Daft Punk Random Access Memories Episode 1: Giorgio Moroder

So Daft Punk is finally back, and this is apparently there first of multiple episodes to come featuring legendary composers/songwriters and speaking on their behalf. Giorgio Moroder essentially breaks it down for the viewers at the end of the video: The reason Daft Punk has been gone for so long is due to the fact that Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo are so detail oriented that it takes them weeks just to find the sound they need some times. They even record with 3 different microphones (from the 60s, 70s, and today) even though none of us could tell the difference, apparently they can.

So what have they really been doing? IT HAS HAPPENED. They have finally bridged the gap, between real music and music made on computers. It’s still electronic, but it now has the human touch, because they used real instruments.

Bravo, Daft Punk, Bravo.
