He plays them with drumsticks, with violin bows, he pulls apart a piano and plays it with fishing wire. It’s a creative and poetic documentary that takes us through the demanding process of composing a film score.

Adrian is a captivating guide. Unafraid to experiment and fail, he hurtles through the uncertain work of crafting music from junk, equally at ease explaining sine-wave theory or cursing out rusting power tools. He and director Tate Young have worked closely together for over a decade, which gives rare and intimate over-the-shoulder insight to the creative process.

THE MUSIC OF MADNESS is an exploration of the challenges and power of experimentation, hand-crafted for any filmmaker, composer, cinephile or musician alike. Both Tate Young and Adrian Ellis grew up in Edmonton and are thrilled to be premiering their film at EIFF.
