    Interstella 5555 The 5tory of the 5ecret 5tar 5ystem (part 2)

    So I did my video essay about this anime, and there are a few musical things I would like to talk about, so I consider this the second part of that video.

    This is an anime film and its soundtrack is the musical album Discovery composed by Daft Punk. As I mentioned in the video, the duo said that they took their childhood as an inspiration for this project. I also said this was important because it is what made them compose around this sci-fi conceptualization related to anime they watched when they were kids (Leiji Matsumoto being a big inspiration for them and also, being part of the team that put together this film).

    They didn’t only work with their childhood hero and produced an anime film which was a criticism to the musical industry, with a thematic and visual treatment related to the anime they watched as kids, but they also did fun things in the music itself. There is a high amount of sampling in the album, they took music from their childhood (once again) and used it for Discovery. This was completely intentional, they didn’t intend to hide this so they openly talk about the samples they used: part of George Duke’s “I Love You More” is featured in “Digital Love”; Edwin Birdsong’s “Cola Bottle Baby” was sampled for “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger”; The Imperials’ song “Can You Imagine” is used for “Crescendolls”; Barry Manilow’s “Who’s Been Sleeping in My Bed” is credited for “Superheroes”, etc. But there’s an interesting twist in this sampling, they didn’t just take the part they wanted and edited or manipulated it to have a new meaning and artistic treatment, actually, most of the times they used someone else’s work, they recorded themselves playing it (for example, on their live dj performances) and use that material on the album. That’s quite exceptional, and it was a form of owning the piece and also give the whole work cohesion in terms of registration and quality. There are a lot of theories of other samples used all around the album, but not all of them are confirmed.

    Besides this, there is also a conceptual weight around this project for Daft Punk, because they stated that, during the recording of the album, there were electronic failures that lead them to become a pair or robots. Since then, they’ve never had a show or an interview without their helmets and costumes, separating their private lives even more from such a famous musical project. Leiji Matsumoto helped them create this visual work around themselves and their music, they actually appear on Interstella briefly.

    I really love how Daft Punk did things, it really made me sad to find out they were splitting up, but I’ll never forget this project and everything around it.

    Concept/idea for a Cody role/movie:

    A young software engineer on her last year of college almost ready to graduate is working on her final presentation. Programming a complete VR experience from scratch. This was her most dedicated project she has made for months now. Everything was almost done, but she feel something was missing, someone to be more specific.

    She knew the VR chat rooms have started to become a popular thing and some people were slowly losing the interest on social contact. Why then, not adding a 3D model of the perfect partner? Someone who can be very attractive physically and emotionally to the person they're interacting with? Be able to do anything you wish with this avatar.?

    Okay, and that's when Cody's character comes to screen.

    He IS the avatar. The perfect one. The one the protagonist has programmed to perfection. She couldn't help but get hypnotized by her creation. He was...perfect. And since she needed to test this VR experience, most nights consisted on laying on her tiny bed with her oculus quest observing the fictional room she created and "meeting" Cody's character.

    Simple talks with the avatar were becoming more profound for both of them and the feelings had started to pop out. She never thought talking with a goddamn avatar will make her feel more honest and comfortable with herself than her family and tiny group of friends. They were good people and cared about her but she didn't feel the connection. But with him? She felt everything she wanted or wished to have.

    The physical part was more explored in them with the touches, kissing and finally sex. She knew nothing of this was real, but she couldn't escape and she didn't want too. So her isolation to the real world happen in just a couple of months before the big day.

    Her family started to worried about her, she never answer most of their calls or even go out to eat with anyone. Cody's character was the only thing keeping her on her room. She was making herself a big damage. But love makes you do unthinkable things. This was real. No matter what other peole will say.

    Maybe this could be something of a sci-fi/drama/toxic love story for me.

    I see Cody's character personality being very flirtatious, caring and affectionate to the protagonist. Because that's what his programm is design to do. He has no real personality but he's not aware of it. He just want to make her creator happy and loved.

    So there's this game.

    So theres this game, Metal Unit, I got and have been playing. Its fandom is small to the point of I'm pretty sure I am the fandom. Anyway, here's some headcanons for the main character, Joanna! I havent finished the game yet so disclaimer that these might change

    Joanna has plenty of nicknames, pretty much all inspired by her name in some way. Most are puns, but a few like Junebug aren't.

    Joanna has always loved mechs. She grew up on plenty of old mecha anime, and sometimes even kaiju. One reason she wanted to be a pilot was because, well, she'd have a mech!

    She's also a gamer.

    Shes lived within crowded cities all her life. Shes heard about sprawling lands of green or cicadas singing, but she, like many others, never got to experience that.

    Shes a lesbian.

    She is a sucker for animals in general.

    She loves it when it rains.

    Another dream job of hers was astronaut. She's always loved the stars.

    She misses her sister

    Welp that's all I got rn. Go play Metal Unit. Its good
