Daft Punk Sounds Awesome On An Ancient Chinese Zither

In this video, Michelle Kwan performs Daft Punk’s Derezzed, from the Tron: Legacy soundtrack, on Guzheng.

The Guzheng is an ancient Chinese zither and is a precursor to the koto. Kwan counts Buckethead, John Frusciante, Guns n’ Roses and Daft Punk as influences, and uses guitar pedals with the Guzheng to expand its sonic palette.

  1. baha – also couldn’t help but think of figure skating

    would love to hear a version without the ‘backtrack’
    is the distortion part of her pedal setup? or is that the ‘clashing’ of the two audio tracks?
