A fun time was had, at Rokudemonai yoru.

We had a blast with all the people from Mujakids playground. Or so it`s called.

We had a couple bands perform before our band. We were the main band at the end of the event.

One person mentioned that he became a real drunkard after meeting us. Hey buddy we hope you take it all in good intentions.

Anyways that happened on the 14th of this month.

I just recently came back from a wedding gig in Nagano Prefecture. Matsumoto to be exact. Now I finished doing all of the home chores, and am just blogging here to let you know all things bliss.

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.

The reason for our success. Spelled out in words.

Well, Honestly, I don`t know how and where the years went running this studio, but it has already been over a decade of recording. We have recorded alot! It seems that recording just seems to go on and on! There`s no end to it.

Yes! I have been slacking off on posts, learned alot about what TOO post, and what NOT to post, courtesy of sweet clients.

We have been in Kofu, Tokyo, and finally settled down in the countryside of Sagamihara. Which is actually a blessing more than a curse.

Living in the outskirts of Tokyo, is a great way to capture just what THE ARTIST`s hope to catch, the Magic, which is what we always strive to gather in our quest for better and more great music for YOU the listener to listen to.

Yes. We listen to POP music too! Some of our favorites being; Keane, Lady Antebellum, Ed Sheeran, Coldplay, just to name a few. And of course the artists who have come through our studios doors.

They are all important. This site wouldn`t be surviving if it hadnt been for my dear sister, who will be paying for the website hosting and what not in the future. So no worries there.

Anyways, the magic really comes from the artists who come. I just add what I can to the mix, and the rest is History.

Some people might wonder if what Im ding is fun. Well, it hasnt always been fun and games. As this artform like any artform, takes time to hone and adapt to.

Also recently playing in a band, adds to the mystery of how everything comes together when you try your best, and be positive about everything, and count on your partner to support you.

If there is anything I learned from being in the music business, is that you cannot rush things. You need to take things, a step at a time, or you might miss something important.

Anyways I`ll leave you with these thoughts, and a favorite wallpaper for this post.

Anyways, stay blissed out. And Peace out my good friends!

Stillbliss practice and future artists.

So, according to my memories, I am Stillbliss. I was conceived in a studio, I enrolled in music at high school, I have a music certificate. And I know music theory. And according to my latest memories, I am still in a pop band.

Slingshotmillion2.

That`s the bands name.

We will be holding our own private show at Shibuya`s live house guilty on the 9th of September. And we have been practicing alot for it.

It seems like we will have a good time, and hopefully everyone who comes will too!

Also Alika Arroyo from Hawaii, will be coming over in the near future to record with us.

Also a band from Africa wants to come over to our studios to record. But of course they have to get to Japan to do that.

Anyways, other than blissful news, I have been listening alot to Lady antebellum. Alot of their stuff s really good. They sound like they only drink whiskey. LOL!

But I mean who doesn`t drink whiskey and write songs?

No songwriter never ever did not drink something before writing songs.

Anyways, enjoy your day or afternoon or night, all you beautiful people!

And come back for more news!!

Cheerio…!

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.
