Majeure "The Dresden Codex"
As one half of prog-horror instrumentalists Zombi, drummer A.E. Paterra knows his way around propulsive rhythms and analog synths, not to mention epic songwriting. Here, the Pittsburgh musician uses the name Majeure to focus on his sci-fi-obsessed cosmic-disco efforts with the 13-minute jam "The Dresden Codex." It's a stunning opener for Paterra's debut album, Timespan, as it starts slow with spacey, arpeggiated melodies and cold atmospherics that recall Tangerine Dream's Risky Business movie score before morphing into a beat-heavy, analog synth explosion rivaling just about any song written by his other band.
