Major Organ and the Adding Machine was originally thought to be a side-project of Jeff Mangum and Julian Koster (both of Neutral Milk Hotel).
But the project has grown to include the Elephant Six Orchestra and many others. In March 2001, a CD entitled Major Organ and the Adding Machine was released on Orange Twin Records.
While the mysterious Major Organ is the apparent leader of this project, some of the contributors were Kevin Barnes (of Montreal), Jeff Mangum (Neutral Milk Hotel), Julian Koster (Music Tapes , Neutral Milk Hotel), Eric Harris (Olivia Tremor Control), Will Cullen Hart (Circulatory System, The Olivia Tremor Control), Andrew Rieger (Elf Power, Farty Jones).

Wikipedia Major Organ and the Adding Machine
Major Organ and the Adding Machine is an Elephant 6 supergroup led by the elusive and possibly fictional Major Organ. The liner notes of Major Organ and the Adding Machine, the band's debut album, leave it a mystery as to who is officially featured, and when performing live on the Holiday Surprise Tour, the members of the band wore paper masks to maintain anonymity. It is believed that the main contributors are Jeff Mangum, Julian Koster, Robert Schneider, and Kevin Barnes, whose vocals are most obviously present on the album, but a number of other Elephant 6 musicians are believed to have contributed too, including members of The Olivia Tremor Control, Elf Power, and Of Montreal.
In 1997, when thought to be a side-project of Jeff Mangum and Julian Koster, Major Organ and the Adding Machine contributed a cover of Louis Armstrong's What a Wonderful World to a Kindercore Records Christmas compilation. Over the next few years, they recorded a self-titled album and released it on Orange Twin Records in 2001.
A trailer for a Major Organ and the Adding Machine film was shown at the 40 Watt Club on May 5, 2007 and August 11, 2007. The film was premiered on October 7, 2008 and shown at every show on the Holiday Surprise Tour in the following weeks. The film contains no dialogue and is accompanied by alternate arrangements of songs from the Major Organ and the Adding Machine album. And expanded version of the album, including a DVD of the film, is set to be released in 2009.

Elephant 6 Movie With Jeff Mangum, Kevin Barnes Gets CD/DVD Release
Pitchfork:News here
Last year, we reported that Major Organ and the Adding Machine, a mysterious low-budget movie starring the Elephant 6 collective, would finally get a long-awaited DVD release in fall 2009. We were only off by a year. As it turns out, Orange Twin will release the movie as a DVD/double-CD pack on September 14.
The movie, directed by Joey Foreman and Olivia Tremor Control/Elf Power member Eric Harris, comes packaged with an expanded double CD containing a remastered version of the 2001 album from the shadowy group that shares the movie's name, with seven bonus tracks. The DVD also comes with bonus footage, including music videos, live footage, and other film projects.
Elephant 6 mainstays like Neutral Milk Hotel's Jeff Mangum, of Montreal's Kevin Barnes, and the Music Tapes' Julian Koster contributed to both the movie and the album. Above, you can download the album track "Life Forms (Transmission Received)", which features Harris, Koster, and Olivia Tremor Control's Will Cullen Hart. Down below, you can watch the trailer for the film.
