Biography

Dieter Meier was born in Zurich, Switzerland, in 1945. He is the founder of the most successful modern-music group ever to come out of Switzerland – Yello. Formed in 1979, in collaboration with Boris Blank, Yello has produced 15 acclaimed albums and their soundtracks have accompanied not only American Football on TV but blockbuster movies including “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” and Michael J Fox’s “Secret of my Success”.

The two artists are considered the pioneers of electronic dance music and enjoy worldwide commercial success. Yello’s groundbreaking electronic music is sampled by commercial TV sales campaigns worldwide, making them one of the most prolific producers of music for the visual industries. Known for the dazzling visual style in his many music videos, Dieter Meier has collected a variety of honours for his directing and writing.

In addition to his activities in music and film, Dieter Meier is a partner in Euphonix, Palo Alto, a leading company for digital mixing consoles for film and television postproduction, and a producer and brander of organic commodities in Argentina (“Ojo de Agua”).
