on friday, december 3, 2021 at 8 pm michael schreiber and sven piayda will add the next chapter to their collaborative euclid series.
‘vivid euclids’ will be a live performance streamed via youtube from primals studios.
the set will feature live versions of tracks from the euclid series as well as older and unreleased tracks.

on january 1 ,2021 primal scapes and record of tides released their collaborative album ‘revenant euclids’
without any announcement in advance via zany music and distributed via bandcamp.
the album features ten tracks mostly based upon randomized euclidian pattern.
the collaborative album was produced in november and december 2020.
following their highly appreciated collaborative album, primal scapes x record of tides released the appendix ep ‘sweven euclids’
on march 1, 2021 using similar production methods without creating any beats within their ambient pieces.
the collaborative ep was produced in january and february 2021.

michael schreiber explains the approach and working process:
to perform electronic music live always has a limiting factor - which is only two hands and two feet per musician.
due to that these performances sometimes feel lame (although they sound nice) when there is too many playback material.
the approach we choose for the next live stream is different from that and could be called it-based.
think of an audio-workstation as a giant modular system with tons of modules like clocks, logical units.
these modules are arranged into independent sequencers and can be compared to little programs running and doing music.
instead of triggering keys or buttons which directly trigger a sound we will perform ‘them’ and change the ‘programs’ doing that for us.
this might be a little abstract way of making music - as there is no creativity inside the machine -
and pressing a key or button to trigger a certain note or sound in that moment is different
from saying the program that the chance for that event to happen increases.
nevertheless it is fun - an interesting and highly efficient way of making music.

the ep also features the track ‘concrete walls of gruga’ which is already well-known as remix by we deserve this.
now zany music drops a collection of remixes by prominent artists
exploring the possibilities of the track while expanding it into numerous genres.

‘concrete walls of gruga’ has been reworked by kratzwerk, we deserve this, konvlikt, wesenberg, primal scapes and record of tides.

the origin of this production traces back to an anticipated collaboration of kratzwerk and record of tides.
guido richter a.k.a. kratzwerk asked for stems of the track and a little later further artists joined the project
while using the same stems to adapt the track into their style.
fun fact: sven piayda plays guitar on the primal scapes remix on behalf of michael schreiber.
it was recorded during (yet unfinished) sessions for a new primal scapes album. the track also features chris huff on bass.

update 2021-09-20: our friend thierry massard wrote a review on ‘concrete walls of gruga remixes’ for nocovision:
not content with sharing an original success with himself sven piayda has called together a dream team,
discreet in appearance, but which will certainly make history.

last thursday, august 12, record of tides performed an open air audio visual live set at consol in gelsenkirchen
supported by fellow live electronic artists lemon & pilgrim.
even as the stage and light situation was not suitable for video projection sven piayda managed to show a visual presentation via screen.
the night was curated by visual artist roman pilgrim and is part of the summer stage festival.
fortunately fellowship artist michael schreiber took care of documenting the event,
so we are happy to hand over some audio and video snippets of this great set to you.
a live bootleg delivering the full audio recording of this gig is likely but not scheduled yet.

record of tides is not scheduled for further live events recently (nothing is likely for 2021)
but is expected to return to gelsenkirchen for the szeniale festival on august 20, 2022.



recordoftides.com is uploading incoming pictures of the performance. as there is more and more media made available via this site,
the webmaster is working on some new structures, some links might not work properly recently,
but these issues will be fixed in the upcoming weeks.




the show ended with a long, alternative and live improvised version of ‘beats over rags’
followed by (a police sirens passing by and) the crowd cheering.
the track is now available (probably for limited time as single track) and will be added to the ‘gimmicks ep’ as bonus track.
a live bootleg delivering the full audio recording of this gig is not scheduled yet but will be available via recordoftides.com.
(the track has vanished as single track from bandcamp and is now available as unlisted bonus track of the 'gimmicks ep'.
