Ralf Hildenbeutel (born 6 March 1969)[1] is a German composer and producer.

Life and career[edit]

Ralf Hildenbeutel has a classical education in piano and composition and got early into electronic music. In the 90s he was most known for his collaborations with Sven Väth with whom he produced Väth´s major albums between 1991 and 1998 such as "An Accident in Paradise", "Barbarella" or "The Harlequin, the Robot, and the Ballet-Dancer". That period Hildenbeutel was one of the main producers of the electronic music label Eye Q Records with A.C. Boutsen and Stevie B-Zet. With his crossover electro live act project "Earth Nation” he was debuting at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1994 and continued to play around Europe until they split up in 1999.[2][3] Hildenbeutel also collaborated on various club releases under project names such as "Cygnus X", "Odyssey of Noises" and others. The scene magazine Frontpage wrote in 1995 that around 90% of all trance-releases that time had been influenced by the typical EYE Q sound and Mixmag named the Väth's Album "An Accident in Paradise" one of the 50 best dance albums ever.[4] In the 90s he also started to work regularly on film music for movies such as the experimental art-docu movie "Hommage á Noir" (1996).[5][6]

When the Eye Q label moved to Berlin in 1997 Hildenbeutel stayed in Frankfurt. Together with A.C. Boutsen and Stevie B-Zet he founded the production company "Schallbau". Hildenbeutel turned from techno to artist production and produced an co-wrote for artists such as Simon Collins, Laith Al-Deen, Yvonne Catterfeld or Andreas Bourani with whom he achieved several top ten entries.[7][8][9][10][11][12][13][14]

In 2008 Schallbau split up and Ralf started to focus on film music and his solo works.[15]

Hildenbeutel received several awards such as the Gold Medal at the New York Festivals for "Hommage á Noir"[16] (1997) and the VIVA Comet as best producer (1996). In 2013 his music for "Momentum" was nominated at the Newport International Festival) and in 2017 he received the "Golden Horse" at the International Filmfest Dresden for "Eine Villa mit Pinien (A Pine Tree Villa)"[17]
