    Had to register so i could post .

    Your father was an incredible composer ,his work on heavy rain was monemental ,the melody lines to the feeling of each piece ,this will be never be replicated or replaced by anyone ,he will be remembered and live on through his compositions which even today tv channels use for show trailers and instantly the piece is recognised .
    May he rest in peace ,its not just your loss its everyones loss ,there was so much more to come .
    My sincere condolences in this tough time.

    I am so sorry to hear about you're father passing as he truly was a gifted man. I am listening to the Heavy Rain Soundtrack right now in his honor because believe it or not, the soundtrack is pretty much the main reason why I kept playing the game to the point where I wanted to achieve all 22 possible endings.

    I never knew he composed over 59 projects/titles!
    Very clever way around the policy, however it's still not allowed. I don't make the rules, but I have to enforce them.

    Orly, if you would like to share this link, or if members are interested, please PM the member directly. Thanks.

    You're father truly was a gifted man because his composing work was absolutely stunning!

During the last five months you have been through so much and yet, despite the circumstances in your life, you managed to share with us just how much you cared and loved your Dad. Thank you for your contributions, for the comfort you bestowed upon the many who come here for compassion and support. May your Dad, Normand Corbeil be never forgotten. May his soul rest in peace.

    Corbeil won a BAFTA Award for his work on the PlayStation 3 game "Heavy Rain." He also composed for "V" and "Fatal Affair."

    A composer known in the video game world for his work on the soundtrack of "Heavy Rain" died Jan. 25.

    Normand Corbeil's extensive resume included work on the PlayStation 3 game "Heavy Rain;" he was working on music for a new game, "Beyond: Two Souls," at the time of his death. He also composed for films and television, including "V," "Double Jeopardy" and "White Noise 2: The Light," according to IMDB.

    Corbeil won BAFTA and Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences awards for his work on "Heavy Rain." He also won multiple SOCAN Awards and was nominated for two Emmys.

    Corbeil, who was 56, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in August 2012, gaming site Joystiq reported. Joystiq reviewed the music in "Heavy Rain" when it came out, calling the score "superb" and saying it drew players into the experience.

    Word of Corbeil's passing first appeared online via his son, Laurent Bastein Corbeil, according to IGN. A user on a cancer support forum who is believed to be Laurent posted Jan. 25 that "My father, Normand Corbeil, 56, passed away today at 2:56 p.m. He was a great composer and an amazing dad I am in shock."

    The gaming world has greeted the news with sadness.

    Quanticdream, the studio that produced "Heavy Rain" and "Beyond: Two Souls" and worked with Corbeil on those games, posted a memorial to him on its website Monday.

    "We are today deeply saddened by the loss of our dear friend Normand Corbeil," the memorial says. "Normand was not only one of the most talented composers of his generation; he was a formidable person, kind and humble."

    EuroGamer, in reporting the story, added, "Rest in peace, Normand, and thank you."

    Joystiq said, "Gaming has lost a great composer, but Corbeil's work lives on."

    I am deeply sorry for your loss. I checked out some of his music...so gifted. You must be very proud of him. Take care
    Married my best friend 12/10/11 :
    Hysterscopy with D&C 5/4/12
    Diagnosed with Endometrial Cancer 5/14/12
    160 mg/day of Megace (Progesterone) to see if we can stop the cancer and protect fertility
    D&C, and suspicious freckle removal 10/11/12
    10/19/12 All benign
    12/18/12- Megace decreased from 160 mg to 80
    2/7/13 Benign biopsy
    5/23/13-Benign office biopsy results!
    11/2013 Biopsy - Benign, Megace dose dropped down to 40/day
    1/2014 - My Doctors at OSU thought it would be beneficial to do another D&C to test a larger sample and the results were benign as well. The doctor suggested that I try weaning myself off of the megace in June. I have another biopsy in August, and if that goes well we can start trying for a baby!!!
