Music of Game of Thrones

game of thrones

Performed by The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra
Music Composed by Ramin Djawadi

In 2011 composer Ramin Djawadi was first asked to score a new TV series called Game of Thrones. In its first season much of the music was written for a small string ensemble, and filled out with synthetic pads and percussion. Over the course of the next six seasons the music budget got bigger and bigger to match the ever-increasing viewing figures the show was enjoying. This release celebrates the rich tapestry of music over the six series with the full firepower of an 80 piece symphony orchestra and choir.

Game of Thrones really is a television phenomenon. HBO’s epic small screen adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s series of fantasy tomes continues to draw in record audiences around the world, and shows no signs of slowing down. Indeed some 8.9m people tuned in to the Season Six finale in the US and with repeats, recordings and on-demand viewings taken into consideration, it is estimated that Game of Thrones enjoys an average of 23m viewers per installment. With a whopping thirty-eight Emmy Awards (and counting), this series remains the darling of prime-time pay TV.

With so much music created for the sixty episodes so far broadcast, this album can of course only take in so much. The particular cues and themes it does highlight, though, lend themselves beautifully to this symphonic re-imagining.

Seven years from its debut Sherlock is a worldwide phenomenon licensed to over 225 territories and equally popular with cinema showings alongside TV transmissions. In the UK Season 3 was the most watched TV drama series since 2001 attracting 11.8m viewers. 

Great mystery stories, the cream of British acting talent, stunning production values and of course the vital musical score from David Arnold (Independence Day, The World Is Not Enough) and Michael Price (Jekyll & Hyde, Unforgotten). 

The Emmy Award winning composers return with more fresh takes on the characters and situations. Sherlock is a series that doesn’t wallow in its success as David Arnold explains, “I think we both want to move it on every time. If the show stands still then the music does too and it all grinds to a halt…so we are always trying to find something new to do with it”.

“If David Arnold and Michael Price did not exist, it would be necessary for man to invent them. Their contribution to Sherlock is immeasurable. Thrilling, cheeky, sinister, playful and simply world-class…the music’s not bad either.” Mark Gatiss (Sherlock and League Of Gentlemen creator).

RAN – Toru Takemitsu
Original music by TORU TAKEMITSU

Over a 60 year career director Akira Kurosawa’s films have passed into cinematic legend and he retains his status as one of the most influential and preeminent film-makers of the 20th Century.

Films such as Rashomon, Seven Samurai, Kagemusha and his last great epic, Ran are all regarded as milestones in the history of celluloid. The latter, the most expensive film made in Japan up to its release in 1985 is loosely based on Japanese legend and Shakespeare’s King Lear.

Composer Toru Takemitsu ranks as highly in the echelons
of Japanese music as Kurosawa in film with a prolific output
of soundtracks alongside major music works and books.

Commissioned on Kurosawa’s instructions to deliver a score inspired by Mahler with up to 40 disparate takes of music, the spectral and eerie sounds capture perfectly the imagery on screen.

Originally released as two separate suites of music this version includes those and adds a further 14 tracks of Takemitsu’s score.

And Then There Were None
Music By Stuart Earl
Original Television Soundtrack

Stuart Earl’s score to the BBC adaptation of Agatha Christie’s best- selling thriller, And Then There Were None, nominated for the 61st Ivor Novello Awards in the Best Television Soundtrack category.

Stuart Earl’s previous scores have been described as “mood-enhancing” (Hollywood Reporter), “reflective” (Nouse) “evocative” (Film-Forward), “dreamlike” (Little White Lies). His mastery is not to underline, but to draw from the story and characters, and to craft an exquisite sound world, and this is what he accomplishes in And Then There Were None. A meditation on guilt, the 3-part drama serial premiered in the UK December 26th to 28th on BBC One in the UK. The series averaged 8.7 million viewers, with 9.5 million people tuning into the first night and garnered widespread critical acclaim.

“The soundtrack sounded incredible in the cinema. I was very f**king happy indeed… Revel in the sound of a bombastic and hubristic 70s that was doomed to failure… Enjoy.” Ben Wheatley

‘’Proud to proclaim that in divisive world of Ben Wheatley’s High Rise, I’m solidly in the YES camp. Particular plaudits to Clint Mansell’’ – Mark Kermode – BBC

Golden Globe and Grammy nominated composer Clint Mansell’s brooding, edgy and beautifully unsettled orchestral score to Ben Wheatley’s eagerly awaited film adaptation of J.G Ballard’s High-Rise.
 
Described by Hollywood Reporter as “a lustrous retro-classical score bursting with ironic good cheer”, Clint Mansell’s music has a meaty, steadfast presence throughout the visual spectacular of the savage societal breakdown.

Former Pop Will Eat Itself frontman turned soundtrack composer, Clint Mansell is best known for his work with long time collaborator Darren Aronofsky (Requiem for a Dream, Black Swan, The Fountain, Noah). He also scored Duncan Jones’ Directorial debut Moon, and He has also lent to his talent to films as diverse as Filth, Faster, and Last Night.

Starring Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans, Elisabeth Moss, High-Rise is a visionary tale of human society slipping into extreme violence. The once-peaceful residents of a desirable apartment block quickly spiral into a world ruled by primal urges in which elevators become vicious battlegrounds and cocktail parties degenerate into brutal raids on “enemy” floors.

The film received its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2015, its European premiere at the 63rd San Sebastián Film Festival and is scheduled for release in the United Kingdom on 18 March 2016 through StudioCanal.
