Join us on Saturday, September 21st for the latest installment of the Ellington Group study, hosted by Scott Healy, and featuring our very special guest Jeff Beal (House of Cards, Monk, Blackfish, The Queen of Versailles). This jazz-oriented discussion will continue our exploration about scoring techniques in film noir. We’ll discuss how linear, chromatic, and non-functional harmony are all parts of the jazz and film composer’s toolkit, starting back in the 1940’s and continuing to present day. We’ll ask Jeff about his jazz influences, his trumpet background, and noir chromatic harmony in his highly lauded score for House of Cards, and about his upcoming commission from the LA Master Chorale. Jeff has a wealth of wisdom to share about how he scores under dialogue. Don’t miss this unforgettable meeting with a modern legend in film and television scoring.
