ICA Theatre

Born in Brasil and based in Berlin, Dominique Dillon de Byington alias Dillon has always had a clear vision of her art. She has released two albums which she regards as one body of work, since they tell a coherent story.

In 2016 both albums were brought together in the form of the live album Live at Haus der Berliner Festspiele in which Dillon was accompanied by a women’s choir, which she and her collaborator and co-producer Tamer Fahri Özgönenc arranged in October 2017. This live album will soon be followed by a third studio album titled Kind.

ICA Theatre

Five years since the release of the highly-acclaimed Parergon (Just Music, 2012), Will Dutta’s new studio album bloom sees him reunite with electronic legends Plaid (Warp), Max de Wardener and Manuel Poletti to create exceptionally vivid and sumptuous piano-led compositions.

In bloom LIVE, he casts his unique curatorial eye on reimagining the piano recital. The fluid performance of his music is shaped by temporary connections with club culture, minimalism and more. Luminous visuals and striking stage design results in a compelling, technologically advanced show of untempered colour.
