Mogi Grumbles – End Of Line [Original Tron Re-Score]
The title, “End of Line” suggests Tron: Legacy, but Mogi Grumbles has re-scored the original Tron (1982) scores. It’s not Daft Punk, but there’s something nostalgic about the 80s electronic sounds. Take a look.
“Keep it in the Family” by the Welsh band, Hybrid – it is an incredible mixture of strings and electronica. The track came up randomly on Pandora and I have been listening to it on repeat since. A section of it has been used for Frank Miller’s The Spirit‘s trailer, but I reckon this track deserves a film on its own. I don’t know about you, but I have been itching to watch an epic sci-fi film (preferably based in space) ever since I heard this track for the first time. A friend has kindly lent me Danny Boyle’s Sunshine DVD – guess I’ll be watching that this weekend!
Just a quick update. I will post some pictures up soon… I promise.
Despite the fact that pre-Halloween weekend celebrations were taking place all over in Hollywood, I decided to be a nerd and go to the Tron 30th Anniversary event at the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre. The wait outside was annoying but all and all, the event was a success. There were people in costumes, there was the Grid Carpet (as opposed to the red carpet), a panel with the film makers as well as Bruce Boxleitner (Tron/Alan Bradley), a mini exhibition of original Tron goodies and an after party upstairs with arcade games and DJs.
I wish this was real and not Google’s April Fool’s hoax…
