after a very long waiting period, we are extremely pleased to announce the release of ‘unrest’, the second album of architects of utter destruction. zany music already put out the single ‘no-one listens’ on february 2nd while releasing the promotional video to the song today via youtube. the album features eight songs among an album version of ‘no-one listens’ and was recorded in spring 2023.
the new songs feature architects of utter destruction formed with chris huff (AESTATE, penrose delta, primal scapes) on bass and jan van aachen (primal scapes) on drums. the band´s sound might be a little more transparent and synth driven compared to previous recordings. the band is also working on material for a third album, programming has been done, lyrics will have to be completed. the next album is supposed to feature more contributions by guest musicians. however, piayda announced to have some songs which might appear on a future album.

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.

a big thank you to michaela best for finalizing the reader, curator klaus wiesel for his big support while drafting and installing the show and a big thank you to artist heidi becker for technical support.


update 2024-05-06: you may like to see some impressions from the opening yesterday. please set your schedules for the upcoming asb wünschewagen benefit auction on may 25 at 3 pm. you can get a small version (24 x 18 cm) of ‘baltic friend’ which can already be seen in the current exhibition. more pictures in the exhibitions section.

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.

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.

the new songs feature architects of utter destruction formed with chris huff (AESTATE, penrose delta, primal scapes) on bass and jan van aachen (primal scapes) on drums. the band´s sound might be a little more transparent and synth driven compared to previous recordings. the band is also working on material for a third album, programming has been done, lyrics will have to be completed. the next album is supposed to feature more contributions by guest musicians. however, piayda announced to have some songs which might appear on a future album.

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.


digital reissues of the AESTATE ‘greatest hits’ (2015) album as well as remix compilations ‘patch’ (2010) and ‘prov aiida ep’ (2011) returned to the net. the reissues are available via zany music and downloadable for free via zany load, they will not be distributed via bandcamp for different reasons. zany music did a makeover on the meta data written into the files and will offer them in reliable zip format. the reissues contain the original mp3 files in original release quality. additionally, the /CAMP exclusive live recording ‘performance’ is offered on the /CAMP with corrected meta data. as phil barnett and sven piayda have announced to work on a new collaborative project again, zany music has announced to do a second reissue series as the remix albums feature four common tracks by barnett and piayda. back in 2021 zany music reissued the three AESTATE albums containing bonus tracks and live excerpts.

2024-03-03 cover design panel discussion at ludwiggalerie schloss oberhausen

on january 20 the ludwiggalerie schloss oberhausen opened the 'hipgnosis.breathe.' exhibition exploring album cover art and photo design by aubrey powell & storm thorgerson and celebrating 50 years 'the dark side of the moon'.
hipgnosis, the legendary british photo design studio founded by pink floyd friends aubrey powell and storm thorgerson, designed some of the most famous record covers in music history between 1968 and 1983. for pink floyd 'atom heart mother', 'wish you were here' and 'animals', among others. for led zeppelin 'houses of the holy' and 'presence', for genesis 'the lamb lies down on broadway' and for peter gabriel 'car', 'scratch' and 'melt'. record icon 'the dark side of the moo'n just turned 50 years old! in total, more than 415 cover designs have been created.
the exhibition of the ludwiggalerie schloss oberhausen was curated in cooperation with the browse gallery berlin and aubrey powell. the show will be on display until may 20, 2024.

escorting the show, the museum invites to a special event on sunady, march, 17: 'crossing boundaries: cover design panel discussion' with fabian elsäßer (cultural journalist deutschlandfunk/swr) and sven piayda as hosted by dr. sarah hülsewig (curator of ludwiggalerie). here elsäßer, hülsewig and piayda will discuss the work of hipgnosos as well as the connection between cover design and music. above you see a collection of pictures of piayda presenting numerous cover designs he created for record of tides over the years.

all info on the event on the bottom of this post.


above you see a picture of aubrey powell next to his gallerist during the opening of the show. piayda attended the opening and already wrote in the journal: the museum invited me to the show opening and as I am part of it somehow I thought I should go there. it was a fantastic opening actually, meeting old friends. I was not really a fan of hipgonisis, but I was afterwards actually. the team came up with brilliant ideas concerning cover design which I knew from the designers republic, but these ideas obviously appear a lot older… aubrey powell attended the opening and came up with brilliant anecdotes on paul mccartney, black sabbath and robert plant. a brilliant show that attracts music nerds (like me) as well as artists and designers (like me) and is a door opener to the hipgnosis universe.


sven piayda might be best known to ludwiggalerie visitors for his contribution to the 'let`s buy it / kunst und einkauf' 2017 group show. back in the day he contributed 'duracell video after vom bruch and fibonacci', a piece which is also part of the museum´s collection.




escorting the 2017 show, which also featured 'a sudden gust of wind', sarah bauer did an interview with sven piayda for the ludwiggalerie blog in february 2017. the blog has already vanished from the net but you can seill read the interview here.


since 2011 piayda exhibited numerous times at the ludwiggalerie over the years, you can check all documentaries of all art shows by checking the exhibitions section.




update 2024-03-05: the talk is already in preparations. next to the work of hipgnosis, further well-known album covers are supposed to be subject of the discussion. above you see a leaked collection of covers which may come up as examples. we hope for a great event, all info on the upcoming panel talk over at ludwiggalerie.de/de/ausstellungen/programm.

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.

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.


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.

birte-marie loehr & jan kromarek aka RECONQ have once again assembled works of mülheim based artists for the 2024 calendar of ‘mülheimer künstler für kinder’. this year sven piayda´s ‘maritime cousin’ (2023) is featured among numerous remarkable works. the ring binder is available from the museum shop of kunstmuseum mülheim an der ruhr at a price of 10 euro. the profits will be donated for children in need.

have a look at the recent cover for 2024 and the recent contribution. sven piayda has contributed work for the calendar for the third time, you may have a look at past year´s versions below.

unfortunately we do not have another copy for you as giveaway, please purchase your copy from the museum shop of kunstmuseum mülheim an der ruhr.

we are also happy to announce that the donated profits have been invested already: the erich kästner school in mülheim an der ruhr finally received hundreds of books selected by the staff. the school didn't have a proper library before, with a great deal of personal effort and help from outside, it is now complete. the official handover will take place on january 29 at 10 a.m. with the participation of the press and representatives of the city.

as just seen on the zany music site, the new record of tides album ‘playground magrathea’ is scheduled for february 9, 2024. 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 created by long-term collaborator chris huff.
plus: 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.

there have been rumors and plans, it took some months in production and distribution, but the electric café podcast is finally here: a two-hour radio program that the collective electric café ruhr has produced especially for internet radio/podcast. it presents 17 tracks of various electronic music styles featuring primal scapes and record of tides: from ambient to classic electronic music, from faster tracks to experimental experimental pieces - created by the members of electric café ruhr and some of their friends. the program also offers information about tracks and artists as well as an interview with the founders. a big thank you to jörg jankowitsch and michael schreiber!


digital reissues of the AESTATE ‘greatest hits’ (2015) album as well as remix compilations ‘patch’ (2010) and ‘prov aiida ep’ (2011) returned to the net. the reissues are available via zany music and downloadable for free via zany load, they will not be distributed via bandcamp for different reasons. zany music did a makeover on the meta data written into the files and will offer them in reliable zip format. the reissues contain the original mp3 files in original release quality. additionally, the /CAMP exclusive live recording ‘performance’ is offered on the /CAMP with corrected meta data. as phil barnett and sven piayda have announced to work on a new collaborative project again, zany music has announced to do a second reissue series as the remix albums feature four common tracks by barnett and piayda. back in 2021 zany music reissued the three AESTATE albums containing bonus tracks and live excerpts.
