My Newest Obsession: Tron
Theres just certain shit I geek out about
Tron is one of them!
From the soundtrack 2 graffics to the way it was filmed to the actual message in the story of living in a world where we are programed to be subject 2 our "users" only 2 break out the grid.
Its like watching lifes journey in the digital realm...
Seeing this back when I was like 8 then re watching it now with a brand new perspective is AWESOME!!
I even copped the kicks when they dropped like 3 years ago
The inspiration for Tron occurred in 1976 when Steve Lisberger, then an animator of drawings with his own studio, looked at a sample reel from a computer firm called MAGI and saw Pong for the first time.
The background music for Tron was written by pioneer electronic musician Wendy Carlos, who is best-known for her album Switched-On Bach and for the soundtracks to many films, including A Clockwork Orange and The Shining. The music featured a mix of an analog Moog synthesizer and GDS digital synthesizer which I saw Axel using the other day.
Who would have known a Disney film made in 1982 still holds relevance today
