The album VOX [Voice; Sound; Call; Outcry] is part of the project « circe :the black cut: » and it is compiled by its founder and composer, Anna Stereopoulou. Being the second CIRCE Family Album (after the release of “Vuelo Libre” in December 2014), “VOX” consists of 28 tracks composed by the participants of CIRCE The Black Cut, as well as by the artists who responded to “The Women of the Great River” call-out /playlist of Claudia Wegener‘s RADIO Continental Drift; guest project of the CIRCE The Black Cut ~ 2nd Presentation (2015).
The 2nd phase of the project (2015), offers “Bees” to all participants, as the new Theme connecting all existing sources of inspiration. Through the present compilation we are invited to join the outward motion which is mostly achieved by the exploration, the acceptance and the unity of opposites. The theme of “Bees” suggests awareness about these, essential to the ecosystem, flying insects, and the numerous threats they are exposed to (habitat loss, pesticides, etc.), as well as a paradigm to learn from their way of life, work and communication, in order to become more open and express our Voice, louder and wider, by exiting any kind of cell, which we are forced -by others or by our own selves- to live in.
Thus, the transition from the compositions of the CIRCE The Black Cut participants, to the remixes of the artists responding to “The Women of the Great River” playlist, represents the voyage of an out-cry, wrestling to travel, beginning from our roots and our most inner places, through various bee voices helping us to kill our egos, by crossing the “river” or any kind of barrier and expose our feelings free to light.
The album is available on Seven Moons (which is supporting the project since its launch, March 2014) as Digital Format and Free Downloading.

VOX_-_CIRCE_AlbumCover_2015“As we pray at the temple of the bee goddess, all the flowers come alive.
As we bow before the bee goddess all the garden breathes as one
As I dance at the temple of the bee goddess I am alive like never before.
Oh Golden Mother carry me now across the river between worlds
Unstoppable wisdom — unstoppable truth — unstoppable beauty
There is no them, there is only us…”
