April 23 (UPI) -- The opening sequence to HBO's hit series "Game of Thrones" is one of the most mesmerizing on television, and its music can be heard here coming from a bell tower at the University of Wisconson-Madison.
The UW-Madison Carillon was originally dedicated in 1936 and has 56 bells ranging in size from 15 to 6,823 pounds. Lyle Anderson has been UW-Madison's official carillonneur for almost 30 years, and this video shows him playing the fantasy's opening theme.
