In every wonderful movie that succeeded to arouse any sort of feelings in the hearts of the audience, there is this kind of exquisite and delicate touch of magic that stimulates all of those feelings slyly and immerses us deep down in the movie’s piquancy.
This touch of magic is music. The music that, since the dawn of the silver screen, played a huge role in shaping and crafting the art of cinematography. Starting with the silent movies and prospering to this present day, music kept flourishing and preserved its magical touch and all of this is thanks to the brilliant and artful composers such as John Williams, Maurice Jarre, James Horner, Hans Zimmer, and many more.
If I ever have all the time I need I will readily write an article about each and every movie music composer, for I sincerely avow that the work of these sublime artists bewitched my heart every time and gratified my thirst for that mystic harmonious aridity.
This time I have chosen Ramin Djawadi, one of the famous and brilliant composers of all time, for I truly admire his work and see great eminence in it. The German-Iranian composer Ramin Djawadi was born in 1974 Duisburg, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany the home of the greatest composers that the world ever known, and now we add to that list another name, the name of Persian origin, Ramin Djawadi.
After graduating for Berkley College of Music in 1998, Ramin got the attention of Hans Zimmer and got recruited to remote control productions. After, Ramin moved to LA and worked with Klaus Badlet the German composer famously known for his work The Time Machine (2002) and Constantine (2006). Ramin assisted Badlet in many works such as Teknolust (2002) and Beat the Drum (2003).
After working with Zimmer and Badlet, Ramin started his own journey to greatness with his first work by composing the pieces for Blade: Trinity (2004), Iron Man (2008), Prison Break (2009), Clash of Titans and Medal of Honor (2010), Game of Thrones and Pacific Rim (2013), Person of Interest (2014), Warcraft and Westworld (2016).
