Interviews to Giorgio Moroder

We try to put together some of the most interesting interviews to music-producer, composer and artist Giorgio Moroder.
Interviews are from magazines and newspapers.

Who is Giorgio Moroder?

Known as the father of disco, Giorgio Moroder is one of the most appreciated, talented and famous music producer and composer of the last 40 years.
Father of the disco-music, Giorgio Moroder produced well known artists like Donna Summer, David Bowie, Blondie, Cher, Limahl, Freddy Mercury, Irene Cara. He wrote award winning songs for movies such as Midnight Express, American Gigolo, Flashdance, Electric Dreams, Neverending Story, Top Gun, Over The Top... and music for many other movies.
3 Academy Awards, 4 golden Globe, several Grammy awards (the last one shared with Donna Summer for the song "Carry On") and hundreds of gold and platinum disks are only some of the many awards he won.

Giorgio Moroder: NME (1978) "LOOK, I tell you something very important. Too many of these writers in the music papers, they are misunderstanding everything. "The disco sound, you must see, is not art or anything so serious. Disco is music for dancing, and I know that the people will always want to dance.
" Also, disco is becoming more and still more popular over the last year. The big American record companies are giving much money to it. This is very good. This makes me very happy, especially when I know that disco is soon to be the soul and R&B sound of today....

Feature Magazine (1979) Although Giorgio Moroder is best known as Donna Summer`s producer, he took that reputation one step further when he conceived the electronically synthesized rhythm track that accompanied Summer on her huge 1978 hit, "I Feel Love." That success eventually led Moroder to apply a similar technique in his widely acclaimed score for the film Midnight Express....

Giorgio Moroder: The New Music (1979) There is a built-in rock snobbism that dismisses all things Disco.
This blinkered view-point is typified by T-shirts emblazoned with "Disco sucks!" This astute observation is usually accompaniede by a feathered felt C.N.E. hat with "Rush" or "Styx" scribbled in sparkle paint on it. An optional jean jacket usually sets off the die-hard and heavy rocker`s outlook with the ball-point appliqued message: "Blue Oyster Cult is God".
Disco is a thing misunderstood....

Giorgio Moroder: Blues and Soul (1980) A little while ago, a giant billboard on Hollywood's Sunset Boulevard, boasted a picture of Giorgio Moroder with a computer replacing his rib-cage.
As well as being an advert for his album-of-the-time (E=MC2), it was also a salute to an extraordinary and talented producer. Subliminally it portrayed the utmost substitution of technology for 'soul' in a trend instigated by him, that affected almost the entire sphere of popular music....

The History of Rock (1984 - 1985) The Eurodisco Phenomenon of the mid to late Seventies was the work of a handful of producers, based mainly in the West German city of Munich, who crafted a sound that sold millions of records all over the world, and took America by storm.
Most of the artists that these producers made famous were actually British or American, although they had in many cases spent years working in Europe. The producers, who closely controlled their artists' material and sometimes the artists themselves, had a Euro-pop background....

Giorgio Moroder: Future Music (1996) Forget punk, my memory of 1976 was my ( rather groovy ) father playing Donna Summer`s Love To Love You Baby.
I only have to hear that bass sound, that repetitive electronic percussion, that groaning and moaning for hair to start to rise on the back of my neck.
