Lightwave is the ambient music project of keyboardists Christoph Harbonnier and Christian Wittman, founded in 1984 in Paris, France. They have collaborated with a plethora of artists, such as Hector Zazou, Michel Redolfi, Jon Hassell and Paul Haslinger. Lightwave was originally conceived as an electronic music trio consisting of Serge Leroy, Laurent Bozeck and Christian Wittman. In 1987, Lightwave was re-established as a duo comprising musicians Christoph Harbonnier and Christian Wittman.

Lightwave uses these innovative techniques to go beyond the purely experimental, to create and communicate sound experiences for adventurous listeners. In 1984, Serge Leroy and Christian Wittman met for the first time at the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris, thanks to common friends, and decided to work together for founding Crystal Lake, a French independent and non-profit organization devoted to the promotion of new and electronic musics. Cités Analogues" reflects the work of Lightwave as a duo. It was a concept cassette-album, with a music written and composed and rehearsed for several weeks. All its parts were recorded live on a Revox tape machine. We met him at the "Ici & Maintenant" radio, where we played very special live performances in 1986 and 1988. Bruno was - and is still - one of the French experts in the field of new musics.

LightWave, however, calculates all internal data without limits and with IEEE floating-point accuracy. This means that when LightWave points a light at a surface, while the final rendered pixel may reach only RGB 255, 255, 255 for pure white, internally that pixel may have reached ten times that amount. This may not seem significant at first glance - white is white after all - but, if we look at how LightWave utilizes that data, it becomes very exciting. LightWave can utilise high dynamic range detail, as it is generated internally (.
