Electronic music pioneer Giorgio Moroder has joined forces with Novation to release a limited edition synthesiser.
Over an incredible five-decade career, Moroder has been nothing less than a beacon of influence in electronic music. Thanks to his pioneering work in the mid-70s with Donna Summer, among others, disco wouldn't sound the same. In the '80s, his modern approach to producing soundtracks to movies including Scarface, Top Gun and Flashdance—using the synthesiser as his main instrument—captivated a generation of movie fans. More recently, Moroder has shot back into the popular consciousness, thanks to a universally acclaimed collaboration with Daft Punk in 2013, and his 2015 album Djà Vu, which features Britney Spears, Kylie Minogue and Sia as guest artists.
Fascination with electronic sounds is at the heart of Moroder’s collaboration with Novation. The collaboration with Novation came about after he fell in love with the Novation MiniNova, taking it on tour all over the world. With MoroderNova, Novation and Moroder have made a piece of synth history. Not only is it Novation's first signature model, but it's the first and only synth with his name on it.
Instantly-rare, the MoroderNova is a signature digital synthesiser that pays homage to Moroder. Branded with his 'moustache and shades' insignia, and with a distinctive silver/black colourway, the unit is a standout piece of synth heritage.
What's more, there are only 500 of them, each numbered and supplied with a certificate of authenticity.
