Boards of Canada have released a song entitled Everything You Do Is a Balloon that appeared on Hi Scores.

Has it ever been officially explained by the duo what does that song title mean? Or is it just supposed to be a silly name?

1 Answer 1


It appears to be a personal story, as stated in the first published interview 'The Age of Aquarius' of the band, conducted by The Cosmic Crofter.

... Some titles are personal stories, such as 'Everything You Do Is A Balloon', which was a realization made long ago in the forest".

    That's a nice find, thank you very much, however unfortunately it seems that there isn't a full explanation of the title anywhere

    You're welcome. And yes, I searched for quite some time, but this is the only 'official' thing I could find. Of course there has been speculated much by fans, but as far as I can see this is never confirmed by the band itself. Mar 17, 2015 at 16:08
