Musique Vol. 1 1993-2005

Musique Vol. 1 1993-2005
by Daft Punk [Compact Disc 781.66 Daf]

This collection of music from (or incorporating) the Grammy-winning French techno/house duo Daft Punk has elements of new wave, funk, disco, pop and rap. I especially like tracks 7-12, including the charmingly digital-age themed "Technologic". Known as much for their visual artistry as their aural output, they also composed and performed the score for the 2010 science fiction film Tron: Legacy. A new album is expected to be released in May 2013, possibly featuring some collaboration with singer/songwriter/actor Paul Williams, an Omaha native. [If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try TRON: Legacy - original motion picture soundtrack; Tron: Legacy [dvd]; Homework [album].] -- recommended by Becky W.C. - Walt Branch Library
