The highly anticipated original motion picture score for TRON: Legacy was composed and produced by the iconic and critically acclaimed Grammy® Award-winning French duo Daft Punk. Having grown up with admiration of Disney’s groundbreaking original 1982 film TRON, Daft Punk took on the scoring of the next chapter of the story with extraordinary thought and precision. The duo assembled a symphony of one hundred world class musicians in London and recorded the orchestra at AIR Lyndhurst Studios, Britain’s premier scoring facility. TRON: Legacy marks Daft Punk’s first film score.
