RALF HILDENBEUTEL
----------------------

Ralf is an award winning producer and film composer. His style is shaped by his eclectic background as of his classical education in piano and composition and his obsession for electronic music since the late 80'ies.

In the 90'ies he collaborated with Sven Väth on his major albums, released a countless number of club classics and founded his electronic live-project Earth Nation. He has been touring across Europe and playing at the Montreux Jazz Festival, London's Brixton Academy, Tribal Gatering Universe and others.

In that time he also produced various remixes for artists such as Anne Clark, Robert Palmer, Enigma or Yello and was awarded with the "Viva Comet" as Best Producer from Germany's music TV channel VIVA. His film music for the movie "Hommage á Noir" received the golden medal at the New York Festivals in 1996.

In the end of 9o'ies/first years of 00's it was the time of new directions and Ralf started focusing on artist-related productions and songwriting. He founded the production-company Schallbau with Stevie B-Zet and A.C. Boutsen. They produced and co-wrote for artists such as Laith Al-Deen, Andreas Bourani, Yvonne  Catterfeld, or Phil Collins' son Simon Collins. That time they archived several top ten entries and gold or platinum records.

Since 2010 Ralf is moving away from pop-productions and focusing on film music. He worked on feature movies such as "Vincent will meer" ("Deutscher Filmpreis", 2012 - German Film Acadamy Award) or international productions such as the Italian mini-series "Maltese".

His filmmusic for the short movie "Momentum" (by Boris Seewald) received various awards such as "Cinedans" and a nomination for best music at the "Newport International Filmfestival" in UK in 2014. In 2017 he won the "Goldene Reiter" at the esteemed Filmfest Dresden for his score for the movie "Eine Villa mit Pinien".

Ralf currently works on several international and German productions. He also collaborated with Chris Liebing on Chris´ latest solo album "Burn Slow" which has been released worldwide on Mute Records.
