Today saw the passing of yet another one of the great Hollywood composers.
Academy Award Winning composer James Horner has passed way leaving a massive void that can not possibly be filled by other musicians and composers.
Horner won his Oscar for ‘Titanic’, but we here at scifipulse.net remember him for the many other music scores that he created for films such as ‘Braveheart’, ‘Bicentennial Man’, ‘Avatar’ and many other great movies.
Horner is also one of the great many composers that has a connection to ‘Star Trek’. Some of his music has been used in a couple of episodes of the webseries ‘Star Trek: Phase II’.
The composer died in a tragic plane crash at the modest age of 61. Which is quite young by today’s standards.
His death was confirmed by Sylvia Patrycja, who is identified on Horner’s film music page as his assistant.
“We have lost an amazing person with a huge heart and unbelievable talent,” Patrycja wrote on Facebook on Monday. “He died doing what he loved. Thank you for all your support and love and see you down the road.”
Horner trained at the prestigious Royal College of Music in London, but it wasn’t until he relocated to Los Angeles that his career in the movie business began.
We here at scifipulse pass on our deepest condolences to the friends and family that James Horner leaves behind.
