of or pertaining to dreams.
Origin of oneiric:

of or relating to or suggestive of dreams
Of or pertaining to dreams.
Resembling a dream; dreamlike.
Oneiric is the debut album by electronic musician Boxcutter. The word oneiric means "of or pertaining to dreams; resembling a dream, dreamlike". This release established Boxcutter's experimental breaks and bass-driven style of music, which at first appraisal was labeled as dubstep because of its similar 2-step rhythms and warped basslines. However, comparisons were also drawn to IDM in that most tracks featured heavy use of effects and processed samples of live instrumentation. "Tauhid", for instance, begins with a distorted flute sample that intercuts throughout the track, while "Sunshine V.I.P." features choppy, rapid-fire beat sequencing sourced from live drums in addition to a flute melody. Lynn says of his approach to musicmaking: The track "Hyloz" was used in Amon Tobin's live mix set during his Foley Room tour in 2007, though it is mistakenly listed as "Grub" on the subsequent release.
