Our expert Raimund Bretterbauer and his Team, our unique studio spaces and welcoming residential facilities come together to make Bretterbauer Music a first-class music production facility and creative idyll.

Raimund Bretterbauer

was born on August 18, 1983 in Styria. In an artistically open home (the father is a painter and sculptor) his

 creativity was encouraged from an early age.

From the age of 8 he received

drum lessons

and continues to play this instrument in various

jazz rock and pop bands.

At the age of 13 he

recorded his first album with the band „Red Letter Day“

qualified for the final of the Austrian Band Contest in the same year.

This experience of

album production

also sparked his interest in

studio technology

which he initially learned on his own, later on a professional level.

Learned guitar

later during the rehearsals with his bands from the various guitarists.

At the age of 15 he 

started teaching keyboard and set & harmony.

After successfully completing his IT technician training,

he decided at 20 when he was going to live fully dedicated to music and moved to Vienna.

He started working for the composer Erwin Kiennast

and became his assistant
and worked for next two years. 

Erwin Kiennast became Bretterbauer’s mentor for the area of

Composition for orchestra and film music.

To this day, Bretterbauer regularly works with Erwin Kiennast together.

This contact gave him his first small orders for his own compositions.

In Vienna Bretterbauer worked with various bands for the following years, for which he took over studio and live technology.

Due to his special hearing and the technical Skills he became a valued „sound partner“ in music circles.

At 22, he got the offer as

Technical Manager Sound at the MMC Studios in Cologne

for the show production „Magic of Light“ by the Phoenix Fire Dancers.

worked a 10.1 surround sound live sound concept and successfully implemented it.

This successful project opened many doors for him back in Vienna.

As a freelancer in various studios in Vienna, he worked on various successful Musical and band album productions.

At 24, Bretterbauer

founded his
own studio 

 to be able to follow composition orders. 

His work was now divided
into two core areas:

studio work (composition, production and engineering) and Live engineering.

He met Kurt Hauenstein, aka Supermax, and became his live engineer.

With Supermax he toured
across the world.

After a short time, Supermax’s hired Bretterbauer as

studio engineer, composer and producer and a new single was released 2010.

In addition to the tours, he worked with Supermax on a new album and one newly remixed total edition of his songs, which by the surprising Death of Kurt Hauenstein (March 31, 2011) could not be completed.

In addition to Supermax, other artists such as:

Shaggy, Gossip, Pitpull, Sweet, Boney M, Fatman Scoop…

worked together with Bretterbauer.

From collaboration and contacts with artists at Phoenix Fire Dancers Raimund Bretterbauer got more and more orders for the composition and production of show music.

In addition to these demanding tours and concerts, the Composition area gained more and more meaning and he

produced and composed music

for presentations, signations and advertisements

for clients such as:

IBM, A1-Telekom, Intersport Eybl, LT1, Rosenbauer…

In 2011 he started with the “Phoenix Fire Dancers – Show Production Company”
