    I heard on NPR last evening that Johan Johanssen (scorer of Sicario and more) passed yesterday at 48 years old.
    I assume this is true, given the source.
    But I've been surprised to have not seen any mention of it on the forums.
    Is the news of his passing accurate?

    Unfortunately yes. See the beginning of this video from Chrisitian at Spitfire Audio:

    That's so sad, I was only just learning about that beautiful music.

    Very sad. I thought his score for The Theory of Everything was especially touching. Far too young.

    shocking.. I listened to some compilation of his works a few weeks ago because a lot of members here were recommending his works for enjoyment.

    Without a doubt one of the most unique and creative composers I've had the pleasure of listening to. He was one of my favorite and I was looking so forward to what was to come from this fresh and incredible talent. So sad he's gone, he had just hit his stride. He will be missed.
