If you go to YouTube and search: Boards of Canada — you will come across masses and masses of amazing videos with strange music behind them. The music of Boards of Canada, for some reason, has inspired YouTubers everywhere to create videos to go along with their songs. I read in the comments of the following video that the members of Boards of Canada themselves judge the videos and announce winners.
I have heard their music in ambient music channels and others…but their music kind of defies categorization. It’s a crazy mix. There are beats to it, so it shouldn’t really fall into the ambient category. Wikipedia classifies them as Electronic, IDM, ambient, downtempo …whatever that means, for what it’s worth.
