Elfin Saddle began working with Constellation in late 2008 when the label invited the group to record a new album at the Hotel2Tango studio in Montreal. The resulting Ringing For The Begin Again (CST059) appeared in spring 2009. At the same time, the band's co-founders, Emi Honda and Jordan McKenzie, were also completing a year-long art project involving sculpture, stop-motion animation and time-lapse video. Using the backyard of their Montreal apartment as an installation site, Emi and Jordan evolved and devolved an entire miniature world, conjuring an historical arc of civilization from early settlement and relative harmony with nature to gradual industrialisation, mechanisation and the inevitable discontents of over-production, waste and decline.

Emi and Jordan worked on this installation every day for a year, meticulously building, shaping and documenting its trajectory with time-lapse video while also shooting many detailed sequences with stop-motion photography. The resulting work is a wondrous, unpretentious, gently mystical 23-minute video piece entitled Wurld, for which they also composed the soundtrack.
