Boards of Canada
"From One Source All Things Depend"

This track released by this reclusive Scottish duo is comprised of recordings of North American children talking about god. In keeping with one of the themes of apocalypse, especially when derived from a religious origin, I wanted to touch upon the Waco massacre. The record this track is taken from is full of references to the Branch Davidians, an apocalyptic, separatist Christian sect with a compound in Waco, Texas. In 1993 tensions between the Davidians and the federal government spun out of control. All of the children depicted here (19 of which were under the age of 10) were killed when the apocalypse they were taught to wait for, arrived (in the form of the US government).
