As a composer, Mac’s music was most recently heard on FX’s hit series American Horror Story: Freak Show, starring Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett. Quayle’s 2015 is showing no signs of slowing, as he is currently working on Fox’s new highly anticipated horror-comedy anthology Scream Queens, starring Emma Roberts and Jamie Lee Curtis, as well as USA Network’s suspense-thriller Mr. Robot, starring Christian Slater, which recently premiered at this year’s SXSW Festival. Mac will also be scoring the next season of American Horror Story: Hotel, starring Lady Gaga and Matt Bomer. In addition to Mac’s television work, he has also composed music for a diverse list of feature films and documentaries. His music for the documentary Autism in Love premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in April. Mac’s music as an additional composer for Cliff Martinez can also be heard in HBO’s Emmy-winning The Normal Heart, Film District’s Critic’s Choice Award-winning Drive, Warner Bros.’ Contagion and A24’s Spring Breakers. In 2013, Mac was chosen as one of only six composers to participate in Sundance’s Music and Sound Design Lab at Skywalker Ranch. As a producer, re-mixer and keyboardist, Mac has worked on over 300 releases, 40 #1 Billboard Dance hits, and earned a GRAMMY® nomination for producing Donna Summer’s “I Will Go with You.” Quayle has been awarded numerous Gold and Platinum records, as well as worked with some of the biggest names in the music business. Mac has created music for Madonna, Whitney Houston, Depeche Mode, Britney Spears, Elvis Presley, Annie Lennox, New Order, Beyonce and Sting, to name a few. When asked about his career highlights, Mac responded, “I have been very fortunate to work with so many talented people over the years. However, there is one special moment that stands out for me: Playing ping pong with Peter Gabriel at Real World Studios.” Mac lives, works and plays ping pong in the mountains near Los Angeles.
