Unreal seeming yet more real than life,
Truer than things true
If dreams these were or captured images,
Dream’s truth made false earth’s vain realities.
Album „The Book Of Dreams volume 1” is a journey into the misty world of dreamscapes. Symbolic hypnagogic images represent deeper aspects of the human soul. These symbols and archetypes are vessels for a volume of knowledge, meanings and interpretations far larger than it could be ever expressed thru spoken language.
As the rules and laws of the material world are made obsolete, in dreams all people experience a profound feeling of freedom that can be compared to the one of flying. In dreams we become closer to understanding the ultimate reality of things. This album is an attempt to bring the deeper darker side of human consciousness into the world of daylight, and create a balance between experience and rational knowledge, between feeling and sense, Bhakti and Jnana, philos and sophia. The soundscapes on the album are portrayed loosely, inspired by the faint colours of impressionist paintings. A major sourse of inspiration were the techniques of visualisation used in buddhism and hinduism and a recent literary project by Marcel Gherman, a short story in progress.
