    There's a piece of music that's been doing the rounds for at least 15 years. It's currently being used for the MFI ads as a guitar version. It's original recording is on the accordion and it's a really cool piece. Does anyone know what I mean? what's it called?

    I can't recall it just now, but I have seen the ad...

    While we're on the subject, anyone know what the piece is that's been adapted for the Garmin Satnav ad? Also being used in the original in ads for FilmFour...
     
  3. So what's the name of the advert website where you can search for everything about an ad? I've used it myself but can't remember the name of it. You'll find the info on there anyway...
     
  4. Penguin Cafe Orchestra - Music For A Found Harmonium

    the MFI version isn't the PCO, but it's been covered by a lot of people in the folk world.
     
  5. the track's on their Broadcasting From Home album. there's also a version on Concert Program. there's a couple of compilation CDs too.

    the Orb did a remix of the track, it's very popilar

    wicked cheers. that's been doing my head in for years and years. I thought It was the future sound of london but I suppose the Orb isn't a million miles different eh :evil:
     
  7. i think the Orb remix is on "Preludes, Airs and Yodels" a compilation out a few years ago. My fave version of the track is on Concert Program, but that's as it's the live version that i've heard the PCO play many times where it comes in after two very sad pieces and when the (found) harmonium starts up it really makes my skin break out in goodebumps and my heart soar.

    i don't know who does the MFI one, i only heard it last night for the first time, but, as i said, it's a favourite in folk/celtic circles and has been covered a few times.

    http://www.penguincafe.com/ will have more info

    Thank you,
    I don't own a TV and I've kept hearing Music For A Found Harmonium, and not a version I've heard before, coming thru the floor from my neighbours telly above! I'd guessed it was used in an advert because it comes on almost every 20mins.

    Mystery solved.

    It was also used in the opening scene of a movie some years ago. I still can't find out which film it was.

    It's used all over the shop- I find it fits well with sitting on a train. It also reminds me of post-club sessions when I was getting off me face with the sun coming up *sigh* those were the days........when I had brain cells to spare.
     
  11. there was an Aussie film called Malcolm that had PCO music all through it. Napoleon Dynamite had Harmonium in the soundtrack too. PCO stuff is used a lot and rightly so.

    It's a great track. I remember spending ages trying to find out what it was before going out and buying it. On tape.
     
  14. It is. Not as good as the original, which in turn is not as good as Colin Reid's version.
     
  15. the PCO version on Concert Program is the best version for me. well, apart from the versions in my head from shows over the years (especially last week).

    the title of the track refers to the fact Jeffes found a harmonium in the street in japan. it had been thrown out, so he 'adopted' it and wrote that piece for it to play.
