Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter contributes new song 'Sangria' to Gaspar Noé's ‘Climax'
This is the third time Bangalter is working with the Argentine filmmaker. They previously worked together on 2002' 'Irreversible' and 2009's 'Enter the Void'
Thomas Bangalter, one half of the French electronic robot duo Daft Punk has reportedly contributed a new song, 'Sangria' to Gaspar Noé's new controversial horror film 'Climax'.
'Sangria' features in the film alongside Bangalter’s previously released track 'What To Do' and Daft Punk's early hit 'Rollin and Scratchin''. This marks the third time the French robot and Argentine auteur filmmaker have collaborated for the big screen. Bangalter previously provided music for Noé’s 2002 cult film 'Irreversible', as well as his 2009 psychedelic explorative journey, 'Enter the Void.'
Also included in the film are Aphex Twin’s 'Windowlicker,' the Rolling Stones' 'Angie,' Giorgio Moroder’s 'Utopia - Me Giorgio,' and more. Check out the full list below:
According to a highly appreciative review by The Telegraph, Gaspar Noe's 'Climax' "follows a group of dancers on an intensive residential course at a school on the outskirts of Paris, whose post-rehearsal punchbowl is spiked with some unknown hallucinatory substance, bringing on a speedy mass descent into Noéan psychosis. Graphic self-mutilation and orgiastic sex ensue, all captured in the director’s trademark undulating camera moves, punctuated by title cards which offer mottos such as 'death is a unique opportunity', and set to a throbbing backing track of vintage techno, house and electronic music."
Following a premiere at Cannes this past weekend, the controversial horror film will open in theaters September 19 via A24.
