in 2022 record of tides appeared live for three times, a live performance, a hdj set and an av live set.
as these performances focus on the sample and synth based music of record of tides,
sven piayda has been considering on how to bring up live music from the ‘collected riffing works’ albums or the architects of utter destruction debut album.
as forming a new band is not an option, it is considered to perform live guitar to a pre-produced backing track.
incidentally and not announced, piayda appeared live for a jam session at anyway, essen, on septmeber 15.
as the this way of performing live turned out to be simple and convincing, future dates for jams are supposed to come up.
on the basis of ‘collected rigging works’ these live events will be called ‘selected shredding gigs’.

we expect these dates for ‘selected shredding gigs’
(not confirmed yet)

update 2022_09_27: here is another stunning episode: the anyway posted a date for a jam session.
I was curious but my day was already full of stuff I had to care for and I experienced some jams as pretty stupid
when singing collectives show up to present cover versions or the resident band simply plays their songs.
however, managed to show up on time, bringing my new white strat (finally playable but not yet completely finished) and the line6 pod.
well, the rest was super easy. all musicians showing up are a little bit insecure, open-minded and willing to do something together.
we really rocked a lot on improvised riffs, sometimes even improvised vocals with the audience applauding our jammed songs.
it was so thrilling and joyful that I want to do it again. I do not know if I want to found a live band again,
but recording songs and playing jams appears to be a great opportunity.
I want to some more jams in the next months or ‘selected shredding gigs’, see www.recordoftides.com.
I realized that it must have been over a decade that I played guitar in front of an audience
(or people hanging out at the same pub as I do) but I feel that I still can do it and should do it.
set your schedules: october 13, live jam session, anyway. seeya!

last sunday I did a blues jam session in bottrop.
it was strange to play blues songs I do not even know myself and wait for the solo spot.
doing a jam without any given song brings a lot more dynamics into it,
also some more euphoria. however, this is susie and me on stage for the first time in a decade.

it is our massive pleasure to announce the opening of the new sven piayda solo exhibition
at essen-based kunstverein kunstwerden on sunday, september 11 at 4 pm.
the show will be entitled ‘needle in the multiverse’ as curated by petra steinhardt
and will combine multiple disciplines and aesthetic impressions.

the press text states a following:
in his solo exhibition for kunstwerden sven piayda combines photography, video, cgi, found footage, multiples,
sound and music to create a multi-aesthetic experience.
an almost half-hour animated film and the one-hour soundtrack enable immersive immersion - as well as a memory game on display,
which makes it possible to experience the crux of fixed rules when viewing things.
full of cross-references to science, art history, and pop culture, the works from the last nine years quote nasa's probe missions,
de saussure's linguistic models, leonardo da vinci's landscapes, beethoven’s unfinished 10th symphony and hugh everett's multiverse theory.
the exhibition reflects the observation of things with limited means between infinite zooming out and authentic self-reflection:
is the answer to the question of divine genius to be found in the interuniversal, in the transcendent or in ourselves?


the show will also feature ‘future perfect (lbv#10)’, a transparent vinyl containing piayda´s attempt to finish ludwig van beethoven´s 10th symphony.
the piece has already been on display at kunstmuseum mülhein in 2021 and at galerie an der ruhr in 2020
– here the record was presented on a player to explore the sound. in the kunstwerden exhibition,
the record will not be played but sound piece will appear within the sound installation.
next to ‘future perfect (lbv#10)’ the soundtrack also feature parts of ‘saturn rings’, ‘la mer’, ‘the long way down’
as well as record of tides tracks ‘horns of paradise’ and ‘snd’.

the show, its opening and aligned events will fit recent pandemic related hygienic rules.
sven piayda is expected to be present during the opening, an artist talk is scheduled for october 23.
further dates to be announced.

record of tides returned to the szeniale festival in 2022 after performing in 2019 for the debuting festival.
thanks to fans and supporters, there is a lot of material documenting both gigs which have both turned out to be very good ones.
studio is recently puzzling all media together (including photographs, mobile phone video footage and line-out-recordings)
to produce two live bootlegs capturing the performances.
we hope to have these twin bootlegs produced soon.
they may be released in future, probably escorting the next szenale.

sven piayda has already blogged about the szeniale gig and the support by many great people.
the studio is still working on the material and will come up with more soon.
first of all, we are extremely happy to present a live snippet on youtube:
record of tides performing ‘b-petol’ with perfectly syncing visuals. the clip was filmed by sandra borbe,
who had already streamed parts of the performance live on instagram. we hope to present more snippets of the performance soon.

now you can exclusively download ‘b-petol (live at szeniale 2022)’ here.
record of tides has finally started to upload videos on youtube, most of the content is mirrored from vimeo.

the rot channel has also brought up a video documenting piayda playing ‘random darknet shopper’ at consol in summer 2021.
the track is supposed to be taken from the unreleased and upcoming ‘post internet’ album,
for which visual artist matthias danberg is working on videos.

this has been a remarkable weekend, actually an electronic weekend.
after postponing the szeniale because of the covid pandemic and working for about two years on it finally took place last saturday.
I was finally able to play the record of tides set. after much practicing and preparing I was able to play a good gig,
I am pretty happy with the result. even if the set-up contained a lot of (still on time) improvisation,
the whole thing looked good, the way it was supposed to be.
playing live (especially in gelsenkirchen) leaves me with mixed feelings, however, I have managed to also have a good time when playing on a festival.
so I am pretty happy with the result, it looks and sounds the way I want it to, but it also feels ‘enough’ or somehow finished.
I think I could change it towards a post rock show in the future and maybe play somewhere else.
so why would I come up with a french headline while not speaking it?
well, because of me performing and seeing dominik eulberg live I would call it the electric weekend.
translating it into french makes it sound like ‘fin de siècle’ which is marking an era but also the end of it.
maybe it was defining something, and maybe it is over. I do not know yet.
however, I am thankful for a lot of support and documentation by a bunch of lovely people around.
I am still getting pictures and video snippets which I am transforming into material for the record of tides website and hopefully for youtube.
so once again, a big thank you to marion neunzig, laura haurand, sandra kunce-haurand, sandra borbe and grisho schlüsi.
I will come up with a digital thank-you-bundle. recently, there are some tracks in the making,
but I will focus on an upcoming compilation album as well on a soundtrack for an experimental movie.
matthias danberg and me are working on audio visual material for an unreleased album.
also, my on/off project called architects of utter destruction needs a second album and the song writing process is a long one…
additionally, there is still a primal scapes album in the making… let´s have a closer look on the past weekend.




marion neunzig joined my gig at consol in summer 2021. by taking and posting some pictures we got into contact and I have invented her to performances afterwards.
fortunately, she was able to join this time and took some remarkable pictures. above you can see some impressions from the gig, more soon.

my friend and collegue sandra borbe has turned out to be a big supporter by taking pictures (and partying afterwards) at szeniale 2019,
frühlingserwachen and this szeniale. she has delivered some remarkable videos (from the instagram live stream) and pictures,
not only from the gig, also from the fooling around afterwards.

piayda turned the track into a longer and more complex version also featuring an acoustic guitar solo.
the spoken work part written by monkelmann adapts a found text based upon conspiracy theories.
by reinterpreting and translating it into german language it is turned it into a positive prophecy.

the album was once again mastered by michael schreiber.

single tracks have already appeared: ‘thinking often’ was featured in record of tides´ live set at heilig-kreuz-kirche in may as well as within the hdj set at consol.
‘new lift to compromise’ was already featured in primal scapes’ hdj set on a party at schreiber ranch in june.

record of tides performed a beautiful and complex set at kultur.picknick auf consol last saturday.
the tacks were mainly based upon idm and post hip-hop and were merged into one another without deconstructing them.
piayda also played a new track called ‘thinking often’ which appeared towards the end of the set ending up in aphex twin´s ‘rhubarb’ ambient masterpiece.
‘thinking often’ also appeared during his live set at heilig-kreuz-kirche in may. this might point on a release of new album.
