Dieter Meier is the legendary voice behind the Swiss electro-pop pioneers Yello, renowned for the 80’s underground hits, ‘Oh Yeah’ (featured in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and, most recently, The Simpsons and South Park) and ‘Race’ (Billboard’s Hot 100). Musician, conceptual artist, experimental filmmaker, professional poker player and organic farmer, Meier is now setting sail to launch the first album of his latest musical project, Out of Chaos. For this sole New York appearance, he sings live electro-chansons in an ‘art-act’ backed by some of today’s best Swiss jazz musicians.
Zürich Meets New York: A Festival of Swiss Ingenuity, May 16-23, 2014, highlights the contemporary relevance of visionary movements and ideas born in Zurich and their impact on American culture.
