks have already appeared in record of tides live sets of the last three years, sometimes in alternative versions.
you may like to check the bootlegs and snippets floating in the net for new sounds.

kreislauf.org label boss andreas buttweiler and sven piayda have been discussing the holding of the release date
(which had been around behind closed doors before) in times of the on-going crises.
both agreed that releasing the album digitally only does not need any close distance personal contact.
also enjoying new music is primarily something personal you probably do for yourself,
in your living room, your car, via headphones in the garden or doing sports. this release does not conflict with current social distancing rules.
even feedback, discussions and reviews usually appear in digital media. feedback is well appreciated.

‘black album’ is available now and is released via
kreislauf.org and is distribued via archive.org.




zany music has finally released a new video for the record of tides track 'snow_1-7_140'
in advance of the upcoming release of the `black album’ on kreislauf.org. the video portrays a balloon hovering around in a basement room.
the balloon, by the way, had been a funny gift by dj kent granyon for sven piayda´s 40th birthday.
the footage therefore is believed to be taken in 2017 during the production of a video installation piece,
which has not been shown yet. the video is once again directed by sven piayda.
'snow_1-7_140' has already been released back in spring 2018 as part of the vinyl only ‘granada interface ep’.


you can watch the video over at vimeo.com/408798106 or in the video section below.

there have ben rumours around announcing record of tides for an av live set to be streamed within the 2k2d festival schedueld for april 30, 2020.
actually, sven was requested to perform but as there was no technical way to create a convincing event the show was quickly cancelled again.
the cancellation is not related to a general criticism of streamed perormances to be done from home during lockdown.
zany music has announced to have lots of great material as this may be the time for releasing music, especially if the commercial aspect has no priority.
according to the recent situation and schedule 'black album' is not supposed to be the last release for 2020.
nevertheless, no live performances or streams are planned recently.

you can watch the video over at vimeo.com/408798106 or in the video section below.



michael schreiber aka all notes off created a beautiful rework of the record of tides track ‘mountains’ as taken from ‘collected riffing works’.
the quite spontaneous production and release is promoted by a video which is also directed by schreiber.
the rework follows the given minimalism of the original track while adding english as well as german vocals.
sven piayda announced to be stunned by the rework and hopes for more treatments of his tracks by schreiber and others.
he also admits ‘mountains’ to be the least track he would have expected for treatment.
a remix/rework compilation might be released when enough great material is available.
additionally, he is believed to be recently working on ‘collected riffing works 2’.

update 2020-04-08: record of tides live mate and reworking collaborator michael schreiber a.k.a. all notes off
has finally released his debut album as free download bundle on his website over at all-notes-off.de.
on ‘rise and decay’ schreiber demonstrates his full range of electronic styles from ambient electronica to dark pop and a lot in between.
you might already know schreiber from the 2019 heavy rotation list,
his live appearance next to record of tides at beats im bunker festival in february 2020
and from his rework of ‘mountains’ which can originally be found on ‘collected riffing works’.
however, all notes off is an artist for your watch list for the debut album and beyond, live gigs and remixes. recommended!

as everyone is affected in the one or other way by the on-going corona crisis and shutdown situation
sven piayda is also considering ways to present material to make your time in quarantine more pleasant.
once again - if possible - stay home, work isolated or distanced,
be as rational and strict as you can, so we can go back to normal life as soon as possible.

as a fist offer zany music has updated the catalogue and download links, you can download numerous releases by record of tides,
AESTATE and renert trio for free. you can download and stream all record of tides albums directly from recordoftides.com.
(as long as it has been released digitally). the new site is also easily accessible via smartphone.



also zany music has preponed the release of MCPMF ‘thug life’ to offer more material for you to enjoy at home.
it is available via /CAMP now. next to the new hip hop mixtape, you can still download the 2017
compilation album ‘driftings’ by record of tides as well as the 2010 AESTATE live gig at audiodigitale.
additionally you can watch the ruhrpreis trailer and you can access all text available for the 2018 piayda solo show ‘adaptation (you´re mine)’.
the /CAMP is usually only available and accessible to people owning artworks by sven piayda or records (physical or digital) by AESTATE,
record of tides and affiliated projects, so we can offer changing content even after purchasing a certain piece.
now we are opening the /CAMP for everyone to download and enjoy the exclusive content. to access please register via studio[at]svenpiayda.com.
(your email will not given to third parties or used for newsletters or any other purpose.)



all about the release: back in august 2018 sven piayda reported in his blog about the story of this photograph:
one of my friends asked where this well furnished interior was taken (his guess was america…

(it was actually taken in an apartment in whitsable, england during some days off in summer 2018))
and that it looks like the album cover form a hip suburban rapper. well, so this is what the cover looks like now.
now I need to work on my rap skills to blow the scene away…
I could do some lame cloud rap on idm beats… maybe an new electronica album is more likely - or maybe post rock? you´ll never know.

however, inspired by the fictional cover and serious interest in rap and hip hop music, piayda has been working on a mixtape for months.
it is mainly based upon tracks which had been frequently listened to during work out and sports.
it features quite popular, rare and less known hip hop related music which is merged into a full set.
the artist or stage name MCPMF as well as the title 'thig life' are actualy not to be taken serious as they play with rap clichés.
nevertheless, the mixtape is a serous interest in hip hop and rap music.
the mixtape is available as mp3 and downloadable in the /CAMP exclusively.

caused by the on-going lockdown situation sven piayda is recently working in studio on finishing long-time projects.
this is not about new music but mixdowns and renderings of off/on-projects to be finished. ‘yellowcake’ (working title) is supposed to be an album
(or collection of tracks) consisting mainly of sample based productions. also the work ‘collected riffing works II’ is going on with mixing and working on post-production
adding an album to CRW I with a similar style. recently there are no release dates fixed for these projects and there is no plan to put out the music now.
additionally there are no live dates or listening events. there have been rumours about a live date in may but the dates have been turned down before.
there are plans to release a hip hop mixtape via /CAMP, also kreislauf.org is believed to be working on something.

contemporary digital artist matthias danberg´s instagram story as well as sven piayda´s record of tides intragram channel
have posted funny vice versa portraits next to the found record of tides logo. the posts may refer to an upcoming collaboration,
probably in context of the music project. danberg and piayda have already collaborated successfully in the past;
piayda contributed the music to danberg´s ‘order chapter 3’ movie, also both directed two videos for AESTATE.
more soon, hopefully.

record of tides will not appear live in 2019 anymore, but you can discover a sound piece by sven piayda at SG1 in duisburg.
the piece is entitled 'if and only if mash-up' and combines different sound works in a one hour loop.
the SG1 opens and plays the piece every monday from 5 to 8 pm until december 23.
new av live sets are supposed to be scheduled for 2020. more soon!

the sound installation complements the exhibition concept with another aesthetic channel.
in the 60-minute loop piayda reviews his sound works and weaves them into an installative composition.
strongly medially processed works by different composers and interpreters, such as the bee gees, charles trenet, pantera,
antonio montanari and scott mckenzie. the sounds are mixed with the noise of saturn´s rings, the eternally descending shepard sound and
the pitched down humming of the leap second. a computer voice talks about in an essay by samuel taylor coleridge
on the essence of art in order to turn later into a variation of yes and no.
also in the sound work there are references to pop culture, science and art history and
it reflects medial possibilities of presentation, reflecting, preserving and processing.

it is our massive pleasure to announce the release of 'collected riffing works', the fifth full length album by record of tides.
the album is quite surprisingly released once again by zany music and and is distributed by achive.org as digital version only.
the album surprised in style, sound and composition, also there have been no promotion in advance which is quite unusual for zany music.

'collected riffing works' is a collection of ten tracks which have been produced over the period of the past ten years which have been waiting to be released finally.
as the title already mentions, the album contains mainly guitar riffing based music focussing on the rock music influences of record of tides.
this release is actually no change in style, sven is recently working on electronic and guitar based music.

some heavy guitar sounds have also apperad already in the 2019 live performances, actually none of them had been taken from 'collected riffing works'.
however, record of tides may appear live in january 2020 again. more soon. 'collected riffing works' is now available via zany music and distributed via archive.org.

we have been waiting for this announcement for quite a while now. record of tides aka sven piayda did some live shows in 2019.
fortunately, some of them have been recorded and are available for free download now.
in may record of tides played among miss j-by and lemon & pilgrim at galerie der disziplinen in hamm for the electronica kulturnacht.
the performance had been recorded by dennis lemon via line and had been slightly edited afterwards and is now available for download.

the electric café open air festival at werdener wiesn was not recorded unfortunately, the bootleg is reconstructed by using parts of the used files combined with ambience.
it actually features the tracks performed plus an alternate ending, it does not cover all the live sounds which have actually been played.
therefore the bootleg is called ‘reconstructed & extended’.

unfortunately the show at szeniale has not been recorded, it is believed to have been very similar to the performance in hamm.

additionally zany music still offers the performance in eisenheim for electric café in 2018.
so zany music offers three quite different live performances featuring microphone, line or reconstructed sound.

check zany music to find the bootlegs for download, further downloads and the full zany music catalogue.

record of tides was also scheduled to play on october 12 at makroscope in mülheim among further electronic acts,

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.

eurasia electronica interview


2018_10_09 via svenpiayda.com/news





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
kreislauf.org
and distributed via archive.org and sonicsquirrel.net.

2018_06_20 via svenpiayda.com/news




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.

it is our massive pleasure to announce the upcoming release of 'endurance', the fourth full length album by record of tides.
the album will be put out once again by the hamburg based netlabel kreislauf.org and will be available digitally and for free on july 20, 2018.
as ‘endurance’ features about 108 minutes of music it is difficult to played it on a physical release.
zany music is recently planning 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’ will be available on july 20, 2018 via kreislauf.org and contributed via archive.org and sonicsquirrel.net.
