Legacy: New High Score

I noticed some of the tracks I was collecting had such a high level of ambience that they provoked a situation and setting in my imagination–almost like a soundtrack. So why not make a DJ mix soundtrack, I thought. A good story needs a lot of different experiences but DJ’ing is often intentionally kept very steadily on the same vibe. So that the mood would have some forced variance I decided to use a real film as a template. Gradually, I came to the point where the DJ mix was created and timed for the film. The film? Tron Legacy.

I chose this film because the rich visuals and peppy pacing made a stimulating experience to work within. The Grid is a perfect setting for the kind of Techno, Electro, and Dubstep I collect. Plus, the fluffy dialog from the vaguely rational plot would barely missed when my custom audio took over. The film was so perfect for my DJ world that, in a sense, it became just another track that I would mix with.

One of the greatest pleasures you get as a DJ is when, by chance, harmonious coincidences occur with the sounds you are overlapping. This mix not only has audio coincidences but visual ones as well. For the most part, I merely chose a track with the right feel for the scene, found a cue point to make it fit the duration and let it go. Very often it miraculously created meaningful sound effects, mood swings, and in some cases, dialog.

If you have the film on disc you should be able to start this mix at the same time as the movie and have everything line up (Hint: the first horizontal light flicker in the Disney logo animation should correspond with the first glitch sound in the mix). If you have Tron Legacy as a video file on your computer, and you are feeling tech-savvy, there are ways to embed this mp3 right into the video file itself.
