Turquoise Hexagon Sun (5:09)

Cover of Music Has the Right to Children

From Music Has the Right to Children and 5 other releases

It has been suggested that the title, Turquoise Hexagon Sun, was inspired by a documentary featuring a prominent turquoise hexagonal sun lens flare.

The number of blades making up the shutter of a camera influences the shape of the lens flare produced. As such, a six-bladed shutter would produce a hexagonal sun flare effect.

    Good times and happy memories with dear friends and family under the hexagon sun. I've never really, truly experienced this feeling but this track puts me in that place, at least for a short time.

    it may place so high in scrobbles because it is on three different releases (MHTRTC, Hi Scores and Boc Maxima). personally it's my most scrobbled BoC track because of this.

    Too popular and overrated? Fuck that. This song is awesome, no argument.

    pensive in a vaguely worrisome way, like bubbles forming beneath thin ice

    This is not only one of Boards of Canada's best songs, but it's one of THE best songs.

    but not even one of the best off of MHTRTC. A tad overrated. [2]

    This is a good track, but not even one of the best off of MHTRTC. A tad overrated.

    The song that got me into BoC. Great track. That beat is haunting.
