R.I.P. James Horner
Music just keeps losing giants of the art. When you heard the phrase “Hollywood Heavyweight Composer,” alongside John Williams and Hans Zimmer, James Horner always would be mentioned. He always will. The body of work that Horner produced will stand the test of time as a unique and powerful testament to music’s fluidity and depth. My first mentor in ethnomusicology worked with James to create the music for Avatar, and from all accounts he truly was a solid guy. He will be missed.
