Daft Punk will have a new installation based on their 2005 hit ‘Technologic’ in Paris on display from April to August this year.
As part of the Electro: From Kraftwerk to Daft Punk’ exhibition at Philharmonie de Paris, the iconic duo have assembled a display featuring guitars, animatronics, costumes and other objects inspired by the ‘Human After All’ track.
The exhibition explores the broad history of electronic music and also features audiovisual contributions from the likes of Kraftwerk and Jean-Michel Jarre. Legendary French DJ and producer Laurent Garnier has provided 11 mixes to soundtrack for the entire exhibition, which will run from 6th April to 11th August.
The exhibition claims to explore the history of “electro through the discovery of its culture, including its aesthetics, imaginaries, technological innovations, main figureheads, territories and more.”
