Heavy Rain Composer Normand Corbeil Passes Away
Heavy Rain score composer Normand Corbeil, aged 56, passed away this past Friday after a lengthy fight with pancreatic cancer.
Corbeil's son posted on the Cancer Forums just hours after his father's passing, understandably giving very few details on the situation.
My father, Normand Corbeil, 56, passed away today at 2:56 PM. He was a great composer and an amazing dad... I am in shock.
His forum signature reveals that he was diagnosed with Stage 4 pancreatic cancer on August 15, 2012. After five months of combating the disease, he passed away on January 25, 2013.
Corbeil was a Montreal-native and worked as a composer for several movies and television shows. His most recent work was on Heavy Rain with developer Quantic Dream, for which he also did the score to Indigo Prophecy. He was composing the score for the studio's upcoming Beyond: Two Souls before his passing.
Our hearts go out to Normand Corbeil's family and friends in this tough time, and we hope the best for them in the future.
