My podcast with Mark Pyjama

Why would you want to rule the world when you can have your own planet?

Mark Allnutt is the creative force that drives Pyjama Solutions like Pyjama Planet Studios and Pyjama Planet Samples.

He is also a firm believer in being a Jack of all trades and master of some. As a creator and producer, Mark isn’t tied to a specific genre. He has composed a wide variety of music for bands, brands, and video games. He was one of the music producers for Boet Fighter and Cartoon Network.

“Digirek” is a single that Mark wrote for the Polish development team (DarkLord) in 2019, for a Japanese styled game that didn’t get made.

In writing that music for them, for free, it solidified him a place on the team for their current project which is funded. This game is called GlitchPunk, and is a Cyberpunk top-down shooter like Grand theft auto 2.

Mark creates, produces, and mixes and masters the samples for Pyjama Planet Samples and can be purchased on his website. He recently sat down with Quintus and Baker in the Quintessential Underground to talk about the music creation process and play some of his awesome tunes:

As a solo artist, Mark composes metal music but in such a way that he isn’t tied down by the genre. He introduces various elements and techniques in his tracks. His upcoming album is constructed with a mixture of metal music with orchestral sounds and synths. The album “Madjenta” is based around a seven-string guitar, whereas the previous album is based around a six-string guitar.

We might not know the exact release date for the album but we are excited to see what Mark creates until then.

Mark ‘Pyjama’ Allnutt’s PR is managed by David Devo Oosthuizen from Devographic.
