Don’t Miss Out: DYKO Performs at the Goethe!

As part of our Big Career Day – Mit Deutsch Karriere machen where we aim to teach students more about the importance of learning German as a second language and the doors it can open for them on Thursday (more on that on the blog tomorrow!), we have a special event that you just have to be at!

We are so excited to host one of Germany’s best known electro-pop artists, DYKO!



Want to know more about the star of the show? Well, you’re in luck!

DYKO – aka John Barrie Dyke from Melbourne,Australia – is one of the best known German Electro-Pop artists. Devoted to Synthi-Pop und New Wave, he is inspired by artists such as Kraftwerk, David Bowie and Depeche Mode. In his work, he focuses on the development of the sound from that era.

Dyko, who musically and visually reflects his fascination with German everyday-life culture in his very own style of Electro-Pop, sees himself as a cultural ambassador. On stage, he combines his lyrics with graphically abstract and realistic projections. Some of his background visuals are taken from the language course video “Kontakte” (“Contacts”) from the 1970’s, which make his concerts seem partly like a musical German course. The connection of language and visual scenes from “Kontakte” brings about elementary and repetitive text structures, which are easy to understand, especially for learners at the beginners’ level.

This is an event not to be missed by German language students of all ages! Here’s what you need to know:

When: Thursday, October 2nd, 2014
Where: Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta, Auditorium
Time: 6:00pm
Admission: Complimentary

Another big thing you need to know before popping along – if you own a German dictionary you need to bring it with you as it will be part of the performance and we don’t want you to feel left out!
