There is no denying the subtle and blatant impact Daft Punk has had on the electronic music scene. While we love and cherish their music, we cannot fully understand the depth that goes into creating the works of art they produce. With that said, fans around the world have worked tirelessly to understand the true meaning behind some of Daft Punk’s greatest hits.
While going through Daft Punk’s last album, Youtube user dj200423 discovered something amazing about the track “Contact”. Dj200423 decided to play the track over the end segment of the sci-fi movie, 2001: A Space Odyssey.
“On a whim, I tried playing Contact against the end segment of 2001 and it synced up flawlessly. The film and song aren’t edited in any way, they both play out in full duration. It’s incredible how well they match.”
Although this video is old, it does not deter from the awesomeness that is this discovery. “Contact” is such an uncanny pairing with 2001: A Space Odyssey that you can’t help but wonder, did Daft Punk do it on purpose?
