And now for something a little more contemporary…

Ramin Djawadi is an Iranian-German composer, probably best known for his score for HBO’s popular television series Game of Thrones. He also covered all of the songs you hear interpreted into the old-timey clang of the player piano (aside from the two tracks here by the Vitamin String Quartet).

Hearing these compositions without their signature vocalists is really jarring and it always seems to take a moment while watching the show to place exactly what it is you are hearing. But I guess that is perfect for a show that is all about probing uncanniness and the authenticity of what appears to be laid out before you.

Give it a try. You might just be surprised…
