Jeff Beal is the composer behinds the cues for Netflix's original politco drama House of Cards. Now, Mr. Beal is hoping to bring the music from the Emmy-nominated series to symphony venues across the globe.
While fans of the series must wait until next spring to see if Kevin Spacey's Frank Underwood will remain in the oval office, Beal is hoping to whet their appetite by synchronizing images from the show with a 55-minute House of Cards symphony. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Beal said that he "workshopped it at the Eastman School a few months ago, and we are in the early stages of getting the rights worked out so we can take this out to orchestras all over the world."
Classicalites, you can watch a snipet of what Beal has been working on to that end up in Rochester.
Beal's goal is to premiere the new symphony as early as the end of 2015, and he is working with Columbia Artists Management Inc. to figure out the logistics of presenting and touring his piece. In that interview with THR, Beal is careful not to give anything away about the upcoming season four storyline, but he does intimate that they are picking up where they left off at the end of season three. That is, with a very unpopular President Underwood whose wife, Claire (Robin Wright), has left him.
Speaking at the Krakow Film Music Festival in Poland, Beal revealed that "musically, as the story sort of unravels, I'm also having to uncover the next layer of the onion," reports the Chicago Times Post.
