I am Mac Quayle, Emmy-winning composer for Mr. Robot, American Horror Story: Cult, & The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story. AMA!
I loved my last reddit AMA and I am excited to be back.
Currently, I score the music for hacker suspense-thriller Mr. Robot, created by Sam Esmail and starring Rami Malek, which will return for its 4th season this fall. I also regularly collaborate with Ryan Murphy, on his series like American Crime Story (most recently, on "The Assassination of Gianni Versace"), 9-1-1, and American Horror Story (most recently for "Cult"). I have written music for over 40 films, TV shows and documentaries.
Before working in film & television, I worked as a music and remix producer, working on projects featuring Madonna, Britney Spears, Beyonce, Sting, Jennifer Lopez, and Donna Summers.
I look forward to answering your questions about my love of jumping between the musical worlds of synth and orchestras, what is the key to character themes, and anything else you may be curious to know about me and my work.
Ask me anything! I look forward to your questions.
EDIT: Thanks so much for the great questions reddit! I am taking a break for now, but will check back in over the next day or so to try and answer a few more.
