Mr. Malcolm Brown, also known as LyleMusic, is a Vocaloid composer like many others here. His works have a celtic touch and he mixes them with technology by using primarily vocaloid Miriam.

First will take a look at Ecapsule the company, what they did with Sonika, the finally the latest of the Engloid imports with eCapsule Corp’s take on Zero-G’s Prima & Tonio as well as PowerFX’s Big Al & Sweet Ann.
