Biography

26 April 1940, Ortisei, Val Gardena, Italy. Although Moroder is probably best-known as a pioneer of electronic music and as an instrumental figure in the development of 70s disco music, he has won three Academy Awards and four Golden Globe awards for his film soundtrack work. During a career that began in the late 60s, he has produced the work of some of popular music’s most respected and successful artists, such as Donna Summer, Barbra Streisand, David Bowie, Chaka Khan, Freddie Mercury, Elton John, Blondie, and Janet Jackson among many others. His Oscars were awarded for the Best Original Score for Midnight Express (1979), Best Original Song (1984) for Flashdance with ‘Flashdance … What A Feeling’ (the award was shared with performer Irene Cara and Keith Forsey who wrote the lyrics) and Best Original Song for Top Gun (1986) for ‘Take My Breath Away’ (lyrics by Tom Whitlock and performed by Berlin).
