TRON: UPRISING SOUNDTRACK
MUSIC FROM AND INSPIRED BY THE
DISNEY XD ANIMATED TELEVISION SERIES
SET FOR DIGITAL RELEASE ON JANUARY 8, 2013

BURBANK, CA -- December 10, 2012 – Walt Disney Records will release the soundtrack for TRON: Uprising, the Disney XD animated television series inspired by the films TRON (1982) and TRON: Legacy (2010) on January 8, 2013. The TRON: Uprising soundtrack features the original score from the series composed by Joseph Trapanese and will only be available in digital format. In addition to the 16 tracks provided by Trapanese, TRON: Uprising soundtrack also includes remixes from 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 in tandem with Daft Punk on the score for TRON: Legacy. Drawing on his background in classical orchestration as well as film scoring, Trapanese functioned as both arranger and orchestrator, arranging the duo’s music to picture and conveying their ideas to the orchestra. It was Daft Punk who recommended Trapanese as the composer for TRON: Uprising.

Bridging the gap between 1982's “TRON” and 2010's “TRON: Legacy,” composer Joseph Trapanese follows in the footsteps of Wendy Carlos' and Daft Punk's groundbreaking scores with his work on "TRON: Uprising." As arranger and orchestrator he collaborated with Daft Punk on their "TRON: Legacy" soundtrack, a top 10 album in the US and certified gold with over 500,000 units sold. For "Uprising," Joseph adapted the original Daft Punk synthesizer patches and sound palette used in TRON: Legacy for Beck's journey in Argon City, paying homage to the film while also broadening the sonic world of The Grid with new instrumentation and color.

“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," said Trapanese. "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.”

Trapanese’s cinematic score paints an aural picture that matches “TRON: Uprising’s” futuristic animation. Set in the era of “TRON” between the stories in the 1982 feature film and Walt Disney Studios' “TRON: Legacy,” “TRON: Uprising” delves inside the computer world of The Grid and the people who live there with a visually striking series produced in CG animation with 2D aesthetic. “TRON: Uprising” stars Elijah Wood (Beck), Mandy Moore (Mara), Emmanuelle Chriqui (Paige), and Bruce Boxleitner reprising the role as Tron. Fans of TRON: Uprising will recognize Trapanese’s elegantly crafted compositions on the soundtrack.

“We had a lot more footage to cover than we had with the film, almost 7 hours,” says Trapanese. “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.”

A classically trained musician, Trapanese has played the piano and trombone from a young age—including performing at Carnegie Hall with the New York Youth Symphony. He completed his undergraduate work in music composition at the Manhattan School Of Music then continued at UCLA’s Music for Visual Media program for graduate school. Here, he was given the first ever Jerry Goldsmith Award in 2007. Soon after, Trapanese started working on “Dexter” as orchestrator. Since then he has provided arrangements and orchestrations for “Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightening Thief,” “Butter,” “Fast Five,” among numerous other films and television shows.

TRON: Uprising soundtrack is available for pre-order starting December 18, 2012.

Pleased this has been released, I've enjoyed the music I've heard in the series this far. Hes done a great job of capturing Daft punks style.

Just disappointed that its iTunes only. (Yes Ford, continuing the lone voice that hopes/calls for a Wav or ALAC or FLAC option)

That's mind boggling considering how many CD releases of bona fide film score classics struggle to sell 1500-3000 units.

Their definition of "units sold" must include download purchases, but still, wow.

It's not iTunes only, it's available on Amazon CD or MP3:

Nice to see, though I echo the displeasure at a (mostly) iTunes-exclusive release... the Amazon MP3s are US-only, and I'm wary of Amazon CD-Rs on-demand. Are they even produced from a lossless source? And I imagine the longevity is poorer than a pressed CD.

I still hope to see a proper release of the TRON:Legacy score, as the both editions of the CD were woefully incomplete. Perhaps I'll buy this in the hope that throwing more money at TRON music might inspire Intrada to use their Disney connections to finally release a complete TRON:Legacy (if they do, I'll buy 2!)

Thanks Bondo321, good that there is a CD-R option though as TM2-Megatron notes the Amazon releases are only on the US store.

[EDIT]

Likewise, at the moment, the iTunes release appears to be US only. Certainly isn't in the German or UK stores.

Doesn't seem to be available in the UK. Looked on iTunes and Amazon but can't find it. If this is the future of digial release it sucks.

Its the same story with Christophe Beck's Paperman which is only on the US stores (Amazon & iTunes), and they've had weeks now to get that sorted.

Listening to this now on AOL...it is fantastic. Right in the same vein as Daft Punk's Tron Legacy. Going to have to get this for sure!!

They are, or at least every one I know of has been.

I haven't purchased an Amazon CD-R, but I did pick up the Clash of the Titans (2010) CD-R at SAE, and the sound quality is breathtaking. Maybe that was an Amazon-produced CD-R that SAE stocked? I dunno. Anyway, it doesn't sound any different than a pressed CD to me.

Track 14 - "Goodbye Renegade" is a highlight. I believe it's from the climax of Episode 8.

Having heard the score for Tron Uprising, I suspect the reasons I love the score for Tron Legacy might have slightly more to do with Trapanese's influence than Daft Punk's.

I have a feeling the reason why labels who put music on HDtracks aren't doing more might be due to sales. No business I know of will spend time on something if people don't support it.

I own many of them. They are all 16/44.1. I would seriously doubt that Amazon would put out a CD-R that was taken from an MP3.

Every CD I've bought from them is burned using a quality silver disc. They aren't using cheap discs like the ones you buy in Staples.

I have Law Abiding Citizen which I purchased back in 2010. I can say with certainty that the disc plays to perfection and I have a few little marks on the play side of the disc.
