Welcome to the official website of "The Amnis Initiative".

Amnis, in Latin: "Broad, deep flowing, rapid water; stream, torrent, river; ocean; liquid; current."
The Amnis Initiative: Instrumental music for a new era. Sit down, close your eyes, and flow with the music.

The Amnis Initiative

The Amnis Initiative aims to excite the imagination, stir emotions and stimulate the brain with evocative, yet soothing instrumental music. Although performed primarily on electronic instruments, focus always remains on the human aspects of music. Amnis aspires to preserve and continue such traditions, both in composition and performance, which are often overlooked in modern electronic music.

"Playing music is a form of storytelling. Composing is coming up with the story. The trick is to try and do both equally well."

Relaxation Music: The Complete Series This six part series of interconnected relaxation music tracks was originally released as individual singles between October 2011 and January 2013, periodically expanding the series with new chapters.

Each piece of music was conceived to slow down your mind, helping you concentrate on the music and therefore tuning out from the rest of the world. The soft and mystical sounds aim to calm the soul and rest your body.
