Live @ Warp10 is a collection of songs recorded during the performance of Boards of Canada at Warp Records' 10th anniversary party on November 5, 1999. As with most of their live performances, unreleased material was played. This collection has not been formally released by Boards of Canada.

3: Unreleased as of current date
4: Unreleased as of current date, but you can find a 'reproduction' by Machinedrum on SoundCloud, which is very close to the live version.
Sorry about the muted sound quality, I was unemployed back then and could only afford a cheap dictation microphone with a maximum frequency response of about 15,000 Hz.
Wait..I’d have been chucked out of the Warp 10th anniversary gig if they’d caught me recording BoC’s set, but now 20 years later my sneaky bootleg is being broadcast on NTS radio as part of the official 30th anniversary celebrations? I guess irony can be pretty ironic sometimes.
Heh! Wasn't me who gifted it to the internet, I was on a painfully slow dialup connection in those days. Burnt it to CD-R for some American friends and they spread it like wildfire.
Do you know the girl who says 'your mum's living room' in a pause in Telephasic Workshop? Always cracks me up!Nope, sorry. Nor did I know the person whose phone rang in time with the music or the lady to my left who blurted out "I feel that in my throat!" The friends I was with were aware I was mic'd up like a sweaty supergrass on a sting operation so they kept pretty quiet.
What can you tell us about the show itself? Was there a visual element to the show? Did the boys work the crowd at all?Standard BoC setup: wobbly super 8 footage projected on a screen behind them and a couple of small TV monitors. They stood pretty motionless throughout. Only time I ever saw Boards jump around on stage was when they opened for Seefeel at Blech in '97.
Although sometimes stated as "The Color of the Fire", this track is very similar to the song "A Moment of Clarity" off of The Campfire Headphase. There also appears to be a synth flourish in this track, used several times, which is also used in "Alpha And Omega" on Geogaddi, at 2:53.
