In the in-between, the space between a flower's full bloom and the wilting of its last petal, between sculpture and debris, between sunset and twilight, here is where Life Toward Twilight's atmosphere is sired. Here is created an ambiance of beauty and distress in a euphonic equilibrium of static, lullaby, and aria.
Life Toward Twilight is a dark ambient, post-industrial project comprising solely of Detroit artist Daniel Tuttle. The project began in 1999 as Daniel was branching out from Ogun’s Will, a heavy industrial project comprised primarily of Daniel and fellow member and composer Shawn Kent which he had been a part of since 1994.
Since departing from the thick, beat-driven material of Ogun's Will, Daniel has been committed to Life Toward Twilight and the exploration of the softer, subtler and more minimal composition that was first seen in the debut release of "Into Words I Have Fallen"
With currently seven albums of original compositions, including a 2008 scoring of 1910′s Edison’ Frankenstein, three live albums, and performances alongside some of the most respected and creative forces in electronic music, Life Toward Twilight has since become a solid and exemplary presence of Dark Ambient and Neoclassical music in America and across the globe. Life Toward Twilight’s music is available at Bottle Imp Productions, iTunes, Last.fm, Pandora, eMusic and Amazon.
A charming but hesitant vintage piano performs in the foreground, but is gradually crowded with the noise of objects clanking and jingling together, as though spirits are trying to make themselves heard. In a really eye-widening moment, a very faint, eerie song is tuned in through the static, until it is subsumed by another oceanic storm of white noise.Gothic Beauty Magazine
An entire album made of such bits and pieces, with an old detuned piano, is a truly haunting experience. A meditative echo of the past. Voices of a forgotten era recorded by the magnetic fields of earth. This is an experimental album you’ll play over and over, and then talk to your friends about. Reminded me of The Refractors, Elegi, and Deaf Center.The Headphone Commute
The CD is haunting, but never haunted. We're not taken on some heavy-handed "creepy" journey. This isn't the soundtrack for a horror film about undead tots in a contaminated nursery. It's the sound off an old, decaying orphanage where the echoes of children and songs just want to be tucked in until the end of time.Sepiachord
