Live On The Irrelevant Show Sunday April 20, 2014:

Ok, here is the deal:  This Sunday (4/20/14) will be the last live performance for Music  From The Film.  There are several reasons for this.  None of which I will divulge here, but rest assured, we aren’t going away and there are no internal conflicts with the members.  In fact, we have a new album done.  It was tentatively titled “We Have Already Failed”, but it is really gonna be called “Irrelevant”.  But you won’t be able to buy it.  You won’t even be able to download it in one piece.  It will be released to you in tiny morsels, one track per week, on The Irrelevant Show.  So this will be a radio only release.  All the shows are archived, so you can go and dig them out and compile them into one album if you wish, but it will be an ongoing project, meaning this will be one incredibly long album and it won’t be completed until we are.

New Album Available Now:


MUSIC FROM THE FILM – Say Hello To The Boy Who’s Returned From Paradise – now available on zeromoon.


Saturday December 28, 2013 Live At Pyramid Atlantic, Silver Spring, MD

New review of MUSIC FROM THE FILM – Vi Kommer Til A Fa Deg by KZSU Stanford University.

Diego Aguilar-Canabal Reviewed 2012-08-05
Music From The Film hasn’t scored any movies yet, but their songs sound like drugged-out dream interpretations made by several psychotic synesthetic mental patients. Post-Jungian free association tape loop trances brought to you by a duo of DC weirdos, they make really creepy haphazard collages using anything from clanging loops of subterranean percussion, warbling spoken word samples played at all sorts of wrong speeds to sound totally alien, adamantly indecisive keyboard wanderings, bizarro theremin, atonal marimba shredding… It’s not too surprising that one of these guys is a longtime college radio DJ himself (at WMUC 88.1 in College Park, MD… hey, they’re no KFJC, but he’s been at it for a while.) All tracks equally weird, hilarious, and FCC clean. RIYL Human Skab, Dick Panthers, Bunnybrains, Monkey Power Trio
1. Kooky 8-bit meandering with some theremin and buzzing noise 2. Hilarious / creepy alien transmissions, warped percussion and rambling 3. Brief theremin and broken furniture ditty 4. Abrasive smashing percussion with some discombobulated distorted vox 5. Screeching, blipping random circuitbending and braindamaged atonal instrument waking, more alien rambling 6. Sparkly acidwashed synth, broken dialup connection and some more weird rambling 7. Retarded rambling lullaby 8. Some harsh noise, marimba, burping; things and stuff 9. Plunking bass, theremin, lobotomized methhead drumming, rambling 10. An upbeat steady yet awkward beat, weird Dick Panthers esque spoken word. 11. Swirls of noise, theremin, rambling… you get the idea 12. Strange wacked-out crooning, some weird synth effects and bored drumming 13. Somewhat steady 6/8 beat with warped alien vox 14. Buzzing bleeping glitch electronic madness. More alien rambling. 15. Some kind of a jam with toy instruments, I hear some xylophone and mini-accordion I think 16. Monkey Power Trio after inhaling a shit ton of helium 17. Free jazz drum solo with some alien scat-singing 18. Oozing glitch synth dissonance and… yep, you guessed it, more alien rambling 19. Totally warped and fucked up strumming ballad = heartbreak + peyote + outer space 20. Weird echoes of keyboard, percussion, dying alien monster moans 21. Awkward scratching, buzzing, timid marimba and apathetic synth 22. Alien noise scrambling a normal human vocal sample, drags on into some transdimensional shit

Review of Vi Kommer Til A Fa Deg from the August 2012 edition of Baby Sue: :
 When you consider the state of commercial music today…you may tend to think that music is no longer relevant for listeners with the ability the think. Commercial music has sunk so low that there’s hardly anything listenable that ever even sinks into mainstream consciousness. But there are always things happening underneath the surface. And although it takes some effort treading around the internet to find it, there is more creative credible music being made now than ever before in the history of mankind. Music From The Film is the duo of Gary Young and Arthur Harrison…joined on this album by Kevin Buckholdt. We love the introductory statement on the press release that says these guys “…have been basking in obscurity together for over 22 years.” It’s a statement about modern music. If you make music that is creative and credible…it will almost certainly be appreciated by only a very few. But popularity isn’t really the point though…is it? Folks with a conscience and soul aren’t making music for money or fame anyway. They’re making music out of a pure genuine desire to create and express themselves. As such, the strangely titled Vi Kommer Til A Fa Deg is a complete success. Sure, the average listener would be frightened off by these tracks. But that’s not who these guys are playing for anyway. Twenty-two heady peculiar and inventive cuts. Cool.

Maryland twosome, Gary Young and Arthur Harrison have been creating improvisational noise together for more then two decades under many different monikers. On ‘VI Kommer Til A Fa Deg’ which is Norwegian for ‘We’re Going to Get You’ they have added Kevin Buckholdt to the mix. This is their fifth full length album as the group Music from the Film on their first release on the Zeromoon label. These 22 tracks are not easy to describe, and that is a good thing as each track twists and turns with a cacophony of improvisational noise that is uniquely original never knowing what you may hear next. These guys work in the land of bizarro and give a new definition to the term experimental improvisation. They list 32 instruments on the liner notes ranging from Pseudorandom noise sequencers, Theremin, Dulcimer, sound wands, to a series of toy noise makers and something called a Sarah Palin. This is a rather dark album which incorporates every imaginable tone, pitch and beat that you could only hear in your hellish dreams. The voices throughout are mostly poetic nonsense, much of it unintelligible yet you find your ears yearning for more of this delusional prose. These guys are incredibly unpredictable and very original with their approach to chaotic sounds.

Music From The Film – Gary Young and Arthur Harrison have been basking in obscurity together for over 22 years. In the late 1980s and through the ’90s they released several cassette tapes in extremely short runs under the moniker Bone Bunny, and with others in the acts New Killers On The Block and Entfred. Gary also worked with the Washington DC band Drooling Zoomers and Arthur with the bands Jobs For America and Stolen Government Binder Clip. Music From The Film emerged in 2007, representing a departure from many of Gary’s previous projects by virtue of purposeful composition, in contrast to the former releases of hastily-compiled practice sessions. VI KOMMER TIL Å FÅ DEG is their Zeromoon debut and includes Kevin Buckholdt (also affiliated with the groups Prom Concussion, The Parlor Scouts, Get A Tan, and others). Kevin’s main focus in the group is drums and percussion, but on this recording, he also provides other instrumentation. Prior to this release, Music From The Film has produced four full length CDs:  Playfully Abrasive, 2007; World War Tree, 2009; How The West Was Once, 2011; and Say Hello To The Boy Who’s Returned From Paradise, 2011 (digital version, In addition, the group produced a seven inch vinyl record with a custom cardboard adapter that enables multiple options for playback at various speeds (BIT b/w CRUSHFACE, 2010). The group also has exclusive tracks on two compilations, the Sonic Circuits vinyl release District Of Noise Vol. IV (Animal Friends) and the Electro-Music 2011 Sampler Compilation CD (Sea Dog and Just An Orange). Gary also hosts the weekly radio program The Irrelevant Show on WMUC FM in College Park, MD. See for further details, news and upcoming events.
