Directed by Melissa Olson, the first ever official music video from Boards of Canada is truly a thing of beauty. Suspended on the edge of space in a balloon, an astronaut looks down at the beautiful planet earth and prepares to dive in. Leaping from the balloon, he floats down through the earth's atmosphere, dense cloud cover and into the ocean. The daredevil voyager emerges from the chaos of the sea on a surf board, riding a huge wave to the shore. Using reassembled documentary footage, the video to "Dayvan Cowboy" translates the power and atmosphere of Boards Of Canada's music into a dreamlike, imaginary journey from space, into the sea and to the shore, in one continuous sequence.
