Five Things You Didn’t Know about Ramin Djawadi

Ramin Djawadi is a well-known Iranian-German music composer who has worked on a wide range of famous projects over the course of his career. For example, a lot of people will be familiar with his work through Game of Thrones. Furthermore, other examples range from Clash of the Titans and Pacific Rim to Prison Break and Westworld, though it should be noted that these make up no more than a small part of his overall body of work.

Here are five things that you may or may not have known about Ramin Djawadi:

Inspired By The Magnificent Seven

Djawadi was inspired to become a music composer by The Magnificent Seven, which was an American western based on Japanese samurai drama called Seven Samurai. He has stated that he loved the movie so much that he watched it on a daily basis, though it is interesting to note that he was a huge fan of other American westerns as well when he was still a child growing up in Germany.

Studied at Berklee College of Music

As a college student, Djawadi studied at the Berklee College of Music, which can be found in Boston, Massachusetts. For those who are curious, the Berklee College of Music is an independent college that specializes in the study of contemporary music, though it should be noted that it offers classes on historical styles as well. It is well-known in its particular field, which is perhaps unsurprising when it is the biggest college of its kind in not just the United States but also the whole of the world.

Came to the Attention of Hans Zimmer

Upon graduating from Berklee College of Music, Djawadi came to the attention of Hans Zimmer, with the result that he was recruited to Zimmer’s Remote Control Productions. As a result, Djawadi contributed to both Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl and Something’s Gotta Give as well as a much-beloved video game called System Shock 2. In turn, Djawadi’s success on a wide range of projects enabled him to strike out on his own.

His Favorite Character on Game of Thrones Is Daenerys

In regards to Game of Thrones, Djawadi’s favorite character is Daenerys Targaryen. In part, this is because of her rise from no one of real importance to becoming what the books called a subject of both dreams and nightmares for a full continent. Furthermore, Djawadi has stated that he is a big fan of the dragons, which is perhaps unsurprising for someone who has worked on such a wide range of fantasy-themed media.

Doesn’t Listen to Film Music

Given his career, it should come as no surprise to learn that Djawadi is a huge music fan who listens to a wide range of music when he feels that he needs inspiration for one of his projects. However, it is interesting to note that he never listens to film music when he searches for inspiration for the simple reason that he doesn’t want to be influenced by someone else’s work, which seems like a smart and sensible course of action for a music composer.
