With all the hype beseigning Daft Punk‘s soundtrack to TRON Legacy, far less has been said about the other film currently out with a Daft Punk connection. Thomas Bangalter (the silver robot) collaborated with director Gaspár Noe’s on the soundtrack for his latest film, Enter the Void—a surrealist film about tripping on drugs in Tokyo.
The Quietus reports in an intervew with Noe:
Bangalter was too busy working on The Tron Legacy to compose all of Enter the Void‘s music, instead he gave Noé a palette of drones and ambient sounds to be mixed in, contrapuntally, with a wide range of experimental music, and electronic music from the 60s and 70s, in order to create “a maelstrom of sounds.”
Bangalter previously collaborated with Noe on the soundtrack for the film Irreversible. Enter the Void is currently screening in select cities. No current plans are in place to release the soundtrack, so you might have to hit the theaters.
