So, honestly speaking, we haven
t any need for an introduction. This Studio has been going since 04.
Audiostone started out with Singer Alfred, and guitarist Jesse.
They happened to come out with some steady songs, and repertoire of 18 songs, and more on the horizon!
Alfred has been living in Japan for nearly ten or more plus years, coming to the studio, to work with Producer Jesse Sou.
They will be soon be having a Photo Shoot out and about in the new dawn that awaits us all.
As for now, we give you the Tube`s slice of AudioStone.
“Thank you Kanon! -Papa”
“In The Beginning“
“I mean you gotta start off somewhere, right?!”
“Into the blue we go…”
“Give Him The Glory“
“You know who He is.”

We are also on Spotify as well.
So, recently we`ve been collaborating with Singer Songwriter in California- Jack Trudel.
He is well known in his circle of friends, as a prolific Songwriter.
AudioStone, offered to cover his song called “No Right Way To Do Wrong.”
It is a POP song on the advantageous spot of viewing things in a more enlightening matter.
We came to the conclusion, that the song needed a work-over. So, we opted for using real drums, through Edcore, and Cinemag Transformers.
Using primordial drum techniques, with the tools available.
For guitars we used the Womanizer by Damage Control, And the DLSMK3 pedal, as well as an assortment of EHX pedals.
Bass was tracked through the DI on the BLA 173 through the FMR AUDIO PBC6a Compressor, going through RME AD/DA. Into an Imperial DAW.
Stay tuned for- The Forged Mountains, by AudioStone.
Available real soon, on itunes, maaaybe Spotify, and if you
re lucky and are being a good boy, then maybe Amazon.t we!
Well see, won

New Band- Audio Stone, Has just released an album that will be available on all online stores in two weeks!
This has been a labor of love between Producer/Guitarist Jesse Sou Pritchard, and Vocalist/Songwriter Al Arroyo for the past three to four years.
“We haven’t really been recording these songs seriously until now”.
Why? Well there just hasn’t been enough need for it, in the secular realm, until now.
People want new music, people need to be entertained. And that is exactly what POP/Rock band Audio Stone, is all about.
We mastered a track from this album at Metropolis Studios. If that wasn’t enough, We have been tirelessly working on this album, and another one, from New Christian band, named- Sacred Stone. Which is an offshoot from Audio Stone.
We do hope you enjoy the titles, from this album, as much as we had fun making it!
This album is not released on Stillbliss Records.
It is an entire personal entity in itself.
If you ever wonder what keeps us going on, no matter what?
Well, blame it on our ADD!
Maybe we`re a different breed. But honestly today`s session of two hours was a hell of a lot of fun. Got to record with Legend singer and songwriter Alfred Arroyo Jr.
We recorded just the guitars, acosutic, and bass as well as Classical, and electric.
We are still using Cakewalk`s Sonar DAW. 8.5. Running on a WINDOWS XP PC.
I mean if it works, why fix it right?
We are also working closely with music Aficionado Chris Commander, with his stems he sends us through the mail.
God bless his soul. He pays us well!
And we aren`t shutting down for as far as I can tell!
Yesterday I had the pleasure of working on Chris Commander`s new tune called “The Corona Shake”.
I added a synth, bass, Guitars, and a beat, ran the stereo drums through the BLA 173. it really kicked the levels up quite a notch. The drums were lacking punch and volume. So with the BLA 173 PBC 6A Combo, we really added that extra silky smooth 1073 neve sound to the whole track.
We usually ask for 100$ for mixing a whole song. But I did this for Chris, as he is a very good client of ours and pays us well.
So, he is in the middle of redoing the vocals for this song.
I also added some acoustic playing for three acoustic songs of his acoustic numbers called:
“If this is peace”, “Smiling in the sun” and “Running Low”.
We mixed and sent off the mp3`s to him. now we just wait for him to answer us.
Thank you Chris, and thank you for reading, and tuning into our blissful channel.
He will be using Stillbliss Records as his label for release. So will Fando, after he contacts us about his mixes we sent him recently.
Bliss out folks!
So, first off, this IS a Studio`s blog.
So if you want to know what we`ve been up to these past few years, then this is the post you want to read today.
With the Covid19/Corona virus, and people panic buying, there ain`t no time for tunes. But honestly Chris Commander made a song called “Corona Virus (The Song)” for this pandemic.
Here is the youtube video.
We`ve also been spending time with family as well as washing our hands and gargling after going outside.
So, we really wish that you can come over to our studio`s.
Very soon we will be recording Fando. An artist with a backpack Martin guitar, who works for CocaCola.
Whattaya know! We have retro written all over us.
He- Fando, is a Singersongwriter.
He came from Argentina. Lived in Australia, and now is living here in Japan.
We don`t know for how much longer this outbreak will be but we hope you all are washing your hands and gargling after you`ve gone out of your house.
And stay up to date by staying blissed out and visit our blog for things POP!!
Why am I writing about the Stilbliss method? Well, I thought I`d give you a history of our studios.
We have been producing artists for the past decade or so now. And just not ANY artist. we have had people come from Australia, new Zealand, the UK, Africa, the US, you name it!
So, this morning I`ve got some time on my hands, so I thought I`d blog about what`s been happening in these walls of ours.
Sometimes people are attracted to a certain sound, that they consider POP music. not saying that that is a bad thing. But sometimes getting a taste of the underground scene of music, can make you take a better take on music in general.
Yes. I know, we are all duped by the major companies like Universal, Disney, marvel etc. So in a sense, we have NO SENSES. And we just float off to whatever direction that the climate is taking us.
Not saying that is bad either. but honestly, you won`t get the heritage of the underground music scene without first having a taste of it.
Basically what I`m trying to imprint on your mind is, just that, The Stillbliss Method.
Of course there are major labels, that can get your album onto major distributors of Physical media, ie, LP and CD`s.
But sometimes, you need to look for music yourself. That is the fun in life. Finding a sound you never thought existed. Again, YOU are the final decision maker, whether you`ll put down your hard earned dollar for that song you hear on the radio or online, whether it be soundcloud, YouTube, etc.
I recently myself have been searching for new tunes. On Youtube, etc.
But the search is all part of the pop culture. Yes, LP`s are coming back.
Here in Japan, people still buy CD`s. Which is like a digital copy of an LP.
Anyways, what I want to say in a nutshell is this- Go look for yourself. Don`t let the big names in the industry decide what you can or cannot listen to.
Let your conscious be your guide. And remember to take in the day, just as it comes to you. Take the day. Make it yours!
So, yeah. Honestly, they pay me pittance for recording these shows. Only 20$ for recording three shows. They have money but they think this is THEIR studio.
So, just recently, I made it clear to them that this is MY business. And I run it the way I want to. But of course all they say is- Well, we just won`t use you then.
Of course there are the polite people who actually pay the amount that it says on the fees page.
But all that ado, I give you their 17th rendition. Of their cheap ass talk show.
Here it is. My monitor speakers, one of them is broken, it intermittently works, and my mixer`s headphone jack needs replacement. And my DAW is having a hard time booting up. But they still only pay what THEY want to. Suckers!
Honestly people. Work for your time in a studio. So the engineer can keep the fucking studio running. And the gear running too.
So anyways, this is my life. I`m divorced because of people like this. Yes, this is not my day job, but it is ONE of my jobs. I hate people like Slingshotmillion. At least I`m not in their band anymore. That COMPLETELY sucked up all my money.
Bands suck. YouTubers as well. If you want to use a studio folks. Please pay the engineer something. not barely anything to keep a divorced man paying his rent and bills and support his family.
Yes. You may not want to hear it, but they came again.
To record another set of YouTube videos, basically radio talk shows in the space of about 15-20 minutes.
Yes you may want to hear about how all peachy things are. But honestly, I would give you all my skills, uduh, if I had any, to you. But honestly, I am getting paid squat for these recordings.
They think they are doing a service by coming over.
But no-one watches or listens to the stuff coming out of this studio anyways.
You all are probably just waiting for me to get ugly and fat sitting in front of this PC.
But honestly? This is not bliss. What is? Maybe gay people, maybe people who are working to listen to youtube videos.
But honestly, do you really think living off of junk food and SHIT really serves for me to be the one blogging about shit?
Honestly no. Just a sec, I need to smoke. No. I dont.
I am going to sip on a coke. Just a sec.
Alright, feeling a little bit better now.
But honestly. When you first came to this website, you were probably like, WTF is Stillbliss anyways.
Well, we started out as a band. Bands break up. People move on.
Me?? I kept on with the true feeling of music. Where you make music blissfully. not sitting behind some huge console thinking you are the boss. Of universal studios, or Capitol records.
We are a studio in Sagamihara which chooses to rock your world.
We dont put up with Bull shit.
Sorry but today I am just letting you know that I do not want any shit from you when you read this.
Of course i am getting paid. but i am not going to tell you how much. because honestly, this is a fucking retarded job.
Nobody wants to let you know the details that a recording entails.
And no one gives away secrets for free.
Okay, I am gonna finish this coke with some take out dinner from Sukiya.
Stay blissed out folks.
Peace Im out.
