Knitting By Twilight

Presspage | Available for Purchase | About Knitting By Twilight

Presented in a limited, numbered edition six panel vessel, suitable for framing.


“Eight modern instrumentals, curious and changeable. Voiced with all manner of instruments (a few of which you may actually have heard of) including butterfly slide, ebow, evelyn's metals, pots, pans, a lovely pair of French whisks and other items you might otherwise find in a good domestic kitchen.

Then there are the found sounds: electric percolator, the clinking bottles of a grand dairy dream, good morning bird calls, and why not, the Atlantic Ocean. I can imagine a deeper meaning at work and play here, but for now I'm content to simply enjoy the sometimes joyful, and oftentimes melancholy tones of 'Weathering.'“
– Daphne Dakota for it’s Twilight Time/Summer 2011.
