As a member of the Swiss cult band Yello, Boris Blank has been shaping the development of electronic music for over four decades. Even as an established solo artist, the sound visionary has anchored his unchanging DNA in global pop culture, which is still regularly quoted by modern acts today.
With “Resonance”, Boris Blank is now releasing his third studio album, on which he defies the laws of space and time with a weightless fusion of ambient, trance and electro! The twelve tracks on “Resonance” were originally commissioned for the FORTYSEVEN thermal spa near Zurich, designed by Swiss star architect Mario Botta.
Stefan Bock and Stefan Zaradić from IAN Records used the “Spatial Sound Wave” system developed by the internationally renowned Fraunhofer Institute to create an elaborately staged 3D soundscape with meditative sounds for wellness and relaxation.
A completely new challenge for the notorious sound researcher, who enters previously undiscovered ambient worlds on his new album. “I‘ve always had a great affinity for wide open spaces like factory floors, underground garages or even the mountains – and to the acoustic resonance that these spaces create,” says Boris Blank about the inspiration for “Resonance”. “Every space has its own unique vibrations. It appeals to me to enter these spheres and make them perceptible with the help of music. The bigger, the more interesting. My goal this time was to make the spaces as big and wide as possible.”
