Hypnotisch sanft, ehrlich und zerbrechlich, nicht von dieser Welt. Dominique Dillon de Byington ist die Art Künstlerin, der niemand länger als ein paar Minuten widerstehen kann.

Dillon

Singer-Songwriter / Electronic

Born in Brazil, raised in Cologne and based in Berlin, Dominique Dillon de Byington, aka Dillon, has always had a clear vision of her art. She already has three albums under her belt, and she actually regards these as part of the same work, since they tell a coherent story. This has always been apparent in her live shows, which are carried by a magical interchange between the dark-melodic songs of her albums. When the Berlin Foreign Affairs Festival asked her, in 2015, to develop a unique concert idea, she decided on a performance with a six-piece women’s choir, which accompanied her and Tamer Fahri Özgönenc, her collaborator and co-producer of her first two albums, in the live performance at the Haus der Berliner Festspiele in July 2015. The choir injects a new physical layer into her music, which is dominated by piano and electronic sounds, and her own voice dances longingly in this space. The released live recording of the concert reveals just how naturally this element slots into her dramatically minimal music. In 2017 Dillon released her third studio album, which Dillon herself describes as an "album of love".
