With the seventh season of Game of Thrones set to premiere next month, HBO has released a brand new featurette that offers fans a behind-the-scenes look at composer Ramin Djawadi’s work on the show’s epic and haunting score.
Ramin Djawadi talked about how he attempts to create a new sound for the score each year:
“In Game of Thrones we always laugh because every season we sit down and we say, ‘OK, which instrument haven’t we used yet.'”
Ramin Djawadi discussed how each season challenges him to improve on his work from the previous year:
“Every year I go, ‘OK, now I really have to do something that I haven’t done before.’ The show definitely takes it up another notch every season. Even though whenever I think it’s not possible, they still are able to elevate it yet another notch, and so I gotta do the same with the music.”
