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.

Relaxation Music Part 2: The Origin

Amnis takes a break, by releasing a series of interconnected relaxation music tracks. Each part will be released separately, periodically expanding the series.

Every "Relaxation Music" release is 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.

With "The Origin" the series takes a cosmic turn. Close your eyes and navigate your mind across the corners of the universe.

A version of this track remixed in 5.1 surround sound is also available on this exclusive digital release.

  • Spotify Sound Quality issue

    Spotify has some issues, which makes this track sound very poor in Spotify. At various points the sound seems to drop out. Spotify users can correct this by turning off the "Set the same volume level for all tracks" option in the Spotify Preferences menu.
