Computer Disco

Definition

Computer Disco rate
(Adjective) Computer Disco is a type of disco music prevalent in the 1970's and 1980's and ushered forth by the father of disco, Giorgio Moroder, Harold Faltermeyer, Juergen Koppers, G. Mathieson, Keith Forsey, and Donna Summer. Computer Disco was coined by Nico Demonte who identified the prominance of the classic analog sequencer programming and rhythm of the arpeggiating bassline (one-octave basslines or One Octave Major Triad). This movement expressed itself with a Four on the floor drum machine beat, energetic lyrics, E-Series SSL desk, Elka Synthex, Crumar Bit 99 + Bit One, and the 24-track digital machine. Computer Disco influenced many genres including house, Hi-Nrg, Italo disco, and electronica. Many artists in this category use the classic Linn synth drum machine and synthesizers. Computer Disco is in part a resurgence of the Euro-Disco, Chip Wave, and the Hi-Nrg sound.
