Yello’s Boris Blank has teamed up with Swedish producer Håkan Lidbo for the new Yellofier app, which can turn any sound into music. You can download the five-star-rated Yellofier for free from your appstore throughout the month of April—try it now and enter a competition to win a free trip to Zurich to yellofy the city with Boris Blank.
The Yellofier app by Boris Blank and Swedish producer Håkan Lidbo is less a compositional tool and more a blank canvas that invites the user to hear the world with different ears. By “yellofying” field recordings and turning them into treatable sounds, you can create your own songs, or edit other people’s. To prove that, Lidbo and Blank invite you to submit either your own song or to twist and tweak preset tracks by acclaimed artists such as Booka Shade, Carl Craig, Henrik Schwarz, Matt Johnson, Orbital, The Orb, Trentemøller, and more. The submissions compete for a flight to Zurich to spend a day with Boris Blank yellofying the Swiss capital. The winning song, chosen by public vote on yellofier.com, will also be released on the next Electronic Beats compilation. Go to Yellofier.com for details and to enter.
