Whenever I see one of these types of posts or announcements I tend to always come out disappointed, but in this case, I can assure you that Daft Punk’s collaborative piece with DJ Falcon, titled Contact is indeed perfectly synced to one of the closing scenes of Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey. The fit is so striking that one has to wonder whether Daft Punk ultimately made the track with this scene in mind and what significance it has to them. The movie delves into interesting themes, some that have been brought up by Daft Punk themselves in recent interviews. Notions such as the perils of technology and how computers, could intrinsically not convey the emotions that they attempted to channel with their latest album, relaying a sense of irony, coming from robots.
Whatever the case may be, let us know what you think in the comment section below!
