voXager on stage

Dear post-human entities,

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

– Drummer
– Bassist
– 2 beginner guitars

One of bass/guitars needs to be able to do male rock vocals while simultaneously playing, and one needs to be a girl, doing the female vocals parts while playing.

Well, if you can see yourself with voXager on stage, hesitate not. Write an application to

Have a nice life,

Tranquility base here. The Eagle has landed.

Dear space monsters,

today, I’ll keep my big mouth shut and let pictures speak. Suffice it to say, what you see here is 1250 times awesome, or otherwise known as 1,25 kAwe…

Let’s get physical!

There’s nothin’ left to talk about, unless it’s horizontally
Let’s get physical, physical, I wanna get physical, let’s get into physical

Olivia Newton-John, Physical (1981)

On the other hand, you could take that’s inactive when swallowed, and then turned into testosterone after you make it.

Ahem, well, dear lovers of physicalities, although Olivia has a point there, this is not the kind of physical we’re talking about. Except, of course, the fact that discs are usually spun horizontally. Yes, and this leads us seamlessly to today’s breaking news: The voXager album will be released as double-feature CD in a very nice 8-page folded digipack with two disc trays, and a pretty booklet! When will this be? Well, the order to the duplication facility and the printshop will leave the voXager study before end of february. Give or take four weeks later, the shiny cellophane-wrapped goods will be delivered here, and then, on to Amazon (and possibly other shops to be announced once the dust has settled).

So much for that. And now, everybody get physical!

Out Now

Sorry, Flashplayer needed.

Showtime… Show-fscking-TIME!

Dear alienated earthlings and other vermin,

I was tempted to make one of my tasteless jokes. But now I won’t. I’m too busy creaming my pants owing to sheer excitement. So I’ll just tell you in plain, simple words: Tracking will finish by next week! Only three more sessions, and we’re done. DONE! The mixing engineer is already looking into the stuff. Planning, no, actual *work* on a space-themed music video featuring Nopileos (Cheryl) and Cho t’Nnt (me) has started. There will be a voXager release soon, as movie DVD/BluRay, as CD, on iTunes, YouTube, on this site, and elsewhere. I will go bankrupt over this, but bankruptcy has never felt that sweet before. Six years on, and we’re finally here!

Okay, I repeat: The voXager debut album “Beyond the Frontier” will be released before the year is out. With some luck even before fall.

Now you can go cream your panties as well. Have fun, dream nice things, and stay afloat.

Captain aboard!

Hej everyone! Exciting news ahead!

Finally, and at long last, we welcome our new captain aboard the spaceship voXager! Nio Velvet, vocalist and mastermind of German goth metal band Killing Smile, came on board in may during USC voXager‘s recent shore leave.

Nio Velvet

Nio will be performing the role of main character Capt. Kyle Brennan, adding his deep and melodic style to the ship’s voice crew. We’ve already recorded about half of Brennan’s appearances, and to give you and idea where this is heading, here’s an example of Nio, telling the tale of Brennan’s first contact with those lizard folks:

I guess you’ll now understand why I think this is really exciting! Stay tuned for more previews to come during the summer… or whatever they call “summer” on this dreadful excuse for a planet… :-/

So much for now; make war, not love, and have a nice one.

Lars but not least

Dear friends, family, and other non-existing entities,

please welcome another crew member aboard the ship voXager: Lars, whose weapon is the six-string, Keep on rocking in a free galaxy not so far away and in this case, of the acoustic variety. He joined us on a distant celestial body called “Örs” or “Örth” or something, and we already recorded lots of stuff. But before we could do so, we had to fix the six-stringed weapon… as you can see on the picture to the right.

Anyway, here’s a little something for your aching heart… Lars is in it, and Cheryl, and Sebas, and Sven, and that guy who still refers to himself in the pluralis majestatis on occasion… (who could that be?) some say they even had to read the baby stroller reviews in order to record this… who knows!

Lizard in the sky keeps on singing

Hey you space-faring and -fearing crowd!

Just a short one, now that january is over. We’ve got the lizard in the box! 🙂 No, seriously, Cheryl has tracked everything that is Nopileos, and here’s the first preview:

[Download voXager Clip #662]

You hear Sven on the rhythm guitar, with Sebas adding two wonderful soli; there’s Laura singing Elena, and of course, now for the first time in ages, Cheryl performing the role of Nopileos! Oh, and I’m in it, too. You can’t miss it 🙂

Yours truly,

Getting vocal about it

Dear frostbitten space pandas and pandalettes,

This is just a short heads-up on our progress in doing stuff. And by stuff I mean…. recording. Vocals! Yay!

To the right, you see Laura not performing the role of “Elena Lindisfarne Kho” (but she eventually did ;-)), and below, my humble self, croaking your most beloved antagonist, “Cho t’Nnt”. Laura singing Elena
Helge singing Cho I’ve also added a short sound bite to taser you a little. Err, I mean, to tease you… It’s a teaser, right? Here you go:

On the other side of the big pond, Cheryl started recording the vocals for our little lizard, Nopileos. I’ll post something here as soon as possible!

Until then, as usually, have fun, don’t break too many things over Kristmess, and see you on the other side.

Prepare for touchdown

Dear vacuum-breathing creatures,

I’m happy to announce that the tracking of the final vocals will commence this weekend with Cho t’Nnt, the growly-screechy main character that is performed by me. During the weekend from november 24-25, another main character will be recorded, namely Elena Kho, performed by Laura ten Hoedt. Early on in December, most secondary characters vocals will be finished. I’m very excited; this is a huge step!

To make the best of the recording situation in the new voXager study — I’ll call it floor4 for the time being, because it’s on the 4th floor right in the center of Düsseldorf — I bought a way too expensive Clearsonic isolation booth. I’ll snap a few pictures as soon as somebody is in the booth.

Anyway — have a nice weekend.
