“The piano music here was inspired by the African fish eagle, and upon hearing that, Wittenburg wanted to imitate that on his piano, which results into two beautiful quiet pieces of piano music ... It makes that this release contains quite diverse approaches when it comes to his music, and as such it is probably a fine calling card for the various interests Wittenburg has." —Frans de Waard, Vital Weekly

 

 
Florian Wittenburg has been active in The Netherlands, France, Germany, and throughout Europe as an ensemble performer with a particular interest in accompanying silent films. His work includes sound and music technology and he has studied at the Centre de Création Musicale Iannis Xenakis in Paris, where he attended masterclasses by Jean-Claude Risset, Agostino Di Scipio, and Curtis Roads.

 He was engaged as a web designer at the Max-Planck-Institute for Psycholinguistics in Nijmegen and his work was shown as part of the International Science+Fiction exhibition, and, amongst other places, at the ZKM Karlsruhe, Nobel Museum Stockholm, Museum for Technology and Emerging Science Tokyo, and on the MS Wissenschaft, a boat-based travelling science display in Germany.
