The Amnis Initiative

Dennis Lodewijks is  adutch composer who also runs the Vangelis fanpage. You can hear musical hints in his compositions.
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.

The Amnis Initiative - Alternate Timelines

Artists: The Amnis Initiative
P: 2021
If you like melodies like Vangelis plays, just tune into this one. We love it!
No wonder, it's the composer that runs the Vangelis fanpage. He knows what he is playing about!

Retro synth music that takes the best of the '70s, the '80s and perhaps some of the '90s as well, to paint an updated picture of the future we once dreamed of. Electronic instrumental music from the old days, with a touch of the revisionist nostalgia that synthwave, vaporwave, retrowave, neo cyberbunk have brought to life.

The Amnis Initiative - Cinematic (CD + DVD)

Artists: The Amnis Initiative
P: 2017
The 2017 concept album by the Amnis Initiative. Released on CD with a bonus DVD for the 5.1 surround mixes.Melodic and emotive instrumental electronic music exploring the corners of the electronic music genre to meet one common standard: To sound cinematic. The tracks on this album don't belong to one single genre. To the contrary, they freely and purposefully explore completely different galaxies in the vast universe of electronic music. It's not a shared style, consistent pace or characteristic sound that binds this music together.

Instead, each track tries to meet just one criterion: Is it cinematic? Does it tell a story, and does it do so in a cinematic spirit? Cinematic as a feeling, a quality, a direction, or cinematic in scope or ambition.

Cinematic music might be infused with a heightened sense of reality. It may carefully construct one or more plotlines. It could have a visual quality or it might subtly emphasize a certain dramatic angle. Or, it may just... sound cinematic!

The Amnis Initiative - Ejection

Artists: The Amnis Initiative
P: 2020
Sophisticated melodic electronic music with a contemporary electro / ambient appeal, blended with the melodic qualities of the classics in the genre, with references to Vangelis, Jean Michel Jarre, Jan Hammer, Hans Zimmer, Carbon Based Lifeforms, Asura, Astronaut Ape, Madis, Volkor X and others.
A concept album 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.
