Interviews About The Albums: WHAT ALEPH SAID - Aulasy (2024)

In this new interview, we sat down with the Swiss Post-Rock band WHAT ALEPH SAID to ask questions about their album, "Aulasy".

1. What can you say about the new album "Aulasy"?

We feel that this album is the consolidation of a composing style we all feel at home, one that we've been refining since the inception of the band. We've put a lot of work into it and we are very proud of the end result.

2. What is the meaning of the album name?

Aulasy is a made-up word picked up directly from the "Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows", a list of words someone put together that express feelings and thoughts the English language cannot just put in one word. It means "the sadness that there's no way to convey a powerful memory to people who weren't there at the time"

3. Which one is the composer in "Aulasy"?

The four of us are! Our songs develop and grow by adding small pieces together and everyone takes part in this. We usually start from either a jam session, where we select ideas we liked, or someone brings a riff or an idea he developed at home. Then it is a process of trial and error, see what makes sense and what doesn't, and of course, a lot of hours sanding off the rough edges

4. If you had to pick one song, which one would you pick?

I'd choose Taklamakan. It's one of the most fun to play songs and its riffs hit like a truck on stage!

5. Is there a special message in "Aulasy"? If there is what is it?

We tried to reflect the meaning of "Aulasy". There is a strong mix of feelings that come with this word: Joy, as you're conveying a powerful memory to someone else, and on the other hand, sadness, as this person will never feel what you felt at that time no matter what

6. Are there some lyrics that you'd love to share?

All our songs are instrumental, so there aren't any 🙂

7. Which inspirations have been important for this album? Like musically or friends, family, someone you'd love to thank especially?

One of the tracks, 'Oreida', is inspired by an underrated Portuguese band named Juseph. Otherwise, we are much influenced by bands such as If These Trees Could Talk and Isis

8. Something to add?

Check out our new video clips made with AI! We tried it to give a visual shape to two of our songs, Astral and Taklamakan. You can find them on YouTube
