Tillman Dehnhard (1968) is a well-known German flutist, composer and educator. He studied flute and saxophone at the Universität der Künste in Berlin, where he still lives, working as a freelance musician and composer.
Next to his own musical formations he has performed with various musicians of various genres: Sam Rivers, Till Brönner, Robbie Williams und Cindy Lauper. His performance starts with an almost unnoticed pulse, rhythm or endless drone: he simultaneously sings and plays, and his endless breath may cause dizziness in the audience. Tillman Dehnhard is often considered as a bizarre One-Man-Orchestra who can create memorable sound installations at any venue. He often performs as a Soundpainter, giving workshops all over the world.
