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. A completely new mix and master of the long out-of-print debut album from MAJEURE. Features founding member of ZOMBI, and CONTACT. “A welcome and exhilarating breath of fresh air.” – Pitchfork // A decade ago, Zombi cofounder A.E. Paterra conceived his solo endeavor, Majeure. Released in 2009, the debut album, Timespan, took the term “full-length” quite literally – its 40-minute runtime filled by three epic, side-long journeys through time and space.
It merged the sinister soundtracks of Vangelis and John Carpenter, the stately minimalism of Cluster and Ashra, and the relentless drive of Tangerine Dream and Jean-Michel Jarre, delivering inspired sci-fi disco-prog of the highest caliber. Originally released on 2xCD and 2xLP, Timespan quickly sold out on both formats and has been out-of-print for nearly a decade since. To celebrate its forthcoming 10th anniversary, the album is given an entirely new mix and master for this special-edition reissue, Timespan Redux. Mixed from the original master files by A.E. Paterra, and remastered by James Plotkin, Timespan Redux improves upon the original in virtually every way.
