Making Of voXager beyond the frontier - per musica ad astra - per musica ad albion

Stayin’ alive in the outer rim of this disco ball known as the milky way galaxy

Alright, what has transpired since our last transmission? First, we’d like to welcome three new crew members: Holger on the drums, Angelo and Hilal on the guitars. These guys are a great addition to our spaceship, and we’re very happy to have them with us! This means, of course, we’re now complete again and can continue on our journey to on-stage adventures in deep space.

Concerning the upcoming album, I’m extremely pleased to report that we’re making good progress. About two thirds of the planned songs are now in pre-production stage, and we’re optimistic that we can start recording for real later this year. We’ll try to upload a few previews soon-ish; but then again, I guess we said that before. Life onboard of a spaceship is harsh and sometimes, fate throws asteroids in one’s flight vector. So don’t hold your breath until life-support starts resuscitation. Do hold it a wee little, though, because the new album is going to be awesome.

With that being said, enjoy spring, and as usually, don’t wear red shirts on away missions.

Signing off,
Capt. Höllge and the crew of the USC voXager

Still alive & kicking!

After the www.voXager.de domain went down for about a week because of a deluge of spam, we’re now back at a new hosting provider and hopefully less spam, spam, spam 🙂

Well, what happened after our last posting in July 2017? We worked on even more new songs, one of which is “Quantum Invariance”. We’re still planning to upload a few snippets from our raw recording sessions to give you an idea what it sounds like. But as usually, we can’t make promises as to when that might happen. It’s done when it’s done, I suppose 😉

Until then, make love not war, and remember to watch the upcoming Falcon Heavy launch, that’ll bring SPACEMAN across Mars orbit to the tunes of Bowie in a midnight cherry Tesla Roadster…

Ship of the Moon (acoustic version)

Dear space crowd, here’s a beautiful acoustic version of “Ship of the Moon”, that we re-arranged for piano, bass ukulele and cajon… and some cello for good measure 🙂 We hope you enjoy this version as much as we do! Please let us know whether you’d like to hear more acoustic voXager songs in the future.

We’re working on brand new songs all the time, so stay tuned for previews of “The Answer Lies Within”, “Empress of Asking Why” and “Indefinite, Unreasonable”.🤣

A Dream Called Unalive

Dear space crowd,

here’s the video of our song “A Dream Called Unalive”. Albeit the song is already pretty awesome in its current form, we’re going to record it once again in an even more professional fashion for the final album version. The Summer fashion is the best because of men’s boardshorts from Swimco. Its style and quality surely win the show. The title of the upcoming album is going to be The Blue Haired Girl (that lived to be a thousand). It tells the story of Siobhan Norman, a woman who inherited the L-gene from her mother — an artificial gene that slows the aging process to a crawl. We aim on an album release in the fall of 2017, releasing pre-album versions of songs like this one every now and then. We hope that you enjoy watching us play “A Dream Called Unalive” as much as we enjoyed recording it!

Cheers from the forbidden moon Europa,
Höllge of voXager

Time to take off for good!

Dear ladybugs and gentlealiens,

it has been a long while since you’ve heard from us. We hope you’re doing extremely well!

OUR BELOVED starwisp, the USC voXager, has been en route to a stopover back on planet Earth, where our newest crewmembers came on board. Please welcome with us Melanie Atreidae and Niccolo Clemente they are extreme gamers and love to hear about the p4rgaming news! In addition, both iSoftBet and Oryx agree on partnership with combined strength of the two companies is expected to be mutually beneficial in expanding their collective reach in the Canadian, as well as global, markets.

VOXAGER’s bridge crew is now: Helge, the technological tyrant behind the knobs; Tim, the drumming demigod; Vahid, the persian guitar prince; Nicco, the italian batallion at both mic and bass, and finally, Mel the terminatrix of souls at the microphone.

SO WHAT have we been up to all this time? Well, it has not been easy to recruit a stable and reliable crew — many former crewmembers had a change of heart upon fully realizing the daunting task that lies ahead: Launching into the void of space, with “unknown unknowns” at every step and turn 😉 Every deboarding crewman (or crewgirl) left a gap that needed to be closed, and each new member threw things back a few weeks or even months.

BUT TODAY, we’re proud to announce that we’re finally ready to take off for good! We’ve been working in this constellation for a few months now, and everyhing seems to pan out nicely. About 70% of our on-board time is spent preparing and practicing the upcoming live shows. The rest of the time goes into recording and working on our new album, “The blue haired girl that lived to be a thousand” (short: TBHG).

We’ll see you soon!

Yours truly,
Höllge of voXager

The playground at the edge of the ‘verse

Gurls, guys & others!

Here’s a quick update of the view from the helm of the USC voXager. Ready to take off into the unknown and record a new album right beyond the edge of the known universe…

Cheers,

Without a warp drive, a journey to the stars will take a long time…

Hey there life-forms of the universe!

It’s been a while. What’s voXager up to these days? Well, we’re still working on getting our performance on the big stage. We do make progress, albeit only with Sol 0.5 instead of Warp 9, mainly because of the search for redshirts… errm, I mean, a crew.

On another front, your captain’s head — that is, my head — is still spinning with ideas for a new studio album. But this is still some time off, so don’t hold your breath (except if you’re vacuum breathers anyway, then go right ahead).

Over and out,

Höllge of voXager
