iOS Music apps are a lot of fun. Finally there’s immediacy while working with software, something what’s much harder to find in standalone music applications.
I recently played with an app called Yellofier, co-designed by Boris Blank from the iconic Swiss electronic duo Yello. And below you can find a demo track created purely with the app – written and produced on an iPad and featuring vocals of 13 months old Olivia Milla and Yellofier’s samples.
I grew up on Yello’s music and it’s been also a huge inspiration when working on various Philosophy Of Sound and Koshowko tracks in the past.
Yellofier is a 4 track pattern sequencer and working with the app was so much fun as it feels extremely intuitive. Apart from being a good creative tool, Yellofier is also very good at engaging the right side of the brain which is best at expressive and creative tasks. That’s my little theory anyway…
One of those gigs last night where the band is rocking, the crowd is loving it, everyone’s dancing and cheering, you lift and lift and off everyone goes on a voyage of love, indie dance and good times. Even the temperamental drum machine was in a good mood, and we found a nice acid house style lead patch for the synth.
Played amongst a post punk indie rock band (Dark Arts) – (thanks for lending us the drum stick guys!), a dubstep duo with MPC’s doing some flying lotus style stuff (Willow Beats), a heavily textured 5 piece with violin, electronic and rock instruments (Tantrums), and Dj’s (New York Cats, Victory Team, Bo!kot) spinning a bunch of different styles, culminating in us leaving to a guy that seemed to be playing anything goes acid house crossed with so many other dance genres. Culture clash is back! Thank goodness the rules of what a party should be and music should be are out the window. Crowd was the most diverse we have seen in a long time, yet super friendly. This is where things get interesting. Get amongst it Melbourne!! Enjoy yourselves, go see a band. This is a good time to be part of the music scene. Thanks heaps to DTS Hates You and Everguide for putting the party together!
