The rich stripped down sounds set a perfect backdrop for the action-thriller.
Djawadi, who set the moods for Iron Man, Batman Begins, Fright Night, Clash of the Titans, & Game of Thrones does another excellent job here, though more restrained and clearly designed for the movie than his usual work… For his Ramin’s sounds, you really should check out his Game of Thrones soundtrack work. If you are looking for the song featured in the trailers, you’ll want to pick up for the “Watch The Throne” album by Jay-Z & Kanye West for the track “No Church In the Wild” featuring James Brown samples and guest vocals by Frank Ocean. Get a taste of the sounds of “Watch The Throne” as well as “Game of Thrones” & “Safe House” below:

Check out this cool video celebrating the life of the composer Prokofiev.
We love the pencil thick, distinguished animation style… and of course the music!
If you are unfamiliar with Prokofiev, you should treat yourself to 3 and a half hours of his works as performed by Barbara Nissman. Although just released in digital form for the first time on February 7, 2012, “Prokofiev by Nissman” was recorded in 1989, before the art of capturing classical piano performances was truly mastered. That said, you won’t find a more compelling library of the works of Prokofiev.
