I cant think of any connection between "Tron Legacy" and the compositions of Herrmann and Steiner, but the connection with Maurice Jarre may be valid, since the French Maesto composed many Synth-Scores from the early 80s onwards (in the same era that saw the rise of Faltermeyer and Fiedel).
To name a few:
- The Year Of Living Dangerously
- Enemy Mine
- The Mosquito Coast
- Fatal Attraction
- Gorillas in the Mist
- Dead Poets Society
- Jacobs Ladder
- Shadows of the Wolf
Some of them were partly electronic, partly orchestral, like "Enemy Mine". Arguably, I found the orchestral parts of these Scores more impressive and the electronic elements kinda dated and hard to get into (exept "Jacobs Ladder" which effectively created an cold, unsettling and alien atmosphere) but at least I understand why Jarre is mentioned in the booklet.
