Decided to spin my vinyl copy of the Arrival score in memoriam. This score is so creative and original. His talent will be missed.

The three scores he did for Denis Villeneuve were all good. My favorite is Sicario.

I first knew of him after they used Sun's Gone Dim in that sci-fi trailer.

I would be happy to see his name pop up in credits. A film score can be a powerful thing. I know I'd be in for a treat when I see his name.

I really need to buy that one. I loved it when I watched the movie.

That's incredibly sad to hear. If you guys liked his film scores, you should also see out his 2016 album OrphÚe.

They really do elevate Villeneuve's work.

This one shocked me. Big fan of his work and had hoped to hear more in the future. Terrible loss.

Check out "The Miners' Hymn". His solo work is great.

I was totally shocked to hear this news. I really loved his scores. Agree with the others that "Sicario" is head and shoulders above the rest, but all of his work is excellent. RIP.
