Giorgio Moroder:
When I was fifteen, sixteen, when I really started to play the guitar
I definately wanted to become a musician
It was almost impossible because the dream was so big
I didn't see any chance
Because I was living in a little town, I was studying
And when I finally broke away from school
And became a musician, I thought
"Well, I may have a bit of a chance"
Because all I every wanted to do is music
But not only play music, but compose music

"At that time, in Germany, in 1969-70
They already had discotheques
So I would take my car and go to a discotheque
And sing maybe 30 minutes
I think I had about 7-8 songs
I would partially sleep in the car
Because I didn't want to drive home
And that help me for about almost 2 years to survive.
In the beginning, I wanted to do a album
With the sound of the 50s, the sound of the 60s, of the 70s
And then have a sound of the future
And I said, "Wait a second
I know the synthesizer, why don't I use the synthesizer
Which is the sound of the future?"
And I didn't have any idea what to do
But I knew I needed a click so we put a click on the 24 track
Which was then synch to the Moog modular
I knew that it could be a sound of the future
But I didn't realise how much impact it would be

My name is Giovanni Giorgio, but everybody calls me Giorgio

Once you free your mind
About a concept of harmony and music being correct
You can do whatever you want
So nobody told me what to do
And there was no preconception of what to do
