Tron: Uprising Soundtrack Set for Digital Release on January 8

January 3, 2013 | Posted by Jeffrey Harris

Walt Disney Records announced today that they will be releasing the soundtrack for the Tron: Uprising TV series based on the Tron movies for a digital download release on January 8, 2013. The soundtrack will feature the original score from the series composed by Joseph Trapanese. It will only be available in the digital format. Besides the 16 tracks provided by Trapanese, the release will also have remixes from the show’s soundtrack by 3OH!3, Opiuo, David Hiller, and a brand new track from Hollywood Records’ rising EDM star, 16-year-old Cole Plante, entitled “Rezolution.”

Trapanese worked with Daft Punk previously on the score for Tron: Legacy. He worked as both arranger and orchestrator for the duo’s music to picture and conveyed their ideas to the orchestra. Daft Punk personally recommended Trapanese to compose the music for the Tron: Uprising show.

Regarding the composition of the show’s soundtrack, Trapanese stated: “The artistic and creative directors of the series worked closely with the writers of the film to create a firm connection to the film while being its own unique, distinct world. That’s where this process was most rewarding, the ability to start with a framework of cool sounds, ideas, and textures, but then take it to the new places that the series went.”

He also went to say: “We had a lot more footage to cover than we had with the film, almost 7 hours. And with animation, we’re not hindered by the limitations of visual effects and real world stunts. The scope can be much bigger. Through the two years of collaboration with Daft Punk, we found a balance of electronics and orchestra that worked very well for The Grid, and I’ve tried to build on that. The remixes for the show are from artists whom I have a great respect for and Cole’s track is added on as his unique, artistic reaction to what we’ve been doing.”

The Tron: Uprising soundtrack is now available for pre-order iTunes and Amazon Disc on Demand.
