General Translator

Stoner's primary project, General Translator consists primarily of modified VGM and other found audio in the "segahaze" style. The project is treated rather enigmatically and anonymously, releases making frequent references to a goddess character "Amorotica" giving the releases a sort of ominous or mythical RPG-esque edge.
