“A good score should have a point of view all of its own. It should transcend all that has gone before, stand on its own two feet and still serve the movie. A great soundtrack is all about communicating with the audience, but we all try to bring something extra to the movie that is not entirely evident on screen.” -- Hans Zimmer (Interstellar, Gladiator, The Dark Knight, The Lion King)
Ramin Djawadi's unmistakable score was one of Game of Thrones most evocative elements. Light of the Seven below was the score that accompanied the "nuclear detonation" by one of the show's most diabolical characters to wipe out her adversaries. You can imagine how it played out just by listening to this piece.
