Despite the success of electronic music pioneers like Kraftwerk and Giorgio Moroder, back in 1979 working in a studio filled with synthesizers was still a novelty. Here’s a vintage video of Moroder, which was shot to promote his album E=MC2. It shows him working in his studio, explaining his workflow and using a vocoder while the narrator sounds baffled by all the studio tricknology and electronic wizardry: “If there is a limit to computerizing music he hasn’t found it yet, but he’s looking, and looking in places where only a special kind of imagination can take you.”
