Happy Birthday To The Father Of Disco, Giorgio Moroder

Today Giorgio Moroder turns 73.  Even if you don't recognize the name, chances are you are familiar with Moroder's prolific and widely influential works.  From his 1970's disco hits with Donna Summer (Love To Love You Baby & I Feel Love) to his sonic contributions that defined an entire era of film in the 1980's (Scarface, Top Gun, Flashdance, The Never Ending Story), Giorgio's music has had a lasting impact.

One of the first artists to create and compose almost exclusively using electronic and sequenced means, Giorgio began a movement steeped in synthesizers and drum machines that has propelled electronic dance music through the decades.  Most recently, Moroder collaborated with progressive French dance duo Daft Punk on their new album, Random Access Memories.

Happy 73rd Giorgio!

Love,

Your friends at Moog.

Print on demand is a printing technology and business process in which new copies of a book (or other document) are not printed until an order has been received, which means books can be printed one at a time. While build to order has been an established business model in many other industries, "print on demand" developed only after digital printing began, because it was not economical to print single copies using traditional printing technology such as letterpress and offset printing. Many traditional small presses have replaced their traditional printing equipment with POD equipment or contract their printing out to POD service providers. Many academic publishers, including university presses, use POD services to maintain a large backlist; some even use POD for all of their publications. Larger publishers may use POD in special circumstances, such as reprinting older titles that are out of print or for performing test marketing.
