Johannsson-who blended classical form and electronic instrumentation-was nominated for "Arrival" and scored several films out in 2018, including "Mary Magdalene". "It is with profound sadness that we confirm the passing of our dear friend Jóhann", read a statement, written by his management company, on his Facebook page.

Johannsson also received an Oscar nomination for the 2015 movie "Sicario". He won a Golden Globe for his soundtrack to 2014 Stephen Hawking biopic The Throey of Everything and frequently collaborated with Blade Runner 2049 director Denis Villeneuve, providing eerie, atmospheric scores for Prisoners, Sicario, and Arrival.

Aside from creating his unbelievable musical scores for movies, the composer, who was born in Iceland, was successful as a solo musician as well.
