Raphaelle Thibaut is the music composer of the new four part series Secrets Of The Whales. 

The Synopsis 

Secrets of the Whales,” from National Geographic, plunges viewers deep within the epicenter of whale culture to experience the extraordinary communication skills and intricate social structures of five different whale species: orcas, humpbacks, belugas, narwhals and sperm whales. Filmed over three years in 24 locations, throughout this epic journey, we learn that whales are far more complex and more like us than ever imagined.

The French composer Raphaelle Thibaut found music as a journey to recovery after being declared single-sided deafness at the age of four. It was recommended to practice piano. Her appreciation for music led her to graduate from The Conservatory of Lille France in 2002. Thibaut was part of the Google marketing department until 2015 when she quit to follow her passion for music and film. She started with small music companies and independent films. Later on was hired by prestigious brands like Nike,  Coca-Cola and others. Hollywood production trailers are also listed in her resume for films like Incredibles 2 and Maleficent: Mistress of EvilSecrets Of The Whales is her first television project.
