about

nomenum Kazan, Russia

It was a long way through several death and rebirth cycles.
A conceptual experiment, started in 1998 and initially conceived with progressive atmospheric rock in mind, but eventually evolved into neoclassic modernism, diatonic serialism, polyphonic sonorism, and other fascinating streams of contemporary music realms (but still strongly bound to progressive and gothic roots). ... more

I.

My Hour is coming
My Age is over
My Way is finished
My Sleep is near

Time is melting
At the line
Step to verge of
The infinity

II.

«I thought the world is a music
I thought the world is a beauty
I thought the world is a poetry
I thought the world is a dream…»

III.

Time is melting
At the line
Step to verge…

IV.

I thought that the world is a music
I thought that the world is a beauty
I thought that the world is a poetry
I thought that the world is a dream.

I.

Now pass beyond the edge of dream…
Now step across Edge of the Dream!

II.

Now pass beyond the edge of dream
Now pass beyond the edge of darkness
Now step across the abyss gates.

Now pass beyond the edge of starlight
Now pass beyond the edge of night
Now step across the doorstep of home.

Now pass beyond the Edge of Shadows
Now stride across the Gates of Oblivion
Cast off forever the bondage of chains!

II.

On the pages of dreams
Dust of shadows lies.
Far from native shores
To the endless ice.
In dark waters’ depth
I shall rest alone.
Lonely fading sail
In the mist of dawn.

«A time there becomes an eternity…»

III.

At the end of Earth
In the mist of night
Icy walls come close
Mourning waves grew quite.
Pulled by mystery
To dark waters’ depth
Sinking sail of mine
Reaches the bottom line.

«Beyond the edge of the dream»

A time here becomes an eternity,
Eternity lasts just a trice,
Life here turns into immortality -
What will happen to you?

IV.

Dust of shadows lies
On forgotten pages.
Sinking sail of mine
In the sea of… faces?..

Time within becomes an eternity,
Eternity lasts just a trice,
Life within turns into immortality -
Who will you become?

Where the moonlight beam
Reaches the bottom line
Of the Sea of Souls
Beyond the Edge of the Dream?

I.

«Hour is coming
Age is over
Way is finished
Sleep is near…»

II.

I shall now return
To the endless dark space.
I shall find my home
In deep and mirror-like lakes.
I’ll become a pale silver glow
Of lunar realms
Which are lost in a silent blow
Of starlight winds.

«Hour is coming
Age is over
Way is finished
Sleep is near…»

III.

«Time is melting at the line…»

IV.

I shall now return
«Hour is coming»,
To the endless dark space.
«Age is over»
I shall find my home
In lunar realms.
«Way is finished»
In silent blow
Of starlight winds.

Hour… Age… Way…
«Sleep is near»
Hour… Age… Way… Sleep…
Step.
