How would you, in a few words, describe your new album More Content?

 

First and foremost More Content is a continuation of what I started during the 2020 pandemic when I was working on my self-titled album David Rosen. About half of these songs were started at the same time while locked down, and these continue my attempt to grow as an artist and do things I could never do musically on past albums, playing with new musical ideas, more advanced software, and more complex, more dynamic methods of making music. It's also for the most part my most upbeat album so far.

 

What inspired you to record and release More Content in the first place?

 

I'm always inspired to make music. As a matter of fact while working on More Content I've been concurrently working on my next two albums at the same time and kind of pre-planning another. So there's never really a starting point with me. I'm just constantly making... more content. Part of the reason I decided to name the album that (even though I absolutely hate the word "content" and the title is definitely very tongue in cheek).

 

Do talk about some of your stylistic influences on More Content!

 

My biggest influences are always The Cure, Depeche Mode and Nine Inch Nails, and those 3 still fit with this album. I feel like as I continue scoring films, I'm letting more and more film scores creep into my influences as well, everything from more modern electronic scores to classics. Like I said I was also very interested in making this my most upbeat album and other than one ambient track (Ascending) and a couple of more midtempo pieces, the majority of this album is much more upbeat than usual for me.

 

How did you go about composing the tracks for the album?

 

I use Studio One as my DAW and a whole host of synth and sample based software including the Native Instruments suite and lots of expansions, as well as Omnisphere, Keyscape and Nexus 2. While my main setup hasn't changed much in the last few albums, I find myself digging in deeper to take advantage of more and more of what all of this stuff can do. Even with 100s of songs released, I've barely scratched the surface (not that that stops me from buying more software because I can't help myself).

 

What can you tell us about your recording sessions for More Content?

 

Nowadays I spend more time on my podcasts (Piecing It Together and Awesome Movie Year) than I do on music. It's just been a real balance for me between those, the albums, being hired to compose music for films and other podcasts and other kinds of projects, as well as everything else in life. So sessions are a little more erratic. I was also scoring three feature films in the time I was working on More Content. The films Move Me No Mountain, Jacqueline, and Inexistent, which you'll hopefully be able to see them all soon. But jumping back and forth between them, the album, the songs I made that didn't fit on this album but will be on a future album. There's just been a lot and it's been constant creativity.

 

The $64-question of course, where has More Content been released?

 

The limited edition CD is available on Bandcamp at https://davidrosen.bandcamp.com, and of course the album is also on streaming on Spotify, Apple Music and everywhere else. You can find links to all the places to check out my music on my website at https://www.bydavidrosen.com

 

Anything you can tell us about audience and critical reception of your album?

 

Funny enough, as podcasting has taken over my time, I've only gotten more listeners from the podcast world. Promoting my music to musicians has always felt kind of pointless. So I'm getting a lot more listeners nowadays who actually give feedback, and the favorite songs from More Content have been extremely varied. The title track More has gotten a lot of attention as well as the tracks Trapped in the Beat and the first single Antiviral.

 

Any future projects you'd like to share?

 

First up will be a couple more music videos from More Content. I've got one already done for Blacklight that I'll be releasing early in 2023. Then will be an animated video for Ascending. There's also one in the works for Warrior, and maybe I'll get to do one or two more. Then I've got another album I've already announced called And Other Unexplained Phenomena on the way which will be an album that leans very heavily into my dark side. I've always described my music as dark, and there's always a lot of dark, mysterious, melancholy stuff throughout my albums, but this one will be the heaviest I've ever done and never let up from beginning to end. It's over half way done, but it MIGHT not be my next album. Something else might creep its way in first, but we'll see. It's definitely on the way.

Anything else you're dying to mention and I have merely forgotten to ask?

 

The album cover for More Content is actually me standing in front of a video wall made up of 64 (8x8) films that I've worked on music for. Either features, shorts, music videos, promotional videos, ads, commercials, TV. It's a lot of... content.

 

Thanks for the interview!
