Rémi Gazel (Rayman 1's composer) has passed away.

Post by Lorenzo » Sun May 26, 2019 6:01 pm

Incredibly sad news.. Rayman 1's Composer, Rémi Gazel has passed away... - https://twitter.com/REMIGAZEL

It's a very sad day for Rayman fans...
He was also active in the forums and we spoke a bit via PM. He had a kickstarter 3 years ago, that failed unfortunately.

He was the main reason why I got into my profession. There's just something about his music that inspires me and makes me feel joyful.
Let's have a listen, one more time for Remi: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s1Nev-cTjZ0

I saw this on the Rayman by Rémi Facebook page, it's very sad news indeed. I had no idea he was even ill, and it was a pleasure to have him on the forum. Thanks for everything Rémi!

I nearly cried when I found out about this. His songs were such a great part of my life... It's so hard to believe that he is gone...
I wish to extend sincere condolences to his family and to all his friends.
Thank you for everything, Rémi.
Louée soit la Sainte Prune ! :angel:

I have also heard about the news, my deepest condolences to both Rémi's friends and family.

I still remember his initial Kickstarter and how much he used to responed to folks on the forum, it really shows how much he cared about this fanbase and it's disappointing to see he couldn't have one last hurrah with his brilliant Rayman 1 OST(that still hasn't been topped to this day), still it was good while it lasted and I hope he rests in peace.

I found out about this yesterday from a friend, had no idea it even happened until then. I hope his family and friends are doing okay; my deepest condolences regardless.

I remember seeing the Rayman By Rémi project years ago back on Facebook (possibly from here, I can't remember), and although I admittedly forgot about it for a good while now, I'm glad to see he at least did some tracks for it before he passed away (even if it wasn't anywhere near complete). An absolutely bomb as hell soundtrack for a game that appropriately bombs you in the same way with difficulty. Rest in peace, Rémi.
haha yes

Remi is deceased? No! :!:

Now when I listen to his soundtracks, I even feel a bit of discomfort about this.

His funeral is May 31st. I wish I could go.

I learned this yesterday, it ended up leaving me a bit blue all day. His work will always be remembered to us Rayman fans and my sincerest condolences to his family.

May he rest in peace. :(

I learned this as soon as he sadly passed away
This was a big shocker and i hope his family will recover from this
I even was a bit depresed the day after

I hope he rests well in heaven and his legacy will continue every time someone listens to one of his music tracks

We will miss him, it was too soon

Message from Christophe Heral's Facebook, for those who haven't read it yet: Mr Dark a gagné la partie, c’était un game play trop difficile pour en venir à bout, alors repose en paix, mon magicien.

According to Google Translate:

Mr Dark won the game, it was a gameplay too difficult to overcome, so rest in peace, my magician.

A tragedy for the art of video game music. So many of his songs shaped me into who I am. I'll never forget you, Rémi.

It's still hard to believe this, and almost 3 months have passed already. Rest in piece Rémi. :(
