James Horner: 1953-2015

James Horner, the consummate film composer known for his heart-tugging scores for Field of Dreams, Braveheart and Titanic, for which he won two Academy Awards, died Monday in a plane crash near Santa Barbara. He was 61.

Genuinely sad news. Those who know me know how passionate I am about movie soundtracks, and his score for Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan ranks highly as one of my favourites. RIP.
