Game of Thrones
Game of Thrones (soundtrack) album cover
soundtrack album by Ramin Djawadi
Released 2011-06-14
Length 66 minutes 0 seconds
Label Varèse Sarabande

Game of Thrones is the soundtrack album for the first season of the eponymous fantasy TV show by the U.S. cable channel HBO. The album was composed by the German composer Ramin Djawadi and published by Varèse Sarabande in June 2011.

The music is instrumental and features one major theme, the Main Title, which accompanies the show's opening credits.

Production and release

The soundtrack to Game of Thrones was originally slated to be composed by Stephen Warbeck. On 2 February 2011, only ten weeks prior to the show's premiere, it was reported that Warbeck had left the project and Ramin Djawadi had been commissioned to write the music instead.[1]

The album was made available for download on iTunes on 14 June 2011, together with a "digital booklet". It was released on CD on 28 June 2011, 41 days after the show's premiere.

Reception

Richard Buxton of Tracksounds wrote an ambivalent review, calling the album a "valiant effort" and Djawadi's "most consistently satisfying work to date", but criticized the main theme as falling short of the expectations raised by the opening credits' animated sequence, and the score as a whole as "never quite reaching what it could have been".[2]

The main theme has inspired "countless" tributes and cover versions, according to TV.com.[3] These include a violin version by Jason Yang[4], a metal version by Roger Lima[5], and a bleeping "8-bit" remix in the style of early video game music.[6]
