In a brief statement delivered to media by Johansson's management, they confirmed the news and described him as "one of the most talented and brilliant people who we had the privilege of knowing and working with". "May his music continue to inspire us". He was also credited as a sound and music consultant for Darren Aronofsky's most recent film, Mother!

Johannsson also recorded several albums of his own, including "Fordlandia" and "Orphee".

He is survived by his parents, three sisters and his daughter.
