Chances are good that if you have ears, you have probably heard something Daft Punk was involved in – they are just that influential. However, if you’re still drawing a blank, let me ask you another question: ever see Tron Legacy?
Daft Punk composed all the music for the film and even made a cameo appearance at one point. If you haven’t seen the film, you should look it up on www.direct2tv.com. At least order the soundtrack off iTunes, if nothing else.
Daft Punk is considered by many to be a modern day ELO. That group might be a little before your time so let me break it down for you: ELO or the Electric Light Orchestra had both the ultimate sound and the ultimate show. In many ways, ELO was music from the future played in concerts from the future – at least what people thought of the future in the 70s.
The same goes for the Daft Punk duo. Donning metal helmets with enough electronics and circuitry to make a smartphone envious, they wear human clothing and carry these getups to concerts, giving the impression that they are androids who believe they are human.
While their sound might not be for everyone, you have to remember something. When those masks come on, they are no longer Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, human beings. They are robots putting out music and putting on concerts intended for people and robots from the future.
