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

Track Name: Meri Nikula - Ode To The Women Who Were Silenced
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.
Track Name: Rosa Latva - Merenneito
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
Track Name: MRSM - Black Paper (extended version)
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
