Album: Auris Cibum (2015)

Album cover of Acid42 - Auris Cibum


Auris Cibum collects 9 tracks and 41 minutes of unreleased music spanning from early 2008 til 2013. These are odds and ends that never made their way into the albums released during those years.

The tracks range in mood and emotion from the angry abstractness of Alec’s Empirical Precursor to the dark downtempo of Embassy Day/Night to the light-hearted space cha-cha of Revenge of the Tikoy to the melancholy of Happyland and the uptempo house beat of Appy Polly Logies.

What draws these nine tracks together is the combination of emotive melodies and the synthetic textures and IDM-influenced tones.


Auris Cibum is a combination of Auris, which is Latin for “gold” or “ear” and Cibum, which is Latin for “meal.” I put the phrase together without knowledge of proper syntax in Latin, hoping to create an archaic-sounding reference to music being “ear candy” or “ear food” or a “golden meal” fed through the ears.


All music composed, programmed, and performed by Lionel Zivan Valdellon (Acid42) using Propellerheads Reason.
