It's like, you know, everybody wants to be in a band. Homem-Christo referred to Screamadelica by Primal Scream as the record that "put everything together" in terms of genre". Like Bob Marleytoo. The least you can do is pay respect to those who are not known and who have influenced people. The sound of their productions—the compression, the sound of the kick drum and Romanthony's voice, the emotion and soul—is part of how we sound today.
For the album, Daft Punk focused on new styles of electronic music. A major inspiration was the Aphex Twin single " Windowlicker ", which was "neither a purely club track nor a very chilled-out, down-tempo relaxation track", according to Bangalter.
As stated by Homem-Christo, "On 'Digital Love' you get this Supertramp vibe on the bridge," which was generated through an in-studio Wurlitzer piano. During a interview, Bangalter named Andy Warhol as one of Daft Punk's early artistic influences.
The music videos for their singles from Homework featured distinctive characters and placed emphasis on storytelling instead of musical performance.
Their outward personas have also changed over time. In one of the duo's earliest magazine appearances, Homem-Christo stated in a Jockey Slut interview that, "We don't want to be photographed. We have a responsibility. Few official photos of the duo's faces exist, including a blurry one found in the Homework liner notes.
In their more visible Discovery years, Daft Punk appeared wearing robotic headgear and metallic gloves for publicity photo shoots, interviews, live shows and music videos. There was an accident in our studio. We were working on our sampler, and at exactly 9: When we regained consciousness, we discovered that we had become robots.
It's the idea of being an average guy with some kind of superpower. It's not about having inhibitions. It's more like an advanced version of glamwhere it's definitely not you. The attire was designed by Hedi Slimane. It's more fun and entertaining for us to do something different, whether it's wearing masks or developing a persona that merges fiction and reality.
We're happy to give back to the masses". With regard to fame and stardom, he said: We want the focus to be on the music. If we have to create an image, it must be an artificial image. That combination hides our physicality and also shows our view of the star system. It is not a compromise. It's just that we're a little bit embarrassed by the whole thing. We don't want to play this star system thing. We don't want to get recognised in the streets.
Everyone has accepted us using masks in photos so far, which makes us happy. Maybe sometimes people are a little bit disappointed but that's the only way we want to do it. We think the music is the most personal thing we can give.
The rest is just about people taking themselves seriously, which is all very boring sometimes. I think people understand what we are doing.

I know many people who maybe like the way we are handling things. People understand that you don't need to be on the covers of magazines with your face to make good music. Painters or other artists, you don't know them but you know what they are doing.
We are very happy that the concept in itself is becoming famous. In France, you speak of Daft Punk and I'm sure millions of people have heard it, but less than a few thousand people know our face—which is the thing we're into.
We control it, but it's not us physically, our persons. We don't want to run into people who are the same age as us, shaking our hand and saying, 'Can I have your autograph? A lot of times when men direct movies about women, they want to make them either all or nothing, you know, a saint or a bitch.
Was it important to you to create a female protagonist who was challenging for an audience? Yes, it was, because I wanted to make her feel authentic and real. To me, I wanted her to be interesting, I wanted her to be compelling. I wanted her not to be totally distasteful! But Smithereens, you developed from your own story. Susan was a movie that came to you.
It changed, once I got involved. At that time she was a little bit more like a hippie traveler. It was more like Diane Keaton, Annie Hall-ish, that kind of a character. And what I thought would be interesting — again, because I was familiar with downtown culture — was to kind of morph it a little bit into the characters I knew, and that I thought could be interesting in that role.
And so the character of Susan changed a little bit, and then certainly when we cast Madonna.
It was like working with Richard Hell in Smithereens. He was a musician, a downtown musician, who had a really interesting presence.
And I thought I could get a good performance out of them by incorporating what was interesting about their persona, and layering that onto the character in the script. And it does involve acting, Richard Hell and Madonna were saying scripted lines, and they were acting. But I felt very comfortable looking at people, seeing what could work cinematically, and then trying to capture that onscreen. I read somewhere that she basically blew up and became a megastar, like while you were shooting.
During the nine weeks we were filming, she went from really relative obscurity — certain musical people in New York in the downtown scene knew who she was, she had like one video on MTV — but suddenly her Like a Virgin album was about to come out, and she got on the cover of Rolling Stone somewhere around the last week or two that we were filming.
Suddenly everything exploded, we went from being able to film on the streets with no security whatsoever, no entourage, no nothing, to suddenly we had crowds of people when we were filming.
It just captures her charisma so beautifully — and in a way that a lot of other movies after tried and failed to do. Why do you think that thing, which you got right off the bat, proved so elusive for other films? It was just something about her as a person, and the qualities that would make her a star later on, that we were able to capture. Which is just a wonderful way to work.
You directed She-Devil starring Meryl Streep and Roseanne Barr, the latter of whom has been in the headlines a bit lately. Yeah, whoa, yeah, that was weird. Well … yes, but I really preface this by saying, I liked her and I liked working with her. So those comments surprised me.
She did have this quality of just blurting out, you know, how she went to the bathroom that morning!
