Content: We know Treha Sektori as a talented dark-ambient music project, but Dehn Sora also is a graphic designer. This EP is part of the book-release “The Sensation Of Being One Of Them”.
The visual- and main part of the book features the illustrated work of Dehn Sora, which was realized for exhibitions and the commissioned work for different music labels (Cyclic Law being one on the list). I got the opportunity to see a few illustrations from the book, which clearly reveals the dark and sometimes tormented, but still artistic universe of this French artist.
The CD was composed for the book and serves as a strong sonic support. It reveals a composition of 25 minutes featuring the Swiss guest artist Sam Vaney (Muhd) plus guest vocalist Kristoffer Rygg (Ulver).
“The Sense Of Dust And Sheer” moves in between classical dark-ambient influences and industrial rhythms. From start on you get lost into a cold and frightening universe animated by spooky, whispering vocals. The work has been clearly composed to accompany a visual work. The illustrations of Dehn Sora totally reflect the haunting sound atmospheres. Some passages are a little bit into a kind of imaginary, obscure rite. The dense sound waves create a suffocating experience.
This composition clearly sounds like having been made as a totally accomplished piece of music. Both, the visual- and music part of the work are complementary and like reinforcing each other. The music moves towards this enigmatic point where a dream turns into a real nightmarish experience from, which you rapidly get the impression there’s no real way back.
Conclusion: Treha Sektori confirms its great writing skills, which were already revealed on previous albums. I can imagine this kind of release must be a kind of consecration for this artist.
Best songs: “The Sense Of Dust And Sheer”.
