Tron Legacy [Soundtrack] Daft Punk
Audio CD 

"Daft Punk reinvented film music." That is what write on the press release forwarded by the record company then. Stand up straight away a misunderstanding: NO Daft Punk does not reinvent the soundtrack. Let this be clear between us. It can do to people who have discovered the virtues of BO with "The Dark Knight", but surely not those who address the subject since their childhood ...

Daft Punk has perfectly assimilated the construction of an epic climb. Must say that assisted a hundred musicians the group's vision could be "bigger than life." And therefore influences? They come from just about anywhere. We first thought necessarily Hans Zimmer and his strings "Batmaniennes" clear again, especially that Zimmer already referred to Kraftwerk on the Dark Knight, the loop is closed, or almost.

The second very big influence on the disc is Moroder, "The Godfather" as it is called Sebastien Tellier, The Flynn of his committal necessarily Scarface, but it could be said Carpenter chords and string additions bring us back to that too Giorgio . And then there's this strange melancholy that comes out of the music that transpires Moroder and here too. "Outlander" and brass dry reminds us that Philip Glass to compose one of the best soundtrack creation with Kundun by Martin Scorsese. "Adagio for Tron" and his reference to early violins for his crossing the saddest of Batman Begins Danny Elfmann, through the James Newton Howard heyday of mid-term, to return to Zimmer, and look towards the agreements and tones of John Williams "Schindler's List" at the end of song, phew! Even the shadow Wendy Carlos and Vangelis floats on the whole, it was normal for Carlos to pay tribute to that (not that eh!) Who in 1982 made his masterpiece vanguard of Disney.

It happens like this to influence the other throughout the score. And that's ultimately what Daft Punk does best, get, make the sauce, and honor never pumped her parents. There are obviously two three pieces pure "punkien" (the fantastic "end of line" and the violent and epic "Tron legacy (end titles)" otherwise we would have had the right to be disappointed ...
The great feat of Daft Punk is here: do not make what is expected of them, once again the group goes her head and that's why they need to their success.

Well here is a little "analysis" of a great and wonderful soundtrack, it has to wait to see if the images are the pitch, for my part I doubt not, and as the script is signed boys who wrote Lost, I can sleep peacefully, and you too.

Grammy award winning electronic duo Daft Punk - who takes music as seriously as TRON fans take computer references - is scoring the upcoming film TRON: Legacy. It's no accident that the group's two visionary musicians, Guy-Manuel de Homen-Christo and Thomas Bangalter, are TRON fans too. Having grown up with an admiration for the ground-breaking TRON film in the 80s, Daft Punk took on the scoring of the next chapter of the story with extraordinary thought and precision. The critically acclaimed French duo composed and produced the album. 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.

Daft Punk are an influential electronic dance duo formed by French producers Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo in Paris in 1993. Their music is a fusion of electronic styles including techno, house and disco that has since been described as 'French house'. The duo are protective of their physical identities and are usually depicted wearing masks or with their faces out of focus
