Daft Punk Tron Legacy Soundtrack

New details and samples of Daft Punk‘s hotly anticipated soundtrack to Tron: Legacy have surfaced online.

One of the more unlikely collaborations in recent years, it sees the French duo provide some seriously hip music to a film released by the studio that gave us Miley Cyrus and The Jonas Brothers.

As a film studio Disney have in recent times increasingly focused on their family friendly cash-cows but Tron: Legacy is something of an exception.

A live-action sequel to the 1982 film about a computer hacker trapped inside a virtual world, it sees Jeff Bridges reprise his role from the original film and Garrett Hedlund play his son.

Directed by Joseph Kosinski, who has carved out a considerable reputation making acclaimed CGI-driven commercials, it is one of the major cinema releases this Christmas.

Kosinski was keen to have Daft Punk compose the film score, saying:

“How could you not at least go to those guys?”

They recorded it with a 100-piece orchestra at AIR Lyndhurst Studios in London and it mixes electronic and orchestral elements.

A teaser trailer for the film featured the duo and showcased the track “Derezzed” from the soundtrack.

On the official Facebook page for the soundtrack, two samples have been posted of ‘Derezzed’ and ‘The Game Has Changed’.

Recently on Radio 1 Annie Mac played the track ‘Tron Legacy (End Titles)’, much to the delight of fans.

David Holmes on Ocean’s Thirteen

David HolmesOcean’s Thirteen is out today and earlier this week I was fortunate enough to meet up with David Holmes who has scored the music for all of the 3 films starring George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon.

Since coming to prominence in the 90s with such acclaimed albums as This Film is Crap Let’s Slash the Seats (1995) and Let’s Get Killed (1997) he came to the attention of director Stephen Soderbergh.

He was then asked to do some music for Out of Sight (1998) and three years later to score the remake of Ocean’s Eleven (2001). That collaboration was so successful that they re-teamed for Ocean’s Twelve (2004) and now Ocean’s Thirteen.

I spoke to David about his work on all three films, what he wanted to achieve with this score and how music from films has been an influence throughout his career.
