Interstella 5555: The Story Of The Secret System
Daft Punk is the electronic group which has taken techno out of the clubs and given it to the masses across the planet. After their Homework album achieved sale of over 2 million, and having been acclaimed as much by fellow musicians as by their record buying public, the duo, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem Christo, have proved that there are no rules when it comes to success in the music industry. Daft Punk settled on a different method of attack: remaining anonymous or becoming androids, and writing songs that captured the spirit of the moment and blasting their way through the traditional boundaries separating House, Disco, Funk, simultaneously making a series of radical and groundbreaking videos with a raft of leading young directors (Spike Jonze, Michael Gondry, Roman Coppola, Seb Janiak) or directing one of the video (Fresh) starring Spike Jonze among others, and extravagantly staged live shows that held nothing back in terms of spectacle. Aln 1999, Daft Punk released their next album entitled Discovery which produced the hit single One More Time selling more than 5000,000 here in the US. Testament to their constant need to push back the boundaries, Daft Punk then approached Leiji Matsumoto, one of the living gods of Japanese animation, to collaborate on their next audio-visual adventure: Interstella 5555: the 5tory of the 5ecret 5tar 5system: an animated musical film like you've never seen before.
