Metafilter Podcast Theme - Daft Punk version

June 3, 2015 11:25 AM

Somehow the idea of doing an alternate podcast theme riffing on Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger got into my head a while a go, and here it is.

Did this all in Reason, and had a pretty good time with it. This is a lot shorter than the full Daft Punk song; I managed to scrape this much together in my experimentation but when the original really opens up with the melody/sampler/vocoder hijinks, aping it with my current limited sequencing skillset quickly goes from time-consuming to brain-melting.

It was really interesting trying to work out both the content and technique of the original track, and I'd say I did better on the former than the latter. This is a style of music I like but have never really worked in or paid close attention to the production details of, and as much as I've always liked the song I came to appreciate a great deal more just how much is going on harmonically and structurally in it as a reult of the time I spent putting this together.

So you can finally admit to bring French robots in motorcycle helmets just like we always suspected.

Demiurge is right. This needs a video so badly, with flashy early-1980s effects.

How does this not have more gleeful comments? The MeFi community more broadly needs to hear it!

I was a bit gutted when I realised this wasn't going to be the default podcast theme tune - it's so good!

It'll probably wander back around; I've been hemming and hawing for so many years about doing a new permanent theme and I think it might work better to just get a whole crop up and rotate 'em as I see fit.
