Boards of Canada come orginally from Scotland , made their first realise at 1995 (twoism) . Boards of Canada are the very own project of Michael Sandison and Marcus Eoin Sandison ( they are brothers) . Boards of Canada’s music is reminiscent of the warm, scratchy, artificial sounds of 1970s media and contains themes of childhood, nostalgia and the natural world. Michael 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. Boards of Canada signed with WARP records and until today , they made several works . Recently Boards of Canada started their own label named Music 70. We consider BOC as one more name , part of the holly aliance into the electronic music scene. Please send us your comments
