Raphaelle Thibaut

Known for: Documentary, Drama, Animation, Feature Documentary

Born half deaf, Raphaelle was encouraged from the age of 4 by her music-loving parents to start an intense 17 years' piano practice to help educate her hearing.

From her early teens, Morricone, Goldstmith and De Roubais scores were playing on her discman.

In 2015, after 4 years leading marketing at Google in Europe, she decided to pursue her lifelong passion for music and film scoring.

Her primary music genre is neo-classical, a mix of ethereal instruments and electronic, layered vocals, minimalist aestetic elements and slow beat.

But working with advertisers, artists and producers have pushed her to extend her skills to new genres from symphonic, epic, horror to electronic.

In the past year, Raphaelle has been composer for big brands including Ubisoft, Red Bull, Herschel and Tate Modern London, major Hollywood trailer houses and she’s just completed recording an album with EMI Sony/ATV in Europe.

2021 commissions include four-part series Secrets of The Whales executive produced by James Cameron and narrated by Sigourney Weaver. It broadcasts on Earth Day 2021 on Disney+.

A long-time Parisian, she’s a Londoner at heart who has recently called New York City home.


"At Wildscreen in Bristol last year I was approached by four different agencies, each pitching half a dozen or so composers.

That's not unusual, and I did give each the obligatory listen knowing that we were looking for something special for Whales. The thought then was that we may even use a different composer for each of the four hours.

Raphaelle was the only one from the samples I heard that seemed to be offering the heart and soul we were looking for. I already knew by then that this series was going to have a lot more emotion than the usual wildlife film and that it was going to touch people. We needed someone who could compose to that emotion and work with it while still having the generosity not to overwhelm the pictures.

After Raph nailed the first episode, it was clear we didn't need anyone else and we asked her to compose for all four hours."
