Daft Punk - Dazed and Confused (Photo shoot)

A few days ago the French duo Daft Punk gave an exclusive interview to the British magazine Dazed & Confused. The originality of this interview is that the pictures that go with the article have been published in 3D. Just one month before the launch of "Tron legacy" in the U.S., for which they have composed the soundtrack, Daft Punk create once again the buzz around them with a unique photo shoot, directed by Sharif Hamza in Los Angeles. The article consists of 8 shots and has been sold with 3D glasses. We’ve also heard some whispers about a Daft Punk’s world tour...

Recently, the website of Amazon has offered to the Internet users all the samples from the soundtrack in streaming. Moreover, the Tron compilation is already available for pre-order (which I also bought), so we can say that all the noise around the launch of Tron Legacy and its soundtrack, is a marketing strategy that is still continuing...

The interview realized with the manager of the magazine himself, Rod Stanley, follows this marketing logic. If Daft Punk was quiet discreet in the past, "Tron Legacy" has pushed them into another dimension, like marketing superstars, don’t you think? To announce this exclusive interview and these clichés, a teaser video has been released a few days before. It is the one you can see below.

The interview talks mostly about the Tron project and the musical project associated. Daft Punk speak mainly about the integration of the classical music in their compositions. Therefore, we see in this video a piano, a metronome and a violin. Indeed, to achieve the soundtrack of Tron, Daft Punk played with an orchestra of 90 musicians, in London to record the songs.

In this article, that I have unfortunately not been able to find you in a full version, Guy Manuel and Thomas say about this particular soundtrack that "This project is by far the most challenging and complex thing we have ever been involved with". "We are lucky to have had the opportunity to experience some powerful moments artistically over the years, but recording this orchestra was a very intense experience" said Thomas Bangalter.
As for Guy Man, he hopes that these new arrangements of the soundtrack will encourage their fans to immerse themselves in the classical music. "The soul and emotion of [classical music] is so powerful that to like it is so easy – it’s just people think you need to be educated. I thought that myself for a long time, until I had listened to so many kinds of music, that one day I just tried it. But it’s not about learning… It’s about learning that it’s just there" he concluded.

For French guys like me, we will have to wait until February 9 to see Tron Legacy in theaters. In the meantime you can always console yourself by printing the images from the magazine and pre order the album, which will make a perfect gift for Christmas...
