Boards of Canada
Scottish electronic duo
Boards of Canada is a Scottish electronic music duo comprised of brothers Mike Sandison (born June 1, 1970) and Marcus Eoin (born July 21, 1971). They are closely affiliated with UK label Warp and have released a number of works, most notably Music Has the Right to Children and Geogaddi, with little advertising and few interviews. Their sound frequently references sounds of the 1970s and the ’80s and recalls, among other things, the warm, scratchy artificial quality of ’70s-era television. Indeed, Michael and Marcus admit to being inspired by the documentary films of the National Film Board of Canada, from which the group’s name comes.
