update 2020-10-23: we sad to announce the postponement of the new sven piayda solo exhibition at essen-based kunstverein kunstwerden which was originally scheduled to be opened on sunday, november 8 at 4 pm. the show entitled ‘needle in the multiverse’ as curated by petra steinhardt combines multiple disciplines and aesthetic impressions. on october 21 the kunstwerden directorate has decided to close their rooms in reaction to rising infection cases of the covid-19 pandemic. the show is supposed to be opened when infection numbers go down again. the kunstverein kunstwerden and piayda considered working together back in 2013 and have scheduled a 2020 show back in autumn last year. as a result of the covid-19 pandemic a fixed opening date had not been announced as the pandemic development might have delayed announced dates. the studio has been working on this project for over a year now. during the lockdown certain sneak peeks have been posted via news and journal.

kunstwerden e.v. has released a german press release on the upcoming solo show by sven piayda:

Sven Piayda ‘Needle In the Multiverse’
November bis 11. Dezember 2020,
Eröffnung am 8. November 2020 von 15 bis 18 Uhr


Mit Sven Piayda ist in der kommenden Ausstellung ein Künstler zu Gast, der mit unterschiedlichsten Medien arbeitet und so zu einer multiästhetischen Erfahrung einlädt.

In Reaktion auf den Raum präsentiert und verwebt er jetzt hier Fotografie, Video unter Einbeziehung von computergenerierten Bildern und gefundenem Filmmaterial mit Sound und Musik. So ermöglichen beispielsweise ein längerer Animationsfilm mit seinem Soundtrack und ein ausliegendes Memory-Spiel, das die Krux fixer Regelwerke in der Betrachtung der Dinge aufzeigt, ein immersives Erlebnis.
Seine Arbeiten sind voller Querverweise auf Wissenschaft, Kunstgeschichte und Popkultur und zitieren beispielsweise die Sondenmissionen der NASA, Leonardo da Vincis Landschaften, linguistische Modelle des Schweizer Wissenschaftlers Ferdinand de Saussures oder die Multiversumstheorie des amerikanischen Physikers Hugh Everretts.
Mit seinen Werken in dieser Ausstellung reflektiert Piayda hier vor allem eines: die Betrachtung von Dingen, deren Möglichkeiten sowohl limitiert als auch unendlich erscheinen und ohne offene und unvoreingenommene Selbstreflexion nicht zu denken sind. Hierfür agiert er in seinen Arbeiten eingängig als auch provokant.

Sven Piayda studierte 1998 bis 2003 Gestaltungstechnik an der Universität Essen-Duisburg. 2006 begann er, frei als auch lehrend, verstärkt audiovisuell und computerbasiert zu arbeiten, wobei Fragen zur eigens verwendeten Medialität als auch generell zur Wahrnehmung immer wieder eine wichtige Rolle spielen. 2016 erhielt er den Förderpreis des Ruhrpreises für Kunst und Wissenschaft.


the show, its opening and aligned events will fit recent pandemic related hygienic rules.
sven piayda is expected to be present during the opening.
all info at the bottom of this post.


the show 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)

2020-10-12 kunstwerden opens sven piayda solo show november 8
it is our massive pleasure to announce the opening of the new sven piayda solo exhibition at essen-based kunstverein kunstwerden on sunday, november 8 at 4 pm. the show will be entitled ‘needle in the multiverse’ as curated by petra steinhardt and will combine multiple disciplines and aesthetic impressions.
the kunstverein kunstwerden and piayda considered working together back in 2013 and have scheduled a 2020 show back in autumn last year. as a result of the covid-19 pandemic a fixed opening date had not been announced as the pandemic development might have delayed announced dates. the studio has been working on this project for over a year now and is still not completely finished. during the lockdown certain sneak peeks have been posted via news and journal.

the press text states a following:
in his solo exhibition for kunstwerden e.v., sven piayda combines photography, video, cgi, found footage, sound and music to create a multi-aesthetic experience. an almost half-hour animated film and the one-hour soundtrack enable immersive immersion - as well as a memory game on display, which makes it possible to experience the crux of fixed rules when viewing things.
full of cross-references to science, art history, and pop culture, the works from the last seven years quote nasa's probe missions, de saussure's linguistic models, leonardo da vinci's landscapes, and hugh everett's multiverse theory. the exhibition reflects the observation of things with limited means between infinite zooming out and authentic self-reflection: is the answer to the question of divine genius to be found in the interuniversal, in the transcendent or in ourselves?


the show, its opening and aligned events will fit recent pandemic related hygienic rules.
sven piayda is expected to be present during the opening.
all info at the bottom of this post.


the show 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. michaela best already reported on instagram about testing the piece: when I was a child I have been a memory master. today I have unpacked this ability again to win a more complex variation of the memory the first time - the multiverse memory by sven piayda. unlike the normal memory, three (!) cards with different motives always belong together. sounds confusing and so it is. maximum difficulty level. the multiverse memory is a work for an upcoming exhibition of sven piayda in essen at the end of the year. so you will have the opportunity to prove your memory skills! single sets of three can be purchased as an edition.


kunstwerden and the studio will offer ‘multiverse memory card set’ editions consisting of three memory cards featuring works from different (and previously unreleased) mini series. the multiverse memory card sets consists of three original six by six centimetre ravensburger memory cards with the typical blue typography in rapport. while the sets will be offered as editions escorting the ‘needle in the multiverse’, you can purchase them for a moderate price. additionally postcards featuring different tableaus oft eh last years will be available as well.


kunstwerden offers a very interesting space to show work. actually it is fitting perfectly tot he complex show concept. we hope to offer a good documentation of teh show.

the kunstverein schollbrockhaus in herne has opened a group show entitled ‘fisch’ last saturday, october 10. next to paintings by marayle küpper and daniela werth the exhibition features the ‘la mer’ sound piece by sven piayda. the 2013 work will sound through the exhibition running until october 25. the show will be on for three weekends only. above you see the installation view at lutherturm in cologne for LTK4. have a look at the current installation by checking the exhibitions section.

more info can be found in the press release:
sechs künstlerinnen und künstler, drei wochenenden und ein thema: fisch. das schollbrockhaus zeigt vom 10.10–25.10.2020 sechs sehr unterschiedliche positionen, bei denen der betrachter das thema fisch mit allen sinnen in teilen sehr überraschend erfahren kann. in stein und holz gemeißelt von ingrid handzik, werden die formen, bewegungen von fisch und fischigem, wasser und sich in dem element bewegendem aufgegriffen und in eine eigene formensprache umgesetzt. in acryl auf großen leinwänden oder auf durchscheinenden acrylplatten in einer beweglichen rauminstallation, zeigt marayle küpper wie überraschend vielfältig die unterwasserwelt sein kann. büromaterial: eine schließe aus metall oder kunststoff, ein stückchen plastik, schwimmt in ein netz, der fisch ist eingefangen. außergewöhnliches material regt zu phantasievollen darstellungen an, die überraschen und eine ganz andere sicht auf den fisch ermöglichen. die soundinstallation von sven piayda basiert auf dem chanson la mer von charles trenet aus dem jahr 1946, welcher gestaucht und gedehnt geheimnisvoll durch die räumlichkeiten dringt. sie bildet den grundton, die alle werke im ton anschwellend verbindet. fein, sensibel, zart und im wasser schwebend, farbenvoll und dezent liegt der meeresbewohner im wasser, vergänglich und doch präsent, vergehend. in den ölbildern von wilfried weiß zeigt sich die tiefe der farbe. kraftvoll und nachdrücklich sind daniela werths fische, die sich morbid, aber mit dynamischer farbigkeit dem betrachter darbieten: als ästhetik im vergänglichen.


in the video documentary above you can get an impression of the 2014 piayda solo exhibition entitled 'show/time' at kunstverein bochumer kulturrat in bochum. the video featured works by sven piayda from 2009 to 2014 as curated by carsten roth. next to photography and video the installation 'la mer' sound was part of show. the video documents installation views of all exhibited works and you can listen to a snippet of ‘la mar’ as sounding through the rooms of the exhibition.


on friday, september 18 the curators maren ullrich and roger rohrbach opened the group show ‘we don´t pray for love – we just pray for cars’ at alter wartesaal im bahnhof herne. within this show a well-known work of sven piayda´s portfolio returned to display. the young curators ullrich and rohrbach have drafted a group show concept which will be on at kreativ.quartier wanne (hallenbad) and alter wartesaal im bahnhof herne. the alte wartesaal presents piayda´s ’happy prince’, a 2016 cgi-photography, which is one oft he works which had been in shows quite often, you can see piayda next to his work in his last solo show at SG1 duisburg back in 2019.

above you see a picture of ‘happy prince’ as installed at alter wartesaal herne for ‘we don´t pray for love – we just pray for cars’ as curated by maren ullrich and roger rohrbach. We look back to a great opening of a small but exquisite show in a historic place. have a look at all installation views taken during the opening over at the exhibitions section.

’happy prince’ shows the red car body of a 1989 ford probe hovering in dutch woods in autumn. art historian linda schröer states: the photograph ‘happy prince’ shows a car body floating in the middle of the forest. the title refers to the short story of the same name by oscar wilde. there, a richly gem- and gold-studded prince monument cannot bear the misery of his city any longer, allows itself to be ‘cannibalized’ down to the last treasure and thus sacrifices itself. at the same time, however, the title also alludes to the artist richard prince, who is known above all for his astronomical prizes. in the mid-2000s, prince had stripped muscle cars down or pasted them with images of women and staged the car as a symbol of freedom, self-determination and independence.

‘the press text for we don't pray for love - we just pray for cars‘ explains: more than 2,200 kilometres of motorway run through the state of north rhine-westphalia, with a total road length of almost 30,000 kilometres, making up about 13% of the total german road length. the average daily traffic in nrw is significantly higher than the national average. in short: the ruhr area as a conurbation is more mobile than ever. especially in times of climate change, however, individual transport should be critically examined, and its advantages and disadvantages weighed against each other. the role of the car as a status symbol should be questioned with a view to the future of all of us. faster, bigger, better - how heavy can and may such attributes weigh today? an exhibition of contemporary art from the ruhr, münsterland and rhineland on the subject of mobility and the car as a status symbol.




new album 'entertain' by primal scapes out october 30, 2020. written, performed and produced by michael schreiber featuring record of tides´ sven piayda and AESTATE´s chris huff.

we are happy to announce that the physical copies have arrived and will be definitely available by october 30. place your orders now via www.primal-scapes.de. signed copies are also believed to be around, don´t forget to ask for it! more soon!


michael schreiber states: from the first ideas in april the project has developed in the following months of song writing and recording. it didn't become a typical electronic album but rather a mix of electronic and organic elements. besides some personal leaning how nice this mixture can grow together, it has also provided further learning effects: if you put two things that are good on their own in one pot and just stir, it doesn't always taste good - but only if you simplify the original recipe. through the collaboration with sven piayda, chris huff and jan van aachen it has become a typical and equally untypical album for me - with an exciting colour. I am more than satisfied and excited with the result that it is finally finished.
as always, you can't count the hours that go into such a project, some tracks now carry the internal revision number 15, because they have struggled with their hands and feet to fit into the overall picture. also in this project I have learned a lot, especially the combination of electronic music with hand-played real instruments offers interesting ways to make the clear to cool electronic structures more organic.

2020-09-28 'la mer' to drone through kunstverein schollbrockhaus in herne
the kunstverein schollbrockhaus in herne will open a group show entitled ‘fisch’ on saturday, october 10, at 3 to 6pm. next to paintings by marayle küpper and daniela werth the exhibition will feature the ‘la mer’ sound piece by sven piayda. the 2013 work will sound through the exhibition running until october 25. above you see the installation view at lutherturm in cologne for LTK4.

piayda's sound installation ‘la mer’ (2013) is based on the famous french chanson ‘la mer’ by charles trenet from 1946, which also became famous in numerous cover versions and whose original version is one of the soundtracks of numerous feature films. piayda has abstracted the song into something informal, so to speak, by compressing it to two seconds and then stretching it to one hour, neither trenet's voice nor a word can be heard, but only texture remains [...].
carsten roth, m.a., kunstverein bochumer kulturrat


as the opening is scheduled for saturday afternoon, october, participating artists among piayda are expected to be present.
all info at the bottom of this post.


in the video documentary above you can get an impression of the 2014 piayda solo exhibition entitled 'show/time' at kunstverein bochumer kulturrat in bochum. the video featured works by sven piayda from 2009 to 2014 as curated by carsten roth. next to photography and video the installation 'la mer' sound was part of show. the video documents installation views of all exhibited works and you can listen to a snippet of ‘la mar’ as sounding through the rooms of the exhibition.


have a look at the official flyer listing all participation artists, also find the opening hours at weekends. the show will be on for three weekends only.

more info can be found in the press release:
sechs künstlerinnen und künstler, drei wochenenden und ein thema: fisch. das schollbrockhaus zeigt vom 10.10–25.10.2020 sechs sehr unterschiedliche positionen, bei denen der betrachter das thema fisch mit allen sinnen in teilen sehr überraschend erfahren kann. in stein und holz gemeißelt von ingrid handzik, werden die formen, bewegungen von fisch und fischigem, wasser und sich in dem element bewegendem aufgegriffen und in eine eigene formensprache umgesetzt. in acryl auf großen leinwänden oder auf durchscheinenden acrylplatten in einer beweglichen rauminstallation, zeigt marayle küpper wie überraschend vielfältig die unterwasserwelt sein kann. büromaterial: eine schließe aus metall oder kunststoff, ein stückchen plastik, schwimmt in ein netz, der fisch ist eingefangen. außergewöhnliches material regt zu phantasievollen darstellungen an, die überraschen und eine ganz andere sicht auf den fisch ermöglichen. die soundinstallation von sven piayda basiert auf dem chanson la mer von charles trenet aus dem jahr 1946, welcher gestaucht und gedehnt geheimnisvoll durch die räumlichkeiten dringt. sie bildet den grundton, die alle werke im ton anschwellend verbindet. fein, sensibel, zart und im wasser schwebend, farbenvoll und dezent liegt der meeresbewohner im wasser, vergänglich und doch präsent, vergehend. in den ölbildern von wilfried weiß zeigt sich die tiefe der farbe. kraftvoll und nachdrücklich sind daniela werths fische, die sich morbid, aber mit dynamischer farbigkeit dem betrachter darbieten: als ästhetik im vergänglichen.


on friday, september 18 the curators maren ullrich and roger rohrbach opened the group show ‘we don´t pray for love – we just pray for cars’ at alter wartesaal im bahnhof herne. within this show a well-known work of sven piayda´s portfolio returned to display. the young curators ullrich and rohrbach have drafted a group show concept which will be on at kreativ.quartier wanne (hallenbad) and alter wartesaal im bahnhof herne. the alte wartesaal presents piayda´s ’happy prince’, a 2016 cgi-photography, which is one oft he works which had been in shows quite often, you can see piayda next to his work in his last solo show at SG1 duisburg back in 2019.

above you see a picture of ‘happy prince’ as installed at alter wartesaal herne for ‘we don´t pray for love – we just pray for cars’ as curated by maren ullrich and roger rohrbach. We look back to a great opening of a small but exquisite show in a historic place. have a look at all installation views taken during the opening over at the exhibitions section.

’happy prince’ shows the red car body of a 1989 ford probe hovering in dutch woods in autumn. art historian linda schröer states: the photograph ‘happy prince’ shows a car body floating in the middle of the forest. the title refers to the short story of the same name by oscar wilde. there, a richly gem- and gold-studded prince monument cannot bear the misery of his city any longer, allows itself to be ‘cannibalized’ down to the last treasure and thus sacrifices itself. at the same time, however, the title also alludes to the artist richard prince, who is known above all for his astronomical prizes. in the mid-2000s, prince had stripped muscle cars down or pasted them with images of women and staged the car as a symbol of freedom, self-determination and independence.

‘the press text for we don't pray for love - we just pray for cars‘ explains: more than 2,200 kilometres of motorway run through the state of north rhine-westphalia, with a total road length of almost 30,000 kilometres, making up about 13% of the total german road length. the average daily traffic in nrw is significantly higher than the national average. in short: the ruhr area as a conurbation is more mobile than ever. especially in times of climate change, however, individual transport should be critically examined, and its advantages and disadvantages weighed against each other. the role of the car as a status symbol should be questioned with a view to the future of all of us. faster, bigger, better - how heavy can and may such attributes weigh today? an exhibition of contemporary art from the ruhr, münsterland and rhineland on the subject of mobility and the car as a status symbol.



update 2020-10-07: there are two great reasons to spend the autumn weekends in herne: sven piayda is contributing to two group shows presented in this city oft he ruhr area. ‘we don´t pray for love – we just pray for cars’ at alter wartesaal im bahnhof herne features ’happy prince’, a 2016 cgi-photography which finally back on display, while the kunstverein schollbrockhaus in herne shows a group show entitled ‘fisch’ featuring the ‘la mer’ sound piece. additionally you can still watch ‘aftermath’ over at the youtube site of the KURZstummfilmfestival.
the work will be available online until october 26.






this autumn we are celebrating the 21th anniversary of ‘portrait’. on september 25, 1999, zany music released sven piayda’s debut album on compact disc. the album was well appreciated and is a classic release today, also it was the first compact disc zany music put out after releasing different tapes in the years before. ‘portrait’ is based upon songs written in the years before, it was recorded in spring and summer 1999 at roberg records in gelsenkirchen by producer gerd bückins. all programming of midi and samples had been done by electronic producer thorsten ruby before. also the tracks became the base for the band ‘apologies’ which was founded as a classic rock trio back in 2000 to perform the songs live. without any gig but some open rehearsals the group split off in 2001, so piayda focussed on the follow up album ‘diptych’. nevertheless, after ‘apologies’ split of, piayda was looking for an audio-visual follow-up project of this band ending up with ‘timber’ by record of tides featuring artwork by ‘apologies’ drummer jay hammes.

'portrait' is still available as compact disc only, you can listen to 'a day at the sea (2005 remix)' and 'maisonette (short edit)' on this site.




we are surprised to read in a news post by PRIMAL SCAPES that AESTATE´s sven piayda as well as chris huff are performing on the upcoming album 'entertain'. the album is expected to be available as physical version this autumn. chris huff has not ben noticed with any musical activities aside from AESTATE who did their last release 'greatest hits' back in 2015. sven piayda is recently releasing solo work with record of tides on zany music.

most of the tracks are recorded - final and already mastered and last ideas are tested, a nice project with lots of fun is coming to an end. through the collaboration with sven piayda, chris huff and jan van aachen it has become a typical and equally untypical album for me - with an exciting colour. I am more than satisfied and excited with the result that it is finally finished. as always, you can't count the hours that go into such a project, some tracks now carry the internal revision number 15, because they have struggled with their hands and feet to fit into the overall picture. also in this project I have learned a lot, especially the combination of electronic music with hand-played real instruments offers interesting ways to make the clear to cool electronic structures more organic. slowly I am looking for a service provider for the production of the cd, and I think the release will be in october 2020.

update 2020-10-03: new album 'entertain' by primal scapes out october 30, 2020. written, performed and produced by michael schreiber featuring record of tides´ sven piayda and AESTATE´s chris huff.
watch and/or listen to 'humming project'.

more info: www.primal-scapes.de/news.php?news=8
www.primal-scapes.de


michael schreiber states: from the first ideas in april the project has developed in the following months of song writing and recording. it didn't become a typical electronic album but rather a mix of electronic and organic elements. besides some personal leaning how nice this mixture can grow together, it has also provided further learning effects: if you put two things that are good on their own in one pot and just stir, it doesn't always taste good - but only if you simplify the original recipe. through the collaboration with sven piayda, chris huff and jan van aachen it has become a typical and equally untypical album for me - with an exciting colour. I am more than satisfied and excited with the result that it is finally finished.

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)

please contact the studio for purchase.

studio.svenpiayda.com




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.

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.

2020-09-20 'aftermath' premieres at KURZstummfilmfestival
this year´s KURZstummfilmfestival will deal with number ‘5’ in all its contributions. the festival will also premieres sven piayda´s ‘aftermath’, a video project started back 2019 directly after announcing the new topic but without deciding if the piece will be published or not.

‘aftermath’ is drafted as a horror movie for elementary school students using post internet art aesthetics once again with music by record of tides. the heavy weight of bad grades (‘5’ is the second worst grade to get in germany) seems to reach into the peace of the summer break symbolizing the students resort. within the aftermaths the echo of not being good enough remains omnipresent. the short film is only five minutes long and features material taken back in 2004 as well as digital animation done in 2019.

the KURZstummfilmfestival will take place on september 26, 3pm at zeche carl in essen. caused by the corona crisis you have to register for participation as the maximum number of visitors is limited to 50 people. (please register here) additionally the festival will screen the contributions on youtube, starting with uploads in september 22 and having all videos available by september 25.

piayda is attending to the festival for the third time as chosen by the jury having shown ‘granada interface (the lost tapes)’ in 2019 and ‘die entdeckung europas’ in 2018.

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.

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.


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.

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.
also: ‘four seasons after arcimboldo’ have been part oft he show, they are now on display as postcard versions at galerie gublia in essen.

2020-09-03 'we don´t pray for love…' opens on september 18 in herne
on friday, september 18 at 7pm, the curators maren ullrich and roger rohrbach will open the group show ‘we don´t pray for love – we just pray for cars’ at alter wartesaal im bahnhof herne. within this show a well-known work of sven piayda´s portfolio will return to display. the young curators ullrich and rohrbach have drafted a group show concept which will be on at kreativ.quartier wanne (hallenbad) and alter wartesaal im bahnhof herne. the alte wartesaal will present piayda´s ’happy prince’, a 2016 cgi-photography, which is one oft he works which had been in shows quite often, you can see piayda next to his work in his last solo show at SG1 duisburg back in 2019.
participating artists are expected to be present.

’happy prince’ shows the red car body of a 1989 ford probe hovering in dutch woods in autumn. art historian linda schröer states: the photograph ‘happy prince’ shows a car body floating in the middle of the forest. the title refers to the short story of the same name by oscar wilde. there, a richly gem- and gold-studded prince monument cannot bear the misery of his city any longer, allows itself to be ‘cannibalized’ down to the last treasure and thus sacrifices itself. at the same time, however, the title also alludes to the artist richard prince, who is known above all for his astronomical prizes. in the mid-2000s, prince had stripped muscle cars down or pasted them with images of women and staged the car as a symbol of freedom, self-determination and independence.

‘the press text for we don't pray for love - we just pray for cars‘ explains: more than 2,200 kilometres of motorway run through the state of north rhine-westphalia, with a total road length of almost 30,000 kilometres, making up about 13% of the total german road length. the average daily traffic in nrw is significantly higher than the national average. in short: the ruhr area as a conurbation is more mobile than ever. especially in times of climate change, however, individual transport should be critically examined, and its advantages and disadvantages weighed against each other. the role of the car as a status symbol should be questioned with a view to the future of all of us. faster, bigger, better - how heavy can and may such attributes weigh today? an exhibition of contemporary art from the ruhr, münsterland and rhineland on the subject of mobility and the car as a status symbol.


you might like to have a look at the poster and invitation card for information on participating artists and opening hours.
caused by the covid-19 situation there will be time slots to enter and stay in the exhibition, please apologise.

the opening is scheduled for september 18, sven piayda is expected to be present. more info at the bottom of this post.


you might remember roger rohrbach´s name from the catalogue escorting last year´s annual show of gelenkirchen based artists. here he wrote a pretty complex text on the exhibited video piece 'heliodorus'.


the kunstverein schollbrockhaus in herne will open a group show entitled ‘fisch!’ on saturday, october 10, at 3 to 6pm. next to paintings by marayle küpper and daniela werth the exhibition will feature the ‘la mer’ sound piece by sven piayda. the 2013 work will sound through the exhibition running until october 25. above you see the installation view at lutherturm in cologne for LTK4. more info soon.




it is our massive pleasure to announce an upcoming record of tides live performance. the ‘feuer and flamme’ festival will place art and music in a dedicated church for four days. it was originally planned to take place during the pentecost season but had to be delayed due the covid-19 pandemic. within this festival record of tides will perform a compact live set on tuesday, november 3, 7pm. up to current information the set is expected to be audio only, changes and updates will be communicated here. this will definitely the last performance for 2020, based upon the developing of the covid-19 community spreading the festival might modify of cancel schedules.

the well appreciated ‘ansehBar’ art show in public space has taken sven piayda´s ‘lifeguard’ off display now. as the show starts into its second month, further artists will take over and the current works vanish. ‘lifeguard’ is demounted and replaced by a work by one of the artists of the second run. still we do not know who will get this prominent place.
sven piayda´s contribution ‘lifeguard’ was placed at a prominent position. the billboard could be found at augustastraße/weberstaße in downtown gelsenkirchen. the piece incidentally interacted and mirrored its surrounding: the trees in the picture seemed grow into the trees on the street, the ‘lifeguard’ surrogate had the same colour as the nearby trash bin and the pillars of the lifeguard´s housing corresponded with the billboard´s pillars. the places had been chosen incidentally but sven piayda and everyone at the studio were very happy with this place. find all collected pictures of the work and the press conference over at the exhibitions section.

above you see a snapshot taken during the art walk with gelsenkirchen major candidate karin welge (spd) with piayda on the left talking about the piece.

based upon the problematic issue of impossible big openings and the loss of opportunity for artists to show and sell work the gelsenkirchen based szeniale organisation developed 'ansehBar' as answer to the covid-19 crisis, a billboard based outside exhibition project curated by nancy e. watt and christoph lammert.

with this action we don't just want to bring beautiful colourful pictures into the city. it is above all about strengthening and sharpening the perception. if art and culture cannot be present in public space to the usual extent, or if no (regular) form of organizing presentation is possible, it is necessary to fill and enliven this space in a different way. art and culture are vital, they are building blocks of a successful society, signs of democratic coexistence and - under all circumstances - to make them visible in public space, the curators state.

'ansehBar' wants to make art in times of distance rules experienceable in an unusual way: wherever else advertising can be seen, artistic works will be shown from july to september 2020. in cooperation with the department of culture of the city of gelsenkirchen, the förderverein szeniale invites up to 30 artists from the gelsenkirchen independent scene to present themselves publicly and strikingly in the urban space. for this purpose, the media company ströer (initially) 15 large-format billboards will be made available free of charge.

the posters form a gallery in public space which, as a satellite project of the festival 'szeniale', brings art and culture from different fields into the urban space: in addition to works from painting, photography and graphics, positions from film, music, theatre, dance and literature can also be creatively transferred to the poster format. the immediate experience is supplemented by digital information that can be called up on each poster with a smartphone via a qr code. a map helps those interested to find their own way through this open-air exhibition on foot or by bicycle.


for the 'ansehBar' group show, sven piayda´s 'lifeguard' (2018) had been chosen to be presented on one of the 2.50 by 3.60 meter billboards in the first part of the show running from july 10 to august 10. the escorting text statesas following:
the life belt is missing in its station in the immediate vicinity of the lake. instead, an idiosyncratically shaped substitute hangs in its place, which cannot replace the ring in its function, but which becomes the new motif in the picture. typical for piayda's work are tableaus, mostly photographs of rather unspecific places, usually arranged as landscapes, to which an object was added as a motif in post-production. the work for 'ansehBar' aims to add something beautiful and worth seeing to the urban space, similar to the abstract objects in the photographs.




even if the show is not over yet, sven piayda´s part and the studio´s participation has ended. so we would like to thank nancy watt and christoph lammert for creating and curating the project, annette berg and andrea lamest for supporting and financing the project via municipal funds and everyone at ströer for making it possible to use the billboards. also we would like to thank all the photographers for this project like michaela best, havva ayvalik, petra dreiling-schewe, ilsebill eckle, christoph lammert, julian mikus and the studio. if you have delivered pictures without being credited (or find your work captured without credit) please let us know.

the studio is moving to the next project, but we hope to collaborate with this team in the future again.

update 2020-08-17: the ‘lifeguard’ photo has already vanished on the billboard at augustastraße in gelsenkirchen as it has been pasted over as scheduled with a work by claudia tebben. it is strange for us to see a new work at this prominent place but something remains: it take a closer look you can still see ‘lifeguard’ peek through at the edges of the poster panels. however, enjoy the new works and be excited for further documentations and future projects.




a short introduction guide to get into the art of sven piayda regarding works in disciplines of photography, video and sound. featuring text by curators, dealers and assistants. don´t miss: the updated 2020 press kit! (this year´s portfolio update is supposed to come up soon!)

the studio has started to work on a large video project combining an endless but non-looping sequence and degas´ 'little dancer'. more in the journal, updated to be announced asap.

caused by the aftermath of the lockdown situation, there is no open exhibition on display featuring work by sven piayda (with the exception of the permanent exhibition at galerie treppenhaus and the guest participation at edel extra in nuremberg). all scheduled shows had been postponed or were cancelled. also there are no live dates or dj sets scheduled to take place recently. the studio has used the lockdown situation to work on an exhibition project escorted by a vinyl release merging concepts of experiencing and collecting art and music: aural park.

today sven piayda and the studio in cooperation with zany music reveal a new summer project being a mixture of exhibition and listening event. within the aural park project piayda presents some of his recent sound works as well as exclusively produced versions of record of tides tracks in 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.


to start the project the four exclusive versions from tracks originally found on the 2017 record of tides album ‘solna’ are released today on zany music and are available on transparent vinyl as limited edition only. the vinyl comes with additional transparent sleeve with record of tides logo sticker. as the release is limited to 100 copies only, there are less than hundred copies available. as there have been numerous pre-orders, the 12’’ is sold out today on the day of release. in case of being interested in purchasing a copy anyway, make sure to contact the studio to be registered for a reissue of the album.
escorting the vinyl ep, record of tides ‘aural park’ is also available as mp3 bundle with compact disc sized and edited artwork. the digital version is available via /CAMP, a password protected area only open to customer having purchased the vinyl or any other sven piayda related content.
the vinyl purchase also enables to customers to receive the AP ADDS mp3 bundle, a three-track-60-minute hdj set featuring tracks of inspiring artists.


we are recieving a lot of positive feedback concerning the artwork for 'aural park' vinyl EP and decoding attepts concerning the sleeve design. the variation of the motorway sign is a clear reference to kraftwerk´s 'autobahn' while the kids chasing after a deer reminds of visual achetypes found in boards of canada artwork. however, all of your feedback is appreciated and it might be a true indicator for good design that we see and feel similar things while looking at it. let´s see what the next cover will be all about...

please check the discography for tracklist.

to participate in aural park listening events (announced only a few days in advance caused by dependence on the weather) please check the project site and confirm your participation reliably via facebook events.

2020-08-27 'happy prince' returns to display for car-based group show
for the autumn season a well-known work of sven piayda´s portfolio will return to display. the young curators maren ullrich and roger rohrbach have drafted a group show concept which will be on at kreativ.quartier wanne (hallenbad) and alter wartesaal im bahnhof herne. the alte wartesaal will present piayda´s ’happy prince’, a 2016 cgi-photography, which is one oft he works which had been in shows quite often, you can see piayda next to his work in a show at kunstmuseum mülheim back in 2017.

’happy prince’ shows the red car body of a 1989 ford probe hovering in dutch woods in autumn. art historian linda schröer states: the photograph ‘happy prince’ shows a car body floating in the middle of the forest. the title refers to the short story of the same name by oscar wilde. there, a richly gem- and gold-studded prince monument cannot bear the misery of his city any longer, allows itself to be ‘cannibalized’ down to the last treasure and thus sacrifices itself. at the same time, however, the title also alludes to the artist richard prince, who is known above all for his astronomical prizes. in the mid-2000s, prince had stripped muscle cars down or pasted them with images of women and staged the car as a symbol of freedom, self-determination and independence.

you might remember roger rohrbach´s name from the catalogue escorting last year´s annual show of gelenkirchen based artists. here he wrote a pretty complex text on the exhibited video piece 'heliodorus'.


back in june our friend and collaborator karla köhler opened her 2020 covid-19 crisis postponed solo show at edel extra in nürnberg. the show featured next to numerous pieces the collaborative work ‘granada interface (the lost tapes)’, a video for record of tides directed by sven piayda exploring köhler´s urban world designs. now you will have the change to visit the show virtually again, guided by karla köhler herself. you may also like the record of tides track sounding through the exhibition as endless loop. the documentary has been shot by alex ciocea using a 360° camera delivering a wide-angle view on the exhibition. additionally, köhler and piayda are recently discussing new collaborative works.


the well appreciated ‘ansehBar’ art show in public space has taken sven piayda´s ‘lifeguard’ off display now. as the show starts into its second month, further artists will take over and the current works vanish. ‘lifeguard’ is demounted and replaced by a work by one of the artists of the second run. still we do not know who will get this prominent place.

based upon the problematic issue of impossible big openings and the loss of opportunity for artists to show and sell work the gelsenkirchen based szeniale organisation developed 'ansehBar' as answer to the covid-19 crisis, a billboard based outside exhibition project curated by nancy e. watt and christoph lammert.

'ansehBar' wants to make art in times of distance rules experienceable in an unusual way: wherever else advertising can be seen, artistic works will be shown from july to september 2020. in cooperation with the department of culture of the city of gelsenkirchen, the förderverein szeniale invites up to 30 artists from the gelsenkirchen independent scene to present themselves publicly and strikingly in the urban space. for this purpose, the media company ströer (initially) 15 large-format billboards will be made available free of charge.

the posters form a gallery in public space which, as a satellite project of the festival 'szeniale', brings art and culture from different fields into the urban space: in addition to works from painting, photography and graphics, positions from film, music, theatre, dance and literature can also be creatively transferred to the poster format. the immediate experience is supplemented by digital information that can be called up on each poster with a smartphone via a qr code. a map helps those interested to find their own way through this open-air exhibition on foot or by bicycle.


for the 'ansehBar' group show, sven piayda´s 'lifeguard' (2018) had been chosen to be presented on one of the 2.50 by 3.60 meter billboards in the first part of the show running from july 10 to august 10. the escorting text statesas following:
the life belt is missing in its station in the immediate vicinity of the lake. instead, an idiosyncratically shaped substitute hangs in its place, which cannot replace the ring in its function, but which becomes the new motif in the picture. typical for piayda's work are tableaus, mostly photographs of rather unspecific places, usually arranged as landscapes, to which an object was added as a motif in post-production. the work for 'ansehBar' aims to add something beautiful and worth seeing to the urban space, similar to the abstract objects in the photographs.




even if the show is not over yet, sven piayda´s part and the studio´s participation has ended. so we would like to thank nancy watt and christoph lammert for creating and curating the project, annette berg and andrea lamest for supporting and financing the project via municipal funds and everyone at ströer for making it possible to use the billboards. also we would like to thank all the photographers for this project like michaela best, havva ayvalik, petra dreiling-schewe, ilsebill eckle, christoph lammert, julian mikus and the studio. if you have delivered pictures without being credited (or find your work captured without credit) please let us know.

the studio is moving to the next project, but we hope to collaborate with this team in the future again.

update 2020-08-17: the ‘lifeguard’ photo has already vanished on the billboard at augustastraße in gelsenkirchen as it has been pasted over as scheduled with a work by claudia tebben. it is strange for us to see a new work at this prominent place but something remains: it take a closer look you can still see ‘lifeguard’ peek through at the edges of the poster panels. however, enjoy the new works and be excited for further documentations and future projects.




a short introduction guide to get into the art of sven piayda regarding works in disciplines of photography, video and sound. featuring text by curators, dealers and assistants. don´t miss: the updated 2020 press kit! (this year´s portfolio update is supposed to come up soon!)

sven piayda press kit



the studio has started to work on a large video project combining an endless but non-looping sequence and degas´ 'little dancer'. more in the journal, updated to be announced asap.

studio.svenpiayda.com



caused by the aftermath of the lockdown situation, there is no open exhibition on display featuring work by sven piayda (with the exception of the permanent exhibition at galerie treppenhaus and the guest participation at edel extra in nuremberg). all scheduled shows had been postponed or were cancelled. also there are no live dates or dj sets scheduled to take place recently. the studio has used the lockdown situation to work on an exhibition project escorted by a vinyl release merging concepts of experiencing and collecting art and music: aural park.

today sven piayda and the studio in cooperation with zany music reveal a new summer project being a mixture of exhibition and listening event. within the aural park project piayda presents some of his recent sound works as well as exclusively produced versions of record of tides tracks in 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.


to start the project the four exclusive versions from tracks originally found on the 2017 record of tides album ‘solna’ are released today on zany music and are available on transparent vinyl as limited edition only. the vinyl comes with additional transparent sleeve with record of tides logo sticker. as the release is limited to 100 copies only, there are less than hundred copies available. as there have been numerous pre-orders, the 12’’ is sold out today on the day of release. in case of being interested in purchasing a copy anyway, make sure to contact the studio to be registered for a reissue of the album.
escorting the vinyl ep, record of tides ‘aural park’ is also available as mp3 bundle with compact disc sized and edited artwork. the digital version is available via /CAMP, a password protected area only open to customer having purchased the vinyl or any other sven piayda related content.
the vinyl purchase also enables to customers to receive the AP ADDS mp3 bundle, a three-track-60-minute hdj set featuring tracks of inspiring artists.


we are recieving a lot of positive feedback concerning the artwork for 'aural park' vinyl EP and decoding attepts concerning the sleeve design. the variation of the motorway sign is a clear reference to kraftwerk´s 'autobahn' while the kids chasing after a deer reminds of visual achetypes found in boards of canada artwork. however, all of your feedback is appreciated and it might be a true indicator for good design that we see and feel similar things while looking at it. let´s see what the next cover will be all about...

please check the discography for tracklist.

to participate in aural park listening events (announced only a few days in advance caused by dependence on the weather) please check the project site and confirm your participation reliably via facebook events.

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)

please contact the studio for purchase.

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.

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.

galerie-treppenhaus.de



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.
also: ‘four seasons after arcimboldo’ have been part oft he show, they are now on display as postcard versions at galerie gublia in essen.

2020-08-10 'lifeguard' disappears, ansehBar exhibition continues
the well appreciated ‘ansehBar’ art show in public space has taken sven piayda´s ‘lifeguard’ off display now. as the show starts into its second month, further artists will take over and the current works vanish. ‘lifeguard’ is demounted and replaced by a work by one of the artists of the second run. still we do not know who will get this prominent place.
sven piayda´s contribution ‘lifeguard’ was placed at a prominent position. the billboard could be found at augustastraße/weberstaße in downtown gelsenkirchen. the piece incidentally interacted and mirrored its surrounding: the trees in the picture seemed grow into the trees on the street, the ‘lifeguard’ surrogate had the same colour as the nearby trash bin and the pillars of the lifeguard´s housing corresponded with the billboard´s pillars. the places had been chosen incidentally but sven piayda and everyone at the studio were very happy with this place. find all collected pictures of the work and the press conference over at the exhibitions section.

above you see a snapshot taken during the art walk with gelsenkirchen major candidate karin welge (spd) with piayda on the left talking about the piece.

based upon the problematic issue of impossible big openings and the loss of opportunity for artists to show and sell work the gelsenkirchen based szeniale organisation developed 'ansehBar' as answer to the covid-19 crisis, a billboard based outside exhibition project curated by nancy e. watt and christoph lammert.

update 2020-08-17: the lockdown/quarantine situation made live events impossible for the last months. record of tides did the last av live performance on february 8,2020 at medienbunker duisburg. in the journal piayda announced being pretty unhappy with the performance and announced to figure out ‘which context could be suitable and how I can turn it into what I want it to be’ (2020-01-30 beyond the visible: genius in context | entry by sven, update 2020-03-07). there haven´t been live activities since, but a live bootleg of the reconstructed performance was discussed. now there are rumours of an upcoming performance even in 2020. we hope to deliver more info soon.

2020-08-03 svennet 20 years anniversary
this august we are happy to celebrate 20 years of svennet. back in august 2000 svennet was launched to advertise the 1999 album ‘portrait’ and to document the attempts to play the album live and to produce a follow up. back in 2000 (in the wild days of the internet) the site was hosted on a tripod members server without any domain but lots of commercial banners. a few days later the site was available via www.svennet.20m.com, a domain which was also financed via commercial banners and is surprisingly still working today. in may 2002 the site moved to www.svenpiayda.com to skip the banners and offer a domain. after many design changes the site found it´s design as it is on more or less today in 2011.

svennet focussed on news related to sven piayda, art show documentation as well as a completely listed discography and further resources. in october 2003 the journal, a personal blog was added, at this time inspired by (mostly unused blogs) on sites of david bowie and beck hanson. even after being requested to use wordpress sites frequently svennet is supposed to stay simple html for good reasons.

as you read in the svennet piayda biography: the official site svenpiayda.com/svennet became an important basement of his work, it features information and downloads, up-to-date news and a blogesque journal. svenpiayda.com also features the complete and growing portfolio as well as exclusive material and previews via /CAMP.

within the last 20 years we have announced and documented a lot, more or less relevant topics, great and overrated artworks, music which became classic or quickly forgotten. the team has changed over the years and there have often been ideas to reduce the website´s output and text quantity or even to close it down. however, it must have been better to simply go on.

above you see sven piayda as photographed by stephanie holl for the inlay artwork of the ‘portrait’ album. as digital photography was not common in 1999, there are not as many pictures as today. this one illustrated the spirit of that time and how much time has passed.

let´s see what´s up in the next 20 years! feel free to follow and to participate. cheers!


the well appreciated ‘ansehBar’ art show in public space will have sven piayda´s ‘lifeguard’ on display for the last week now. as the show will start into its second month, further artists will take over and the current works will vanish. ‘lifeguard’ will be demounted and replaced by a work by one of the artists of the second run. still we do not know who will get this prominent place.

based upon the problematic issue of impossible big openings and the loss of opportunity for artists to show and sell work the gelsenkirchen based szeniale organisation developed 'ansehBar' as answer to the covid-19 crisis, a billboard based outside exhibition project curated by nancy e. watt and christoph lammert.

with this action we don't just want to bring beautiful colourful pictures into the city. it is above all about strengthening and sharpening the perception. if art and culture cannot be present in public space to the usual extent, or if no (regular) form of organizing presentation is possible, it is necessary to fill and enliven this space in a different way. art and culture are vital, they are building blocks of a successful society, signs of democratic coexistence and - under all circumstances - to make them visible in public space, the curators state.

'ansehBar' wants to make art in times of distance rules experienceable in an unusual way: wherever else advertising can be seen, artistic works will be shown from july to september 2020. in cooperation with the department of culture of the city of gelsenkirchen, the förderverein szeniale invites up to 30 artists from the gelsenkirchen independent scene to present themselves publicly and strikingly in the urban space. for this purpose, the media company ströer (initially) 15 large-format billboards will be made available free of charge.

the posters form a gallery in public space which, as a satellite project of the festival 'szeniale', brings art and culture from different fields into the urban space: in addition to works from painting, photography and graphics, positions from film, music, theatre, dance and literature can also be creatively transferred to the poster format. the immediate experience is supplemented by digital information that can be called up on each poster with a smartphone via a qr code. a map helps those interested to find their own way through this open-air exhibition on foot or by bicycle.


for the 'ansehBar' group show, sven piayda´s 'lifeguard' (2018) had been chosen to be presented on one of the 2.50 by 3.60 meter billboards in the first part of the show running from july 10 to august 10. the escorting text statesas following:
the life belt is missing in its station in the immediate vicinity of the lake. instead, an idiosyncratically shaped substitute hangs in its place, which cannot replace the ring in its function, but which becomes the new motif in the picture. typical for piayda's work are tableaus, mostly photographs of rather unspecific places, usually arranged as landscapes, to which an object was added as a motif in post-production. the work for 'ansehBar' aims to add something beautiful and worth seeing to the urban space, similar to the abstract objects in the photographs.

sven piayda´s contribution ‘lifeguard’ is placed at a prominent position. the billboard can be found at augustastraße/weberstaße in downtown gelsenkirchen. the piece incidentally interacts and mirrors its surrounding: the trees in the picture seem grow into the trees on the street, the ‘lifeguard’ surrogate has the same colour as the nearby trash bin and the pillars of the lifeguard´s housing correspond with the billboard´s pillars. the places have been chosen incidentally but we can be very happy with this place. you are welcome to visit the billboard and post pictures of it. find all collected pictures of the work and the press conference over at the exhibitions section.



caused by the aftermath of the lockdown situation, there is no open exhibition on display featuring work by sven piayda (with the exception of the permanent exhibition at galerie treppenhaus and the guest participation at edel extra in nuremberg). all scheduled shows had been postponed or were cancelled. also there are no live dates or dj sets scheduled to take place recently. the studio has used the lockdown situation to work on an exhibition project escorted by a vinyl release merging concepts of experiencing and collecting art and music: aural park.

today sven piayda and the studio in cooperation with zany music reveal a new summer project being a mixture of exhibition and listening event. within the aural park project piayda presents some of his recent sound works as well as exclusively produced versions of record of tides tracks in 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.


to start the project the four exclusive versions from tracks originally found on the 2017 record of tides album ‘solna’ are released today on zany music and are available on transparent vinyl as limited edition only. the vinyl comes with additional transparent sleeve with record of tides logo sticker. as the release is limited to 100 copies only, there are less than hundred copies available. as there have been numerous pre-orders, the 12’’ is sold out today on the day of release. in case of being interested in purchasing a copy anyway, make sure to contact the studio to be registered for a reissue of the album.
escorting the vinyl ep, record of tides ‘aural park’ is also available as mp3 bundle with compact disc sized and edited artwork. the digital version is available via /CAMP, a password protected area only open to customer having purchased the vinyl or any other sven piayda related content.
the vinyl purchase also enables to customers to receive the AP ADDS mp3 bundle, a three-track-60-minute hdj set featuring tracks of inspiring artists.


we are recieving a lot of positive feedback concerning the artwork for 'aural park' vinyl EP and decoding attepts concerning the sleeve design. the variation of the motorway sign is a clear reference to kraftwerk´s 'autobahn' while the kids chasing after a deer reminds of visual achetypes found in boards of canada artwork. however, all of your feedback is appreciated and it might be a true indicator for good design that we see and feel similar things while looking at it. let´s see what the next cover will be all about...

please check the discography for tracklist.

as you might know, michael schreiber and sven piayda have been collaborating for the well appreciated album ‘altered stems’ and have been discussing further collaborations since. next to music production it is remarkable that schreiber is also a trained code programmer who has already created code for well-known artists and is now collaborating with the studio for generative image production. they have already finished a mini series wich remains unreleased but have also created series of posters escorting the 'aural park' project.

also they are recently working in studio together for new music. piayda has already announced to not put out any more music in 2020, so it is believed that they are working on material for schreiber´s project. more soon!


the common recording sessions appear to be a lot more ambitioned than expected. up to now it is believed that the material will be released in autumn with a yet unknown project name. also there are rumours that AESTATE´s chris huff has shown up in studio to contribute bass guitar parts for certain songs. something is coming up. please be patient and stay excited!

michael wrote in advance of the recording: I am very excited to try new things and work on new material together with sven. think I have to check if there is a red carpet anywhere so I can roll it out in front of the studio.
a little later this ‘preview’ was found online, once again with a comment from michael: a track preview on the upcoming album ‘entertain’ - in case in plan will be released in 2020. the track was done in a single recording session in another collaboration with record of tides and as always has been a pleased in co-working with high output. background of the track: one of my customers is running a real ‘heavy metal’ business and the machine park and industrial space is really impressive.




update 2020-08-05: current text fom the studio:
The sun shines into empty classrooms; this must be the summer break at elementary school. Strangely misfit animated numbers – ‘fives’ only – float trough the air. In Germany ‘5’ is the second worst grade to get, so are grades a proof for a bad time in school echoing into free summer days? Is it a symbol for virus particles entering the classroom forcing kids into distanced learning? Is the virus threatening tomorrow’s grades? Or is the educational system the problem? ‘Aftermath’ by Sven Piayda is a horror movie for elementary school students using post Internet art aesthetics and music by Record Of Tides. The short film features material taken back in 2004 as well as digital animation done in 2019.

update 2020-07-27: sven piayda has returned to 'natürliche ausrede' podcast for episode 030. as this episode is supposed to be the end of the first season, podcast host chris braucks and sven piayda change roles, the focus is on braucks this time while piayda acts as host. therefore the episode is called 'selfie mit sven'. chris braucks adds in is escorting text:
the guest of this episode is a returner. on may 18th sven piayda was already here to talk about his art. at that time the idea was born to turn it the other way around and ask questions himself. a fitting idea for the end of season. the podcast will take a break over august. sven should have his own podcast anyway.


the podcast is available on common platforms and can be found directly over at skeleton-crew.de/na030. you will find all episodes of ‘natürliche ausrede’ over at skeleton-crew.de/na and anchor.fm/natuerlicheausrede.
the first episode with piayda can be found over at skeleton-crew.de/na017, see below.


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.


as promised, episode 017 is now also available via youtube and can be listened to and shared by the video player above.
also you can listen to the episodes on youtube.


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)

please contact the studio for purchase.
facebook.com/svenpiaydastudio
studio.svenpiayda.com




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.

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.


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.

galerie-treppenhaus.de



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.
also: ‘four seasons after arcimboldo’ have been part oft he show, they are now on display as postcard versions at galerie gublia in essen.

2020-07-13 work on display: 'lifeguard' & 'future perfect (lvb#10)'
based upon the problematic issue of impossible big openings and the loss of opportunity for artists to show and sell work the gelsenkirchen based szeniale organisation developed 'ansehBar' as answer to the covid-19 crisis, a billboard based outside exhibition project curated by nancy e. watt and christoph lammert.

with this action we don't just want to bring beautiful colourful pictures into the city. it is above all about strengthening and sharpening the perception. if art and culture cannot be present in public space to the usual extent, or if no (regular) form of organizing presentation is possible, it is necessary to fill and enliven this space in a different way. art and culture are vital, they are building blocks of a successful society, signs of democratic coexistence and - under all circumstances - to make them visible in public space, the curators state.

'ansehBar' wants to make art in times of distance rules experienceable in an unusual way: wherever else advertising can be seen, artistic works will be shown from july to september 2020. in cooperation with the department of culture of the city of gelsenkirchen, the förderverein szeniale invites up to 30 artists from the gelsenkirchen independent scene to present themselves publicly and strikingly in the urban space. for this purpose, the media company ströer (initially) 15 large-format billboards will be made available free of charge.

the posters form a gallery in public space which, as a satellite project of the festival 'szeniale', brings art and culture from different fields into the urban space: in addition to works from painting, photography and graphics, positions from film, music, theatre, dance and literature can also be creatively transferred to the poster format. the immediate experience is supplemented by digital information that can be called up on each poster with a smartphone via a qr code. a map helps those interested to find their own way through this open-air exhibition on foot or by bicycle.


for the 'ansehBar' group show, sven piayda´s 'lifeguard' (2018) had been chosen to be presented on one of the 2.50 by 3.60 meter billboards in the first part of the show running from july 10 to august 10. the escorting text statesas following:
the life belt is missing in its station in the immediate vicinity of the lake. instead, an idiosyncratically shaped substitute hangs in its place, which cannot replace the ring in its function, but which becomes the new motif in the picture. typical for piayda's work are tableaus, mostly photographs of rather unspecific places, usually arranged as landscapes, to which an object was added as a motif in post-production. the work for 'ansehBar' aims to add something beautiful and worth seeing to the urban space, similar to the abstract objects in the photographs.

sven piayda´s contribution ‘lifeguard’ is placed at a prominent position. the billboard can be found at augustastraße/weberstaße in downtown gelsenkirchen. the piece incidentally interacts and mirrors its surrounding: the trees in the picture seem grow into the trees on the street, the ‘lifeguard’ surrogate has the same colour as the nearby trash bin and the pillars of the lifeguard´s housing correspond with the billboard´s pillars. the places have been chosen incidentally but we can be very happy with this place. you are welcome to visit the billboard and post pictures of it. find all collected pictures of the work and the press conference over at the exhibitions section.


we have already found some pictures on instagram and facebook of the perfectly installed piece. we are happy to see that people are experiencing art outside and that the piece is actually adding something to the place. once again: all pictures of the work are welcome, feel free to photograph, post and send your shot.


above you see the two curators and artists christoph lammert and nancy watt after the press conference as photographed by participation artists havva ayvalik. further documentaries at the exhibitions section.


update 2020-07-20: the szeniale organisation has scheduled a walk along the billboards placed downtown with major candidate karin welge (spd), sven piayda is believed to participate. the walk will start around 9.30 am in downtown gelsenkirchen, you might like to join for taking pictures and/or get in contact with participating artists. we are curious for the press echo and are interested in getting in touch with the (probably) future major.


update 2020-07-24: for yesterday the szeniale team organized an art walk along the billboards in gelsenkirchen downtown. the walk featured the curators nancy watt and christoph lammert alongside with participating artists like roman pilgrim and sven piayda, above to see in conversation with also participating major candidate karin welge (spd). you can see more pictures of the walk in the exhibitions section. the szeniale has also scheduled another art walk with the major candidate from the green party for saturday, see facebook event. we hope that future politicians in charge will take the szeniale organization seriously and support their actions which already had a great and positive effect on the cultural scene, the city and it´s residents.


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 is 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)' is exhibited in the group show.

last sunday the ruhr gallery opened the third and last part of the beethoven based group show ‘schöner!’ as curated by klaus wiesel. the opening was well attended while taking care of current rules concerning distance and mask. sven piayda´s ‘future perfect (lvb#10)’ as presented as one-sided transparent vinly edition was played numerous times on an old automatic dual record player. the work gained great feedback and enjoyable until august 2. the piece is available in an edition of three, please contact the studio for purchasing info. documentaries at the exhibitions section.

the show opening originally 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 covid-19 virus. the group show returns now in slightly different shape:
to reduce the number of actually shown pieces with the given space while presenting all announced works curator klaus wiesel has split the show into three parts. 'future perfect (lvb#10)' is now exhibited within part 3 opening on sunday, july 12, at 4 pm. contradicting differently shared information the piece will be presented as one sided transparent vinyl record which is titled, signed, numbered and dated on the back and is ready to be played on demand. it will be available in an edition of 3 and is also supposed to be presented by the vinyl lounge and probably further art dealers. the piece is available for purchase, please contact the gallery or studio for information. even if differently announced in the media, the piece ‘be sure to wear flowers in your hair’ will not be part of the show, it may return to the gallery as part of the ‘ruhr trilogy’ in different context.

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. this 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.

’SCHÖNER! Pt 3’ also has a top-class cast. the participating artists are: Christoph Brée, Marion Callies, Jutta Dammers-Plaßmann (master student of Markus Lüpertz), Beate Fortmann, Janina Funken, Nikolaus Gasser (1937 - 2013), Sabine Geiger-Brée, Klaus Jost, Bernward Kraft, Ruth Kretzmann (winner of the 7th artists' prize of revierkunst 2018), Claus Peter Laube, Sven Piayda (ruhr prize winner of the city of mülheim an der ruhr 2016), the seven-year-old Viktoria Isabella with her first work, Ali Yadegar-Youssefi (former rector of the university of fine arts in tehran), Cornelia Wissel and Klaus Wiesel. the düsseldorf artists Tilch Hagemann, Lutz Lange and Bernadett Wiethoff and the artist Chinmayo, who has been artistically active in duisburg for more than 50 years, will also be present.

alexander franz and piayda have considered further sound works for 2021 dealing with joseph beuys. ways of playing the piece will be discussed, also a release of the ruhr trilogy (san francisco/beethoven/beuys) is recently discussed in studio.

also they are recently working in studio together for new music. piayda has already announced to not put out any more music in 2020, so it is believed that they are working on material for schreiber´s project ‘all notes off’. more soon!

update 2020-07-20:
michael wrote in advance of the recording: I am very excited to try new things and work on new material together with sven. think I have to check if there is a red carpet anywhere so I can roll it out in front of the studio.
a little later this ‘preview’ was found online, once again with a comment from michael: a track preview on the upcoming album ‘entertain’ - in case in plan will be released in 2020. the track was done in a single recording session in another collaboration with record of tides and as always has been a pleased in co-working with high output. background of the track: one of my customers is running a real ‘heavy metal’ business and the machine park and industrial space is really impressive.

the 'aural park' vinyl ep has received great feedback, not just for the music but also for the great artwork made for this format. unfortunately, there have not been any listening events so far caused by bad weather and schedule difficulties. so we are very happy to tell you that sven piayda studio has been working in collaboration with programmer michael schreiber on an 'aural park' fine art print poster edition series. there are four posters available, sized 75 by 50 cm, ready to order from the aural park microsite or at listening events. as the vinyl ep is sold out we also expect the posters to be sold out soon. please note: purchasing an aural park poster designed by michael schreiber and sven piayda also enables access to /CAMP and the ‘aural park’ ep as mp3 & jpg bundle.

update 2020-07-24: caused by the constantly changing weather situation and strict restrictions in public parks the ‘aural park’ project ends without any public listening event. there have been test events by the team in spring, but it was not possible to schedule an event within the announced timespan. we hope to bring back the event next summer, the studio is considering changes like an open call to feature further artists working with sound.
the ‘aural park’ vinyl edition has sold out quickly. as zany music considers to put out more music on vinyl there might be a second run of the ‘aural park’ vinyl next year. if you are interested, please contact studio[at]svenpiayda.com, so we can put your name on the list (and will not give your data to anyone else.) the ep is also available via /CAMP. by purchasing the vinyl, poster or any other product you will get full access to music, videos and texts featured in the /CAMP.




update 2020-07-27: sven piayda has returned to 'natürliche ausrede' podcast for episode 030. as this episode is supposed to be the end of the first season, podcast host chris braucks and sven piayda change roles, the focus is on braucks this time while piayda acts as host. therefore the episode is called 'selfie mit sven'. chris braucks adds in is escorting text:
the guest of this episode is a returner. on may 18th sven piayda was already here to talk about his art. at that time the idea was born to turn it the other way around and ask questions himself. a fitting idea for the end of season. the podcast will take a break over august. sven should have his own podcast anyway.


the podcast is available on common platforms and can be found directly over at skeleton-crew.de/na030. you will find all episodes of ‘natürliche ausrede’ over at skeleton-crew.de/na and anchor.fm/natuerlicheausrede.
the first episode with piayda can be found over at skeleton-crew.de/na017, see below.


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.


as promised, episode 017 is now also available via youtube and can be listened to and shared by the video player above.
also you can listen to the episodes on youtube.


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.

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.

2020-07-07 summer group shows: 'ansehBar' and 'schöner! pt.3'
we are facing a strange year recently, many cultural events like art shows had been postponed or cancelled. so we are very happy to announce two group exhibitions featuring sven piayda which had been affected or even been launched as answer to the covid-19 crisis.

based upon the problematic issue of impossible big openings and the loss of opportunity for artists to show and sell work the gelsenkirchen based szeniale organisation developed 'ansehBar', a billboard based outside exhibition project curated by nancy e. watt and christoph lammert.

with this action we don't just want to bring beautiful colourful pictures into the city. it is above all about strengthening and sharpening the perception. if art and culture cannot be present in public space to the usual extent, or if no (regular) form of organizing presentation is possible, it is necessary to fill and enliven this space in a different way. art and culture are vital, they are building blocks of a successful society, signs of democratic coexistence and - under all circumstances - to make them visible in public space, the curators state.

'ansehBar' wants to make art in times of distance rules experienceable in an unusual way: wherever else advertising can be seen, artistic works will be shown from july to september 2020. in cooperation with the department of culture of the city of gelsenkirchen, the förderverein szeniale invites up to 30 artists from the gelsenkirchen independent scene to present themselves publicly and strikingly in the urban space. for this purpose, the media company ströer (initially)15 large-format billboards will be made available free of charge.

the posters form a gallery in public space which, as a satellite project of the festival 'szeniale', brings art and culture from different fields into the urban space: in addition to works from painting, photography and graphics, positions from film, music, theatre, dance and literature can also be creatively transferred to the poster format. the immediate experience is supplemented by digital information that can be called up on each poster with a smartphone via a qr code. a map helps those interested to find their own way through this open-air exhibition on foot or by bicycle.

unfortunately there is no opening event scheduled, you might get updates on escorting events via sven piayda studio on facebook.
nevertheless the show will be opened via press conference as scheduled for friday, july 10, 11.30 am at trinkhalle am flöz (bochumer str. 139 / flöz sonnenschein, gelsenkirchen).

for the 'ansehBar' group show, sven piayda´s 'lifeguard' (2018) had been chosen to be presented on one of the 2.50 by 3.60 meter billboards in the first part of the show running from july 10 to august 10. the escorting text statesas following:
the life belt is missing in its station in the immediate vicinity of the lake. instead, an idiosyncratically shaped substitute hangs in its place, which cannot replace the ring in its function, but which becomes the new motif in the picture. typical for piayda's work are tableaus, mostly photographs of rather unspecific places, usually arranged as landscapes, to which an object was added as a motif in post-production. the work for 'ansehBar' aims to add something beautiful and worth seeing to the urban space, similar to the abstract objects in the photographs.


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 is 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)' will now finally be exhibited at the group show.

the show opening originally 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 covid-19 virus. the group show returns now in slightly different shape:
to reduce the number of actually shown pieces with the given space while presenting all announced works curator klaus wiesel has split the show into three parts. 'future perfect (lvb#10)' is now exhibited within part 3 opening on sunday, july 12, at 4 pm. contradicting differently shared information the piece will be presented as one sided transparent vinyl record which is titled, signed, numbered and dated on the back and is ready to be played on demand. it will be available in an edition of 3 and is also supposed to be presented by the vinyl lounge and probably further art dealers. the piece is available for purchase, please contact the gallery or studio for information. even if differently announced in the media, the piece ‘be sure to wear flowers in your hair’ will not be part of the show, it may return to the gallery as part of the ‘ruhr trilogy’ in different context.

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. this 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.

caused by the aftermath of the lockdown situation, there is no open exhibition on display featuring work by sven piayda (with the exception of the permanent exhibition at galerie treppenhaus and the guest participation at edel extra in nuremberg). all scheduled shows had been postponed or were cancelled. also there are no live dates or dj sets scheduled to take place recently. the studio has used the lockdown situation to work on an exhibition project escorted by a vinyl release merging concepts of experiencing and collecting art and music: aural park.

today sven piayda and the studio in cooperation with zany music reveal a new summer project being a mixture of exhibition and listening event. within the aural park project piayda presents some of his recent sound works as well as exclusively produced versions of record of tides tracks in 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.

to start the project the four exclusive versions from tracks originally found on the 2017 record of tides album ‘solna’ are released today on zany music and are available on transparent vinyl as limited edition only. the vinyl comes with additional transparent sleeve with record of tides logo sticker. as the release is limited to 100 copies only, there are less than hundred copies available. as there have been numerous pre-orders, the 12’’ is sold out today on the day of release. in case of being interested in purchasing a copy anyway, make sure to contact the studio to be registered for a reissue of the album.
escorting the vinyl ep, record of tides ‘aural park’ is also available as mp3 bundle with compact disc sized and edited artwork. the digital version is available via /CAMP, a password protected area only open to customer having purchased the vinyl or any other sven piayda related content.
the vinyl purchase also enables to customers to receive the AP ADDS mp3 bundle, a three-track-60-minute hdj set featuring tracks of inspiring artists.


we are recieving a lot of positive feedback concerning the artwork for 'aural park' vinyl EP and decoding attepts concerning the sleeve design. the variation of the motorway sign is a clear reference to kraftwerk´s 'autobahn' while the kids chasing after a deer reminds of visual achetypes found in boards of canada artwork. however, all of your feedback is appreciated and it might be a true indicator for good design that we see and feel similar things while looking at it. let´s see what the next cover will be all about...

please check the discography for tracklist.

to participate in aural park listening events (announced only a few days in advance caused by dependence on the weather) please check the project site and confirm your participation reliably via facebook events.

as you might know, michael schreiber and sven piayda have been collaborating for the well appreciated album ‘altered stems’ and have been discussing further collaborations since. next to music production it is remarkable that schreiber is also a trained code programmer who has already created code for well-known artists and is now collaborating with the studio for generative image production. they have already finished a mini series wich remains unreleased but have also created series of posters escorting the 'aural park' project:




the 'aural park' vinyl ep has received great feedback, not just for the music but also for the great artwork made for this format. unfortunately, there have not been any listening events so far caused by bad weather and schedule difficulties. so we are very happy to tell you that sven piayda studio has been working in collaboration with programmer michael schreiber on an 'aural park' fine art print poster edition series. there are four posters available, sized 75 by 50 cm, ready to order from the aural park microsite or at listening events. as the vinyl ep is sold out we also expect the posters to be sold out soon. please note: purchasing an aural park poster designed by michael schreiber and sven piayda also enables access to /CAMP and the ‘aural park’ ep as mp3 & jpg bundle.

2020-06-26 'aural park' vinyl ep release and show launch today
caused by the aftermath of the lockdown situation, there is no open exhibition on display featuring work by sven piayda (with the exception of the permanent exhibition at galerie treppenhaus and the guest participation at edel extra in nuremberg). all scheduled shows had been postponed or were cancelled. also there are no live dates or dj sets scheduled to take place recently. the studio has used the lockdown situation to work on an exhibition project escorted by a vinyl release merging concepts of experiencing and collecting art and music: aural park.

today sven piayda and the studio in cooperation with zany music reveal a new summer project being a mixture of exhibition and listening event. within the aural park project piayda presents some of his recent sound works as well as exclusively produced versions of record of tides tracks in 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.

get all info on
svenpiayda.com/auralpark

recordoftides.com



to start the project the four exclusive versions from tracks originally found on the 2017 record of tides album ‘solna’ are released today on zany music and are available on transparent vinyl as limited edition only. the vinyl comes with additional transparent sleeve with record of tides logo sticker. as the release is limited to 100 copies only, there are less than hundred copies available. as there have been numerous pre-orders, the 12’’ is sold out today on the day of release. in case of being interested in purchasing a copy anyway, make sure to contact the studio to be registered for a reissue of the album.
escorting the vinyl ep, record of tides ‘aural park’ is also available as mp3 bundle with compact disc sized and edited artwork. the digital version is available via /CAMP, a password protected area only open to customer having purchased the vinyl or any other sven piayda related content.
the vinyl purchase also enables to customers to receive the AP ADDS mp3 bundle, a three-track-60-minute hdj set featuring tracks of inspiring artists.


please check the discography for tracklist.

to participate in aural park listening events (announced only a few days in advance caused by dependence on the weather) please check the project site and confirm your participation reliably via facebook events.

we are also happy to announce that sven piayda will be participation in another exhibition project presenting one of his photographic works as billboard this summer. by not telling too much the group show will be open in the ruhr area. more info on date, place and featured work to be come up soon. above you see ‘golden summer’, which was presented 2017 in dresden, germany.


as you might know, michael schreiber and sven piayda have been collaborating for the well appreciated album ‘altered stems’ and have been discussing further collaborations since. next to music production it is remarkable that schreiber is also a trained code programmer who has already created code for known artists and is now collaborating with the studio for generative image production. we hope to present some works soon!




back in early 2017 the ludwiggalerie schloss oberhausen exhibited the sven piayda 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. now the studio has finally managed to produce and to deliver the work to be added to the collection. the museum is happy to have it in the collection and so is sven piayda who has designed a transparent cover for the dvd edition. further copies of the edition are still available. in case of being interested in getting a dvd edition piece of ‘duracell video after vom bruch and fibonacci’ please contact the studio directly. 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.


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 exhibited 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 group show returns now in slightly different shape. to reduce the number of actually shown pieces with the given space while presenting all announced works curator klaus wiesel has split the show into three parts. 'future perfect (lvb#10)' is now supposed to be exhibited within part 3 opening on sunday, july 12. contradictive to differently shared information the piece will be presented as one sided transparent vinyl record to be played on demand. it will be available in an edition of 3 and is also supposed to be presented by the vinyl lounge and probably further art dealers. the piece is available for purchase, we expect the prices to go up within the coming months. even if differently announced in the media, the piece ‘be sure to wear flowers in your hair’ will not be part of the show, it may return to the gallery in different context.

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. this 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.

our friend and collaborator karla köhler was supposed to open her 2020 solo show at edel extra, nürnberg on april 22. as consequence of the covid-19 crisis the show has been postponed to a new date to be announced finally: the show will be on display now from june 24 to 28 while there will be no opening. the show is also supposed to 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.



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.


as promised, episode 017 is now also available via youtube and can be listened to and shared by the video player above.
also you can listen to the episodes on youtube.


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)

please contact the studio for purchase.
facebook.com/svenpiaydastudio
studio.svenpiayda.com




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.


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.

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.
also: ‘four seasons after arcimboldo’ have been part oft he show, they are now on display as postcard versions at galerie gublia in essen.

2020-06-12 schreiber & piayda collaboration album ‘altered stems’ out now


we are happy announce the release of the collaboration album by michael schreiber (stage name ‘all notes off’) and sven piayda (a.k.a. ‘record of tides’) for ‘altered stems’. schreiber and piayda have produced a number of reworks and remixed of tracks originally created by the other one, the full album was produced around easter. the collection of newly edited tracks is out on 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.

you can get the album released on zany music
and distributed via archive.org.

all-notes-off.de | recordoftides.com


michael schreiber has directed a video for the common track ‘care’, which is originally to be found on the 2018 record of tides album ‘endurance’ and has be reworked by all notes off. the video had been released yesterday in advance and has already received beautiful feedback, which we do not want to hold back: you guys are really killing me too, yo. you're the guys who mess up the amateur competition, because they've outgrown it by miles, but (thank god) steadfastly refuse to leave for the anonymous, friends-of-the-old-days-you-don't-know-anymore-professionals-camp. I say this without envy, but with a certain sigh.





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. you can see all mash-up pictures of past live performances which have been produced for promotion purposes above.


the video for the first rework on record of tides’ ‘mountains’ was released in spring 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, 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. as the release is limited to 100 copies only, there will be less than hundred copies available. 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)'.
please contact us for listening/download links. more info soon.

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 exhibited 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 group show returns now in slightly different shape. to reduce the number of actually shown pieces with the given space while presenting all announced works curator klaus wiesel has split the show into three parts. 'future perfect (lvb#10)' is now supposed to be exhibited within part 3 opening on sunday, july 12. contradictive to differently shared information the piece will be presented as one sided transparent vinyl record to be played on demand. it will be available in an edition of 3 and is also supposed to be presented by the vinyl lounge and probably further art dealers. the piece is available for purchase, we expect the prices to go up within the coming months. even if differently announced in the media, the piece ‘be sure to wear flowers in your hair’ will not be part of the show, it may return to the gallery in different context.

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. this 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.

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.

2020-05-28 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)'.
please contact us for listening/download links. more info soon.


more info to come up soon, get all info on
svenpiayda.com/auralpark



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.


there are still further dvd editions from iconic works (all have been exhibited at ludwiggalerie). some are still available, some are not, please contact the studio for info.



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.
also you can listen to the episodes on youtube.


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)

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.

2020-05-14 michael schreiber & sven piayda team up for ‘altered stems’
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.

as there will be vinyls coming up which we expect to be sould out rapidly, we would like to offer a preview:

the studio is recently very busy on compleating 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.


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)

please contact the studio for purchase.

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.

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.


as we do not expect too many shows to be on display this summer anymore, the studio is working on a new concept working-titled ‘aural park’, where recent sound works (and electronic music) are supposed to be placed into public and private parks. more info on this project to be up soon.

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.

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’.




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:

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.

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).

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':

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’.

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.

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)

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.

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.
also: ‘four seasons after arcimboldo’ have been part oft he show, they are now on display as postcard versions at galerie gublia in essen.

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.

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.

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.

more info at the bottom of this post.


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.

update 2020-03-02: even if there have been many options in dicussion, the studio has decided to not produce a vinyl for the upcoming 'SCHÖNER!' exhibition, as the studio is busy with numerous further projects. also it is not sure how the edition piece can be offered successfully. the sound piece will be installed, probably in combination with another sound work, but there will be no record edition. please apologize.


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.

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!

a last view into the jahresschau gelsenkirchener künstlerinnen und künstler at kunstmuseum gelsenkirchen. the great show has be deinstalled. the catalogue is still available. also have a look at the freshly updated exhibitions section and the waz article in the press section.


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.

update 2020-02-21: we have been very busy over the last weeks, actually without the anticipated results. having a look at the schedule is not helpful at all. however, we need a break to ged rid of the bad cold floating around and the numerous professional dates. we´ll be back in a week with a funny little thing for you.

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.

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.


check zany music to find the bootlegs for download, further downloads and the full zany music catalogue.
