After she was born, Thibaut suffered from a series of severe ear issues that led to single-sided deafness. At aged 4, following doctor's recommendation and guided by her music-loving parents, she started an intense piano practice and music became her path to recovery. She studied in Northern France and Paris, where she lived until 2015.
From her early teens, Morricone, Goldstmith and De Roubais scores were playing on her disc-man.
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 (Disney+) executive produced by James Cameron and narrated by Sigourney Weaver. A live symphony orchestra experience for the series featuring Raphaelle's score will also tour venues around the world in 2022.
A long-time Parisian, she’s a Londoner at heart who has recently called New York City home.
