The Paris Philharmonic has announced a new immersive exhibition showcasing several electronic music pioneers, including Daft Punk, Kraftwerk, and more. The exhibition, Electro: From Kraftwerk to Daft Punk will take place in the French capital for a four-month run from April 6th, to August 11th this year.
The exhibition promises an immersive experience set to music by Laurent Garnier. Featuring animatronics, detailed costumes and set designs, and more, their stated mission is to catalog the growth of dance music from its underground club roots to the mainstream consciousness.
Daft Punk's installation will specifically surround their 2005 track "Technologic", from their album Human After All. According to French magazine Tsugi, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo themselves will be consulting with organizers personally to help develop the experience. Kraftwerk will also be performing three shows at the Philharmonie de Paris on July 11th-13th in support of the exhibit.
In addition to Kraftwerk and Daft Punk, Electro will reportedly feature numerous vital contributors to electronic music including Jean-Michel Jarre, Robert Moog, Juan Atkins, among other key pioneers.
The exhibition is set to cover 8,000 square feet and will feature 11 exclusive mixes prepared for the event by Laurent Garnier. Check out more on Electro via the Paris Philharmonic website.
