Lyrics : Ode to the Women who were Silenced. Ode to the Women who were drowned. Ode to the Women who were burned with their wisdom. Ode to the Women who were not allowed to breathe. Ode to the Women who were misunderstood. Ode to the Women who were abused. Ode to the Women whose children were taken away from them. Ode to the Women who were sold. Ode to the Women who were doomed insane. Ode to the Women who were never allowed a voice. Ode to the Women who longed to sing but were forever Silenced. Ode to the Women Who felt the blood rushing through their veins. Ode to the Women Who kept their truth alive. Ode to the Women Who endured. Ode to the Women Who never gave up. Ode to the Women Who still talked with the trees. Ode to the Women Who never stopped listening to the freedom of the birds. Ode to the Women Who felt the caress of the wind on their skin and they knew there was grace. Ode to the Women Who were born again and again to be free at last.

Lyrics : Merenneito / Mermaid   Lepää meren kalliolla / Lazing on a rock of the sea Laulaa aaltoihin hiljaa / Singing to the waves silently Kutsuu ääni veden virtaamaan / Voice calls the water to flow Lyö myrskyksi mainingin / Hits the surge into a storm

Lyrics : Talk to me Don’t understand what’s going on Would you please look at me Talk to me Stop pretending I’m not here Staring straight, are you angry? Talk to me Your god dam stare fills up the room You’re so beautiful, like eternity Or please write it it on black papers, yes Or please write it on Black Paper Can’t you see Can’t get out of my mind Your sweet caresses on my body Can’t you see Stop blaming me, banging on me Here there's no victory Can’t you see You are my blast, my ecstasy You’re all that I can see Or please write it it on black paper, oh Please write it on black paper, yes You’re living in a memory You see me as fantasy Run away, run away, run away with me I wanna be high above, high about now Take me higher, take me higher, take me higher with you High above up the sky Talk to me We drew a story our of laughs Childhood dreams and poetry Talk to me We made a plan nothing so grand But it was ours to me Talk to me We had a chance, life is a dance And now I’ve fallen on my knees Miss you holy tonight Oh, miss you, miss you, miss you holy tonight Please write it on black paper, please write it on black paper Please write it on black paper, Please write it on black paper Talk to me Give me a sign, we’re not over, you’re such a mystery Talk to me, talk to me Talk to me Your are my charm, my firearm, You are my chain, you are my rain Talk to me Sheets are messed up Smells like coffee and the ecstasy Talk to me

about

Voices from Eris is an album full of diversity and surprises. It is also the journey and voices of 15 women artists from around the world vibrating inner strength, making a positive stand. These tracks are full of stories and emotions, sometimes dark and uncomfortable, sometimes intimate and beautiful.

Eris was discovered on January 5th 2005 to be the 10th planet in our solar system. She is named after the Greek goddess of strife and discord. On the astrological level her archetype is very interesting and portrays many of the feminist struggles.

Women are now composers, producers, electronic musicians but still undervalued and in minority. It seems that we have a duty to freedom of expression. Women have often been more implicated in collaborative processes, holistic starting points, and a closer relationship with their body and with the human voice in their creative processes. This fight has become ever so important today not only for the survival of the human race but for the building of a more sustainable civilisation which includes all living things.

Feminists struggle to “right the wrongs done in the name of patriarchal culture not only to themselves as women, but to nature and to the ideal of communal coexistence among the peoples of a potentially peaceful and beautiful Earth.” - Henry Seltzer
