2020-02-10 piayda returns to ruhr gallery for ‘schöner!’ celebrating beethoven
as ludwig van beethoven would celebrate this 250th birthday in 2020, the ruhr gallery/galerie an der ruhr honours the composer with a group show. the exhibition will be curated by klaus wiesel, who requested the studio to create and contribute a work to the show.

in his work 'future perfect (lvb#10)', sven piayda dedicates himself to beethoven's unfinished 10th symphony, which was repeatedly sought to be completed - most recently with the help of artificial intelligence. piayda's version translates the fragmentary scores into synthetic sound, which seems as futuristic as it is out-dated. thus his version explicitly does not present itself as a questionable attempt at perfection, but as a kind of remix or free interpretation, which comes across like a soundtrack to a dystopian science fiction film - almost as if daniel lopatin (oneothrix point never) had composed a new film score for 'clockwork orange'. kubrik already used beethoven's music for his film.

the piece is supposed to be presented as sound installation (probably in combination with another sound piece), it may also be available as limited and signed transparent vinyl version. additionally, the studio has created a high-resolution cgi poster, which may escort the installation.


piayda already exhibited at ruhr gallery/galerie an der ruhr in 2017 during the ‘jackson pollock visiting’ exhibition, see picture above. for ‘pollock polyptych (random alignment)’ he used cgi technology to adapt pollock´s painting ductus. the series had been shown at the max ernst museum in brühl for the joseph und anna fassbender award in 2018.




last saturday record of tides performed at beats im bunker festival at medienbunker marxloh in duisburg. the festival was curated by raimond harmes who has also performed as raum für notizen. the line-up also featured artists and acts known from the electric café events like ig-75, all notes off and jingoba electric. record of tides performed a lot later and shorter than announced, also the exclusively produced visuals did not appear as projection. we would like to apologize for miscommunication and are recently discussing and considering contexts of future performances. we would like to thank raimond harmes once again for making this event possible by taking enormous effort in time and investment.
there are no further record of tides live dates scheduled recently, there are rumours about returning to the line-up for the upcoming szeniale in 2021.


update 2020-02-10: we have added the live documentary using snippets delivered by matthias danberg, a big thank you for filming and capturing some moments.
you can watch the video above or over at
recordoftides.com.


the catalogue escorting the jahresschau gelsenkirchener künstlerinnen und künstler also features a high resolution still of sven piayda´s video piece 'heliodorus' and an escorting text by roger rohrbach. you can contact the studio for a copy. the catalogue is also on sale at the museum and feature all exhibitited artists and their works!

update 2020-02-18: galerie an der ruhr will open the group show ‘schöner!’ on march 22 celebrating the 250th birthday of ludwig van beethoven. the gallery has alrady announced the show and now also contributing artists, see picture above. as you can see it is a quite big line up. we have already announced that piayda and the studio have been are working on a sound-based artwork for the show. still it is not clear if there will be a poster or vinyl escorting the sound piece.

it is our massive pleasure to announce the release of 'collected riffing works', the fifth full length album by record of tides. the album is quite surprisingly released once again by zany music and and is distributed by achive.org as digital version only. the album surprised in style, sound and composition, also there have been no promotion in advance which is quite unusual for zany music.

'collected riffing works' is a collection of ten tracks which have been produced over the period of the past ten years which have been waiting to be released finally. as the title already mentions, the album contains mainly guitar riffing based music focussing on the rock music influences of record of tides. this release is actually no change in style, sven is recently working on electronic and guitar based music.

some heavy guitar sounds have also apperad already in the 2019 live performances, actually none of them had been taken from 'collected riffing works'. however, record of tides may appear live in january 2020 again. more soon.

'collected riffing works' is now available via
zany music and distributed via archive.org.

we have been waiting for this announcement for quite a while now. record of tides aka sven piayda did some live shows in 2019. fortunately, some of them have been recorded and are available for free download now. in may record of tides played among miss j-by and lemon & pilgrim at galerie der disziplinen in hamm for the electronica kulturnacht. the performance had been recorded by dennis lemon via line and had been slightly edited afterwards and is now available for download.
the electric café open air festival at werdener wiesn was not recorded unfortunately, the bootleg is reconstructed by using parts of the used files combined with ambience. it actually features the tracks performed plus an alternate ending, it does not cover all the live sounds which have actually been played. therefore the bootleg is called ‘reconstructed & extended’.

unfortunately the show at szeniale has not been recorded, it is believed to have been very similar to the performance in hamm.

additionally zany music still offers the performance in eisenheim for electric café in 2018. so zany music offers three quite different live performances featuring microphone, line or reconstructed sound.
