All Music Guide:
A multi-talented producer of music for films, television, and video games, Iranian-German composer Ramin Djawadi honed his considerable talents alongside contemporaries like Klaus Badelt, John Debney, Harry Gregson-Williams, and Steve Jablonsky while working for veteran composer Hans Zimmer's Remote Control Productions film score company. He worked as an assistant to the aforementioned Badelt before venturing out on his own with the RZA-assisted score for director David Goyer's Blade: Trinity (2004). He continued to work with Goyer, providing music for both film (The Unborn) and television (FlashForward), earning an Emmy nomination for the latter. In 2008 Djawadi, a longtime fan of the Marvel character, provided the guitar-heavy score for director Jon Favreau's big screen rendering of Iron Man, and in 2011 he provided the memorable (and oft-covered) theme and incidental music for HBO's massively popular fantasy series Game of Thrones. Subsequent film scores have included Clash of the Titans, Red Dawn, and Pacific Rim.
