Recreating songs with old floppy disk drives will never get old. Daft Punk, five floppy disk drives and "Derezzed." That's all you need to know to have your mind blown.
Not all do-it-yourself projects are created equal, so when we tell you that this is one of the best original attempts at making a working Daft Punk helmet, what we actually mean is that this is a project only to be undertaken by the samurai tinkerers out there.
You might think that hiring Daft Punk is enough to make a film sound futuristic and "computery." But the makers of Tron Legacy actually faced the same tricky problem that the creators of the original film did: how do you decide what an entirely virtual universe set "inside" silicon computer chips should sound like? Go too natural, and it won't immerse viewers in a unique world; skew too synthetic, and the audience will laugh their way to the exits. Luckily, Disney had enough sense to trust the film's sound design to the alpha geeks at Skywalker Sound, who spent two years sampling everything from vintage synthesizers to real-world motorcycles to create Tron's signature audio effects. (They also got pretty tight with Daft Punk while they were at it.) The brain trust spoke to DVICE to give an inside look at how they updated the soundscape of Tron for 21st century audiences.
Electronica legends Daft Punk did the soundtrack for the upcoming Tron Legacy, and here's the video from the first single, Derezzed.
Disney's released a teaser video featuring some of Daft Punk-heavy soundtrack from Tron Legacy. Now I don't know which I'm more excited for: all the pretty neon lines or the incredible music.
Pioneering electronic group Daft Punk is known for only appearing in public and performing live wearing awesome spaceman helmets. But this homemade version might be even cooler and more futuristic than the originals.
