Composer Mac Quayle on American Crime Story, working with Ryan Murphy, and more

Mac Quayle Interview American Crime Story Ryan Murphy Alex Moreland

More established composers mention this to up and coming composers, saying it’s really important that you develop your own voice, it’s really important to have a singular voice. I heard it a lot and so I think maybe it’s a little bit of a daunting target to hit.

And so it’s not something I’ve really set out to [do, thinking that] I need to develop this voice. Rather I just do the work that I’ve been asked to do and I try to be as creative as possible and try to do something unique if I can, and I’m making decisions while doing that that are inferred from my own experiences and my own tastes and life and all of that, and so hopefully the final product then does have this, some sort of stamp on it that you might able to identify as my voice.

I spoke with Mac Quayle a while back about American Crime StoryThe Assassination of Gianni Versace, as well as – across a wider discussion of his history of collaborations with Ryan Murphy – American Horror Story, Feud, and Scream Queens.
