Distant Dreams The Amnis Initiative Performed and produced by The Amnis Initiative. Art direction, design by Lime Mixed Media. Recorded between September 2009 and October 2010 in The Netherlands. STYLE Dramatic, electronic instrumentals. Distant Dreams presents a series of broad cinematic soundscapes inhabiting the same general audio terrain as the legendary Vangelis. This charming and highly melodic music moves from stirring themes with climactic booming kettle drums and symphonic grandeur through ethereally drifting passages where silvery bird song and golden atmospheres lift the spirits on to programmed downtempo beats, new agey synths and relaxing piano lines

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. Composing is coming up with the story. The trick is to try and do both equally well. Warm and engaging electronic music that blends the qualities of the classics in EM with the sonic qualities of a new generation of electronic composers.

STYLE Dramatic, electronic instrumentals. Distant Dreams presents a series of broad cinematic soundscapes inhabiting the same general audio terrain as the legendary Vangelis. This charming and highly melodic music moves from stirring themes with climactic booming kettle drums and symphonic grandeur through ethereally drifting passages where silvery bird song and golden atmospheres lift the spirits on to programmed downtempo beats, new agey synths and relaxing piano lines. The Amnis Initiative makes abundant use of rich flute voices and lush layered pads to make the music soar with a constant sense of the exotic hanging in the air. There is a somewhat medieval flavour to a number of the lead lines adding to the timeless nature of Distant Dreams. ARTWORK Distant Dreams is presented in an attractive digipack of three panels. Artwork throughout is comprised of amber lit landscapes, the sun illuminating gathered mists or piercing right through in sharp stabs of brightness. The front cover positively glows: a backlit forest of silhouetted trunks and branches; in the foreground red leaves catch the light. The rear cover holds a second moody forest image; track titles and their times laid out across the shadows. Within, the left panel provides a discussion of some thoughts behind the music; the right side delivers all of the technical information: more inspirational photography and a warm, aged paper texture providing ongoing visual stimulation. Behind the disc itself is a twinkling starscape, its infinite black in juxtaposition to the rest of the visuals. OVERALL The Amnis Initiative is the personal project of Dutch composer/keyboardist D. F. Lodewijks, released via his own Amnis Music label. The project takes its name from the Latin Amnis meaning broad, deep flowing water - a stream, a torrent, an ocean - or simply liquid, a current. D. F. Lodewijks has been working with electronic music and sound design for almost two decades producing material from art exhibitions to computer games: The Amnis Initiative began as a vehicle to express the artist's own sonic persona, Distant Dreams being the debut full length release. The thirteen tracks on Distant Dreams aim at a balance between evocative and soothing; music to stir the emotions and excite the imagination. I think that this ambitious goal is well achieved, fans of Vangelis, Amethystium or perhaps Mike Oldfield probably appreciating the mood and scope of this album. The Amnis Initiative web site provides sound samples and plenty of options for buying the music.
