a stroll with my friend, childhood memories..
Boards of Canada
Throughout my life, I've experimented with many genres of music. I've stretched myself and reinvented myself many times.. But I keep returning to the wistfully ambient IDM made an art by Boards of Canada. The music of BoC has much more depth then just notes and beats. There is a frantic quietness, a hidden childish curiousity, an adult longing for naiveté, a nostalgic wonder, all pulsing in the background. There is also an undercurrent of raw, primitive spirituality, not religious spirituality, spirituality in the purest sense, the untainted state of awe and nothingness..
Many people theorize about "subliminal messages" hidden in the works of BoC; this is because both members have expressed an interest in said subject and also because their music is fraught with mostly unintelligible samples from movies, radio, television, and real life.
