by admin

As of late July, 2018, tape is rolling again in the Voyag3r camp! The synth/progressive/rock band is hunkered down at the Tempermill Studios in Ferndale, MI. Neve and API pre-amps thought the Harrison 32 console, on to 2″ analog tape!

This will mark Voyag3r’s 3rd full length album and like the records before, shows new directions and sonic landscapes as well as classic synth and rock elements the band is known for.

As more information comes into the light, we’ll post it here. In the meantime, here are some photos from the sessions.

ABOUT THE RISE OF THE SYNTHS
The film is a travel in time towards the roots of a worldwide grass-root music scene known as Synthwave, an irresistible blend of modern electronic composition with 80s pop culture’s nostalgia, that over the last two years has transformed from a whisper on selected internet hubs, to an ever-growing scene, expanding rapidly as we speak. Accounting millions of plays on social media, devoted fans are legion, but nobody in the mass media knows about them.

Thousands of synthwave composers around the world are living out double-lives. Away from their normal everyday life they spend another half-life behind a faceless musical avatar, creating and uploading their own renditions of 80’s-styled film scores, sharing them with the world – surging the wave. They belong to an endless army of watchers for the master’s legacy: the sound that Edgar Froese, Paul Haslinger, Giorgio Moroder and John Carpenter created in the late 70s.

A time travel into the universe of creating sounds. A love letter to human fascination and the collective memories of a universe that never existed.
