Giorgio Moroder (RBMA New York 2013 Lecture)

One of the true greats of disco and electronic music at the 2013 Red Bull Music Academy in New York. Peep the info from the RBMA below:

Although Italian by upbringing, Giorgio Moroder did most of his work in Munich and the influence of Düsseldorf’s Kraftwerk can be heard in his work for Donna Summer, which includes two of the ultimate disco anthems, “I Feel Love” and “Love to Love You Baby.” He was also a supreme composer of soundtracks, scoring an unlikely success with the theme from Midnight Express. His footprints are all over British synth pop as well, a connection made explicit with “Together in Electric Dreams,” a 1984 collab with Philip Oakey that remains Moroder’s biggest chart hit.
