The German-Iranian composer added, "This season will have new material that we haven't heard before, but lots of the existing themes will also return. It started out intentionally small but as the story expanded, the dragons arrived, the battles grew, the drama got bigger and bigger, the music had to grow with it. We added bigger orchestras, more choir, more instrumentation all around."

When the 'GoT' executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss approached him, he had worked with Hans Zimmer on several projects but didn't have many solo credits.

Apart from 'GoT', he had TV's 'Prison Break', a remake of 'Clash of the Titans' and 'Iron Man' to his credit. 

The final season has the largest ensemble yet -- a 60-piece orchestra, a 40-voice mixed chorus and a 12-voice children choir.

In another news, the cast members of the show got together for the final season's New York premiere. See photos.
