Former Daft Punk robot Thomas Bangalter continues to plug himself into the soundtrack world, sharing his score for Chiroptera.

The dance performance of the same name, which features 154 dancers and premiered in the Paris Opera House's forecourt last November, found Bangalter working with artist JR and choreographer Damien Jallet.

Bangalter has also shared an immense amount of music from the project in the form of Chiroptera Matiere Premiere, a single track which runs for nearly six hours. You can find that alongside a video capturing the dancers of Chiroptera below.

Since Daft Punk's breakup, Bangalter has shared orchestral work Mythologies, and scored Mr. Oizo's comedy film about Salvador Dalí. He's also contributed to Gaspar Noé's Climax film soundtrack.
