"Derezzed" is an instrumental written by Daft Punk for the soundtrack of the motion picture Tron: Legacy, available on the album of the same name. As a pre-order bonus for the album on the iTunes Store, "Derezzed" was released by Walt Disney Records as a single on December 8, 2010. It was remixed by The Glitch Mob and Avicii for the remix albums Tron: Legacy Reconfigured and Dconstructed. "Derezzed" was also included on a 4-track vinyl EP titled Translucence, released by Walt Disney Records.[1]

Music video[edit]

The music video for "Derezzed" was directed by Warren Fu.[2] It begins as Daft Punk enters Flynn Arcade and approaches the ENCOM game called Derezzed. They insert quarters and start playing, with Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo playing as Prog 1 and Thomas Bangalter as Prog 2. The music starts just as Bangalter presses his "start" button. The Derezzed game plays out as a joust with light cycles in the grid. As an indiscernible program watches the joust in the distance, Prog 2 wins the match. In the arcade, de Homem-Christo is disappointed. Back in the grid, Prog 2 is revealed to be Quorra (Olivia Wilde).
