About Boris Blank

Swiss-born musician Boris Blank is an electronic-based composer, arranger, and producer best known as founder of the electropop group Yello. Yello's distinctive, arty, high-concept sound, paired with the group's innovative music videos, garnered them critical acclaim throughout the '80s and '90s. Most notably, the group's song "Oh Yeah," off 1984's Stella, became a huge hit and pop culture touchstone after it was featured in the 1986 John Hughes comedy film Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Away from Yello, Blank has recorded music for commercial use under the name Avant Garden, several volumes of which were released on Extreme Music beginning in 2012. In 2014, Blank collaborated with Malawian singer Malia on the jazz and electro-themed Convergence. ~ Matt Collar
