Messenger of Dionysos · Mused by Apollo

In ancient times, Satyr was the horned and horny messenger of Eleusinian forest god Dionysos. He mesmerized the youth of nearby villages with the musical magic of his flute and made them dance till broad daylight. In our common present, the spirit of Satyr inhabits the body of a human boy. Searching for a new way to spread the vibe of the forest, Satyr switched to SL and CDJ instruments, which fit the job quite nicely.

Moon Influence

as i dwell in lunar light a little longer,
oldschool goosebumps catch up with me

my spine they climb
take me up and make me fly
rise above and float beyond

Silver Cheese in the Sky

our initial leap through that same void
has brought us to the dented surface
of a silver cheese in the night's sky

a surface, some may think or say
we have never truly touched

Embrace Letting Go

Embrace Letting Go

yesterday was a choice
tomorrow does not exist

History keeps catching up on current time, casts its light into the future, spreads a certain shade over events evolving in the present. Dark or bright doesn't truly matter; what does or do is as hard as the facts that are and stay throughout all time. Accept, forgive, let be, move on - as simple as that. Do not look back in hope to change - a waste of time that's already spent, once and only, no second chance. Onward, upward, in and through and out. Embracing now as all and ever, each choice to last a life, once made.

No receipt, no return.
No 30 days, no guarantee.

It only seems to be what can be made at any given time. As we move on and up, what it seemed before will change to now until it's done and gone when we let go. There is only here. Only now .. and wow.

Yet as we think and move towards options and futures, given time may exceed all actions taken and give rise to impatience, as we cross a finish line without reaching our goal of choice. Unfulfilled expectations linger in thought and may leave us feeling half-empty instead of half-full, anxious to feel our selves filling up with the flow of time instead of waiting for it to come dripping in, drop by drop, go then stop and go again. If we fail to experience our own world apart from those around us and think of ours as the one and only definite one, the ignoring of apparent interaction may bring disappointment into ours and a draft of incoherence will leak our energy out of the realm of shared worlds and be lost forever in all background noise, cosmic at large.

We are not alone.
We are all one .. or rather:
"We are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. There is no such thing as death, life is only a dream and we are the imagination of our selves."

Thanks Bill - We needed that.

The I Of The Storm

The I of the Storm


winds of change
stir mind at large

a mental maelstrom
circles a peaceful center

tumultuous thoughts
cast their shadows in silence

dust in the brows
of the storm

Once again, I will be drrrropping by Siberië to cream up the coffee with some musical flavor and spark the spices to create an atypical blend of mood enhancing vapors.

What to expect? Anything and nothing I could express in words. Best to follow these links to listen in key with possible tones and tunes ..

freakuently unanswered questions

? what is Satyr

! in ancient times, Satyr roamed the Eleusinian forests as the horned and horny messenger of Dionysos - the god of ritual intoxication. He mesmerized the youth of nearby villages with the musical magic of his flute, and made them dance till broad daylight.

? where is Satyr

! in our recent past, Satyr reincarnated in the concrete jungle of Amsterdam as a DJ. At age ten, he recorded his first mix, displaying his love for early hip hop and electro, and soon his tapes were in high demand. After the Second Summer Of Love, he got turned on by new dimensions of synthetic sound and ventured into the realms of acid-house, techno and trance music.

? does he still play flute

! the Panflute has become an artefact in captivity, held safe and sound in the archeological archive of the Vatican. Yet, ever since the early 1990s, up and until our common present, Satyr became increasingly skilled as a player of the SL & CDJ instruments, spinning various styles of eclectronica and edm alike, embracing a wide range of the bpm spectrum with remarkable sparkle.

Difficult to pigeonhole yet sharply focused on and specialized in ambidelic chillout, psytrance, tech trance, uptech and several kinds of steps; entertaining events for 50 to 50.000 people, by serving his spicy melange of clean cuts and dirty grooves, mixing it down and grinding it up from raw to smooth.

A few memorable events ecstasized by Satyr:
Amsterdam Dance Event (NL), Atmosphere (Berlin / D), Ballonnenfeest (NL), Burning Man (USA), Carnival (Varginha / Brazil), Club A (Sao Paulo / Brazil), Dance Valley (NL), Love & Magic (Oslo / Norway), Metsafestiwaal (Finland), Pi Club (Berlin / D), Q-Base (D), Senseblender fest (B), Universo Paralello (Bahia / Brazil), VooV Experience (D), and many more in Belgium, Brazil, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Greece, Lithuania, Norway, Portugal, Slovakia, USA & all over The Netherlands.*
