Tron: Uprising [2013]

Trapanese worked in tandem with Daft Punk on the score for TRON: Legacy. Drawing on his background in classical orchestration as well as film scoring, Trapanese functioned as both arranger and orchestrator, arranging the duo’s music to picture and conveying their ideas to the orchestra. It was Daft Punk who recommended Trapanese as the composer for TRON: Uprising.

Bridging the gap between 1982's “TRON” and 2010's “TRON: Legacy,” composer Joseph Trapanese follows in the footsteps of Wendy Carlos' and Daft Punk's groundbreaking scores with his work on "TRON: Uprising." As arranger and orchestrator he collaborated with Daft Punk on their "TRON: Legacy" soundtrack, a top 10 album in the US and certified gold with over 500,000 units sold. For "Uprising," Joseph adapted the original Daft Punk synthesizer patches and sound palette used in TRON: Legacy for Beck's journey in Argon City, paying homage to the film while also broadening the sonic world of The Grid with new instrumentation and color. 
 
5/5 This is one of those scores that feels and sounds much like the film TRON [2010] and if you are like me you loved it... Now this is a strong moving piece that I will enjoy into the year...

I'll have to let my wife know - she really dug the Legacy soundtrack. And one of those songs was an inspiration for CassaStorm.

The soundtrack for this film was suitably epic, but not overpowering. Great disc Jeremy.
