- Brainstorm by Steve Moore And Majeure
9/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 03 February 2012
OH! Steve Moore / Majeure (a.k.a A.E.Paterra) split LP on Temporary Residence? Yes please sir. As you may know these two characters are the also known collectively as Zombi - a group who extend upon the works of Horror/Sci-Fi soundtrack pioneers such as John Carpenter, Vangelis and Goblin to name but a few. Steve's work is always a pleasure to hear, his composition skills are truly outstanding and his synth work encompasses the age of 70's/80's film score work so effortlessly that he seems unable to produce a bad song. He's basically succeeding where everyone else has failed. His side of Brainstorm is a fantastical as any of his previous works. He begins with an arpeggio heavy driving number in a similar style to the tracks that make up last years 'Escape Velocity' Zombi LP before veering of into more reflective, purist soundtrack territory - very much on a Vangelis 'Blade Runner' tip here with dramatic synths, light arpeggios and super spooky chord progressions dominating the final three tracks. Why this guy isn't scoring films already is beyond me...he must be at least trying for the work? Majeure's 'Timespan' LP proved that A.E Paterra is more than just a awesome-o rock drummer with synth skills rivalling his fellow bandmate. Here he delivers one long piece in three parts. It begins on an Ambient tip with found sounds used to great effect, building tension within the music that's eventually broken by a s-weet power synth melody in the vein of 80's Tangerine Dream. The arpeggio here is well Steve Reich in it's prickliness. In the final part Paterra gets the big guns out with the kit making it's first appearance of the day. From here I'm in familiar Zombi territory with electro influenced rock drums trading off with arpeggio bassline's and cosmic synth melodies. Majestic stuff. Both sides are triple awesome. A must album of the week. Now lads...about those 'Escape Velocity' LP's...
