Playing tracks by
Daft Punk, D.O.S. ft Kostantia, Hernan Paredes, Spooky, D.O.P. and more.
Another favorite set of films- the visual ground breaking original TRON (1982) accompanied by Wendy Carlos' electronic soundtrack and more recently TRON Legacy (2010) with Daft Punk's magnum opus.
Mixcloud limits the number of tracks that can be used in a mix from any one artist or album so I used TRON Legacy primarily as a starting point / framework for some of my favorite electronica based tracks. It turned into enough material for two mixes.
The main idea was to be able to play some of the more visually interesting parts of the movies and listen to the mixes as alternate soundtracks.
When electronic synthesizers first gained popular musical use, it was primarily in progressive rock bands like Yes, Genesis and Emerson, Lake and Palmer. Eventually their use migrated over into dance music and I followed along with them. Always looking and listening for new and interesting sounds that had never been heard before- the musical digital frontier.
