“Raphaël Dargent’s music… creates some exciting and immersive moments.” (Screencritix)

Silent as the Grave (Raphaël Dargent)

Original score from the 2023 crime noir feature film directed by Dan Gremley and Brad Podowski, starring Jacki Hydock, Isabella Alonso and Buzz Leer, produced by BP Video+ and released by Indie Rights.

THE STORY: A relentless documentary filmmaker struggles to unravel the mystery of his uncle’s death, but an unknown enemy is intent on keeping the truth buried.

THE SCORE: “‘I want the score to give the film a modern noir feel and I want to use the song Silent Night in the movie‘. These were the two main focuses of Brad Podowski (director) when he came to me for the score of Silent as the Grave. Weaving these elements together, I crafted a suspense-filled, neo-noir electronic jazz score, drawing motifs from Silent Night to underscore the film’s central mystery. With a small, dedicated jazz ensemble, we managed to create a soundtrack that’s both intimate and explosive, adding a compelling layer of depth to the film.” – Raphaël Dargent
