Daft Punk fan? You need to be in Castlecomer, Kilkenny, this weekend

The Soundome is back in action this weekend.

The Soundome is back in action this weekend in Kilkenny with Daft Punk’s Alive and Random Access Memories the featured albums.

Needless to say, you will never have experienced the sounds of Daft Punk quite like this.

Let local inventor Tom Watts tell you all about it…

In chatting with Tom on Tuesday, he outlined the differences to the Pink Floyd show and this weekend’s Daft Punk celebration.

“This is going to be a different show to ‘Dark Side”, says Watts.

“It’s going to hit you. With Pink Floyd and The Dark Side of the Moon, it’s like a listening party. You stand there, take it in.”

“Alive sounds like being there for the iconic 2007 show, and once you feel the thud of bass underfoot – standing still becomes less of an option!”

“Random Access Memories by contrast will help float fans back down to earth.”

“It’s believed Daft Punk’s triangle fixation is related to the shape of a number of their own tracks’ sound waves which form triangles. A theory which Soundome embodies – the mystical relationship between math, sound, geometry and nature’s design”, says Watts.

Daft Punk’s Alive 2007 live album brought together One More Time, Robot Rock, Touch It/Technologic, Around The World/Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger – all the big Daft Punk hits.

Random Access Memories added the likes of Get Lucky, Give Live Back To Music, Lose Yourself to Dance, Contact, Giorgio by Moroder and more.
