LONDON: Oscar-nominated composer Jóhann Jóhannsson, who churned out music for films like "Arrival", "Sicario" and "The Theory of Everything", was found dead in his Berlin apartment, his manager said.

He was 48.

Tim Husom, his Los Angeles manager, said that Berlin authorities are investigating and that an autopsy would be performed. The cause of death, thus far, is not known, reports variety.com.

In a statement, his agency Gorfaine-Schwartz said: "We are deeply saddened by the sudden loss of our client and dear friend Jóhann Jóhannsson, whose great talent, humility and kindness enriched our lives immeasurably. His music has inspired many new generations of filmmakers and composers. He will be so greatly missed by his Gorfaine/Schwartz family as well as the entire film music community."

Johannsson, who died on Friday, often blended electronics with conventional orchestra. 

He received an Oscar, a BAFTA and Grammy nominations for his 2014 score for "The Theory of Everything" and won the Golden Globe for that score. 

He received a second Oscar nomination for 2015's "Sicario" and Golden Globe, BAFTA and Grammy nominations for his music for "Arrival" in 2016.

His most recent score is "Mary Magdalene" with Rooney Mara for director Garth Davis, which is slated to release here in March.

Jóhannsson is survived by his parents, a daughter and three sisters.
