Yellofier is a new (and free) music app for iPhone that was invented by Boris Blank, co-founder of legendary avant-garde electro duo Yello. In the 80s, Boris Blank and Dieter Meier of Yello were responsible for groundbreaking songs like ´The Race´, ´Oh Yeah´ and ´Bostisch´ and many others.
Together with concept director Håkan Lidbo from Stockholm they created Yellofier. Perhaps you know Håkan from our ´Music from the Future´ interview back in 2011. He was the person who sent music to space and has done several crazy but cool projects on the side :)
The idea of the Yellofier app is pretty simple. It makes anything (such as your voice, a musical instrument or any other sound) into groovy music. By moving coloured blocks you can edit the sound and apply effects.
Create unique music with your own sounds and with the sounds of Yello´s original engineer Boris Blank. The Yellofier app also includes sounds and exclusive tracks by Henrik Schwarz, Trentemøller, Orbital, Booka Shade and more.
There's currently a contest running until 1st of June 2013 where they look for the best Yellofier track, rework, remix, whatever. Winner gets a flight to Zurich to spend a day with Boris Blank yellofiering the whole city. Pretty cool eh?
