A.E. Paterra, one half of Pittsburgh’s elusive prog duo Zombi, appears to have a new solo project entitled Majeure, complete with the premiere of two tracks off his soon to be released debut Timespan on mp3 blog supersite RCRD LBL earlier today. Coming off the heels of Zombi’s first performance in two years at the Sprout Fund’s Hothouse Funraiser last week, Paterra shows off his own solo ambitions with the two headed prog monster that is “Timespan” (edit) and “Teleforce.”
Both tracks immediately remind me of Vangelis’ immortal Blade Runner score with roadrunning, cyclical synth pyrotechnics and an overall atmosphere of futuristic paranoia straight outta Phillip K. Dick. “Teleforce” is a dead ringer for the sinister end credit track from the director’s cut and builds up to an epic ten minute crescendo. The men of Zombi have the terrifying prog rock market cornered in Pittsburgh, and the release of Timespan will only further solidify their presence. Check the tracks after the jump.
