This is a very personal one for me and quite shocked to say the least.


I have been a purchaser/listener and follower of his work for many years (since he appeared on the 4AD label), in fact I had already planned to go out to pick up his latest soundtrack release tomorrow and would have been unaware of his passing unless I had read the news.



Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson, who won a Golden Globe for his score to the film The Theory of Everything, has died aged 48, his manager says.


Mr Jóhannsson was found dead at his apartment in Berlin. The cause of death is not yet clear.


His music merged classical orchestral sounds with electronica. In addition to his film work, Mr Jóhannsson released several solo albums.
