Few artists come close to the importance of Kraftwerk or Daft Punk in bringing electronic music to the masses and popularizing it beyond the dark warehouses of the underground rave days. Between the Düsseldorf natives’ iconic synthesizer style and live shows, and the masked Frenchmen’s contribution to stage design, aesthetic, and branding, the two acts have paved the way for many of today’s top DJ/producers/artists.

Now, due to their influence, both groups will be featured in a new exhibit at the Paris Philharmonic in France, held April 9- August 11.

Daft Punk’s exhibition will revolve around their 2005 hit song “Technologic,” in a setting conceptualized by the duo’s Thomas Banglater and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and will contain “mannequins, costumes, helmets, guitars, screen, animatronics, and wooden decor,” as the elements present in the track’s music video. Kraftwerk, on the other hand, will offer three concert dates and an audio-visual animation made specifically for the occasion.

According to the event’s website, “Instruments, sculptures, photographs… installations… and multiprojections punctuate a course that also summons the main figures, musicians, DJs and inventors who have brought the ideal vitalist, visionary or futuristic electronic music, including Kraftwerk, Jean-Michel Jarre, Robert Moog, Daft Punk, or Juan Atkins.” Full information on the affair can be found here.
