Lauded for "adding an air of cold, chilling mystery and tension to the twisting narrative," the Mr. Robot score is more than merely background music -- and the themes within the music will only continue to develop in season two. USA Network chatted with composer Mac Quayle about his background in electronic music and the process of scoring for the award-winning series. Here's what we learned about the soundtrack, which is out today.
In the much anticipated Season 1 finale, Elliot finds himself in a world half celebrating its newfound freedom from debt in the streets and half managing the fallout of the hack in crumbling corporations – all as a direct result of the fsociety plan that Elliot has no recollection of executing. A poignant soundtrack surrounds the chaos, confusion, and carnage that swirls around Elliot and the revolution he started.
Elliot finds himself face-to-face with the elusive whiterose and is faced with a new challenge to remove Gideon's honeypot server within fifty hours or he loses the support of the Dark Army, and Tyrell also finds himself against the clock when police arrive at Evil Corp to investigate the murder of Sharon Knowles. Even the underlying music seems drives the episode forward, punctuating perfectly everyone’s race against time.
