Relaxation Music Part 4: Arctic River

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.

Chill out with Part 4: "Arctic River". Be guided on an imaginary journey to a place where time seems to stand still.

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