Was that really a Daft Punk performance or Pharrel, Stevie Wonder, Nile Rogers and some other musicians. Cause you aren't going to see all of them in a single concert.

The Daft Punk dudes have an important job to do. Pushing fake buttons behind the band isn't as easy as it seems.

Granted it could have been pre-recorded, they do mix on the fly.

To steal the quote on Wikipedia for the Alive 2007 shows.

"The Alive 2007 set used Ableton Live software on "custom made super-computers"[7] for the show. Daft Punk accessed the hardware remotely with Behringer BCR2000 MIDI controllers and JazzMutant Lemur touchscreen pads within the central pyramid. Minimoog Voyager RME[7] units were also implemented for the live performances. The four Voyager units and two Behringer mixers allowed Daft Punk to "mix, shuffle, trigger loops, filter, distort samples, EQ in and out, transpose or destroy and deconstruct synth lines." The majority of the equipment was stored away during the live sets within offstage towers "

You can see them using the Lemur's during their previous Grammy appearance with Kayne.

Alive 2007 is a pretty good album to hear them mashing up and changing their songs live.

Pretty much this.  Alive was a great album and an absolutely awesome event.  But therein lies the issue.  Now Daft Punk needs to take RAM and make their own mash-up/remix album out of it, then tour the world playing THAT set.  Or, since Alive was a mash-up of multiple albums, make an updated set to include the RAM album now and tour again.

Royksopp does electronic way better than these guys ever did.

And I would add that Daft Punk's songs are too repetitive, but that was covered upthread.

Where's the mouse-head thing?
 
2014-01-27 03:47:29 PM  
trivia:  they got their name from a review when these two were in a french guitar-based band (not sure about that part, but i think that's what was printed in a music mag I read) and a negative review said the band's sound resembled "daft punk".  the band dissolved, these two formed their own thing, and borrowed the dismissive reviews's dig as their band name.


I thought their thing with Stevie was farking fantastic.  I said in anothe rthread it reminded me of a Grateful Dead style transition, how they went from their big hit to Stevie's song, which I think was on "Hotter Than July, circa 1983.  seamless.  farking awesome.

You know that's not all that complicated to do, right?

Listened to my LP Herbie Hancock - Sunlight

Kids asked during a song, not really sure, "Dad, is that daft punk?"

Daft Punk is good. So is Royksopp. Would love to see DP tour again. Alive 2007 show on Coney Island was one of the best shows I've ever been to, if not the best.

Daft Punk has kept my 70's disco flashback going strong for nearly a year now.

I didn't say it was complicated, just their live set up allowed them to do that. :)

I'll admit to being the 30 year old "old man" - I don't get it.  It's essentially two guys in Tron outfits playing Atari while their pre-recorded song plays in the background.  How is that any different than Milli Vanilli?

Milli Vanilli weren't musicians and had no part whatsoever in making the music produced by Frank Farian. They were models hired for the stage show and videos.

These guys -- Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter -- are the producers who made the music.

Which basically involves sampling someone else's music, looping it, and filtering it.  Or in the case of "RAM," hiring other musicians to play for them.

I get that people like Daft Punk, but they are so amazingly overrated it's just stupid.

Yes, but Eple was the post-installation music in Mac OS 10.3, so they are to be reviled as a Walmart-hating hipster chai-latte neckbeard band. Daft Punk has never sold out, so they remain a pristine new band full of great ideas and a fresh perspective on the music industry.

BizarreMan: Was that really a Daft Punk performance or Pharrel, Stevie Wonder, Nile Rogers and some other musicians. Cause you aren't going to see all of them in a single concert.


Kinda thought the same thing myself... Hell, they weren't even there for the first 2/3 of the song. Don't get me wrong, it's a catchy song, but I don't really get what they 'do'. At least when someone pointed to a rap act, you could point to the vocals, the DJ and sometimes live music. Here. it really just looks like they push buttons at the right time. Which is cool when you are producing the song, but playing a song you have already recorded, it's like hitting 'play' on iTunes.

On top of that, WTF is THIS supposed to mean?
If you couldn't tell, Daft Punk completely altered their sound board from the alive tour.. New tour coming? Let's hope,

Do they just mean the piece of equipment that was mostly a prop that they were standing behind? People read WAY too much into far too little.
 
2014-01-27 04:36:35 PM  
What amazes me is that with all of people's absolute abhorrent tastes in music, Daft Punk, seems to be one of the few artists that even "those people" can identify with, which is amazing to me since the same people would not even give a second look at anything remotely similar to Daft Punk. They seem to be an anomaly, which is intriguing to me.

They actually play a lot of the instruments on a lot of their songs.  Also, sampling well is freaking hard and it takes a lot of talent to pull it off and not have it sound like crap.  They are making original music, they are just using different kinds of instruments.

Nothing, which is essentially what a ton of DJs are doing nowadays.

Ishkur: You say that like it's a bad thing.


I say it as a matter of fact kind of thing.  I'm more impressed by artists who do their sound design entirely themselves without relying on other people's hooks.
