Mad Malcolm is a one-man team of digital music creation. He\'s a writer, artist, composer and keyboardist with jazz influences. He has a deep love for the arts, the beats, the funky music, the newest technology and the underground culture that help create enlightenment through shared experiences. Energy, music, technology... Mad Malcolm now produces original music from his home studio in Lake Stevens, WA... In the early years he spent time working for Ervin Entertainment in a basement studio creating Hip-Hop, R&B beats, and background tracks. During this time he decided to continue on with jazz studies and pursue his own material. With a minor in Music from Eastern Washington University, and a BA in Marketing, Mad Malcolm took his love of music into the studio. He began using Sonic Foundry\'s Acid Pro and Sound Forge for sampling and sequencing and the beats just seemed to flow from his fingers. As an ex-PC guy turned Mac user, Mad Malcolm now uses Apple\'s Logic, Soundtrack, and Garageband software for recording and producing. He also uses Propellerhead\'s Reason for geeked out MIDI, and Ableton\'s Live! For live electronic performances. Samples and loops are the palette through which he works. Mad Malcolm draws from a diverse listening background that includes everything from Duke Ellington to James Brown, to Tribe Called Quest, to Prodigy and Paul Oakenfold, to Mozart and pretty much anything that fits his mood... Mad Malcolm madly purchased loop CD\'s years ago and now has an extensive library of of loops and samples that span gigabytes. These also include many original samples with which he can work. Mad Malcolm also records live instruments, vocals, and more... In creative fits that sometimes last until 4am, he blends these random samples into creative expressions, soundscapes and funky beats... Energy - Music - Technology.
