Boards of Canada- Hi Scores (Marble Hornets music video)


For those who do not know what Marble Hornets is, it is a web series that revolves around a group of students and the production of a film called Marble Hornets. Early on though the film is abandoned and Alex, the director, goes missing, leaving boxes of tapes behind for his friend. Through these tapes Jay, the narrator of the series, discovers what happened before Alex went missing. One of the malevolent entities in the series is The Operator, know more commonly as the Slenderman. The series is very popular and well produced, and has garnered the praise of film critic Roger Ebert.
More about the series can be found here at this site, including the videos from the series.
The music video was created by a friend of mine, who's deviantart can be found here, and features the song Hi Scores by Boards of Canada from the 1996 EP of the same name. I think the music fits the video rather well!

  4. I've been watching Marble Hornets forever and a day now, and it's shocking that someone like Ebert might give it praise!

    It deserves it, though.
