Effata (2018) is a compilation of Rosa favorites over the last few years including quirky popsongs and illusive stories in sound.
released March 18, 2020
Rosa’s Effata CD is compilation of songs we made throughout the last few years working on all kinds of projects. We have chosen a few songs that we feel are close to pop music, in an idiomatic way. These are sung band compositions, the singers always tell a story with a punchline and the music is composed around it. This is a contrast to other Rosa compositions where music sometimes reaches a higher level of abstraction and where text is used both as contributor of meaning as well as a remarcable sound phenomenon. Effata means awaken in Aramaic. You might take that personal if you like.
