This week, Disney shared a listen to the soundtrack for Tron: Legacy, composed by Grammy award winning electronic duo Daft Punk. Frenchmen Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter pump up the bass for Tron’s long-in-development sequel. The duo’s sound and look screams retro-futurism – and they fit right into the Tron: Legacy universe.
According to Amazon, the 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, assembling a symphony of one hundred world class musicians in London and recorded the orchestra at AIR Lyndhurst Studios, Britain’s premier scoring facility.
Tron: Legacy hits theaters on December 17, 2010. The Tron: Legacy Soundtrack album hits on December 7th.
