Programme Note:
At the heart of all sound is vibration. At the heart of all life is oscillation, from the movement of the smallest and simplest particle to the largest and most sophisticated system in our physical and spiritual existence. Up and down, going and coming, in and out, zero and one. quiver, for 14 instruments, is a work in which oscillation and vibration, the “quivering” of its materials, is the basis for every action, from the smallest trill, rhythmic gesture and melodic/harmonic movement, to its overall formal and temporal structure.
