2020-05-28 piayda reveals 'aural park' project and vinyl edition
caused by the on-going lockdown situation, closed galleries, museums and stages there is no open exhibition on display featuring work by sven piayda with the exception of the permanent exhibition at galerie treppenhaus in nuremberg. all scheduled shows have been postponed or cancelled. also there are no live dates or dj sets scheduled to take place recently. therefor piayda has working in and with the studio on the upcoming ‘needle in the multiverse’ solo show. next to the upcoming solo show another project has been developed.

now piayda and the studio reveal a new summer project being a mixture of exhibition art and playing music. within the aural park project piayda will take some of his recent sound works as well as exclusively produced versions of record of tides tracks into private and public parks where they will be played by small music devices. all events are supposed to take place in an open air context, therefor (and depending on the weather) the listening events will be announced only a few days in advance via facebook events.




the four exclusive versions from tracks originally found on the 2017 album ‘solna’ will be released on zany music and will be available on transparent vinyl as limited edition only. the record is scheduled to be released on june 26 but is expected to be sold out on day of release. in case of being interested in purchasing a copy of the edition make sure to contact the studio now.

as there will be vinyls coming up which we expect to be sould out rapidly, we would like to offer a preview:
on request you can listen to sven piayda´s 'future perfect (lvb#10)' and record of tides 'dawn reversed (aural park version)'.

back in early 2017 the ludwiggalerie schloss oberhausen exhibited the video piece ‘duracell video after vom bruch and fibonacci’. the well-noticed work became and iconic piece of the show and was supposed to become part of the museums collection. up to now, the studio did not manage to produce the work as available decision. as the dvd is an out-dated medium now the studio will focus on producing a dvd edition now – as video works may only be available as file in future. the studio has been very busy on completing the ‘duracell after vom bruch and fibonacci’ dvd edition. above you can see some impressions and installation views from the piece exhibited at kunstmuseum mülheim back in 2016. in case of being interested in getting a dvd edition piece of ‘duracell video after vom bruch and fibonacci’ please contact the studio directly.

we are happy to announce that sven piayda is featured in episode 017 of the ‘natürliche ausrede’ podcast. in the 93 minute conversation host chris braucks and sven piayda talk about art, music, upcoming collaborations, profitable systems and cultural sustainability. unfortunately the podcast is only available in german language, but is recommended listening to as both are interested and interesting conversation partners.
within the episode you can hear snippets of the record of tides track ‘dawn reversed (aural park version)’ as it is supposed to be released on vinyl soon.

the escorting text states:
if you take a look at his website, which is well worth seeing and extensively documented, you can quickly see in how many disciplines the mülheim-based artist sven piayda has competed. photography, conceptual installation art, music, video are just a few of them. we talk about the urge behind the creative process, the truthfulness of photos, the role of the self-image in social media and the mildness of old age that extends the taste for music.


the podcast is available on common platforms and can be found directly over at skeleton-crew.de/na017. you will find all episodes of ‘natürliche ausrede’ over at skeleton-crew.de/na and anchor.fm/natuerlicheausrede.

above you see braucks and piayda during the recording, perfectly socially distanced as recommended. in the blog piayda wrote about developing and starting a podcast series back in autumn 2018 but dismissed the project in summer 2019. however, another episode with braucks and piayda is in consideration, further collaborations are possible.




we are happy and surprised to announce the collaboration of michael schreiber (stage name ‘all notes off’) and sven piayda (a.k.a. ‘record of tides’) for an upcoming release. schreiber and piayda have produced a number of reworks and remixed of tracks originally created by the other one. the collection of newly edited tracks will be released as ‘altered stems’ in june via zany music as download only. even if all notes off is known for dark wave while record of tides is recognized for contemporary idm the common album is believed to be quite close to pop music.

all notes off and record of tides have been both performing live for ‘beats im bunker’ festival in duisburg. schreiber has also been recognizable in 2020 for participating in ‘heavy rotation 2019’ and reviews on recent releases. also he is believed to be involved in further on going projects like ‘aural park’ and a podcast series. additionally, further music collaborations are scheduled.


the video for the first rework on record of tides’ ‘mountains’ was released about one month ago but without knowledge of further tracks to be ahead. the full album was produced around easter. a new video will also come up to escort the release.

caused by the on-going lockdown situation there is no open exhibition on display featuring work by sven piayda. therefore piayda is recently focussing on producing and releasing music as well as working in and with the studio on the upcoming ‘needle in the multiverse’ solo show.

still dates cannot be fixed recently but the show is expected to open in autumn/winter 2020 or even later. the stow is supposed to feature the ‘multiverse memory’, a variation of the well known ravensburger memory card game. it will feature 48 cards produced by ravensburger while appearing slightly different than the original game, while playing the players will have to modify the rules to get along with the game. as the game is not on sale, the studio offers ‘multiverse memory card set’ editions consisting of three memory cards featuring works from different (and previously unreleased) mini series. while the sets will be offered as editions escorting the ‘needle in the multiverse’, you can purchase them now already for bargain price.

as you see, the multiverse memory card sets consists of three original six by six centimetre ravensburger memory cards with the typical blue typography in rapport. (click image for full view)

it is our massive pleasure to announce that the studio is now offering a memory game featuring sven piayda´s tableau works as pictured on the cards. the memory game has been produced by ravensburger on demand, the german traditional company ravensburger has originally developed the memory game and has put it on the market first.

the piayda memory game features 72 cards (i.e. 36 different tableaus on 36 pairs), a tin box and a booklet explaining the memory game rules in different languages, all in ravensburger quality, see picture above. please note: this version is not a regular release by ravensburger, it is not available from the company.

the memory game is one of many ideas of the studio to create output next to artworks or art shows and is now entering new contexts. also, the studio is recently working on a variation of the memory game to play an important part in an upcoming solo show. you will find out about the development of this new game here.

the memory game is available exclusively from the studio. if you are interested in getting your version, please mail to studio[at]svenpiayda.com, also to get info on the price, shipping cost and delivery time span. have a look at more pictures of the piayda memory game over at the studio purchase site.more info and pictures over at studio.svenpiayda.com.





it is our massive pleasure to announce the release of 'black album', the sixth full length album by record of tides. the album is out once again on the hamburg based netlabel kreislauf.org and is available digitally and free. kreislauf.org has already released the reissue of record of tides´ debut 'timber' from 2004 in 2014, the follow up 'vessel' in 2016, the 2017 album ‘solna’ and the 2018 album ‘endurance’.

‘black album’ has been programmed, recorded and produced between autumn 2016 and spring 2019. the album features 10 tracks and is mostly inspired by aphex twin and boards of canada (also some autechre for deconstructed parts) again, there are no guitars or any acoustic instruments on the album. the album is prominent for bocesque sounds and melodies while contrasting complex beat programming.

some new tracks have already appeared in record of tides live sets of the last three years, sometimes in alternative versions. you may like to check the bootlegs and snippets floating in the net for new sounds.

kreislauf.org label boss andreas buttweiler and sven piayda have been discussing the holding of the release date (which had been around behind closed doors before) in times of the on-going crises. both agreed that releasing the album digitally only does not need any close distance personal contact. also enjoying new music is primarily something personal you probably do for yourself, in your living room, your car, via headphones in the garden or doing sports. this release does not conflict with current social distancing rules. even feedback, discussions and reviews usually appear in digital media. feedback is well appreciated.

‘black album’ is available now and is released via
kreislauf.org and is distribued via archive.org.

recordoftides.com



zany music has released a new video for the record of tides track ’snow_1-7_140’ in advance of the upcoming release of the 'black album’ on kreislauf.org. the video portrays a balloon hovering around in a basement room. the balloon, by the way, had been a funny gift by dj kent granyon for sven piayda´s 40th birthday. the footage therefore is believed to be taken in 2017 during the production of a video installation piece, which has not been shown yet. the video is once again directed by sven piayda. ’snow_1-7_140’ has already been released back in spring 2018 as part of the vinyl only ‘granada interface ep’.





zany music has preponed the release of MCPMF ‘thug life’ to offer more material for you to enjoy at home. it is available via /CAMP now. next to the new hip hop mixtape, you can still download the 2017 compilation album ‘driftings’ by record of tides as well as the 2010 AESTATE live gig at audiodigitale. additionally you can watch the ruhrpreis trailer and you can access all text available for the 2018 piayda solo show ‘adaptation (you´re mine)’.
the /CAMP is usually only available and accessible to people owning artworks by sven piayda or records (physical or digital) by AESTATE, record of tides and affiliated projects, so we can offer changing content even after purchasing a certain piece. now we are opening the /CAMP for everyone to download and enjoy the exclusive content. to access please register via studio[at]svenpiayda.com.
(your email will not given to third parties or used for newsletters or any other purpose.)

all about the release: back in august 2018 sven piayda reported in his blog about the story of this photograph:
one of my friends asked where this well furnished interior was taken (his guess was america…
(it was actually taken in an apartment in whitsable, england during some days off in summer 2018)) and that it looks like the album cover form a hip suburban rapper. well, so this is what the cover looks like now. now I need to work on my rap skills to blow the scene away… I could do some lame cloud rap on idm beats… maybe an new electronica album is more likely - or maybe post rock? you´ll never know.
however, inspired by the fictional cover and serious interest in rap and hip hop music, piayda has been working on a mixtape for months. it is mainly based upon tracks which had been frequently listened to during work out and sports. it features quite popular, rare and less known hip hop related music which is merged into a full set. the artist or stage name MCPMF as well as the title 'thig life' are actualy not to be taken serious as they play with rap clichés. nevertheless, the mixtape is a serous interest in hip hop and rap music. the mixtape is available as mp3 and downloadable in the /CAMP exclusively.






still on: record of tides´ recent albums ‘collected riffing works’ and ‘endurance’ are still available from zany music and kreislauf.org. you may like to check tem out among further releases over at archive.org.

the show was launched on november 1st 2015 and was extended to be shown until january 2016, featuring introduction text and conversation with gallerist michael em walter. the digital show vanished from the web and after the following show the gallery quit business. now, the gallery has updated the achieves and ‘#howdeepisyourlove’ has returned to the digital screen, you experience the virtual only show as it was drafted and presented back in 2015, see links below.

the memory game is one of many ideas of the studio to create output next to artworks or art shows and is now entering new contexts. also, the studio is recently working on a variation of the memory game to play an important part in an upcoming solo show. you will find out about the development of this new game here.

it is our massive pleasure to announce the release of 'black album', the sixth full length album by record of tides. the album is out once again on the hamburg based netlabel kreislauf.org and is available digitally and free. kreislauf.org has already released the reissue of record of tides´ debut 'timber' from 2004 in 2014, the follow up 'vessel' in 2016, the 2017 album ‘solna’ and the 2018 album ‘endurance’.

‘black album’ has been programmed, recorded and produced between autumn 2016 and spring 2019. the album features 10 tracks and is mostly inspired by aphex twin and boards of canada (also some autechre for deconstructed parts) again, there are no guitars or any acoustic instruments on the album. the album is prominent for bocesque sounds and melodies while contrasting complex beat programming.

some new tracks have already appeared in record of tides live sets of the last three years, sometimes in alternative versions. you may like to check the bootlegs and snippets floating in the net for new sounds.

kreislauf.org label boss andreas buttweiler and sven piayda have been discussing the holding of the release date (which had been around behind closed doors before) in times of the on-going crises. both agreed that releasing the album digitally only does not need any close distance personal contact. also enjoying new music is primarily something personal you probably do for yourself, in your living room, your car, via headphones in the garden or doing sports. this release does not conflict with current social distancing rules. even feedback, discussions and reviews usually appear in digital media. feedback is well appreciated.

‘black album’ is available now and is released via
kreislauf.org and is distribued via archive.org.

zany music has released a new video for the record of tides track ’snow_1-7_140’ in advance of the upcoming release of the 'black album’ on kreislauf.org. the video portrays a balloon hovering around in a basement room. the balloon, by the way, had been a funny gift by dj kent granyon for sven piayda´s 40th birthday. the footage therefore is believed to be taken in 2017 during the production of a video installation piece, which has not been shown yet. the video is once again directed by sven piayda. ’snow_1-7_140’ has already been released back in spring 2018 as part of the vinyl only ‘granada interface ep’.





zany music has preponed the release of MCPMF ‘thug life’ to offer more material for you to enjoy at home. it is available via /CAMP now. next to the new hip hop mixtape, you can still download the 2017 compilation album ‘driftings’ by record of tides as well as the 2010 AESTATE live gig at audiodigitale. additionally you can watch the ruhrpreis trailer and you can access all text available for the 2018 piayda solo show ‘adaptation (you´re mine)’.
the /CAMP is usually only available and accessible to people owning artworks by sven piayda or records (physical or digital) by AESTATE, record of tides and affiliated projects, so we can offer changing content even after purchasing a certain piece. now we are opening the /CAMP for everyone to download and enjoy the exclusive content. to access please register via studio[at]svenpiayda.com.
(your email will not given to third parties or used for newsletters or any other purpose.)

all about the release: back in august 2018 sven piayda reported in his blog about the story of this photograph:
one of my friends asked where this well furnished interior was taken (his guess was america…
(it was actually taken in an apartment in whitsable, england during some days off in summer 2018)) and that it looks like the album cover form a hip suburban rapper. well, so this is what the cover looks like now. now I need to work on my rap skills to blow the scene away… I could do some lame cloud rap on idm beats… maybe an new electronica album is more likely - or maybe post rock? you´ll never know.
however, inspired by the fictional cover and serious interest in rap and hip hop music, piayda has been working on a mixtape for months. it is mainly based upon tracks which had been frequently listened to during work out and sports. it features quite popular, rare and less known hip hop related music which is merged into a full set. the artist or stage name MCPMF as well as the title 'thig life' are actualy not to be taken serious as they play with rap clichés. nevertheless, the mixtape is a serous interest in hip hop and rap music. the mixtape is available as mp3 and downloadable in the /CAMP exclusively.






still on: record of tides´ recent albums ‘collected riffing works’ and ‘endurance’ are still available from zany music and kreislauf.org. you may like to check tem out among further releases over at archive.org.

back in 2015 sven piayda was asked to do an online exhibition at gallerie tellerand, a gelsenkirchen based online only gallery project. after being very sceptical at first, the studio developed a show dealing with the issues of digital presentation and reduced dimensions presented in disciplines like photography, cgi, video and sound.
the show was launched on november 1st 2015 and was extended to be shown until january 2016, featuring introduction text and conversation with gallerist michael em walter. the digital show vanished from the web and after the following show the gallery quit business. now, the gallery has updated the achieves and ‘#howdeepisyourlove’ has returned to the digital screen, you experience the virtual only show as it was drafted and presented back in 2015, see links below.

2020-05-02 new editions available: early bird and last chance
caused by the on-going lockdown situation there is no open exhibition on display featuring work by sven piayda. therefore piayda is recently focussing on producing and releasing music as well as working in and with the studio on the upcoming ‘needle in the multiverse’ solo show.

back in early 2017 the ludwiggalerie schloss oberhausen exhibited the video piece ‘duracell video after vom bruch and fibonacci’. the well-noticed work became and iconic piece of the show and was supposed to become part of the museums collection. up to now, the studio did not manage to produce the work as available decision. as the dvd is an out-dated medium now the studio will focus on producing a dvd edition now – as video works may only be available as file in future. in case of being interested in getting a dvd edition piece of ‘duracell video after vom bruch and fibonacci’ please contact the studio directly.


in case of being interested, there are still catalogues from pas shows available, please contact us for more info on price and availability.

the ‘black album’ by record of tides is out for a week now and has triggered some good promotion and feedback all the way. once again thierry massard of nocovision released an originally french article while michael schreiber from all notes off also shared his thoughts via social media.
you can red the collect reviews on the black album over here.


the secret behind the cover of ‘black album’: record of tides´ new album once again features the familiar logo in a somehow cracked (or burned down) optics while revealing rainbow colours behind the cracks. the design idea is traced back to a curator´s request in 2017. back then piayda met with a gallerist and curator to consider possible collaborations. the curator was recently working on putting a group show together with works by different artists dealing with the work of kazimir malevich. after longer research piayda surprisingly ended up with malevich´s most famous work: the black square.
as you cannot create a variation of a black square piayda focussed on the cracks in the paint. therefore the structure given in piayda´s slightly smaller adaptation plays more on the coincidence than on the genius minimal idea. the work was offered for the exhibition but was withdrawn quickly afterwards as piayda turned down the exhibition contract (‘a list of obligations but no benefits’).
the work was not exhibited or offered since but the data had been taken up again for working on random artwork for record of tides. within the digital process the construction files were altered (and erased), but the rendering – or the recent black album cover – is in the net and in the world now. the malevich-based group show was supposed to be opened in the gallery in berlin, but (according to our knowledge) it has never been announced, opened or shown, it appears that the project has ended without any public notice. even if the album is called ‘black album’, the cover shows next to black all colours of the rainbow, exploring that things are not as simple as they seem to be.
the story behind the making of the cover can also be read as an anecdote of getting to a great place after facing numerous dead ends heading for another one.
‘black album’ is available now and is released via
kreislauf.org and is distribued via archive.org
and downloadable for free.

2020-04-24 record of tides ’black album’ out now on kreislauf.org


it is our massive pleasure to announce the release of 'black album', the sixth full length album by record of tides. the album is out once again on the hamburg based netlabel kreislauf.org and is available digitally and free. kreislauf.org has already released the reissue of record of tides´ debut 'timber' from 2004 in 2014, the follow up 'vessel' in 2016, the 2017 album ‘solna’ and the 2018 album ‘endurance’.

zany music has released a new video for the record of tides track ’snow_1-7_140’ in advance of the upcoming release of the 'black album’ on kreislauf.org. the video portrays a balloon hovering around in a basement room. the balloon, by the way, had been a funny gift by dj kent granyon for sven piayda´s 40th birthday. the footage therefore is believed to be taken in 2017 during the production of a video installation piece, which has not been shown yet. the video is once again directed by sven piayda. ’snow_1-7_140’ has already been released back in spring 2018 as part of the vinyl only ‘granada interface ep’.




there have ben rumours around announcing record of tides for an av live set to be streamed within the 2k2d festival schedueld for april 30, 2020. actually, sven was requested to perform but as there was no technical way to create a convincing event the show was quickly cancelled again. the cancellation is not related to a general criticism of streamed perormances to be done from home during lockdown (see 2020-04-07 more ideas for activities to refrain, what´s to miss? | entry by sven).
zany music has announced to have lots of great material as this may be the time for releasing music, especially if the commercial aspect has no priority. according to the recent situation and schedule 'black album' is not supposed to be the last release for 2020.
nevertheless, no live performances or streams are planned recently.



after the passing of david bowie in 2016 the website bowieart.com dealing with bowie´s art portfolio and art related activities has vanished quickly from the web. as david bowie made an impact on countless people and especially an impact on sven´s progress as a visual artist we decided to keep the link on svennet for nostagic reasons. unfortunately we had to discover that the link (or the domain) was now directed to a porn site, which is something that was not intended and surprised us a lot. we would like to apologise even if we are not responsible for content on linked sites. we check links regurlarly and consider closing the links section.

however, we would like to use this opportunity to bring back the articles from the journal, news, pav2 and bowiewonderworld on the 2000 bowieart print competition and sven winning hands down:

you may also like to read michael schreiber´s review on 'endurance':
very nice - the drum sounds with a touch of ‘visage’ sound but a little fatter in combination with an interesting flow through the track. [...] enjoyed listening to some very good music there. besides ‘reinform plus’ my favourite tracks are: ‘fulerum county' for the awesome bass line/sound, ‘perseids’ for the silence that lives in this track and ‘care’ has a sweet flow between the fat drum/percussion line and the melody/bass harmony.
a great start into the weekend while listening with a fresh cup of coffee.

2020-03-30 record of tides ’black album’ out april 24 on kreislauf.org


it is our massive pleasure to announce the upcoming release of 'black album', the sixth full length album by record of tides. the album will be put out once again by the hamburg based netlabel kreislauf.org and will be available digitally and for free on april 24, 2020. kreislauf.org has already released the reissue of record of tides´ debut 'timber' from 2004 in 2014, the follow up 'vessel' in 2016, the 2017 album ‘solna’ and the 2018 album ‘endurance’.

‘black album’ has been programmed, recorded and produced between autumn 2016 and spring 2019. the album will feature 10 tracks and is mostly inspired by aphex twin and boards of canada (also some autechre for deconstructed parts) again, there are no guitars or any acoustic instruments on the album. the album is prominent for bocesque sounds and melodies while contrasting complex beat programming. (piayda has called them ‘horror vacui beats’ in a forum.)

tracks like ‘snow_1-7_140’ and ‘cereal reduction’ have been released already via ‘granada interface ep’ on vinyl and dvd back in 2017.

some new tracks have already appeared in record of tides live sets of the last three years, sometimes in alternative versions. you may like to check the bootlegs and snippets floating in the net for new sounds.

kreislauf.org label boss andreas buttweiler and sven piayda have been discussing the holding of the release date (which had been around behind closed doors before) in times of the on-going crises. both agreed that releasing the album digitally only does not need any close distance personal contact. also enjoying new music is primarily something personal you probably do for yourself, in your living room, your car, via headphones in the garden or doing sports. this release does not conflict with current social distancing rules. even feedback, discussions and reviews usually appear in digital media.

‘black album’ will be available on april 24, 2020 via kreislauf.org and contributed via archive.org and sonicsquirrel.net.

recently, no live dates, listening events or online activities are scheduled. sven is recently back in studio to finish long time projects as ‘yellowcake’ and ‘collected riffing works 2’. also a series of live bootlegs (some even reconstructed and/or extended) are supposed to be released. within the art studio piayda is continuing work on the ‘multiverse’ show (no fixed date yet).

recordoftides.com



update 2020-04-17: zany music has finally released a new video for the record of tides track ’snow_1-7_140’ in advance of the upcoming release of the `black album’ on kreislauf.org. the video portrays a balloon hovering around in a basement room. the balloon, by the way, had been a funny gift by dj kent granyon for sven piayda´s 40th birthday. the footage therefore is believed to be taken in 2017 during the production of a video installation piece, which has not been shown yet. the video is once again directed by sven piayda. ’snow_1-7_140’ has already been released back in spring 2018 as part of the vinyl only ‘granada interface ep’.




zany music has preponed the release of MCPMF ‘thug life’ to offer more material for you to enjoy at home. it is available via /CAMP now. next to the new hip hop mixtape, you can still download the 2017 compilation album ‘driftings’ by record of tides as well as the 2010 AESTATE live gig at audiodigitale. additionally you can watch the ruhrpreis trailer and you can access all text available for the 2018 piayda solo show ‘adaptation (you´re mine)’.
the /CAMP is usually only available and accessible to people owning artworks by sven piayda or records (physical or digital) by AESTATE, record of tides and affiliated projects, so we can offer changing content even after purchasing a certain piece. now we are opening the /CAMP for everyone to download and enjoy the exclusive content. to access please register via studio[at]svenpiayda.com.
(your email will not given to third parties or used for newsletters or any other purpose.)

all about the release: back in august 2018 sven piayda reported in his blog about the story of this photograph:
one of my friends asked where this well furnished interior was taken (his guess was america…
(it was actually taken in an apartment in whitsable, england during some days off in summer 2018)) and that it looks like the album cover form a hip suburban rapper. well, so this is what the cover looks like now. now I need to work on my rap skills to blow the scene away… I could do some lame cloud rap on idm beats… maybe an new electronica album is more likely - or maybe post rock? you´ll never know.
however, inspired by the fictional cover and serious interest in rap and hip hop music, piayda has been working on a mixtape for months. it is mainly based upon tracks which had been frequently listened to during work out and sports. it features quite popular, rare and less known hip hop related music which is merged into a full set. the artist or stage name MCPMF as well as the title 'thig life' are actualy not to be taken serious as they play with rap clichés. nevertheless, the mixtape is a serous interest in hip hop and rap music. the mixtape is available as mp3 and downloadable in the /CAMP exclusively.






still on: record of tides´ recent albums ‘collected riffing works’ and ‘endurance’ are still available from zany music and kreislauf.org. you may like to check tem out among further releases over at archive.org.

you may also like to read michael schreiber´s review on 'endurance':
very nice - the drum sounds with a touch of ‘visage’ sound but a little fatter in combination with an interesting flow through the track. [...] enjoyed listening to some very good music there. besides ‘reinform plus’ my favourite tracks are: ‘fulerum county' for the awesome bass line/sound, ‘perseids’ for the silence that lives in this track and ‘care’ has a sweet flow between the fat drum/percussion line and the melody/bass harmony.
a great start into the weekend while listening with a fresh cup of coffee.



michael schreiber aka all notes off created a beautiful rework of the record of tides track ‘mountains’ as taken from ‘collected riffing works’. the quite spontaneous production and release is promoted by a video which is also directed by schreiber. the rework follows the given minimalism of the original track while adding english as well as german vocals. sven piayda announced to be stunned by the rework and hopes for more treatments of his tracks by schreiber and others. he also admits ‘mountains’ to be the least track he would have expected for treatment. a remix/rework compilation might be released when enough great material is available. additionally, he is believed to be recently working on ‘collected riffing works 2’.
find out about michael schreiber and his project all notes off over at all-note-off.de




more or less exactly ten years ago zany music released AESTATE´s long time project ‘patch’, the collection of remixes (mainly) of tracks from the ‘superflat’ album. you can download the remix album for free from zany music via the zany music site or via aestate-online.com. it features ten tracks at a lengh of 46 minutes.

back in 2018 zany music released the ‘petrichor ep’, a collection of remixes of this calm track. it is also available from zany music and archive.org. both remix releases feature treatmants by artists as rand0mf0rm, kill_scrxxn (also credited as droelf), chris huff and sven piayda.

remixing one another appears to a great way for electronic artists to interact while practicing insolation. recently, record of tides and zany music to not have any media to offer, but we would like to put your attention to the free available stems as delivered by battles (rmx.bttls.com) and gallops (instagram.com/g_a_l_l_o_p_s).


the studio is recently still busy in rendering long time projects, actually sven is alone in studio, but you can still contact the office. we are recently discussing a concept for the instagram stories: sven is supposed to guide through his own art collection giving info and telling background stories for every piece. still, this idea is in the making.

#letstalkaboutart


update 2020-04-03: the #letstalkaboutart insta webisodes idea is getting more and more serious. we hope to come up with something soon. for the meantime, follow sven piayda in instagram.

instagram.com/svenpiayda




update 2020-04-03: even if all cultural places have closed and it is tricky to fill the schedules recently the studio is in contact with a curator to place the upcoming 'needle in the multiverse' show. for the main video projection, different sequences are combined for a loose and abstract narration. restored from old production files the video will now also feature a high definition sequence of 'lightyears' showing the voyager space probe rushing by. more stills from the on-going production are supposed to come up in the future.




update 2020-04-07: as you can read in the journal the #letstalkaboutart web show has been dismissed. after working for weeks on the concept, the show is not going to be produced or screened now. also rumours of a podcast will remain rumours as not production is announced or scheduled. but there are also silver linings: the electric café electronic music group is recently working on a potcast series with piayda involved. the result may be exciting, more info hopefully soon.




update 2020-04-07: piayda is mainly working on the upcoming solo show ‘needle in the multiverse’ which will feature a sound installation to be composed of sound works as well of music by record of tides. within this production the studio is considering to release the ‘if and only if mash-up’ as played during the solo show at SG1 suisburg via /CAMP. this is still an idea to be played around with, more soon.




update 2020-04-08: record of tides live mate and reworking collaborator michael schreiber a.k.a. all notes off has finally released his debut album as free download bundle on his website over at all-notes-off.de. on ‘rise and decay’ schreiber demonstrates his full range of electronic styles from ambient electronica to dark pop and a lot in between. you might already know schreiber from the 2019 heavy rotation list, his live appearance next to record of tides at beats im bunker festival in february 2020 and from his rework of ‘mountains’ which can originally be found on ‘collected riffing works’. however, all notes off is an artist for your watch list for the debut album and beyond, live gigs and remixes. recommended!



it is our massive pleasure to announce that the studio is now offering a memory game featuring sven piayda´s tableau works as pictured on the cards. the memory game has been produced by ravensburger on demand, the german traditional company ravensburger has originally developed the memory game and has put it on the market first.

the piayda memory game features 72 cards (i.e. 36 different tableaus on 36 pairs), a tin box and a booklet explaining the memory game rules in different languages, all in ravensburger quality, see picture above. please note: this version is not a regular release by ravensburger, it is not available from the company.

the memory game is one of many ideas of the studio to create output next to artworks or art shows and is now entering new contexts. also, the studio is recently working on a variation of the memory game to play an important part in an upcoming solo show. you will find out about the development of this new game here.

the memory game is available exclusively from the studio. if you are interested in getting your version, please mail to studio[at]svenpiayda.com, also to get info on the price, shipping cost and delivery time span. have a look at more pictures of the piayda memory game over at the studio purchase site.more info and pictures over at studio.svenpiayda.com.



our friend and collaborator karla köhler will open her 2020 solo show at edel extra, nürnberg on april 22. next to making her production process transparent she will also offer a workshop. the show will also feature the collaborative work ‘granada interface (the lost tapes)’, a video for record of tides directed by sven piayda exploring köhler´s urban world designs. not only because of the collaboration, this show is highly recommended:
for years, the work of karla köhler has been the graphic reduction of urban architecture and its implementation through painting and media such as 3D printing and laser technology. in this exhibition the artist presents the for the first time open the working process of her urban world series and makes the details and steps of their work visible. (edel extra press release)
additionally, köhler and piayda are recently working on new collaborative works. more soon.
all info at the bottom of this post.

update 2020-04-17: as consequence of the covid-19 crisis the show has been postponed. we hope to announce new exhibition dates soon. stay safe!

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.

2020-03-14 show cancellations and on-going studio work
caused by the on-going corona virus crisis and the general lockdown of schools and museums as well as further public spaces and institutions we have to admit that all shows are postponed or cancelled until further notice. in this context we would like to support the lockdown decisions and would ask you to stay home and reduce personal contact to a minimum.

the studio has decided to reduce to skeleton staff, which means that piayda will take care of recent productions to be finished. the studio is recently working on high definition video sequences, sound as well as a ‘multiverse memory’ for an upcoming solo show.
you can still contact chris huff for future projects, the office will remain available until further notice.

also the studio will place video documentaries to compensate the impossibility to visit galleries or museums. next to this, a bunch of digital releases are supposed to come up via /CAMP and collaborative netlabels. we hope to be productive in the upcoming weeks even if we take this historic event very serious. this is a new situation for all of us.

please act responsively, take care!


at first, have a look at the most recent documentary of ‘if and only if’ at SG1 in duisburg. please check and like facebook.com/svenpiaydastudio for upcoming documentary features as well as up-to-date news.





the studio is recently working on a larger project: the next solo show is supposed to be called 'needle in the multiverse'. next to sound and a modified memory game (still in the making) there will be a high definition video featuring abstract and cryptic sequences playing with images from '2001', 'futurama', science and art history. for this projection, the studio is doing a reproduction of 'cassini' (2017) which was produced in pal quality to be combined for the ongoing 'golden record' monitor based video installation. cross your fingers, redoing the sequence is a bunch of work. the result will be outstanding!


update 2020-03-17: the studio is recently doing the rendering of the new 'cassini' sequence. things look good so far, please cross your fingers.




update 2020-03-17: for the upcoming solo show the studio is discussing and working on a bunch of material showing the unshowable. as there already is a sequence exloring the universe from the outside, there is recently not sequence showing the multiverse in general. now that the universe is defined, the studio is recently working on defining the multiverse. cross your fingers!


update 2020-03-18: caused by the on-going lockdown situation sven piayda is recently working in studio on finishing long-time projects. this is not about new music but mixdowns and renderings of off/on-projects to be finished. ‘yellowcake’ (working title) is supposed to be an album (or collection of tracks) consisting mainly of sample based productions. also the work ‘collected riffing works II’ is going on with mixing and working on post-production adding an album to CRW I with a similar style. recently there are no release dates fixed for these projects and there is no plan to put out the music now. additionally there are no live dates or listening events. there have been rumours about a live date in may but the dates have been turned down before. there are plans to release a hip hop mixtape via /CAMP, also kreislauf.org is believed to be working on something.



it is our massive pleasure to announce that the studio is now offering a memory game featuring sven piayda´s tableau works as pictured on the cards. the memory game has been produced by ravensburger on demand, the german traditional company ravensburger has originally developed the memory game and has put it on the market first.

the piayda memory game features 72 cards (i.e. 36 different tableaus on 36 pairs), a tin box and a booklet explaining the memory game rules in different languages, all in ravensburger quality, see picture above. please note: this version is not a regular release by ravensburger, it is not available from the company.

the memory game is one of many ideas of the studio to create output next to artworks or art shows and is now entering new contexts. also, the studio is recently working on a variation of the memory game to play an important part in an upcoming solo show. you will find out about the development of this new game here.

the memory game is available exclusively from the studio. if you are interested in getting your version, please mail to studio[at]svenpiayda.com, also to get info on the price, shipping cost and delivery time span. have a look at more pictures of the piayda memory game over at the studio purchase site.more info and pictures over at studio.svenpiayda.com.





back in august 2018 sven piayda reported in his blog about the story of this photograph: one of my friends asked where this well furnished interior was taken (his guess was america…) and that it looks like the album cover form a hip suburban rapper. well, so this is what the cover looks like now. now I need to work on my rap skills to blow the scene away… I could do some lame cloud rap on idm beats… maybe an new electronica album is more likely - or maybe post rock? you´ll never know.
however, inspired by the fictional cover and serious interest in rap and hip hop music, piayda has been working on a mixtape for months now which is supposed to be released via /CAMP soon. it features quite popular, rare and less known hip hop related music which is merged into a full set. when the mixtape (available as mp3) will be downloadable in the /CAMP, you will find out here first.

our friend and collaborator karla köhler will open her 2020 solo show at edel extra, nürnberg on april 22. next to making her production process transparent she will also offer a workshop. the show will also feature the collaborative work ‘granada interface (the lost tapes)’, a video for record of tides directed by sven piayda exploring köhler´s urban world designs. not only because of the collaboration, this show is highly recommended:
for years, the work of karla köhler has been the graphic reduction of urban architecture and its implementation through painting and media such as 3D printing and laser technology. in this exhibition the artist presents the for the first time open the working process of her urban world series and makes the details and steps of their work visible. (edel extra press release)
additionally, köhler and piayda are recently working on new collaborative works. more soon.
all info at the bottom of this post.


recently on display: in november 2018 the galerie treppenhaus in erlangen opened ‘hochhaus - hütte – hinterhof, der reiz des ungeliebten‘ by thomas r. hoeß, gabriella héjja and karla köhler. the exhibition featured collaborative works by karla köhler and sven piayda like the ‘granada interface’ music video for record of tides, the ‘from new york to los angeles’ series and the ‘k-city’ series. the exhibition ended in february 2019 but returned now as permanent exhibition in the first floor of galerie treppenhaus. this permanent version of the show only features köhler´s and piayda´s ‘k-city’ series. the exhibition is supposed to be on display until spring 2020.

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.

2020-03-12 ruhr gallery group show ‘schöner!’ postponed


as ludwig van beethoven would celebrate this 250th birthday in 2020, the ruhr gallery/galerie an der ruhr planned to honour the composer with a group show. the exhibition was supposed curated by klaus wiesel, who requested the studio to create and contribute a work to the show. the new sound piece 'future perfect (lvb#10)' was supposed to be exhibiteted at the group show.

the show opening was scheduled for sunday, march 22, but the gallery heads have decided to cancel the opening because of the on-going danger of spreading the sars-cov-2 virus. the opening is supposed to be delayed to a later date, the press release announces an opening in a ‘warmer season’ which indicates a date in late spring or summer.
the studio supports the decision as we are recently facing a difficult situation dealing with a new virus. however, piayda´s sound piece ‘future perfect (lvb#10)’ is available from the studio and will be exhibited later, there may even be enough time to reconsider options of presentation and offering vinyl editions, maybe even in record stores.

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.

more info at the bottom of this post.



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.


the doors will remain closed. the studio appreciates the decision and is recently working on ongoing projects. in case of further lockdown, the studio may offer something online or may close as well.
more soon.

it is our massive pleasure to announce that the studio is now offering a memory game featuring sven piayda´s tableau works as pictured on the cards. the memory game has been produced by ravensburger on demand, the german traditional company ravensburger has originally developed the memory game and has put it on the market first.

the piayda memory game features 72 cards (i.e. 36 different tableaus on 36 pairs), a tin box and a booklet explaining the memory game rules in different languages, all in ravensburger quality, see picture above. please note: this version is not a regular release by ravensburger, it is not available from the company.

the memory game is one of many ideas of the studio to create output next to artworks or art shows and is now entering new contexts. also, the studio is recently working on a variation of the memory game to play an important part in an upcoming solo show. you will find out about the development of this new game here.

the memory game is available exclusively from the studio. if you are interested in getting your version, please mail to studio[at]svenpiayda.com, also to get info on the price, shipping cost and delivery time span. have a look at more pictures of the piayda memory game over at the studio purchase site.more info and pictures over at studio.svenpiayda.com.





the studio is recently working on a larger project: the next solo show is supposed to be called 'needle in the multiverse'. next to sound and a modified memory game (still in the making) there will be a high definition video featuring abstract and cryptic sequences playing with images from '2001', 'futurama', science and art history. for this projection, the studio is doing a reproduction of 'cassini' (2017) which was produced in pal quality to be combined for the ongoing 'golden record' monitor based video installation. cross your fingers, redoing the sequence is a bunch of work. the result will be outstanding!

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 ray harms 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 ray harms 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!

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.

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.
