|Giorgio Moroder chronology|
From Here to Eternity is a 1977 album composed, produced and performed by Italian musician Giorgio Moroder.
After producing the first disco hit entirely produced with a synthesizer, "I Feel Love", Moroder continued in his collaboration with engineer Robert Wedell in order to create a solo album. In the production credits, it is stated that "only electronic keyboards were used in the making of this album." The first side of the LP is a nonstop dance mix that has been said to influence future generations of house music producers. A number of imaginative electronic effects and processes were employed in the production of the album. Various percussion instruments were recorded through a vocoder. The record also features tapes loops, stereo panning and reversed echo effects, also used on "The Chase" recorded a year later, and on "Now I Need You", a track from the Donna Summer album, Once Upon a Time also from 1977.
Much of the album retained a consistent vibe and sound. The record helped to popularize upbeat, danceable electronica. This musical form would later re-emerge during the mid-1980s as a significant influence on the Hi-NRG genre.
"From Here to Eternity", "First Hand Experience in Second Hand Love" and "I'm Left, You're Right, She's Gone" were all featured in the popular video game Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories on the fictional radio station Flashback FM. Songs from some of Giorgio Moroder's other albums were also featured. In 2012 Giorgio Moroder remixed 'From Here To Eternity' to be played at the Luis Vuitton fashion show.
