The duo composed the soundtrack for the 2010 Walt Disney Pictures film Tron: Legacy, with their score arranged and orchestrated by Joseph Trapanese. The duo collaborated with him for two years on the score, from pre-production to completion. The score features an 85-piece orchestra, recorded at AIR Lyndhurst Studios in London. Joseph Kosinski, director of Tron: Legacy, referred to the score as being a mixture of orchestral and electronic elements. Daft Punk also make a cameo appearance as disc jockey programs wearing modified versions of their trademark robot masks within the film's virtual world. The soundtrack album of the film was released on December 6, 2010. A deluxe 2-disc edition of the album was also released that includes a poster of the duo from the film. Additional bonus tracks are also available through various online vendors. An official music video for "Derezzed" also premiered on the MTV Networks on the same day the album was released. The video was later made available for purchase from the iTunes Store.
