The Creators Project, a partnership between Intel and VICE, presents an interview with the legendary synth composer and producer Giorgio Moroder, who discusses his work with Daft Punk in the making of the duo's first studio album in eight years, Random Access Memories. The eight-minute clip begins with Moroder charting the early period of his career -- starting with the moment he "met the synthesizer" -- and continuing to his first brush with Daft Punk (he recounts the impact of hearing "One More Time," his personal favorite). Moroder describes Daft Punk's perfectionist and detail-oriented techniques during the recording process, resulting in something that’s "still dance, still electronic" but imbued with a distinctive human touch.
