Editors’ Notes Composer Jeff Beal details his ongoing musical collaboration with House of Cards producer David Fincher: “Very similarly to what we did with season one, David gave me some ideas about where he thought the second season should go. He sent me one little piece of music to listen to that was very helpful—by Angelo Badalamenti for The Comfort of Strangers, a Paul Schrader film. It sounds very much like The Godfather in a way. Basically that was a little shorthand for him saying he felt like the second season was going to want to be even a little darker and a little more sweeping. You know Kevin Spacey's character is going for the brass ring in season two.” Beal also notes the season’s evolving musical tone is both unusual and gratifying. “I was able to expand the [House of Cards] world even further because of where the story was going."
