With us now firmly mired in the middle of a holiday break, there is not too much happening within the world of any show … but that’s not going to stop us from digging up a little “Game of Thrones” news.
However, we do at least have something worth sharing now that will give you some insight into the music for the Emmy-winning series, and the score that will still inevitably be a part of it when it returns to the air. Thanks to Winter Is Coming, we now have an interview from Film Music Media to share with composer Ramin Djawadi, who is also worked on the music for such other shows including “Person of Interest” and “Breakout Kings.” The interview is not strictly reserved for the hit HBO series, but there is still plenty of “Game of Thrones” discussed in addition to some of Djwadi’s other work. We’re not sure that there is any other score that he has worked on thus far that has received this same level of high notoriety not only hear in America, but also all around the globe.
On a personal note, we’re just overjoyed to see that Djwadi is getting a moment in the spotlight to begin with. Unless your name is John Williams or Howard Shore, composers are often some of the most-forgotten members of the television industry, especially those who do their work for television. We have so many classic themes and scores ingrained into our memory, but only just a small percentage of us actually know who were the wizards behind them.
