  • Thomas Bangalter of Daft Punk to first solo album following disbandment


    Almost two years ago, Daft Punk announced they were officially breaking up in a truly bombastic fashion. Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter, apart from their work in the iconic duo, have both offered their services as paramount producers and musicians in other fashions in the past.

    Now, two years hence, Bangalter is releasing his first solo orchestral work,Β Mythologies. It is his first independent orchestral work, initially commissioned by the choreographer Angelin Preljocaj for the ballet of the same name and premiered by the Orchestre National Bordeaux Aquitaine under the direction of Romain Dumas.

    His last traditional solo album, Outrage, came out in 2003, between the releases ofΒ Discovery andΒ Human After All with Guy-Manuel.

    According to the press release β€”

    β€œThe form, the stakes and the creative process involved in Mythologies are all radically different and represent a new stage in Bangalter’s development over the last thirty years of writing, composing and performing music, during which time he has explored the world of technology and the relationship between humankind and machines in his seminal work with Daft Punk. This score does not draw on the resources of electronic music but instead involves the large-scale traditional force of a symphony and, as such, it embraces the history of orchestral ballet music in a gesture that is both personal and collaborative.”
