Boris Blank, co-founder and music composer of the Swiss avant-garde electro duo Yello, is also the inventor of the new music/recording app Yellofier. He has just re-mixed The The’s GlobalEyes as part of the launch pack for this new device.
About a year ago, together with concept director Håkan Lidbo, programmer Jonatan Liljedahl and designer Håkan Ullberg, Blank filed to implement the ingenious idea that is Yellofier. Electronic Beats by Telekom supported the team of developers with its expertise in technology and communication and enabled a perfect realization. As a result, from April 1st users can go sound hunting with Yellofier app and create music out of the sounds of one’s life. Innovation, sound and technology – these keywords describe not only the philosophy of Electronic Beats, but also the impressive career of Yello, who are always on the lookout for creative sound combinations.
The slogan: “Anything becomes Music”. But what makes the app so interesting for sound explorers who don’t have any music education?
Håkan Lidbo: “You edit sounds and effects by moving and spinning cubes – the interface is different from all other musical interfaces. Therefore anyone, even without any musical experience, can create unique music with Yellofier.”
Boris Blank: “The uniqueness of Yellofier is in the intuitive, visually supported quick handling of recording and editing of sounds, the high quality sound, the playful aspect and of course the built-in Yello soundbase.” Fans using Yellofier also enjoy maximum feedom to remix the original sounds of the successful duo. They can also share their songs with the social media world.
Other musicians are excited about Yellofier and are already working with the app. Matt Johnson / The The, Booka Shade, Carl Craig, Charles Webster, Håkan Lidbo, Henrik Schwarz, Magnetic North, Orbital, Steve Bug, The Orb, Thomas Fehlmann, Tim & Puma Mimi and Trentemøller have contributed songs and sounds to the app. These could be used for own tracks, and thus enter the Yellofier Track Contest hosted by Electronic Beats.
