For those who don't know yet: Kirill Pokrovsky, the man responsible for all of the fantastic music in Divine Divinity, Beyond Divinity, Divinity 2, Dragon Commander, and Divinity: Original Sin passed away yesterday.

You can view his facebook memorial page here.

Quote:
A great man, a fantastic composer and a good friend passed away yesterday. Rest in peace Kirill Pokrovsky: we will miss you.

And thank you for all the gifts you've given us.

We each have our own Kirill story and many of us have Kirill presents on their desks. All of them demonstrate how rich a person you were.

We've all hummed your music and we have marveled at how far your virtuosity went. You were truly somebody unique, a true artist, and we were very lucky to have you as a colleague.

Larian will never be the same again without you. We will remember you always.


You can also find his music in the following Divinity install directories:

divinity2_dev_cut\treasure vault\MusicaDivina
divinity2_dev_cut\treasure vault\MusicaObscura
Divinity Dragon Commander\Imperial edition\soundtrack
Divinity - Original Sin\CollectorsEdition\Soundtrack







You can download more of Kirill's music HERE; and visit his website HERE.

Not today - yesterday.

That being said, I simply couldn't believe it. For any Russian out there - a whole era passed away with him.

Dang it. He was just in his 50ies, that's unfair.

I'm so sad to hear about this. For a long time he's been my favourite games music composer, and I've spent so many enjoyable hours listening to his incredibly immersive soundtracks.

A very sad loss indeed. frown

I know.
I'm pretty damn picky about what music I like, what music I love, and there are very few modern musicians or composers that I really, genuinely adore: Yoko Kanno, Nobuo Uematsu, and Kirill Pokrovsky.

I know Larian re-purposed some older music for Divinity: Original Sin. I hope they continue to do so for future games, because a Divinity game without Kirill's music is no Divinity at all.

I just read the news in the kickstarter mail, and it made me so sad. frown

What an amazing man. The reason I still replay the original Divine Divinity is largely because of the stunningly beautiful music.

I give him so much respect. As for Larian: I hope you can one day find a worthy replacer for Kirill. I know he was also a great friend for you guys.

It's hard for me to say something, he accompanied my art pass time it's gone more than the gameplay time; a Master it's gone and sadly I'm not even able to express more.
Rest in peace dear Master and thanks for every creation you made for all of us...

I too was shocked to hear of his passing, at age 50, no less.

His music was grand and his future stood to make it even grander.

May he rest in peace and may we honor his legacy.


Unless otherwise specified, just an opinion or simple curiosity.

I can not express how sad I'm at the moment, a great man, and for me the greatest gaming composer of all time has left as frown

A big part of what make Divinity games so great was his music, and soundtrack for Divine Divinity is something that still give me the chills and beautiful nostalgic feeling each time I listen it.

No, I don't and it's not in the Divinty Original Sin soundtrack too.

I had no idea his illness was that severe, what a terrible loss. RIP Kirill, your beautiful music will live on forever.

I just want to express my sadness at learning the news about Mr. Pokrovsky. I did not know him, but he was only 3 (three!) years older than me and June 1 was my birthday. The compositions of the Divinity series are a beautiful legacy to his musical gifts. My heart felt sympathies to his friends and family everywhere. Thank you.

Did not know the man, which kind of limits what i can say, beyond the stereotypically obvious..

Looking forward to seeing some mention of him in the next game.

Kirill is actually in Divinity: Original Sin. He's a unique monster model and will play music.

I'm gutted by this news frown

Kirill came across as a wonderful person and I'm truly sad at this loss

You will be missed, Maestro Pokrovsky. Rest in peace


I'm just a man smile
