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…
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.
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 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
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!
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).
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).
I’m planning on putting voXager on stage sometime later this century. Actually, I’m planning on making it a real band, with frequent rehearsels, and gigs, a band coach, and lotsa-lotsa space alien groupies.
This will be a little difficult, because getting the original crew on stage on an ongoing basis is simply impossible. Unless, of course, we all would agree to start a post-apocalyptic spaceship sharing hippie community, which I’m afraid, is in nobody’s interest, except perhaps, mine 🙂
But all joking aside, I’m looking for a practice room right now, and of course, musicians from the Düsseldorf area here on Earth. Needed are
