Project ОМ130 began from the album Save My Speech Forever. It consists of 21 compositions written by modern musicians to the poems of Osip Mandelstam. It was important to us to visualize the poet’s voice, while creating a bright, vivid style.
Together with Roma Liberov, author of the idea, we were putting a lot of thought into this: how to convey the mood of a celebration of the anniversary — since a tribute album is not a memorial, but a gift. And that’s when Apoc and Nostra came to the rescue. They co-exist in an awesome way — both have variations in thickness that rhyme in weight, and accentual serifs and strokes make you feel like you are lost in the woods, grabbing tree branches.
