Background/Info: ‘Dehn Sora’ (real name Vincent Petitjean) is now active under the Treha Sektori moniker for more than ten years. He mainly released his work on Cyclic Law, and also on the Belgian label Consouling Sounds. He likes working together with other artists (Barst, Innerwoud, Muhd…), but of course still releases solo-material. This album is a fine selection from previously unreleased songs that have been composed for film and video, and tracks that were originally released on vinyl, compilations etc.
Content: The title track opening the album was originally released on the mini-CD + book “The Sensation Of Being One Of them” featuring Muhd. It’s pretty representative for the obscure sound universe of this French artist who next to music is also involved with visual arts. Quite progressively we’re walking through a bombastic sound universe, sometimes joined by whispering, ghost-like voices and a constant mysterious and anguished atmospheres.
+ + + : Treha Sektori is something like a spider; he patiently composed his tracks like spinning a web. Quite progressively you’ll hear new sounds and noises joining in. The percussion parts are an essential aspect, reinforcing the industrial influence. I also enjoy the whispering voices, which are reinforcing the feeling of disaster hanging over the work. It also is a perfect disc to discover with headphones. It will give you a better view about the multiple little details and noises the tracks have been composed with.
– – – : I like the global progression running through the song, which moves crescendo, but which is sometimes missing a truly climax. Let’s not forget this album is a selection of mainly previously released material, but I’m sure Treha Sektori has more potential to discover.
Conclusion: This album looks more like a collector’s item for the fans of Treha Sektori, but it also is an opportunity to discover a fascinating sound universe.
Best songs: “The Sense Of Dust And Sheer”, “Onverth Emh”, “Sahe Fernah”.
