Daft Punk x Tron: Legacy

9 Jan

Daft Punk should get an Oscar for Best Original Song or Best Original Score.

I just saw Tron tonight, and for me, Daft Punk’s DJ set at the ‘Tron’ rave was my favourite part. One of the most anticipated films of the year, the hype around ‘Tron: Legacy’ is matched only by the hype around its soundtrack. The first new material from Daft Punk in some five years, it saw the French duo team up with a 100 piece orchestra.

“Here’s a cool little anecdote. One night one of the cameras went down so we couldn’t shoot for a couple hours” said producer Sean Bailey. “So there was this impromptu rave in the Tron warehouse in the middle of the night with Daft Punk deejaying.”

Speaking to io9, director Joe Kosinski expanded on the role Daft Punk’s music plays within the film. “We met (Daft Punk) early on about three years ago, before there was any script, before there was the visual effects test” he said.

“It was one of the first meetings of the project. I quickly realized that the guys and I had a good creative vibe. We wanted to create a classic film score that sounded like nothing else. We started on the music very early and built the soundtrack as we were writing the script and storyboarding and pre-visualizing the movie.”

Continuing, the director explained that the soundtrack was played during the making of the film. “I was very lucky to have tracks play on set while we were shooting. The film was edited when the music had been composed — there’s a connection between the music and the visuals in this film.

Tron, if you are unaware is a 1982 American science fiction film written and directed by Steven Lisberger. The sequel titled Tron: Legacy was directed by Joseph Kosinski was just released on December 17, 2010; it also saw the return of Lisberger, Bridges, and Boxleitner to the franchise and received mixed reviews from critics.
