Game of Thrones

Stephen Warbeck was the original composer during early production on Game of Thrones but he withdrew from the project on February 2, 2011, and none of his work subsequently appeared in the TV series.

Djawadi was then hired to be the TV series's composer, which he continued to work on from Season 1 through Season 8. In addition to the main themes and incidental music, Djawadi also composed the main series theme used in the Title sequence.
