Normand Corbeil, the composer behind Quantic Dream's Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls has passed away on Friday, following a battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 56.
The award-winning creative was diagnosed in August 2012, and was honoured with a BAFTA for his work on Heavy Rain in 2011. News of his passing was first announced by his son on The Cancer Forum
, who called him "a great composer and an amazing dad."
As well as Quantic Dream's PlayStation 3 titles, Corbeil also had a hand in Fahrenheit
, being the man behind the orchestral score and some additional music. It is not known at this time whether his work on Beyond: Two Souls
was completed before his passing.
A great loss, and a true talent in video game cinematic composition. Rest in Peace, Normand.
