This DVD combines the music of Mirah and Spectratone International with the stop motion films of Britta Johnson to animate the live performances that first debuted at the Seattle International Children's Festival in May 2007. Mirah and collaborators composed a song cycle inspired by the tragic and triumphant lives of insects. The sound is full, subtle, and meticulously rendered, moving easily among a wide range of influences, from early music to folk to psychedelia. Britta Johnson's stop motion film features insects created out of corks, ashtrays, old balloons, and other bits of domestic debris. They're seen singing, hatching, and fulfilling their destinies. "A coy, masterfully written burrow into the world of bugs" - Spin.
