Inside Daft Punk’s Pyramid

April 3rd, 2008

One of the reasons Daft Punk has had maintained a level longevity not seen among their peers is the popularity of their live shows, which offer insanely cool visuals and a striking pyramid in the middle of the stage. Live performances of electronic music can be quite boring to be brutally honest — you never know if the performer is actually composing/remixing music on the fly or just checking email when they’re up on stage with a PowerBook. But Daft Punk does perform live for the most part with two Ethernet connected touch screens, four analog Moog synths, and cheapo dual MIDI controllers. I think people who don’t really know anything about how electronic music is made don’t care what those guys are doing up there in the pyramid since they’re just at the show for a fun experience. But what kills me is these guys do an entire set in leather jumpsuits and heavy robot helmets. I’m always looking for some kind of cooling tubing snaking up the side of their outfits, but I think the just power through a set and suffer the prolonged discomfort. If I could ask those Daft Punk just one question, it would be about what it’s like wearing those outfits all the time. To see the pryamid in action, go here or here.
