Although it’s called St.Patrick’s Day- or Paddy’s Day if you’re Irish (*never* Patty’s Day American friends!!)- I personally don’t see March 17th as a day for Patrick but instead a day for all facets of Irish life to be celebrated- our incredible authors, musicians, artists; our beautiful language- ár theanga, Gaeilge, our rich culture and history- a history that despite what is so often projected, equally includes Herstory. And the treatment of Irish women and girls by our systems have quite often been brutal…
‘Carry Me Home’ is a piece I’ve written as a tribute to all those women who left and never got to come home to Ireland- those women who were expelled from Irish life both literally and metaphorically. As I wrote it, I remembered especially the women and babies in Tuam and around our country, who had their lives ripped apart by the Catholic church and the barbaric mother and baby homes. All those women who died subjugated by a cruel system. I wish them peace and I send them love. Suaimhneas síoraí dá n-anam.
A day that the state dedicates to a British man who perceived the native people, in his own words, as “barbarous” and who is credited with bringing the patriarchal system of Christianity to our country feels a great day to release a piece dedicated to and for the women of Ireland.

“Sonic Textures” is the turbulent, dissonant voice speaking for eccentric artists with different influences and backgrounds.
The fourth Various Artists Compilation presented by Syncretism gathers together several composition approaches, bringing a new paradigm of sonic textures and unexpected arrangements.
