Appearance of the Mysterious Traveler out now!

by admin

Appearance of the Mysterious Traveler is now available on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play and streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music! The track, originally recorded for the documentary film The Rise of the Synths companion album, now sees its own release that was mastered by Carl Saff.

Produced, engineered and mixed by Steve Greene at the Battle Chamber Studio, Appearance of the Mysterious Traveler received this praise from Vehlinggo:

“Voyag3r’s seven-minute, multi-movement epic closes with a searing, multi-facted guitar solo that would make David Gilmour proud. It’s a damn shame when it fades out. I could easily have experienced another 10 minutes of this song, with each instrument taking turns with lead and support and seeing to it that I’m given the ability to transcend into something — to some celestial plane rife with revelations about the true meaning of myself, “the Self,” and perhaps even why we’re all here. I dunno. With Voyag3r, anything is possible.

Perhaps what Voyag3r leads the way on, and which the other artists help to move forward, is to give rise to a whole new meaning behind the title, “The Rise of the Synths.” It’s not merely that old and new synthesizer-driven music is becoming more popular than ever. It’s that it has the ability to allow for us to rise above and become our true selves.”

Saturday, May 4
SPACE DIVE
Tangent Gallery / Hastings Street Ballroom
715 E Milwaukee St, Detroit, Michigan 48202

Doors: 8pm – 21+

Step into a galaxy far, far away as the Tangent Gallery again becomes an immersive recreation of the Mos Eisley Cantina!

It is a lawless time.

Crime syndicates, corporations, and bandits compete for resources –
spice, booze, hyperfuel, weapons, death sticks, harlotry and medicine.

The Empire is too incompetent to reign us in and too cruel to bother.
Corruption runs rampant, from the Senate to Imperial High Command, local checkpoints and everywhere in between.

Fascist tyranny breeds opportunity in the Outer Rim, and
greed can be a powerful ally.

While the local garrison has seized our theater,
officers can be bought and stormtroopers are outnumbered.
If the time comes, they may find it harder to hold than it was to take.

This is the underbelly, the spaceport hive where all the gangsters, thugs, trash, and scoundrels of the galaxy come to gamble, find work, and drink to oblivion when they can’t. Here you can bargain for whatever you desire, and business is booming.

Just watch your step, this place can be a little rough.

EPISODE V: SMUGGLER OASIS
