saturday record of tides aka sven piayda performed a secret audio only live set
at electric café oberhausen. next to record of tides artists like inter:pol,
donk and others performed that night at october 6. even when the gig event
was public, no information was spread in advance.
the record of tides
set was only about 24 minutes long featuring tracks like ‘the saints’, ‘care’
and ‘harvest’ from the current album ‘endurance’. next to the known tracks
the middle of the set was dominated by two or three quite abstract and new tracks.
fortunately the performance was recorded and is available for free as digital
bootleg. it is published via archive.org and can be downloaded from here.
piayda has announced to return to electric café with public relations
probably in 2019. the very different gig at eurasia electronica this summer
is also supposed to be released as digital bootleg in the future.
it is our massive pleasure to announce the release of 'endurance', the
fourth full length album by record of tides. the album is released once again
by the hamburg based netlabel kreislauf.org and and is distributed by achive.org
‘endurance’ has been programmed, recorded and produced
in summer 2017 when piayda returned home from hospital after having a surgery
to fix a pilon fracture (check the journal: 2017-10-03
the man who fell to earth (and broke a leg) | entry by sven) and using the
time for a new album. the album features 20 tracks and is mostly inspired
by aphex twin, boards of canada (in the pre-warp era) and guitar work by queen
and seefeel. it is supposed to be the best work of record of tides so far,
accorting to kreislauf.org label boss andreas buttweiler.
features about 108 minutes of music it is difficult to put it on a physical release.
zany music is recently working on a cd version reducing the tracklist while
adding an exclusive track to it. we will announce when the physical release will
french musician and blogger
thierry massard is pretty into the music of record of tides and finds some great
words on the album. (please note: the english version of the original french

Un an ... Une année (moins
un jour) après le très remarquable et remarqué "Solna" pour l'impérieux Kreislauf,
Sven Piayda (aka ROT) nous invite à maintenir temporellement notre avidité
(peu raisonnable, admettons-le) pour le bel ouvrage. 20 pièces ciselées durant
un exil convalescent, durant lequel, Sven a mis en oeuvre cette magnifique
faculté d'un regard distant (le recul), associée à la cruelle et objective réalité
d'une proximité contrainte. Le résultat ? Fort loin d'une hypothétique concentration
d'atomes crochus agglomérés, monolithiques et prévisibles en pareille situation
créative, "Endurance" démontre la grande cohérence d'un esprit vagabond et
prompt à ouvrir de nouvelles pistes. Si d'aventure, l'endurance peut parfois
conférer à une certaine résistance restrictive, ici il n'en est rien, Record
Of Tides nous régale de saveurs et de contrastes - Un exhausteur de goût!
year... One year (less a day) after the very remarkable and noticed "Solna" for
the imperious Kreislauf, Sven Piayda (aka ROT) invites us to maintain temporarily
our greed (not very reasonable, let us admit it) for the beautiful work. 20 pieces
chiselled during a convalescent exile, during which, Sven implemented this
magnificent faculty of a distant glance (the retreat), associated with the cruel
and objective reality of a constrained proximity. The result? Far from a hypothetical
concentration of agglomerated, monolithic and predictable chemistry in such a
creative situation, "Endurance" demonstrates the great coherence of a vagabond
mind and quick to open new paths. If adventure, endurance can sometimes confer
a certain restrictive resistance, here it is nothing of the sort, Record Of
Tides regales us with flavours and contrasts - An enhancer of taste! (Translated
