Digipak CD version. Includes 12-page poster booklet. Dillon presents Live At Haus Der Berliner Festspiele. Recorded at the extraordinary Berlin theater, Haus der Berliner Festspiele. 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. Her two previous albums, This Silence Kills (BPC 244CD/LP, 2011) and The Unknown (BPC 285CD/LP, 2014), told a coherent story and together carried her live shows. Her live shows demonstrate a magical interchange between the dark-melodic songs of both albums. In 2015, she developed a unique concert with a six-piece women's choir for the Berlin Foreign Affairs Festival. The choir 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, held in July 2015. "I felt the need to work with vocals and to create an additional layer that breathes in this space between the electronic music and myself. I was very attracted to this idea, so Tamer and I wrote and arranged the choir parts together," Dillon explains. 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 live recording of the concert reveals just how naturally this new element slots into her dramatically minimal music. "When I started writing my new album The Unknown, I already knew it would be a continuation of This Silence Kills in terms of both music and content. Now the two albums are being brought together as a release, as well as in the live shows. For me, this album could be called 'This Silence Kills The Unknown' ".
