Sendes vanligvis innen 2-5 dager
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. Songs by Mirah and Spectratone International form a musical backdrop for the stunning stop-motion animation by Britta Johnson. First showing as part of the 2007 Seattle International Children's Festival, the collaborative works were formed around the theme of insects. The short-lived nature of the insect's existence is chronicled and explored through detailed imagery utilizing found objects and music that pulls from several genres including 1960s-inspired folk.
