Alternate Timelines

The latest full album by the Amnis Initiative. Released on CD and through all the usual download and streaming services on September 10, 2021. Remixes in 5.1 surround sound available as Flac downloads on SurroundMusic.one.

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.
