From Carlos to Punk - The Tron soundtrack

28 years ago a well respected electronic music pioneer was asked to do the original Tron soundtrack.  This is of course Wendy Carlos who is probably better known for the soundtracks of Clockwork Orange and The Shining.  Now fast forward to today, 2010, and a ground-breaking electronic music group is given the chance to write, and perform, the music for the sequel ... I give you Daft Punk and the below music video.

TRON: LEGACY is a high-tech 3D adventure set in a digital world unlike anything ever captured on the big screen. Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund), a rebellious 27-year-old, is haunted by the mysterious disappearance of his father Kevin Flynn (Oscar®-winner Jeff Bridges), a man once known as the world’s leading video-game developer. When Sam investigates a strange signal sent to the old Flynn’s Arcade – a signal that could only have come from his father – he finds himself pulled into a digital world where his father has been trapped for 20 years. With the help of a fearless warrior, Quorra (Olivia Wilde), father and son embark on a life-or-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe, created by Kevin himself, which has become far more advanced with never-before-imagined vehicles, weapons and landscapes, and a ruthless villain who will stop at nothing to prevent their escape
