"Major Organ and his Adding Machine!"

Orange Twin Records is excited to announce the eminent release of "Major Organ and the Adding Machine," a short film by Joey Foreman and Eric Harris. Thanks to a vast assemblage effort spanning the past decade, the film is nearing completion and will premiere during the E-6 "Holiday Surprise" shows in October. The film is currently being submitted to film festivals and will be coming out as a CD/DVD set in the Fall of 2009. Accompanying the Orange Twin DVD Edition will be the expanded version of the film's soundtrack, originally released in early 2000, that includes several unreleased bonus tracks and illuminating new liner notes by co-director Harris. The film and album stand as the consummate collaboration of the Elephant 6 collective, and feature musical and theatrical contributions from Jeff Mangum, Kevin Barnes, William Cullen Hart, Julian Koster, Andrew Reiger, Dixie Blood Moustache and all and sundry who participated in the hypercreative halcyon days of late-90's Athens, Georgia.
