Mr. Robot: Original Television Series Soundtrack Volume 3
Explosive, tense and atmospheric: Emmy-winning and Grammy-nominated New York composer Mac Quayle returns with Mr. Robot: Original Television Series Soundtrack Volume 3. Released on Invada in December 2017 this double LP weaves electronic music, orchestral production and raw noise to create a soundtrack that is as violent as its ‘Crystal clear with white and red splatter pressing’.
The album’s harsh and industrial tones accentuate the series’ theme of cybercrime; often Quayle uses helicopter turbine samples or dial-up tones to produce an eerie drone-like backdrop. However, in other areas the album is incredibly cinematic with dramatic crescendos produced by live orchestral instruments. Therefore, the listening experience is extremely varied and because of Quayle’s massive tonal palette it can be enjoyed as a standalone piece of art for those without an interest in Mr. Robot
Quayle’s work was an excellent soundtrack for the critically acclaimed TV series Mr. Robot, which won a Golden Globe in 2015 and has been nominated for six Emmys. However, it is an undeniably exciting and tasteful blend of musical elements that forms a dark and suspenseful double album.
Released: December 2017
