Where Love and Escape Does Not Compute

Guess who's back! Everyone's anxious about the new Tron movie. Jeff Bridges returns to this update on the 1982 movie; but more importantly for us, Daft Punk scores the film. Quite apropos too since Wendy Carlos--who's better known for her soundtrack to A Clockwork Orange, and introducing the Moog sound to the general public--scored the first film. Aside from a teaser of a light bike chase from the new movie, not much else has been released so far. Yet everyone's clamoring for the little bits proffered, with a choppy video of a Comic Con Tron display, and possible new Daft Punk material. I like the way it sounds: dark, synthetic and nostalgic of the beginning of the computer era. Below, check out the supposed theme song to Tron and a reworked version by Cryda Luv. Also, click here if you forgot what the old Tron looks like.
