Jeff Beal is an American composer with a genre-defying musical fluidity.  His work has been nominated for nineteen, and won five Primetime Emmy awards for scores for House of Cards (Netflix), Rome (HBO), Carnivale (HBO) Nightmares and Dreamscapes (TNT), Monk (USA) and Oliver Stone’s The Putin Interviews (Showtime). Noted film scores include the documentaries The Biggest Little Farm and Blackfish, and dramas Pollock (dir. Ed Harris) and Shock and Awe (dir. Rob Reiner), and Raymond & Ray (dir. Rodrigo Garcia) on Apple TV+.<br /> <br /> Beal composes, orchestrates, conducts, mixes and often performs on his own scores. An accomplished and recorded jazz musician, Beal uses his improvisational skills to read the emotional tone of a scene. “This process allows me to envision a world where anything can happen,” says Beal. <br /> <br /> Photo Credit: Jeff Beal by Fritz Myers
