As already known, I’m a fan of Daft Punk. Being one since 1997, the sound of Around the World (among other tunes), eletronic beats, and synthesized melodies never stopped being my favorite musical preferences.
In 2003, Interstella 5555 was released. The animation gave Daft Punk’s album, Discovery, a whole new feel, accompanied by the art of japanese studio Toei Animation which set a no-dialog narrative from the first to last track. Amazing.
Now, in 2008, although shorter, that same experience returns. Kap10Kurt‘s “keytar-and-drums digital art” makes it into animation. Produced by french studio Mathematic, the song Danger Seekers, has its own video clip, being already defined as something in between manga and “motion design”. I simply define the combination as sublime…both audio and visually.
