Majeure is the alter ego of A.E. Paterra, drummer for seminal sci-fi prog explorers Zombi, andTimespan is his debut release. Taking the term "full-length" quite literally, the album is made up of three epic, side-long journeys through time and space. Merging the darkness of Vangelis' Blade Runner-era Moog-driven scores and the stately minimalism of Steve Reich and Philip Glass with the relentless drive of Can and Silver Apples,Timespan delivers inspiring sci-fi disco of the highest caliber. Written, recorded and painstakingly produced by Paterra over an 18-month period, Majeure is unique in its careful collaboration of live and electronic sounds. Anchored by Paterra's sturdy, propulsive live drums, each song uses layers of analogue synthesizers to masterfully craft extended compositions that virtually stop time before speeding it up, culminating in countless moments of genuine majesty. 2xCD version includes a bonus album of remixes (originally released as TRR185LP) by Steve Moore (Zombi), Justin K. Broadrick (Jesu) and acclaimed French producer Black Strobe!
