Hey ! I also forgot that...

I'm a 18 yo french guy (sorry for the bad english) and i love BOC

BOC is the first real music group that made me interested more deeply into music. When i was little i loved music but then came a time where i completely stoped caring about this (due to multiple reasons that i'm sure are not really interesting). And the scotish duo was the ending of the sad part of my life. And then a very famous french youtuber (Antoine Daniel) talked about a band i really loved : Boards Of Canada
It was also the time where salad fingers was a trend on youtube.
The first i ever heard was geogaddy. I didn't like it at first but then i came back again, and again, and again. I also discovered MHTRTC wich i really REALLY loved. And then TCFHP. And TH (wich i find really underrated) And finally, Geogaddi became another great masterpiece from Boards of Canada. Thanks to them i too, interest of other idm artists like aphex twin and autechre. I also tried Ok computer and Kid A and loved Kid A (especially everything in it's right place).


Now, even though i don't like metal and modern rap (rap from the 90's is amazing though), i listen to pretty much everything. From "No surprise" to "Hamburger Lady" (even if i'm not a huge fan of the throbbing gristle, you got to admit that the ambiance is really well made). And most importantly, like a lot of people here, i make music. Since BOC is the most important band to me, my music is really similar to the scotish duo. (
But to be honest, I find that sometimes my musics are too much in the style of boards of canada, so I try to vary my music. Granular sampler / synth for exemple. It makes a weird mix between IDM and vaporwave. I also test the break. But only time will tell if it works ...)

My philosophy is : there is no "best Boards of canada albums". They all have their own style, their own mood and are all different experiences.

Hello! I'm Wakko. That's not my real name but I'm playing a character and I don't want anyone to know my real name. I've only been a Boards of Canada fan for about 6 months, but I've already become pretty much an obsessive fan. I know all the lore, all the history, all the songs. And so I figured I'd make an account on the forum just to see what other BoC fans have to say about the greatest band of all time. Still waiting for someone to find a copy of Hooper Bay. Just sayin.
Faboo!

Hey! Just come across this place. Have been meaning to join for a while. I am Tom and I am from Brexit. I currently live in Iceland and have been here for 5 years, but I am making a big move to France next month.

Discovered BOC in 2012 pretty much at the same time that I became a full blown alcoholic. I think it's only coincidental :P I have now been sober four years and BOC has never ever become tainted for me, despite the fact that I never stopped listening through the darkest times. In fact, maybe BOC helped me not sink deeper.

They sure as hell help me with my hours and days during this brighter days. I have never stopped to truly analyse the music so much but I have always hoped to listen a lot deeper with a curiosity. I was hoping to do that shortly and I imagined it would be good to sign up here in advance to share thoughts and listen to others to influence my curiosity in the best way.

Haven't spoken to anyone ever who also likes BOC, so here we go. Let's see what happens.

Greetings to all of you! x
