Daft Punk will solidify its place as an historic outfit by contributing an installation to an electronic music exhibit at France's Philharmonie De Paris. The exhibit, titled From Kraftwerk To Daft Punk, is set to run April 9 to early August. 

According to The QuietusDaft's installation is based on the duo's 2005 hit "Technologic" from its third album Human After All. 

When you talk about the true electronic music greats, you talk about Kraftwerk, you bring up Aphex Twin, and you definitely talk about Daft Punk. Since 1997, the French production duo has done nothing but move the genre forward. Each of its four albums was a breakthrough moment in how electronic music was made, what it sounded like and where it was going. Even their choice to don robotic costumes was a harbinger of things to come, and who could ever forget that world-changing pyramid live production?

Kraftwerk is scheduled to perform at the exhibit Thursday to Saturday, Juy 11 to 13. The exhibit will be soundtracked in part by Lauren Garnier and feature synths used by Jean Michel Jarre. Visit the Philharmonie De Paris online.
