Recording in a top class studio in Tokyo.

Recently my band has been making and writing new songs. And our band leader booked a day at a top end studio in Tokyo. For me it was a new experience. They had Neve, SSL,  & Tube tech and a wealth of other outboard gear.

A couple famous Japanese artists have been to this same studio. And I would say they had a nice sound. Of course, they use Protools.

I still use Sonar and Auto tune for fixing vocals.

I could upgrade to another newer version of Sonar. But honestly I`d rather get better physical gear, other than just cheao gimmicks in Software.

Anyways, I had a fun time in the studio. We recorded Vocals and guitars for Slingshotmillion2.

I am also still in the process of remixing Chris Larke`s “Christmas pie”. As well as working for another DJ in Nagoya. They are still in the process of listening to what I worked on.

Other than that, that is what is happening on the musical front for me.

Stay blissed out peeps.

And face the music!!

Music video shoot “Lalaland” by Slingshotmillion2

Today we went out to Yokohama to shoot a PV for one of our songs, called “Lalaland”.

We took it close to world porters, with a camera man.

We got a few good angles and shots.

We took pictures and danced around alot.

We had lots of fun and here is the picture of all who helped out with the making of the music video.

The song is called “Lalaland” and will soon be available for listening & viewing on Youtube.

Yesterday`s session with Slingshotmilion2`s main Female Vocalist.

Yesterday we had some fun in the studio.

We recorded some vocals, and practiced some songs (That we are going to sing on the streets soon) before recording.

It went real well. In fact Im so happy that my sister helped me out with the renewal of this website, that I think I`ll go make mysef a cup of Joe to celebrate.

Yes we will still have this website up, even in the midst of chaos in my life, which has to do with my band. Which takes up alot of time and money.

Like for instance, I have to go practice with my band all the way out in Tokyo. A place I really don`t like.

But have to do it,
Just because I am the lead guitarist, and we will be performing a sole one band live on the 9th of next month.

Other than that, my mic is giving up the ghost. It sputters and makes random noises. I know thats not so good for my studio to blog about that, but, it still works, so I don`t care.

Stillbliss style in Tokyo/Shimokitazawa

Today we rocked Tokyo.
We played an hour long show.

With Slingshotmillion2, Pablo and other bands from the indie scene in Japan. It was held at Live house Rokudemonaiyoru.

It`s a small venue on the third floor of a building at Shimokitazawa station.

Yes, I sometimes feel as if I`m talking to no-one. But I know that anything done with diligence will be rewarded.

We will be paying our hosting site Godaddy the annual fee this month, to keep this site going.

We hope you like the content. And me: your host Jesse Sou Pritchard, will be faithfully keeping you updated with what`s bliss in Japan, Basically Tokyo, my band and what happens at our studios.

So, there you have it. My band performed a live show. And tommorrow I`m a free man! Happy, and free. At least for a day!

Ok!

Peace out!

I need to take a shower and get some Z`s.

Slingshotmillion2 Recording session. And some personal business, blog.

Today we recorded, drums, bass, Vocals, and guitar.

All for the purpose of `I dont know why we are doing this`  kinda thing.

Tommorow I am a busy man. I need to go into town to buy contacts for my bands show that`s coming up soon, so I can wear my Raybans. LOL!  But first I need to get my eyes checked.

And I need to get my feet checked for parasites that are growing on them. I got them checked about two weeks ago, but the doctor said to come back after two weeks. And it has been two weeks.

So after that I need to buy two sets of guitar strings. One for the guitar we always use in the studio, and one that will be used for street live`s. to get people to come to our shows.

And then I need to mix two songs from the band Slingshotmillion2.
One song is already mixed basically. I just need to mix basically one more.

Anyways, thats your blissful news update.

Sorry if the parasites grossed you out. I`m sure you will understand my situation, once you turn thirty or so.

Anyways. I need to sleep. Because: Early to bed, early to rise, makes you healthy, wealthy, &, wise!

Peace out!!
