Why Five Minute Hippo?

Google, that's why

If you remember hippo, our branding is working.

Five Minute Hippo is like five minute noodles. Without the noodles. With a hippo. We wanted a branding which was memorable and which customers wouldn't confuse with other music producers. So we picked the hippopotamus, an animal known for its delicate stature and virtuosity on nearly every musical instrument in western culture. Obvious choice, we know.

So, remember to google 'hippo production music' and you'll always be able to find us.

Meet the makers

In the beginning, there was..

Five Minute Hippo Music is situated in the "golden triangle of volkswagen", right in between the Wolfsburg headquarters, the Hannover commercial vehicles factory, and Financial Services in Braunschweig.

Now in the early days of Five Minute Hippo, all music is produced by its founder, Gero Baier. Further cooperations are in preparation to offer you a wider range of musical styles. If you don't find the right fit now, do come back, we add new music on a regular basis.

What else do you do?


We are passionate about improving our composition and the mastery of our instruments, about room acoustics and the recording process that ultimately creates our music. But we're also always on the lookout for tools which make our lives easier. We want to spend less time mixing and mastering and still sound better with every production.

This is why we are preparing a new website for music producers. News, reviews and opinions from the perspective of active composers-recording musicians-engineers. Just the tools we actually use.

Available end of summer 2019...
