You may not have heard the name of the Oscar-awarded man who recently died, but you have surely heard his music in the world famous movies like “Titanic,” “Aliens,” “Avatar,” “The Amazing Spider-Man” and so on. Let’s pay tribute to the legendary American music composer and orchestrator James Horner.

Horner was in the midst of the production of highly-anticipated science fiction movie “Avatar 2” with his team members, when the world was shocked by the news about his unexpected death in a plane crash in California on June 22, 2015.

Director James Cameron, the reasonable man behind “Avatar 2,” paid tribute to Horner by sharing the words of admiration. He also shared Horner’s esteemed contribution behind the success of his films and referred him as his ‘teammate.’

“The Avatar community has lost one of our great creative lights. James’s music was the air under the banshees’ wings, the ancient song of the forest, and the heartbeat of Eywa. We have lost not only a great teammate and collaborator, but a good friend,” Cameron said to BBC News in a joint statement with co-producer Jon Landau.

Cameron and Horner came across together while working on sci-fi movie “Battle Beyond the Stars” in 1980. Cameron was impressed by Horner and hired him for his movie “Aliens” in 1986. After achieving a superb experience working with him, they once again worked together for “Titanic” in 1997.

Not only Hollywood, the entire film industry across the globe mourned his loss. Recently, Cinefix – the folks behind “8-bit Cinema” – paid tribute to Horner by releasing a video on YouTube. The video is created based on the style of Nintendo Entertainment System.

Watch the tribute clip below, which will remind you of some Horner’s memorable movies like “Braveheart” and “Glory,” with some of his super hit songs. You must watch some of his movies to get tuned with his incredible works and contribution he has devoted for the film industry.
