James Horner, Film Composer for 'Titanic' and 'Braveheart,' Dies in Plane Crash
《阿凡达》配乐大师詹姆斯霍纳因飞机失事遇难


好莱坞著名作曲家,曾经为《梦幻成真》、《勇敢的心》和《泰坦尼克号》配乐,并且两次获得奥斯卡金像奖的詹姆斯·霍纳的私人飞机在加州坠毁,助理确认其已罹难,享年61岁。

他曾为《泰坦尼克号》、《阿凡达》、《燃情岁月》、《勇敢的心》、《美丽心灵》等电影配乐,11次提名奥斯卡,并凭《我心永恒》获奖。

“我们失去了一位非凡的人,他有着大心脏和难以置信的天赋。”西尔维娅·帕特里西亚在个人的Facebook主页上写到:“他死时正在做着自己喜欢的事情,感谢所有人这一路来的支持和喜爱。”

官方人士确认,在圣巴巴拉北部60英里发生的小型飞机坠毁事故中,驾驶飞机的正是詹姆斯·霍纳本人。

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.

His death was confirmed by Sylvia Patrycja, who is identified on Horner's film music page as his assistant.

"We have lost an amazing person with a huge heart and unbelievable talent," Patrycja wrote on Facebook on Monday. "He died doing what he loved. Thank you for all your support and love and see you down the road."

Horner was piloting the small aircraft when it crashed into a remote area about 60 miles north of Santa Barbara, officials said. An earlier report noted that the plane, which was registered to the composer, had gone down, but the pilot had not been identified.



For his work on the 1997 best picture winner Titanic, directed by James Cameron, Horner captured the Oscar for original dramatic score, and he nabbed another Academy Award for original song (shared with lyricist Will Jennings) for "My Heart Will Go On," performed by Celine Dion.

"My job - and it's something I discuss with Jim all the time - is to make sure at every turn of the film it's something the audience can feel with their heart," Horner said in a 2009 interview with the Los Angeles Times. "When we lose a character, when somebody wins, when somebody loses, when someone disappears - at all times I'm keeping track, constantly, of what the heart is supposed to be feeling. That is my primary role."

His score for Titanic sold a whopping 27 million copies worldwide.

His fruitful partnership with Cameron also netted him Oscar noms for original score for the blockbusters Aliens (1986) and Avatar (2009). The pair reportedly were also at work on Avatar sequels.

The Los Angeles native earned 10 Oscar noms in all, also being recognized for his work on two other best picture winners: Braveheart (1995) and A Beautiful Mind (2001). He also received noms for An American Tail (1986), Field of Dreams (1989), Apollo 13 (1995) and House of Sand and Fog (2003).

Always busy, Horner has three films coming out soon: Southpaw, the boxing drama that stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Rachel McAdams and is due in theaters in July; Jean-Jacques Annaud's Wolf Totem, out in September; and The 33, a drama based on the 2010 mining disaster in Chile that's set for November.

His lengthy film résumé includes The Lady in Red (1979), Wolfen (1981), Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982) and Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (1983), Red Heat (1988), Glory (1989), The Rocketeer (1991), Patriot Games (1992), Searching for Bobby Fischer (1993), Jumanji (1995), How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000), Troy (2004) and The Amazing Spider-Man (2012).

His father was two-time Oscar-winning art director/set designer Harry Horner (The Heiress, The Hustler).

Horner spoke about the state of his career in a December interview with David Hocquet.

"I'm much choosier," he said.' "I don't want to be doing these movies that now 85 or 90 composers want, as opposed to six. And now all these movies, action movies. I don't get offered all the movies obviously, but I see a lot of them and I do get asked to do a lot of them, and I just know they're not asking me to do something that I can do something original, they're asking me to do a formula and I'm too rebellious."(Source:THR)
