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 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."
With Distant Dreams, the Amnis Initiative offers a musical peek into those far off places that may or may not exist, somewhere beyond the horizon.
