Premiering at Paris’ Pompidou Center on Thursday, May 11th, Daft Punk’s never-before-heard song Infinity Repeating featuring Julian Casablancas, was also accompanied by a never-before-seen video. Written and directed by Warren Fu, the animated journey of mankind’s evolution features the work of three animation houses H5 Studio, Picnic Studios, and Light Studios, as well as sound design and mix from Therapy Studios. The full-service post house was "thrilled to come on board to create and explore sounds for the opening and closing of the video” says Therapy Studios EP Margaret Ward after Warren Fu and the Partizan team reached out. “Warren always encourages and pushes me to get even more creative, which always results in the most epic sounds,” says Sound Designer Dillon Cahill of working with the director, and Sound Designer Eddie Kim agrees, echoing how enjoyable working with Warren is, “He’s special and we’re really fortunate.”
Upon first viewing the video, the Therapy audio team wasn’t yet told it belonged to Daft Punk, and Cahill recalls being “blown away by the reveal at the end.” Infinity Repeating will go down in history as Daft Punk’s last music video ever, and Therapy is honored to be a part of it. “This is one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen and we’re going to be a small part of history” remembers Kim. On creating the sounds for the intro and outro, Cahill notes that they “experimented with a few iterations of moments, from a maximal in-your-face robot crash to finally landing on something more minimal like the page flipping that you can hear now” after plenty of collaboration in the room as well as input from the band. The end result is something to “get your attention and ease you into it,” adds Kim, “we wanted to hear the page turning, but didn’t want to hear actual fingertips touching the paper. The most important thing for us was to get you to that state of reminiscing.”
Past collaborations between Therapy Studios and Partizan’s Warren Fu include music videos for Maggie Rogers, A Tribe Called Quest, Gesaffelstein ft Pharrell, Zedd, Doja Cat, Chvches, and The 1975.
