"I couldn’t help but move in weird ways, and smile and just wonder at the flexibility of sound. Never in a million years did I imagine the sounds I came to love so much for their otherworldly, spongy quality could be produced using live instruments by an orchestra. But somehow, Opiuo found a way."-- EDM.com
