we are happy to pass on the announcements of upcoming record of tides glitch hop hdj sets
at hier ist nicht da and rosi in gelsenkirchen.
the sets will take place on march 24 at hind and april 20 at rosi.
nadine heckner of rosi announces:
a long cherished dream comes true. sven piayda will perform a dj set at my place.
he had to wait a long time for an appointment,
but now I am even more happy that I can present you his glitch hop hdj set.
save this date, even if it is still a long time from now.


record of tides is the electronica project of media artist sven piayda.
ambient, idm, post hip-hop and post rock are woven into an independent and sophisticated sound,
and the sounds are accompanied live by specially produced visuals.
record of tides celebrates electronic music beyond techno and soundscape.
the unique sound oscillates between composition and deconstruction,
from nostalgia to futurism, and explores the possibilities of the genre.
piayda looks back on releases and gigs over the last two decades and
remains independent and groundbreaking with its varied sound.

for 2023, piayda has come up with something special in addition to audiovisual live sets:
for the glitch hop hdj sets, he plays glitch hop, post hip-hop, electronica,
idm, vaporwave, downbeat, wonky, remixes, mash-ups, rare & unreleased.
in the consistently conceptual sets, the closely related genres of hip-hop and
electronica are woven into one another despite their differing popularity.

sven piayda has been working on the concept for months now.
check out the posters for record of tides hdj sets,
they are announcing the upcoming hdj sets now and will become collectibles later.

update 2023_01_26 via svenpiayda.com/blog:
I wanted to do a glitch hop set for a while now and offered the concept to some venues harvesting a lot of frustration,
so I am more than surprised to present two shows now.
I even feel scared of my own idea, I drafted it and it was put on the schedule by others
and now it is happening with me not knowing exactly what may happen.
it is exciting anyway, it may turn out great or lame, two chances, we´ll see…

these dates are standalone events for fun, somehow they are also promotional dates for the ‘post internet’ album
(which is lying around finised since two years…).
it is hilarious, I am already finishing the album after the album after ‘post internet’ and it will be great material.
in this context I am also working with artists and directors to have the right video for it.
so I will come up with another but final video by matthias danberg for ‘post internet’ and
I am recently working with christopher terhart, robin moedder and chris huff on upcoming material. there is great stuff ahead…

I am taking the visual site very serious here, but I do not want to do it all on my own as I found people willing to work with me
and contribute to the project and as I am thankful for their fantastic input.
I have realized to start working on the album covers when I feel an album in production,
I guess the cover is as important as the music, maybe the cover is everything most people know about an album,
maybe it is a door opener to some… keep an eye on the internet, great stuff is coming,
for the meantime let´s have some fun:

without any announcement in advance and definitely surprising record of tides released the new track
‘random darknet shopper’ on january 1st via zany music and distributed via bandcamp.
it is supposed to be available for free for a limited time only.
piayda has already debuted the track live during the gig at consol gelsenkirchen in 2021.
‘random darknet shopper’ is taken from the long-awaited album ‘post internet’ which was already finished in 2020
and originally supposed to be released by kreislauf.organistation which unfortunately missed to finish the process.
now the album will finally be released on february 24, 2023.
it does not belong to the ‘purchases’ series, the ‘post internet’ album is supposed to be the legit follow-up to ‘black album’ (2020)
while it uses the idm context for mixing up seventies rock with conceptional and arty electronica.
the title is a quotation from a work by swiss artist collective !mediengruppe bitnik.
during 2014 and 2016 the group programmed a bot to randomly purchase items from the darknet.

‘random darknet shopper’ on bandcamp




the track comes with a music video directed by matthias danberg available via youtube.
it features a first person perspective museum walkthrough exploring different sculptures by matthias danberg using computer game aesthetics.
danberg originally produced an environment for a game engine which was actually explorable via internet browser.
while the necessary software is no longer functioning, only the recorded walkthrough remains.
as the video illustrates a track called ‘random darknet shopper’, piayda came up with the idea to add night vision to the video.
danberg and piayda have already collaborated for the record of tides´ music videos ‘vogh beats2’ and ‘horns of paradise’.
their third video is supposed to be the closure of the video series.
the cover artwork for the digital single is also based upon a still from the video.

jan-dirk platek x record of tides will release their follow-up to the remarkable mini ep ‘expotential/frequentism’ on january 13.
the new ep will be called 'boxes', featuring three new collaborative tracks.
the release will be available via bandcamp and streaming,
the streaming version will feature an alternate cover which is now used for all collaborative works.

jan-dirkplatek.bandcamp.com




sven piayda wrote on the journal:
last year jan-dirk platek and me did our first collaboration for ‘expotential/frequentism’,
as the result turned out to be more than convincing for all of us I offered to do it again.
there were plans in summer but I actually wanted to have more time passed until we do a second try.
as we are both busy with projects and issues we did not focus it and I did not see it coming.
I was surprised to see a picture of him recording new material for me, a few days later I received three piano tracks.
I thought they were already quite dense and I did not really see what to do with it.
jan replied that I should take time and suddenly everything happened in two days, working parallel on all tracks.
when I sent mp3 demos of my versions, jan posted some very kind works on facebook, making my day:

I'm listening to the almost finished mixes of my collaboration with record of tides and I could cry from happiness.
when two people understand each other blindly on a musical level, it's really extraordinary.
I have met sven piayda only once in my life - and that was a long time ago.
sometimes great things come about without much discussion. it just fits.

on december 16, primal scapes aka michael schreiber will finally release his second solo album.
‘macrocosm’ will once again feature sven piayda on guitar, chris huff on bass and jan van aachen on drums.
schreiber has already produced ‘entertain’ (2020) with this band,
electronic musician and keyboardist andreas hilburg expands the line-up for the track ‘desperdida’.
the recording sessions have started directly after finishing the debut album in july 2021 without fixing any release dates.
van aachen, huff and piayda have released their debut album ‘monument’ as architects of utter destruction in the meantime in february 2022.

the new album turns out to be a synth rock album far away from pure electronic music.
the sleeve design and artwork has been produced by schreiber and piayda, based upon schreiber’s pixel randomizer programming,
piayda developed a series of pictures showing cgi surfaces.
these pictures have been processed ending up in the album artwork.

on friday, december 16, primal scapes will celebrate the release with a live stream event.
starting at 8 pm schreiber will stream the full album via youtube, as he has directed videos for every single song.
between the videos michael schreiber and sven piayda will discuss the production process and will also answer questions,
which will be delivered via chat.
additionally, a surprise guest will probably show up.

‘macrocosm’ will be available as digipack compact disc as well as in numerous digital formats,
distributed via bandcamp and zany music.



as we are going into the last month of the year we are looking for the final events of the year.
we are happy to announce sven piayda´s contribution to the lisaluna short film festival traditionally taking place on the shortest day of the year, december 21.
the festival schedules ‘illumination interlude’, an exclusive edit of the animated music video originally directed for record of tides´s track with the same title
and originally contributed to last year´s festival which was cancelled due high corona infection numbers.
caused by restrictions of pandemic measures, the festival did not take place in 2020 and 2021.
for 2022 the festival has moved from the st. josef church basement to stapeltor in duisburg.

sven on the website intro picture used for 'songbook', taken from the journal:
the museum also featured a show concerning women in art, also on the question on being underrepresented
as creators and being declassified as (sexual) objects in works.
this is a complex topic I would not dare to discuss here but there was one position really striking my mind.
bolette berg and marie hoeg have been working as photographers at the end of the 19th century.
their heritage contained a box labelled as private with a bunch of pictures taken, obviously unreleased and obviously just for fun.
here the two female photographers stage themselves as boy, man, bear or smoking in a boat.
these pictures must be a hundred years old, these still look beautiful and fresh but they teach you one thing:
a lot of discussion and finding on diversity is a lot older than often realized.




and here the two women used the medium to capture some playful thoughts for the time afterwards.
here the age of (post-) postmodernism comes in. we already know,
that there is nothing new left and these women even have the medium to proof it for us.
it is the conserving medium which enhances our post-modernistic world. it should be relaxing and calming every discussion we´re in.
it is not new, we have seen it before, find out what we already have and then consider if you still feel like starting a revolution.
I felt like neo meeting the architect in matrix. so what do bolette berg and marie hoeg teach you, apart from making great photographs?

it is our great pleasure to finally announce the new collaboration of christopher terhart and sven piayda for terhart´s movie debut.
‘kaivalya’ can be described as an experimental documentary type of film about solitude,
it is a non-verbal and non-narrative piece of cinema. the film features scenes of decay,
nature and various places all over germany, focussing on broken beauty.
on terhart´s request piayda has scored the movie based upon known and previously unreleased record of tides tracks from the ‘purchrases’ series.
these tracks have been remixed and remastered and appear without beats as score of the movie.
the soundtrack is supposed to be available via bandcamp parallel to the movie´s release.

the release of the full movie is scheduled for 2023 without any fix date so far as it is still in (post) production.
you can already watch the trailer over here: vimeo.com/759265114

all info on christopher terhart and the project over at www.christerhart.net

terhart and piayda have already collaborated on ‘penicilina’ by record of tides.
the track ‘vorwegnahme’ was originally produced by terhart a.k.a. monkelmann,
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.
christopher terhart is also known as visual artist mostly known for great infrared photography.
