mr-robotMac Quayle is scoring the upcoming USA original series Mr. Robot. The show is created by Sam Esmail (Comet) and stars Rami Malek, Christian Slater, Portia Doubleday, Martin Wallstrom and Carly Chaikin. The thriller follows a young programmer, who works as a cyber-security engineer by day and as a vigilante hacker by night and finds himself at a crossroads when the mysterious leader of an underground hacker group recruits him to destroy the firm he is paid to protect. Esmail is also producing the Universal Cable production with Steve Golin (True Detective, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless MindBabel) and Chad Hamilton (Comet). The pilot of Mr. Robot just premiered at the SXSW Film Festival and the show’s first season of 10 episodes will premiere this summer on USA.

Quayle’s other upcoming projects also include the indie comedy Frank & Cindy starring Oliver Platt & Rene Russo and the documentary Autism in Love. He also recently scored FX’s American Horror Story: Freak Show.

    Symphony No. 7 in A Major, Op. 92: II. Allegretto, #RoyalPhilharmonicOrchestra

    There is a reason Beethoven anchors and was picked by Mr. Sam Esmail to power Mr. Robot.
    Mr. Sam Esmail knows he has been guided to write, direct, and produce Mr. Robot.
    Beethoven’s music changed the psyche of Europe.
    It freed people from the mind control of the Vatican.
    He knew that his music was going to do this.
    Real Power can work through Beethoven’s music, because of Ludwig’s design signature.
    The spirit of Beethoven is alive in our now, working at ultra high and super ultra low frequencies and vibration.
    Change is happening. The wrongly constructed delusion of the illusion we call reality is going away.
    There is purpose functioning now. The #WhatIsNeededRule is in charge now.

    It may be worth while to study the VISUAL: Beethoven, Symphony 7, Allegretto, mvt 2
