Stream Giorgio Moroder’s Disco Symphony for Google’s Mobile Racing Game
"Racer" changes in time with in-game action
Italo-disco icon Giorgio Moroder has a penchant for teaming up with tech giants. The super-producer makes an appearance on Daft Punk’s latest LP, the long-awaited (and instantly listenable) Random Access Memories, and now he’s shared a new collaboration with Google.
Moroder has teamed with Google Chrome Experiments to compose “Racer,” the title track to a mobile game for smartphones and tablets. According to the game’s website, players can line up their phones and tablets “to create a race track across up to five screens.” And while they’re squaring off against each other, users can listen to Moroder’s thumping, multifaceted synth symphony, which will reportedly “adjust as [players] accelerate, crash, collide, or slide off the track.” So it’s sort of a learning computer, then, right?
