Electronic innovator Giorgio Moroder worked on the forthcoming Daft Punk album Random Access Memories and today, The Creators Project (a partnership between Intel and VICE) released Episode 1 of a new short-form documentary series. From first glance, it appears that this collection will feature interviews with collaborators on the new record, an output gaining nuclear levels of attention worldwide. Random Access Memories will feature famed American composer Paul Williams, Chic’s Nile Rodgers along with the famed Italian disco producer featured below. Watch the clip as Moroder talks about his work laying disco tracks with Donna Summer (“Love to Love You Baby”) and the experience of going into the studio with Daft Punk for this record (including using three microphones to record – one from the 60s, 70s and modern era).
What the world needs now is not only good dance songs, which I think are out. The world needs something new.
They [Daft Punk] are perfectionists. I remember I would try to find a sound on the vocoder and it would take me 20 minutes, maybe an hour. They told me it took them a week or so only to find the sound and then I don’t know how many days to find the vocals. So I think they are going into every little detail.
