Tid – Aurora Surrealis

Visually: The inspiration for the video is a mix between John Bauer’s art and our favorite movies from the 70’s and 80’s; Fairy tales and sci fi – the lands and worlds of wonder and mystery. In order to get the right feel the video has been transposed to VHS and then back to digital – a form of true filtering to obtain a true VHS quality.

Musically: A dark mantra depicting a never-ending spiral as the ways of mankind. A whirlwind of science and ideas and the will to move forward – but do we really? As with the idea for video, this is a sonic landscape telling mystic truths and esoteric visions. The constructed dawn: Aurora Surrealis – Mankind’s own sunrise.

Tid 2015

Tid-Logo-2015-WarGames

Ten years ago I made the first logo for Tid. We [Tid] wanted the logo to change and grow with the band so five years later, as we were about to release Giv Akt, I expanded the logo. Now another five years have passed, a new recording is on the horizon, and once again I re-designed the logo. The following is a short explanation of the symbolics behind the logo/symbol.

Tid-Logo

2005: We wanted a logo that represented the essence of Tid – history and future. Hence it should look like a hieroglyph and/or rune crossbred with an alien symbol from a science fiction movie.

2010: In this version the continuation form of the letter D represents the sun. Around it the phases of the moon and to close it all in – the three dimensions of our physical reality.

2015: To up the dimension bit a notch I choose to add the fourth dimension to this version. The logo as a whole is now orbited by time itself.
