RIP, Joel. You will live on through your music, and all of us fans will miss you. Say hello to Don when you see him!

Sad loss. Music has a tremendous impact on our memories of movies and television. The music often stays in our minds long after other details fade away. Creative geniuses like the Goldsmiths and Elmer Bernstein are irreplaceable.

Wow, this is sad. In his honor, I will listen to the themes for Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis tomorrow when I am at work.

Incredibly sad news. My thoughts are with his family and friends at this very difficult time. Joel’s passing away is also a tragic loss to the music, film, and movie industries. He will be missed by many. Whenever his music is heard he will be remembered by fans all across the world.

RIP
Joel Goldsmith
1957 – 2012

Oh man, this is sad news. Was just watching the Stargate Atlantis episode Vegas on Universal HD and saw him as one of the poker players. SG would’ve been completely different if not for his masterful work. He will be missed.

I may not be a “musical person”, but I always thought he was a great composer, and was sad to see that he was fairly unknown – at least among the general public.

He really made a big difference to Stargate. Without the music he created Stargate would not be the same.

Listening to “The Nox” music now, really encapsulates the feel and magic of SG-1

All my hopes and prayers go out to Joel’s family and friends. His death is a great loss to the Stargate community. I didn’t give much thought to the “background” music in movies or television shows– but that was “pre-Stargate”. As I began to watch, and re-watch, Stargate episodes, I realized that Joel’s music was more than notes to fill the empty spaces between words with sound. His music was the unseen performer, which went beyond words to express the core emotions behind each scene. Part of his genius was the way these themes were reused as a subtle method… Read more »

RIP, Jole! Your composed music on SGU (yes, there was composed music!) was some of. If not your BEST works.

It truly is a loss and I feel grief for everyone touched by him. His imprint left behind is iconic with the unmistakable theme music that is Stargate.

He will be remembered, RIP…

May those in spirit/heaven gain as much and more pleasure from you and your music as we have had the privelage of having here. It will be wonderful that you will see you father again and others that you cared for. God bless. Quintin

Oh my! How did I not hear this? Joel was a friend of mine. We never got to meet in person but we spent hours online talking about music, movies and other things. This makes me feel really bad.
