Omg,…250 tracks in ONE SONG. I am forever in awe of these two. Imagine editing and rearranging 250 tracks for ONE SONG. I like to joke around about these two robots, but the humans behind them are pure and undisputable geniuses.
Sitting at a courtyard picnic table at the Jim Henson Studios in Hollywood, site of their Daft Arts production offices, Bangalter responds thoughtfully to most questions posed to the duo; de Homem-Christo is quieter, less comfortable conversing in English. Both wear basic shirts, ripped jeans and scruffy beards. “We’re like regular blokes,” de Homem-Christo said.
"I think people are really more excited to see the robots than they would be to see ourselves," he added. "It’s like C-3PO or Chewbacca. … I’m a big `Star Wars’ fan but I never wanted to find out who was behind (the characters). And if I did it right now, I would forget his face. It would not interest me. … The robots are far more trippy and opening your imagination than my face or Thomas’ face, and the way we live, which is not even a crazy celebrity lifestyle."

This interview is great, seriously. Here’s another gold snippet(literally gold, actually). Guy, I can tell you, you are correct. As fine as you are, if I saw you or Thomas in person without the masks, I wouldn’t approach you in the same way as if I saw you guys all dressed up, sparkly heeled boots, studded Saint Laurent jackets and all.
