An overview of registered works.
Boards of Canada's discography essentially falls in two camps.
Many albums which purport to be other rare releases are commonplace too, but almost without exception, these have proven to be fakes of varying qualities so far.

The Hell Interface side-project seems to be more in the nature of a remix project than Boards of Canada proper. The works released under the HI name are: remixes of Colonel Abrams' Trapped and of Midnight Star's Midas Touch, and a strange little speech-only track called The Story of Xentrix. Can this last track be described as a remix? Most of the speech seems to be synthesized; however, the last few words sound rather different - perhaps from another source (just speculation).
There used to be link here to an animated trailer here, for a program called "Zentrix", which was taken down after a while. By request, here it is again (be aware that the trailer is not necessarily related to the Hell Interface track, except by the similarity of names). The trailer can be found at the Zentrix site .
Some of those performances were bootlegged:

Boards of Canada's old website disappeared in 2000. Some fans managed to capture music loops that played on the site, many of which were simply Boards of Canada fiddling around, but some early works later became full songs. A 15 minute YouTube video surfaced on August 1st, 2011, containing all the loops on the site, and can simply be found by searching "Boards of Canada - Web Loops" in the YouTube search bar.
