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

Ralf is a composer and producer and has been working film music, artist production and his solo works. His musical background is very eclectic as of his classical education in piano and composition and the strong electronic influences on his work since the late 80'ies.

In the 90'ies he collaborated with Sven Väth on his albums, released countless club tracks ("Alienated", "Superstring", "Firedance" or "Vernon´s Wonderland Rmx" a.o.) and founded his electronic live-project Earth Nation with whom he has been touring around Europe and playing at the Montreux Jazz Festival, London's Brixton Academy, Kristiansand, Tribal Gatering Universe and many others.

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

End of 9o'ies/first years of 00's was the time of new directions and Ralf was focusing on artist-related productions and songwriting. He founded the production-company Schallbau with Stevie B-Zet and A.C.Boutsen and they produced and co-wrote successful songs and albums  for artists such as Laith Al-Deen, Andreas Bourani, Yvonne Catterfeld, Phil Collin´s sun Simon Collins' debut album and many others.

Since 2010 Ralf started to focuse more and more on filmmusic and produced many scores. He often collaborated with Stevie B-Zet on soundtracks for feature movies and TV productions such as "Vincent will meer" ("Deutscher Filmpreis", 2012 - German Filmacadamy Award), the acclaimed "Bastard" or the TV series "Verbotene Liebe" (2012-2015).

His filmmusic for the internationally acclaimed 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 Filmfestival Dresden for his score to the movie "Eine Villa mit Pinien".
