What is Voyagers?
Voyagers is a space rock opera in development from songwriter Cameron Hood. Think: Pink Floyd’s The Wall in space. A sung- through rock opera, Voyagers utilizes rock music storytelling and stunning visuals to invite audiences to experience the aches, dreams, and fears of two ambitious musicians who make a record and set out on tour, while exploring the mind-bending history, science, and sounds of NASA’s two Voyager space probes—a pair of spacecraft launched in 1977 on a Grand Tour of the outer planets, outfitted with a Golden Record of life on Earth to carry beyond the solar system into interstellar space.
What's the story?
A starry-eyed, ambitious songwriter longs to ascend the anonymous rat race of life on earth by creating a gold record and touring among the stars. After meeting a lovely, level-headed companion who reveals that the planets have aligned for them to make an album and undertake a grand tour, the pair launch into dizzying new heights. But when his ever-expanding ambition threatens both the tour and their relationship, he must reckon with his true place in the cosmos by searching out the most distant, unknown object in the universe—his own soul.
