Music From and Inspired by the Disney XD Animated Television Series Now Available
Walt Disney Records released the soundtrack for TRON: Uprising, the Disney XD animated television series inspired by the films TRON (1982) and TRON: Legacy (2010) on January 8, 2013, and now fans of the series can get a taste of the album with a new, high-tech sampler available on YouTube (view).
The TRON: Uprising soundtrack features the original score from the series composed by Joseph Trapanese and is only available in digital format. In addition to the 16 tracks provided by Trapanese, TRON: Uprising soundtrack also includes remixes from 3OH!3 and J.T., Opiuo, David Hiller, and a brand new track from Hollywood Records' rising EDM star, 16-year-old Cole Plante, entitled "Rezolution."
Trapanese worked in tandem with Daft Punk on the score for TRON: Legacy. Drawing on his background in classical orchestration as well as film scoring, Trapanese functioned as both arranger and orchestrator, arranging the duo's music to picture and conveying their ideas to the orchestra. It was Daft Punk who recommended Trapanese as the composer for TRON: Uprising.
Bridging the gap between 1982's TRON and 2010's TRON: Legacy, composer Joseph Trapanese follows in the footsteps of Wendy Carlos' and Daft Punk's groundbreaking scores with his work on TRON: Uprising. As arranger and orchestrator, his collaboration with Daft Punk on TRON: Legacy resulted in a top 10 album in the US, along with a gold certification for 500,000 units sold. For Uprising, Joseph adapted the original Daft Punk synthesizer patches and sound palette used in TRON: Legacy for Beck's journey in Argon City, paying homage to the film while also broadening the sonic world of The Grid with new instrumentation and color.
Trapanese's cinematic score paints an aural picture that matches TRON: Uprising's futuristic animation. Set in the era of TRON between the stories in the 1982 feature film and Walt Disney Studios' TRON: Legacy, TRON: Uprising delves inside the computer world of The Grid and the people who live there with a visually striking series produced in CG animation with 2D aesthetic. TRON: Uprising starsElijah Wood (Beck), Mandy Moore (Mara), Emmanuelle Chriqui (Paige), and Bruce Boxleitner reprising the role as Tron. Fans of TRON: Uprising will recognize Trapanese's elegantly crafted compositions on the soundtrack.
