RIP James Horner


SAD NEWS: the amazing composer James Horner was, in fact, killed the other day when his plane went down in California.

Who is James Horner, you ask?* He’s the conductor/composer behind a lot of really fantastic film scores. Examples:

  • The Land Before Time
  • An American Tail: Fievel Goes West
  • We’re Back! A Dinosaur’s Story
  • Braveheart
  • Titanic
  • The Perfect Storm

He also did the score for Apollo 13, which has my favorite movie song ever (listen to it here!). Seriously. Awesome.

R.I.P. James Horner. You were an awesome composer.

 

*Or maybe you don’t ask this. Maybe more people are familiar with his name and works than the news would have us believe.
