It's always sad to see people who affected so many people in so many ways pass away. My respects, sir.
Fantastic composer. Terrible news. :(
Heavy Rain was blessed quite a bit to have this man at its musical helm. The game's music was what really made the game's tone. Requiescat in pace Mr. Corbeil.
RIP Normand Corbeil.
His beautiful work will live on, the world of gaming and music has lost a great talent.
Shocking. RIP. Listening to that music still puts chills down my back. Love it. Amazing work! You will be missed
I've never played Heavy Rain. But this is pretty sad!
Oh no. :( May he rest in peace. Such a loss to the world of video games and music.
Thats a damn shame. ;(
Great composer, that music made the game go from 9 to 10 in my books.
Gah, one of my favourite (video game) composers. R.I.P.
Damn that sucks. Best wishes to his family, and may he be remembered for his excellent contributions to the entertainment industry.
Fantastic body of work from a very talented man. He will be missed. :(
This is the first time in awhile I been compelled to play a game based on music alone since...last gen atleast
A sad day for music. His music will live on.
Farewell sir, may you make beautiful music wherever you go.
Rest In Paradise.
His heavy rain theme was awesome. RIP Norman Corbeil.
