    That’s too damn young. [LINK]

    Daniel Licht, composer for TV’s “Dexter,” died of cancer late Wednesday. He was 60.

    Licht scored all eight seasons of “Dexter,” the Showtime serial-killer drama, from 2006 to 2013. Although he also wrote music for movies and other TV projects, it was his quirky music for “Dexter” – employing unusual sounds using bones, knives, scissors, duct tape, wine glasses, didgeridoo, Irish harp and other instruments – that became his best-known work.

    Many of Licht’s scores were in the horror genre, including two installments in the “Children of the Corn” series, two “Amityville” movies, Clive Barker’s “Hellraiser: Bloodline” and the Stephen King thriller “Thinner,” all in the 1990s. But he also scored NBC’s 1998 adaptation of Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World,” Showtime’s 2000 Jimi Hendrix biopic “Hendrix,” and Hallmark’s 2004 adventure miniseries “King Solomon’s Mines.”

    He had also branched out into the videogame arena, scoring two in the “Silent Hill” PlayStation series (“Downpour” and “Book of Memories”) and the first two games in the “Dishonored” series.
