Daft Punk to curate electronic music art exhibit in France
Legendary duo Daft Punk has nothing left to prove musically. Four acclaimed albums, a slew of awards including six Grammys, and the respect and admiration of music lovers across the globe is already quite a resumé. They’ve always been known for undertaking new creative endeavors, including scoring Tron: Legacy in 2010 and working with pop icons The Weeknd and Pharrell in the last few years. Their newest endeavor has just been unveiled: an installation in an electronic music exhibit at the Philharmonie de Paris.
The duo has always made sure to pay homage to the ones who paved the way, featuring synthesizer icon Giorgio Moroder on their most recent album Random Access Memories, and naming a track after him. The installation is also said to feature synthesizers once owned by Jean-Michel Jarre, another French electronic music pioneer.
Running from April 9 to early August, the exhibit is titled From Kraftwerk to Daft Punk, and is based on the anthemic “Technologic” from their 2005 album Human After All. Kraftwerk, the German pioneers of electronic music, are set to perform at the exhibit from July 11 to 13. It’s unclear whether or not Daft Punk will perform at the exhibit at any point, but it’s certain that they have some solid surprises in store.
