On the latest Daft Punk collaborator video, Chilly Gonzales took part.

He explains that Daft Punk are "…a very warm, familiar group despite their mysterious image – every musician feels an emotional connection to them and we always have the feeling that they're ahead of us. They don't really need any help."

Gonzales says that he was bought in to assist the duo with melody.

"Despite not having trained so much harmonically, they clearly realise that harmony has that power and it was very exciting to me," he said. "I have a real love for the mathematics of music – I think they knew that about me, and that was their way of trying to use me in a really appropriate way."

He continues: "One of the main specific things they asked me to do was build a musical bridge between a block of songs that were in A minor and there was another block of tracks that are in B flat minor or major… you literally hear that kind of key change in lots of power ballads… like a Barry Manilow song."
