This is the figure behind the Daft Punk robot helmet
Music lovers were shocked when they saw their idol duo, Daft Punk, decided to disband. Even though previously there were rumors that they would appear with The Weeknd at the Super Bowl 2021 event.
When talking about Daft Punk, of course the most memorable is their appearance with robotic helmets. During their 28-year career in the music industry, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo have always been consistent with these helmets.
They also continue to use it when undergoing photo shoots in the media or when attending award events.
According to them, the visual characteristics displayed are something of added value that is always remembered by their music lovers.
When you find out how your magic trick ended, it's really sad. We focus on making illusions because if we leak it it will make people lose their curiosity, "he said.
Then, what exactly is the figure of the two men from Paris behind his helmet? Thomas and Guy are known as individuals who don't really like being photographed. Both felt that there was a different entity when they became Daft Punk with their real person.
"We try to divide between private life and (as) public figures. It's because we are a little ashamed of a lot of things. We don't get into life like the other stars.
"We don't want to be recognized on the streets. (And the result) Yes, everyone is okay with seeing us always with masks (or helmets) in various photos and that makes us happy. Maybe sometimes there are those who are disappointed with it but it is one- the only way we want to do it, "said Thomas Bangalter.
After being formed in 1993, Daft Punk actually still carries an ordinary appearance. Neither of them covered their faces with masks or helmets. As uploaded by one netizen where Thomas and Guy appeared in white and red checkered shirts at an event in 1995.
Around 1997, Daft Punk began to change their appearance and wear strange masks every time they appear. However, at that time they were not consistent and sometimes they did not wear masks at several events.
Now both of them decided to disband after 28 years of staying in the music industry. The news was announced by them through a video entitled Epilog with a duration of 8 minutes which shows the two walking in a desert area. The video is an excerpt from a film they had made in 2006, namely Electroma.
Until now there has been no official statement regarding the reasons for their decision to disband Daft Punk.
Getting to know Kumandra, the World of Fiction in Raya and the Last Dragon
Raya and the Last Dragon is a Princess Disney film whose world is inspired by Southeast Asia. For this film, Walt Disney Animation Studios created a universe called Kumandra.
The name Kumandra is made from Sanskrit. In the film Raya and the Last Dragon, Kumandra was a kingdom that was united in peace. Humans live side by side with the dragons who provide water, rain and peace.
Then came Druun, an evil plague depicted in the form of purple-black smoke spreading across Kumandra. Everything Druun touched turned to stone. The Dragons fight to protect Kumandra. The dragon witness Sisu creates a Dragon Jewel that contains magical powers to repel Druun.
All the humans who turned into stone returned to normal, except for the Dragons. Since then Kumandra has been divided into five distinct areas:
Kumandra is an area in the form of a dragon body that flows rivers from end to end. The heart, as the name suggests, is at the heart of the dragon in Kumandra's map.
Heart is said to be a magical area full of rocks that form natural formations to protect the Dragon Jewel. In creating the Heart in Raya and the Last Dragon area, Walt Disney Animation Studios was inspired by the rocks in Ha Long Bay, Vietnam, and also the longest Mekong River in Southeast Asia.
The location where the Permata Naga is stored in this film is inspired by the Borobudur Temple, Angkor Wat, and Bayon.
The tail is the arid and dry end of Kumandra. Here the rivers reach their end and the water runs thinner. The Tail area is inspired by the deserts typical of Western films. Made very arid to describe loneliness, loneliness, and despair.
The Talon area or Cakar Naga, is in the middle of Kumandra. Consisting of many tributaries, the Talon area is inspired by floating markets on the Mekong River, Vietnam, and the numerous night markets from Thailand to Laus. Talon is the center of buying and selling in Kumandra, performing through night market shots with foods that are familiar to Indonesian audiences.
The Spine or Dragon's spine is said to be in a cold, snowy mountain area. The place is quite isolated and after the Druun attacked the area became even more mysterious. In Kumandra's world, Spine is shown as having many black bamboo trees with red leaves.
The houses here are made of wood and bamboo. Inside their houses are giant spoon and fork hangers inspired by Filipino customs.
Fang or fangs are the most elite area in Kumandra. After the Druun attacked, they protected themselves by isolating the city through water-fed canals. Fang is much more modern than other areas so the buildings are more symmetrical, neat, and luxurious. Soldiers in the Fang area ride Serlot, the figure of a giant cat with sharp fangs and a tongue like a snake.
