Project List

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.

Immaculate Emancipation

Immaculate Emancipation is an anonymous alias of General Translator, using similar themes as the artist's primary name but with a much more direct and cultish narrative (revolving around the "Revered Lady", a possible alternate title for Amorotica.)

White Claudia

White Claudia is a General Translator project revolving around horror-themed VGM/segahaze mixing, utilizing a PS1-era presentation.
