No flutes allowed: Composer Ramin Djawadi on the music of 'Game of Thrones'

German-Iranian film composer Ramin Djawadi is behind the hit soundtracks for Game of Thrones and is currently conducting the Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience during a sellout European tour.

Game of Thrones is set in a mystical, imaginary world — and yet the music sounds quite modern, nothing like the folklore-heavy sound that dominates many other fantasy films.
