'O IS FOR ORANGE' a Boards Of Canada inspired AV set – DJ Food Friday 20th July 2018
“Engaging Audio Video mix of the Board’s work + inspired material from their contemporaries” – Igloo Magazine
A night for all Boards of Canada fans... what a delightful way to spend a summer evening – served up by Ninja Tunes very own DJ Food ‘O Is For Orange’ is a Boards of Canada-inspired Audio Video mix – the sound of weathered tape saturation, detuned analogue synthesisers, vinyl crackle and machine hum.
It’s also the look of unfocused, flickering lenses, mirror image filters and blurry grain embedded into film. Unofficial fan films sit alongside experimental animation, public information shorts and even the odd video by the band themselves.
Material that BoC took inspiration from blends with their own work as well as many that they subsequently inspired.
Audience reviews from 1st show!
"Awesome Boards of Canada inspired show by @djfood last night. It's been absolutely ages since I've been to anything like this: 11 years ago or so I was so immersed in that sort of world."
"It was a fantastic night. I think @boctransmission would be proud to have their music interpreted and received like this! Manchester have a lot to look forward to."
"Amazing set. I’m pretty sure no other DJ has ever gone from The 5th Dimension to Machinedrum via Zammuto and Colonel Abrams. #impressive"
"That was an absolutely amazing gig! Nothing Is Real was gorgeous, and dropping Center Your Love was perfect and unexpected! Great night!"
"top night...my highlight was when you dropped Broadcast and The Focus Group...seeing Trish brought a lump to my throat, emotional stuff in a good way."
