it is our massive pleasure to announce the release of
record of tides´ long-awaited 'playground magrathea' album via zany music on february 9, 2024.
the album was already finished in 2023 and mainly inspired by the district of froho.
'playground magrathea' is the fifth album of the 'purchases' series,
the album is supposed to be the legit follow-up to 'pieces upon pieces' (2023) while using sample-based post-hiphop and idm production.

it contains already known tracks like 'hyperbowl' and 'easy shredding through the days'.
the videos for these tracks as well as the album artwork is (co-)created by long-term collaborator chris huff.
the album also features 'free (alternaitve version)' feat. jan-dirk platek
and was originally produced back in 2022 for their common ep 'boxes',
here the track is finally presented in a record of tides album context as alternative, maybe even better version.

the album will be available digitally only.

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.
record of tides will not perform live, but we hope to see you there!



christopher terhart´s movie debut titled 'kaivalya', an experimental documentary about solitude, is now set for release.
it is announced as a non-verbal and non-narrative piece of cinema 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 'purchases' series.
these tracks have been remixed and remastered and will appear without beats and/or stretched as score of the movie.
the soundtrack is supposed to be available via bandcamp parallel to the movie´s release.

the premiere of the full movie is scheduled for april 18, 2024 at südbahnhof in krefeld, germany.
the movie will be available for streaming on april 19, 2024.
zany music has announced to release the soundtrack on the same date.
more info on the premiere to be announced soon.

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.

next to the news concerning the movie coming up,
we also like to bring your attention back to the video for this track
from ‘pieces upon pieces’ called 'camp finals' as directed by christopher terhart.
the music video is the first output of a collaboration which started back in summer 2022.

sven piayda have announced to play a live set together at makroscope in mülheim an der ruhr at september 16, 2023.
while working in studio on new scapes songs the guys stared to play around with live ideas.

the live set will include known and unreleased tunes from both artists
while transforming it into real live version via real-time controllers and electric guitar.
after playing numerous jams in 2023, this will be the first live gig for record of tides as well as fro primal scapes
– and it will be a mash-up set.
both artist have already performed live together for ‘vivid euclids’
which is still available as official zany music release and live stream recording on youtube.

update 2023-09-08: unfortunately sven piayda cancels the gig because of personal issues

the mash-up set is still supposed to be played live.

the album is promotionally escorted by a new video directed by robin moedder.
moedder and piayda struck up their collaboration last winter considering common audio visual live performances.

we hope for future live performances to be announced.
