Daft Punk Tron: Legacy Soundtrack 2LP
Daft Punk's Soundtrack to 2010 Film on Double LP!
Tron: Legacy is the soundtrack album to the 2010 film of the same name, released
by Walt Disney Records on December 3, 2010. It is the first film score by French
music duo Daft Punk.
Continuing to exploit their creative urges to their ends, multi-platinum
electronic duo Daft Punk (Guy-Manuel de Homen-Christo and Thomas Bangalter) took
on one of their most ambitious projects to date in 2008, when they agreed to
score the modern remake of the hugely influential 1982 film, Tron. Daft Punk’s
reverence of the original film and the themes that define it (the evolving
relationship between humans and technology, specifically) rendered them
discontented working within the means of their own studio.
“We knew from the start that there was no way we were going to do this film
score with two synthesizers and a drum machine,” stated Guy-Manuel.
The duo assembled a symphony of one hundred world class musicians in London and
recorded the orchestra at AIR Lyndhurst Studios, Britain's premier scoring
facility. They emerged from the studio after two years with a work whose
importance superseded the editing process of the actual film--the movie was cut
to the score, atypically. Tron: Legacy peaked at #4 on the Billboard 200 albums
chart and was awarded with a gold certification for 500,000 units sold shortly
"Encompassing the past, present, and future of sci-fi scores, Tron: Legacy
feels like it grew and mutated from its origins the same way the film's world
did. Without a doubt, it's a game-changer for Daft Punk." -Heather Phares,
