From the birth of synth-based disco to canonisation by Daft Punk, Giorgio Moroder bestrides the history of dance music like an arpeggiating cyborg colossus. However, alongside his musical achievements someone clearly thought there was something of the architect about Moroder. So much so that, some years back, a mysterious Dubai-based corporation asked him to design a pyramid to grace the Dubai skyline. Details are sketchy and the story is alluded to fleetingly in interviews with the great man but, what with one thing and another, the project never left the blueprint stage.
Curated by Simon Coates, the Giorgio Moroder’s Pyramid exhibition continues the conversation and includes specially commissioned work that imagines what the pyramid would have looked like had it been built. Featuring Harold Faltermeyer, Lucky PDF, Shusei Nagaoka, Ghada Da, Veronika Hauer, The Broca Ensemble, Andreas Heller and Andy Buchan.
