Journey Into This
Playing jazz charts in and out of college bands for over five years, Mad Malcolm only recently began to produce original music. In the early years he spent time working for Ervin Entertainment in a basement studio creating Hip-Hop and R&B beats and background tracks. During this time he decided to continue on with jazz studies and to pursue his own material. With only a minor in Music at Eastern Washington University, and a major in Marketing, Mad Malcolm took a love of music into the studio. He began using Sonic Foundry's Acid Music for sampling and sequencing and the beats just seemed to flow from his fingers. Samples and loops were the palette through which he could work. Drawing from a diverse listening background that included anything from Duke Ellington to James Brown to Tribe Called Quest to Prodigy and Chemical Brothers to Mozart to pretty much anything that fit his mood, Mad Malcolm madly began purchasing loop CD's and even generated original samples with which he could work. In creative fits that sometimes last until 4am he blends these random samples into creative expressions, soundscapes and funky beats... Energy. Music. Technology. The result of that synergy is Mad Malcolm Productions, Inc. And it's just beginning...
