The Philharmonie de Paris presents ‘From Kraftwerk to Daft Punk’, a major exhibition on electronic music through the exploration of its imagination, innovations, mythologies and its correlations with the visual arts.
Featuring a soundtrack mixed by renowned DJ Laurent Garnier, who created eleven thirty-minute mixes for the exhibition, – telling the story of dance music from New York disco in the 1970s to the futuristic techno of the 2010s – it’s firmly anchored in the present. The itinerary is the product of creative input and engagement from a number of the musicians involved: Kraftwerk, Daft Punk, Jean-Michel Jarre, Jacques and Molécule all appropriated the exhibition as a testing ground for their concepts and ideas.
Through an amazing sound & design experience, Kraftwerk created a series of videos for the exhibition that are projected in 3D and broadcast using spatialized sound. Jean-Michel Jarre conceived an “imaginary studio” from his personal collection of rare synthesizers, paying tribute to the revolutionary technologies that accompanied him throughout his career. Also, the most famous robots in the electro scene, Daft Punk, present Technologic Redux (2019), an installation inspired by the Technologic video (2005), along with images offering glimpses into the secret fabrication of this universe. And many more to discover…
To celebrate the exhibition, a free after-show is planned with sizes in the field, we let you discover the programm above.
