Miss ‘Game of Thrones’?

The Myanmar Times - - The Pulse -

CELLISTS, vi­o­lin­ists and even the Queen’s Guard have cov­ered Game of Thrones’ theme mu­sic but now fans will be able to see it per­formed on a whole bat­tal­ion of in­stru­ments con­ducted by Ramin Djawadi, the com­poser. Tick­ets went on sale this week­end for the Game of Thrones Live Con­cert Ex­pe­ri­ence, which will bring Djwadi, a full orches­tra and a choir to 28 cities across Amer­ica be­gin­ning in Fe­bru­ary of next year.

Djawadi got the idea when play­ing some new mu­sic to Game of Thrones cre­ators DB Weiss and David Be­nioff. “They said, ‘I want to see this live. How cool would it be if we had a choir and an orches­tra on stage?’”

So which of the show’s mu­sic will fans hear? “We have so much ma­te­rial, I’m still dig­ging through the pile of mu­sic,” Djawadi says, adding that he’s fine-tuned some of the ar­range­ments and ex­panded on other pieces. “We have a pretty good idea of the scope of it, and the idea is to touch upon the dif­fer­ent houses and themes and all of the great mo­ments of the show.”

Those in at­ten­dance can ex­pect in­ti­mate mo­ments, like the Stark theme mu­sic, and more bom­bas­tic pieces like “Mhysa”, the song that plays dur­ing the third sea­son fi­nale. Speak­ing of sea­son fi­nales, “Light of the Seven”, the gor­geous ac­com­pa­ni­ment that kicked off the re­cent sixth sea­son fi­nale, is sure to be in­cluded or it might cre­ate a fan up­ris­ing that not even Cer­sei Lan­nis­ter could sup­press.

While most of the ex­pe­ri­ence will be au­ral, there will still be a vis­ual com­po­nent, with some footage of the show play­ing while
