"Though they are gone from our forest, there is no time to greave. Remember those who have passed, and they will forever live on." - Ori & the Blind Forest


















Background

 

Irish-born South Korea-based producer and composer, Nogymx is best-known for his atmospheric chill instrumentals often featuring sounds inspired by his 8+ years in Korea. 



Known at home as Jimmy Dunne, the now 31-year-old Irishman is back with his 7th full-length album, Eien's Fable. Following on from his 2020 hit, Ancient Forests, Jimmy takes the listener further into the mysterious world where lofi beats and chill electronic merge to excite and soothe at every turn.



Story

 

Eien's Fable takes off from where Nogymx's 2020 album, Ancient Forests, left off, deep in the strangely alluring ancient woods. You Encounter the Gatekeeper who tells you tales of Eien, a civilization all but forgotten, guarded by the many other unique Spirits of Eien. You are here in a land unimaginably different from yours, yet as you walk in their footsteps, you are hit with a stirring sense of unexpected nostalgia for a place you have never been. Embraced by the warmth of the rain, glimpses of the past flood your mind, transporting you to a place beyond time. As the world shapes itself around you, you draw parallels between this world and yours, realizing why you are here. Eien's story lives on in you, in the heart of the music.
