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."

Album: The Colors Of Time

The Colors Of Time The latest album features 14 brand new instrumental synth tracks, styles ranging from melodic progressive to electronic symphonic and from cinematic ambient to atmospheric Berlin school. What if time is our dive through a chronologic string of impressions, colors and memories?

Album: Ejection

ejection The 2020 concept album, released on CD as well as digital Streaming and downloading with 5.1 surround mixes available as hi resolution Flac files for download.

Inspired by the Carrington Event and other solar storm incidents that warn us for the dangers of relying on modern technology. On a faithful day back in 1859 the sun ejected so much solarplasma and charged particles during a five minute eruption that its solar storm covered our planet in world-wide aurora. And burning telegraph poles. If this happens again - and it will - our electronics will fry, power will be out and telecommunications will come to a sudden stop. Imagine our world after that inevitable day.
