A genre-bending collection of compositions performed by the Bug Toast sextet -- a mixture of instrumental pieces and songs with lyrics. This album examines micro and macro experience through multiple lenses --through compound eyes.

A commissioned work, funded by the Regional Arts & Culture Council. This is a contemporary, progressive-folk take on the historical musical form of the oratorio. Libretto by Merridawn Duckler. Music composed & performed by Bug Toast.

Can we be more empathetic to the plight of refugees -- people who have had to leave their homelands? This cycle of compositions serves to personalize the arc of one family's story.

Our response to the craziness of 2020, which withstood a global pandemic, demonstrations against systemic racism, disasters brought on by undeniable climate change, political and social division,

and crucial decisions we continue to face as a nation.
