Boards of Canada
Boards of Canada are a Scottish electronic music duo consisting of brothers Michael Sandison and Marcus Eoin.  Signing to Skam and then Warp Records in the 1990s, the duo received recognition following the release of their influential album Music Has the Right to Children in 1998.   They released a number of recordings to critical praise, including Geogaddi (2002) and Tomorrow’s Harvest (2013).
The work of Boards of Canada draws on the warm analogue sounds of 1970s media and has been described as exploring themes of childhood and nostalgia.  In 2012, FACT called them “one of the best-known and best-loved electronic acts of the last two decades.”  They have remained reclusive, rarely giving interviews or performing live.

Boards of Canada’s music is reminiscent of the warm, analogue sounds of 1970s media and contains themes of childhood, nostalgia and the natural world. Mike and Marcus have mentioned the documentary films of the National Film Board of Canada, from which the group’s name is derived, as a source of inspiration. Other, more industrial sounds are often incorporated in their music, with usage of distorted, highly processed beats. The vast majority of their tracks are downtempo ambient, although some releases display faster, more abrasive sounds.  (Wikipedia)

“Not, of course, that the category of space had been abolished. (..) Space was still there; but it had lost its predominance. The mind was primarily concerned, not with measures and locations but with being and meaning.”

“(..) Poring over Judith’s skirts, there in the World’s Biggest Drug Store, I knew that Botticelli – and not Botticelli alone, but many others too- had looked at draperies with the same transfigured and transfiguring eyes as had been mine that morning. They had seen the Istigkeit, the Allness and Infinity of folded cloth and had done their best to render it in paint or stone. Necessarily, of course, without success.”

[Aldous Huxley, The Doors of Perception]


“I can’t keep from fooling around with our irrefutable certainties. It is, for example, a pleasure knowingly to mix up two and three dimensionalities, flat and spatial, and to make fun of gravity.”
[Maurits Cornelis Escher]
