Daft Punk Vs. Quorra on the game grid!

So, this is the official music video for Daft Punk’s ‘Derezzed’ from their Tron: Legacy soundtrack.

And I love it, it’s quite a nice little prequel to the movie, the style and graphics being part original Tron and part Tron: Legacy, It’s obviously set inbetween movies. The plot seems to feature Olivia Wilde’s character, Quorra, while she was still a player on the game grid.

If you’re going to make a movie tie-in video having both a nice little tie in plot and loads of homagé to the original Tron is a good way to go.

Tron: Legacy hit cinemas 17th December, not long now! Who gonna’ be there opening day?

Tron: Legacy projection mapping performance to Daft Punk’s soundtrack

Projection Mapping is an awesome looking technique where images are projected onto a the flat surface of a building to make it appear 3D stuff is happening.

This technique has been put to it’s full use in a 9 minute Tron: Legacy show on the side of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in London set to Daft Punk’s stunning soundtrack.

Give it a watch!

The performance was created using 6x18k projectors with audio from an 8k D&B sound rig.

Tron: Legacy hit cinemas 17th December, seems like so long to wait! Daft Punk’s soundtrack is released tomorrow!

Daft Punk – Tron music video

Well, part music video, part promo reel, part Tron Legacy trailer set to Daft Punk’s soundtrack piece ‘Derezzed’.

What we’ve heard of the soundtrack so far sounds amazing and this video, not only features loads of new footage from the movie, but also give us our first on-screen glimpse of Guy and Thomas in their roles as ‘mp3 files’ (read DJs) in the movie.

I love the way the soundtrack had lots of contemporary action movie signatures, but weaving in and out of them are phrases of analog synths or distorted drums, seems like a perfect blend of score and electronics.

Tron: Legacy hit cinemas 17th December. Both the movie and Daft Punk’s soundtrack are so highly anticipated here it’s not even funny. December can’t come soon enough!

Daft Punk in Tron Legacy; official music and photo

So, after many false starts and fakes (although the last batch of leaked tracks I was sent seem to have turned out to be real) we finally have an officially released piece from Daft Punk’s Tron Legacy soundtrack and also a first look at how Guy and Thomas will look in their roles as ‘mp3 files’ (read DJs) in the movie.

New Tron Legacy trailer: Daft Punk’s soundtrack?

Tron fans following the viral marketing campaign promoting the upcoming sequel to 1982’s Tron, Tron Legacy, have unlocked a secret site at http://www.program-glitch-esc.net/ that has HD version of the new, second, trailer ahead of it’s ‘proper’ online début later this week.

Looks pretty fantastic, no? And is that Daft Punk’s soundtrack we can hear in the second half of the trailer? Pulsing synths, distorted drums, sounds good to me!

Being actually in the trailer, I pretty sure we can assume it’s not a fake this time! 😉

Demo track from Daft Punk’s Tron Legacy Soundtrack?

This broke over at the Daft World fansite, apparently this is a leaked demo of one of the tracks from Daft Punk’s Tron Legacy soundtrack:

Daft Punk – Fragile (Demo.) (zShare) (MediaFire)

Real? We don’t know. It does sound like what you’d expect a Daft Punk Tron soundtrack to sound like. Whatever it is, fake or not, it’s actually pretty good and if it is from the soundtrack then it’s probably even better in the context of whatever scene it accompanies.

What do you think?

–UPDATE–: Thomas Bangalter has confirmed it’s a fake. Hardly surprising really, I doubt we’ll hear any of the soundtrack until it come’s out. Still think it’s a cool little piece of music though!
