If you have a couple of hours today, do yourself a favor and watch the interview/lecture Giorgio Moroder gave at the Red Bull Music Academy a few days ago. Since his voice was featured on Daft Punk Random Access Memories track "Giorgio by Moroder", Moroder's name is suddenly seeing the kind of high profile status he hasn't enjoyed in a long time.
The Italian disco legend, whose work in the late 70's and early 80's influenced an entire generation of electronic music, spoke on a variety of topics. From his earliest childhood memories of music to his work with Donna Summer and scoring some of the biggest blockbuster's of the 1980's, Moroder is a pleasure to watch. A true pioneer in the pop world, he's credited with using the first synthesizer in a pop song, Moroder's insight into the early days of electronic music and his big picture theories on the recording process are a must-watch for any music fan.
Beyond just sitting down to talk, later that night he also performed at the RBMA his first ever live DJ set.
