This 2006 release borrows from various influences from children's television music and video game music to Giuseppe Verdi and Shostakovich. The music is uniquely-orchestrated using traditional instruments such as the classical harp and the bassoon, in a refreshing new way.

The music deals with strange themes, such as bread baking, death, rotten fruit, and even an upbeat dedication ballad to the Canadian boxing legend George Chuvalo.

Featuring: Nichol S. Robertson (banjo), Scott Good (bass trombone), Julie Shier (bassoon), Steve Zsirai (bass), Sly Juhas (drums), Kristen Theriault (harp), Kimberley Pritchard (accordion)
