Academy-Award-nominated composer Jóhann Jóhannsson died on Friday in Berlin at the age of 48.

Jóhannsson's death was confirmed by his management on Saturday morning, but a cause of death was not released.

"It is with profound sadness that we confirm the passing of our dear friend Jóhann," Redbird Music Management said in a Facebook post. "We have lost one of the most talented and brilliant people who we had the privilege of knowing and working with. May his music continue to inspire us."

Jóhannsson is best known scoring films including Arrival, The Theory of Everything and Sicario. He was critically lauded for his works, which earned him a slew of awards and nominations in recent years.
