The word "Quiver" can speak to an emotional state - "a slight trembling movement or sound". A quiver is also the word for a kind of container, used for holding arrows, bolts, or darts.
Yui Onodera and Stephen Vitiello employed a vast array of sound sources for meticulous processing on their computers from electric violins, acoustic and electric guitars, modular synthesizer to toy piano and field recordings. They built music rich with textures, loops, strange structures blurring the lines between foreground and background sounds thus making a complex and mysterious, generous and surprising music.
These compositions by Onodera and Vitiello are layered with possibility and will mean something different to each listener.
