Odonata is a state of mind


Amethystium's work here reveals a higher state of mind. With Bija being the one comparable work to Odonata from another artist. The tonality works your minds visual cortex when the eyelids are closed while opening streams of consciousness coincident with phosphenes of glory.

Energy while at peace describes Odonata very best. You start with levels that ride into various levels of existence. Yoga practictioners along with those accustomed to even placed musicical scores should enjoy this CD particularly intense yet soft enough to settle the neurons from each loci present within your spirit.

Impressive Blend


Amethystium has its own style. The Sweetly blended electronic sounds merge with real instruments and percussive drums and loads of reverb to give Amethystium a sound of its own.

I've been enjoying this album for several years


I enjoying playing this album at night, sitting outside my place looking into the forest with iTunes visuals from my iBook going fullscreen. It's that kind of music. Amethystium, I hope all is going well for you!

About Amethystium

An ambient new age/electronica project of Norwegian producer/composer Øystein Ramfjord with world music influences, Amethystium arrived on the scene in 2000 with the self-released EP Autumn Interlude. After signing with Neurodisc Records, he released three albums in four years that all hit the Top 10 of the Billboard New Age Albums chart: 2001's Odonata (its "Odyssey" was later featured in the 2004 IMAX film Sacred Planet), 2003's Aphelion, and 2004's Evermind. The latter featured vocals by Lee Nisbet of Animus Mundi on three tracks. The compilation Emblem (Selected Pieces) was issued in 2006, and Isabliss arrived in 2008. Splitting with Neurodisc, Amethystium's 2012 EP Aurorae was released on Ramfjord's own AM.mu Records. Featuring the Harding fiddle, a traditional Norwegian instrument, the wistful Transience followed in 2014. ~ Marcy Donelson
