nevertheless, record of tides is supposed to return live with visual support in 2024 or 2025.
the next electric café festival at makroscope is scheduled for june 15,
this might be a possible live date to keep an eye on.

update 2024-05-10: as there has been no promotion
or communication concerning technical issues of the glitch hop set as scheduled for may 17,

[...] I started a tune called ‘texels track’ and another one called ‘anticipation for returnal’.
both appear to as a mixture of boards of canada and oneothrix point never – well, it could be worse.
in advance, as we were looking for apartments to book,
I did the track ‘ugly furniture and maritime view’ as inspired by the rooms we ended up in. [...]


from svenpiayda.com/blog: 2024-04-05 creativity on an island (and leisure of course)



this is an actual picture of me in the texel apartment, late at night with the headphones on,
pushing samples from one side to the other.
it is a kind of magic when you find yourself alone in a random place doing what you are doing.
this magic door into creativity and production or even flow can open every where,
it distracts you from time and space. nevertheless it is even more special to do it there.
so an upcoming record of tides album was partly made here and it somehow closes a circle:
the project name even illustrates my fascination for and inspiration from the sea,
you can tell by rediscovering my debut under this stage name entitled ‘timber’ which will turn 20 in august.


from svenpiayda.com/blog: 2024-04-05 creativity on an island (and leisure of course)




as I have mentioned before I stared (and finished) a new record of tides album in the winter of 2024.
michael schreiber (a.k.a. primal scapes) did the mastering once again.
as I wanted to have a feature by andreas hilburg on my record I asked him to do a melodeon solo improvisation for a track.
the result is stunning, the his melodic approach leaves the grid and makes it more vivid,
I edited and folded it a little bit and it even inspired me to add some drums and melodic ambience lines.
however, the three of us were back in studio together (even if these were three studios at three times)
and we recorded once again after starting our common sound for ‘despedida’,
an instrumental from primal scapes´’macrocosm’ album, written and produced by michael
featuring melodeon by andreas and guitar by me. you can/should listen to the track over here.
the record of tides album featuring the three of us is supposed to come up in summer.

o.s.cilliator a.k.a. oliver schupp is well-known for his all-live jammed electronic performances on youtube and the electric café,
especially the outstanding performance in january 2023. next to that, oliver is also a rock musician,
a decent supporter and a great guy to hang out with, so it was just an inevitable consequence to request a collaboration.
it would just be great to have this guy in my universe. oliver supplied much material to chose from, so I did and got a great idea.
the track holds his industrial scent but opens to aestival urban post hip hop. there is another record to come, and to be excited for…

christopher terhart´s movie debut titled 'kaivalya', an experimental documentary about solitude,
premieres on april 18, 2024 at südbahnhof in krefeld, germany.
it is announced as a non-verbal and non-narrative piece of cinema features scenes of decay,
nature and various places focussing on broken beauty, shot and edited over an nine month period between 2022 und 2023 all over germany.
on terhart´s request piayda has scored the movie based upon record of tides tracks from the 'purchases' series,
which you can also tell by the cover artwork. the tracks have been remixed
and remastered and will appear without beats and/or stretched as score of the movie.
the original motion picture soundtrack by sven piayda will be released on april 19 on zany music and will be available via.
this soundtrack is the first album sven piayda releases under his real name.

terhart states on piayda´s music: it's quite interesting with his pieces.
when you first hear them, they often seem too abstract and confusing.
the more you get into it, the more it works.


the premiere of the full movie is scheduled for april 18, 2024 at südbahnhof in krefeld, germany.
the evening will be hosted by christopher terhart giving an introduction to the scheduled films.
terhart has also announced to additionally show a pre-program featuring some minutes of older projects.
on terhart’s invitation two further movies by independent directors will be shown next to 'kaivalya':
the screening will start with 'to smile or not to smile' by bashar al murabea.
it is about a man who cannot reveal his feelings but after a stranger gives him a pill to help him do so his life takes a different direction.
it will followed by video artist robin moedder´s 'change'. it explores on-going processes of climate and the environment,
from the innocent beginning to the apocalyptic end.
robin moedder is also known for having directed record of tides´ 'deep cruise' music video.

all directors as well as sven piayda are expected to be present.

'kaivalya' available for streaming on youtube



back in 2023 christopher terhart already directed the promotional video for the track 'camp finals'
from record of tides’ 'pieces upon pieces' album. the video features scenes from the 'kaivaliya' movie,
the track appears in the movie as well as beatless version.




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.

and was originally produced back in 2022 for their common ep 'boxes',

sven already wrote in his blog that he is working on a new album after the upcoming one:
more or less accidently I started a new record of tides album and have already finished 12 tracks already.
it just happens when I hang out with different laptops on the couch,
layering samples to a weird post-whatever sound. it just happens.

also we are delighted to tell that michael schreiber announced to do the mastering once again.
have a look at the growing purchase series over here.

set your schedules: the next electric cafe will come up at makroscope mülheim on february 24, 2024.
