Tron: Legacy is the sequel to 1982’s immensely popular sci-fi title. This time around, the plot revolves around Sam (the son of Jeff Bridges’ original character, played by Garrett Hedlund) entering the digital world in search of his father (and eventually playing in the field against him).
The movie is one of the first ever set to be released in RealD 3D. Hey, is there any single title that would lend itself best to such technology?
And Tron: Legacy’s OST (by French musicians Daft Punk) can already be ordered from this website. You can either buy it in MP3 format for $ 10, or as a physical CD for $ 35. In the second case, you are also getting a Daft Punk poster as part of the package.
The music was an integral part of the appeal of Tron the first time around. It was composed by Wendy Carlos, one of the first synth players ever (she had links with Robert Moog himself). Electronic duo Daft Punk has come up with a respectful score made up of 24 selections. Yet, cuts featuring a large orchestra are included just as in the original Tron OST, and they clash with the electronica like they did way back in 1982. And an actual song by Journey named “Separate Lives” is also featured. (Insert your favorite ’80s joke here.)
Six tracks from the OST can be streamed here for free.
