Daft Punk Creators Project Video Series Features New Album Collaborators [Watch]

Daft Punk have teamed up with the Creators Project for a series of video shorts promoting their forthcoming album ‘Random Access Memories,’ which drops May 21. The French duo reportedly collaborated with a slew of musicians on the disc, including Animal Collective’s Panda Bear, Feist collaborator Chilly Gonzales, Chic’s Nile Rodgers and disco producer Giorgio Moroder, and the video series focuses on the collaborators, starting with Moroder in the first clip.

Moroder (aka Giorgio), best known for his production work in the ’70s with disco legend Donna Summer, was blown away by Daft Punk’s composition standards.

“They are perfectionists,” he says with his awesome Italian accent during the clip, which surfaced today (April 3). “I remember I would try to find a sound on the vocoder [back in the day], and it would take me maybe 20 minutes, maybe an hour. They told me it took them a week or so only to find the sound, and then I don’t know how many days to do the vocals. So I think they’re going into every little detail. If you’re not going into all those details, it’s not going to be successful.”

Moroder also discusses his own his history as a producer, the evolution of the four-on-the-floor dance beat and his recording session with Daft Punk, during which Thomas Bangalter, one-half of the duo, obsessed over the use of various vintage microphones, the differences between which only he could notice. Check out the interview above.
