Misc : Composer and Apple Master Michael Kamen Dies at 55 - macmusicWe've lost another Apple Master too young. Composer and conductor Michael Kamen died today of a heart attack at age 55. Mr. Kamen had worked on diverse projects such as arrangements for Pink Floyd's 1979 "The Wall" and other rock artists from Sting to David Bowie, numerous film scores including Grammy Award-winning Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves and the Die Hard movies, and conducting the recent UK tribute to Beatle George Harrison. (See Andante's excellent article today on his acheivements, and for film music, you'll see some of your favorite movies at IMDB.) Mr. Kamen was a beloved Apple Master, as well, using Mac software like Sibelius who mourn his death today on their site. (Sadly, Apple has removed their page on Mr. Kamen along with the now-outdated Apple Masters site.)

Mr. Kamen also founded the Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation which donates musical instruments to needy schools and students. MacMusic readers who've been touched by Mr. Kamen's music, it seems there could be no better gift in his memory than to help children discover the wonder of music.
