Italian musician, a composer of pulsing, synthesized scores for films and a producer of albums showcasing popular artists. Growing up in Ortisei, Morodor quit school at 19 to become a professional musician, moving to Berlin. In 1972, his song "Nachts Schient Die Sonne," made No.1 in the UK charts, sung by Chicory Tip. It was released by Dunhill in the U.S. by Morodor himself and charted at No.46.

After three years in Berlin, he settled in Munich where he met Donna Summer. She recorded some early material of Morodors and his lyricist, Pete Bellotte. When they finally released a hit in France, Morodor sent a copy to Neil Bogart, who introduced "Love to Love You Baby" in the U.S. It was the beginning of a string of electronic pop hits featuring Morodor's innovative use of synthesizers. He won an Oscar with his first film score, "Midnight Express" and another for composing the title song of "Flashdance."
