Someone to Break the Silence
'SOMEONE TO BREAK THE SILENCE', the new bundle of whimsy, wonder and wistful thinking from Music & Art Collective Knitting by Twilight, directed by charter member and principle writer John Orsi. This ep features selections from the forthcoming Knitting by Twilight album 'AN EVENING OUT OF TOWN', together with exclusive tracks. Musical performances by John Orsi, Mike Marando, Karen Orsi and Don Sullivan. Providence Phoenix Review - 11 May '06 'There's a healthy whiff of whimsy surrounding this John Orsi side project. It's slightly more accessible and lighter of heart than his Overflower work, but no less interesting. KBT is another of Providence's loose and consummately creative collectives. These ensemble projects generally begin as the seedling idea of one person, but take root in several different directions. The result is entertaining and substantial tunes such as the opening "Sigh" and eerie closer "Audrey," which takes it's roots from the compositions of Steve Reich and Philip Glass'. BOB GULLA www.providencephoenix.com Amazing Sounds Review ''Somone to Break the Silence' is an album with remarkable and varied stylistic textures that mix the Dark Neofolk with Ambient atmospheres, or the meditative airs with romantic Pop and Psychedelic Rock. This music has a pleasant freshness, thanks to the imaginative melodies and architectures.' ALEJANDRO HINOJOSA www.amazings.com Northeast Performer Review -detail- 'Defying classification, Knitting by Twilight is progressive and atmospheric, pensive and minimalist. The limited lyrical content and focus on percussion results in a sort of modern chamber music that seeks to create mood more than anything else.' 'Someone to Break the Silence is a challenging album, but attentive listening will be a truly unique experience.'
