‘Game Of Thrones’ Composer Ramin Djawadi Jams On A Nintendo Labo

While many fans lie in wait for the delayed 8th season of Game of Thrones, the series’ indispensable Iranian-German composer Ramin Djawadi is exploring new technology. Today, IGN released a wonderful video showcasing Djawadi’s talents with Nintendo’s new kid-friendly cardboard toy sensation Labo for the Switch.

From the first moments of the Labo’s crunchy bass line emoting what might be HBO’s most instantly recognizable theme, Djawadi immediately conjures the feel of the intro credits. While he’s politely assisted by IGN staff, it’s remarkable what can be conveyed with a consumer game system. Or, to quote IGN: “This was pretty special. Who knew the Game of Thrones theme would sound so good coming out of cats?!”

Djawadi’s fun video arrives just in time to promote his newest adventure, the Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience, a European and North American tour which began last week and runs through mid-October. The event is the second such for the composer, complete with elaborate staging, a full multimedia component, and an 80-piece orchestra conducted by Djawadi. Last year’s event garnered rave reviews, with The Observer calling it, “The best night ever.”

Otherwise, you can hear Ramin Djawadi’s beautiful contributions on HBO’s Westworld, which is currently in its second season. And, of course, hear him jamming out on the Nintendo Labo.
