He officially endorses Altus Flutes/Artis Music.

​It starts with just a modest clicking, a rhythm or a single, seemingly endless note. There may be whistling sounds, a groove, a wind noise. We listen closer and suddenly the unexpected happens: Where does that second melody come from? Tilmann Dehnhard is the ventriloquist of the flute. He sings and plays at the same time, going for so long without a breath that it makes you dizzy. His improvisations create little universes that tell tales of breath and breathlessness, they take off and make you float. Is this really just one man? Yes, it is. A strange and fascinating one-man orchestra he is, Tilmann Dehnhard and his flute.
