Ramin Djawadi, Grammy® and Emmy® Award-Nominated Composer, to Perform Music from Game of Thrones® Live on KCRW’S Morning Becomes Eclectic
Tuesday, December 12, in the 11:00 AM PST Hour
Santa Monica, CA (December 4, 2017) – Multi Grammy® and Emmy® Award-nominated composer Ramin Djawadi will perform a special, intimate performance of Game of Thrones® music on KCRW’s flagship music program Morning Becomes Eclectic on Tuesday, December 12, in celebration of the release of Season Seven of the hit HBO series on Blu-rayTM and DVD. The live performance will air in the 11:00 AM PST hour on 89.9 FM, and around the world at KCRW.com, and via Facebook Live.
The performance will give fans a taste of what they can expect when the critically acclaimed Game of Thrones® Live Concert Experience Featuring Ramin Djawadi brings the world of Westeros to arenas across Europe starting in May of 2018 and returns for a second North American leg of the tour in the fall of 2018. Djawadi’s music from the latest season – the Game of Thrones (Music from the HBO® Series) Season 7 Soundtrack – has just been released as a special double vinyl set by WaterTower Music.
Last week Ramin Djawadi was nominated for his second Grammy® Award for ‘Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media’ for his work on Game of Thrones® Season Seven. Djawadi’s previous credits include the Grammy®-nominated score for Marvel’s 2008 blockbuster, Iron Man. Other film credits include Pacific Rim, Clash Of The Titans and Warcraft. In addition to Game Of Thrones®, Ramin also garnered Emmy® Award nominations for other television projects including the hit HBO® series Westworld, Flash Forward (ABC) and Prison Break (FOX). Ramin also recently scored the feature film The Mountain Between Us which is in theatres now.
As rich as the stories, intrigue and world of Game of Thrones®, Ramin’s celebrated music for the show has resonated with fans from the very beginning, as the meticulously constructed songs underscored the emotional weight of key moments between beloved characters, lent scale to massive battle sequences and brought to life songs referenced in George R.R. Martin’s books. Ramin’s relentlessly popular title track alone has become an instantly recognizable pop culture phenomenon in its own right.
Based on the bestselling fantasy book series by George R.R. Martin, Game of Thrones® is an epic story of treachery and nobility set on the continent of Westeros, where summers and winters can last years, and only the lust for power is eternal. The Emmy®- and Golden Globe Award-winning series has captured the imagination of fans globally, making it one of the most popular shows on television.
