daft punk homework

We could garnish our music with a lot of sounds that fills no purpose. Then people wouldn’t complain about it being monotonous. But it’s the monotony that gives the songs their power. A “ta-ta-ta-tam” played over and over again never sounds exactly the same. The brain perceives it differently each time. The arrangements that we put effort into does not appear until you have gotten into the rhythm properly.
—  Thomas Bangalter (Daft Punk)

exactly 10 years ago today, on 29th of April 2006, T. Bangalter & G.M. de Homem-Christo of Daft Punk debuted with their pyramid setup for the first time on Coachella and changed the landscape of electronic music forever. I think that this was some kind of blessing and I lowkey hope that they will come back this/next year with 20 years of Alive tour (1997 - 2007 - 2017)


Daft Punk’s commentary on their video for Fresh, from the D.A.F.T. DVD.

Thomas: “We were pretty apprehensive but it was quite an experience. The day of the shoot was the most stressful day of my life.”
