A Conversation With Composer Ramin Djawadi
November 7, 2016 • 8:00 pm PST
GRAMMY and Emmy Award-nominated composer Ramin Djawadi resembles a “musical chameleon.” Versatility has defined his career thus far from celebrated television scores for “Game of Thrones,” “Prison Break,” “Person of Interest,” and the new hit show “Westworld,” as well as blockbuster films such as Pacific Rim, Iron Man, Clash of the Titans, and more. His engaging, entrancing, and elegant compositions have averaged over 1.8 million plays a month on Spotify, while spawning countless viral covers and even topping Billboard‘s Top Soundtracks chart. Beginning in February 2017, Djawadi is taking his music on a 28-city tour with the Game of Thrones® Live Concert Experience — an immersive music and visual experience that will bring the Seven Kingdoms to life on a scale never seen before. Using state-of-the-art technology, Djawadi, along with a full orchestra and choir, will take fans on a musical journey through the realm — from King’s Landing to Winterfell, along the northern stretches of the Kingsroad to The Wall and across the Narrow Sea to Braavos, Meereen and beyond. Djawadi’s celebrated music for the show resonated immediately with fans as the meticulously constructed songs underscored the emotional weight of key moments between beloved characters, lent scale to massive battle sequences or brought to life songs referenced in the books. The tour will use innovative music tour production and video technology that will recreate the various realms found throughout Westeros and Essos as well as showcase footage from the show in addition to all new imagery created exclusively for the tour. The GRAMMY Museum welcomes Ramin Djawadi to the Clive Davis Theater for an intimate conversation on his extraordinary composing career, collaborations with such artists as Sigur Ros, Tom Morello, The RZA and Paul Westerberg and the upcoming Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience tour. The conversation will be moderated by Julia Cunningham, host at SiriusXM/Entertainment Weekly Radio’s L.A. Daily.
