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.
