Watch: Daft Punk ‘The Collaborators’ Chilly Gonzales


“I don’t really like collaborating,” admits Chilly Gonzales, in the latest edition of Daft Punk’s The Collaborators series. “But you make exceptions for people who are in possession of some true key to the zietgiest.”

The pianist says his main function is to produce harmonies, and when Daft Punk comes calling, the hairs stood up on the back of his neck because, “they don’t really need any help, so when they
ask for help it’s because they’re at such a high level and so advanced…you can ask for help for certain details that are going to make the work transcendent.”
