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.

How To Dance



How to dance ...

"Somehow humans invented this trick
of synchronizing group activity
"

Rhythmetrically synchronized group activities will usually lead
to the dispersal of a certain collective somatic adaptation
to the atmospheric transformation by amplified sound
amongst the gathered dancing crowd
or summed up in another high-ku:

ripples in a pond
like ducks, floating up and down
after a stone's plunge


But even ducks, when learning to fly
will have to take off from the ground first (*)
so it's best to get adept to that foot stompin'
before reaching out to cloud nine and beyond.

I never took part in an active process
called "learning how to dance"
- just closed my eyes and let the music do the rest
until I ended up poking other people in the eye
so I learned to go at it blindly
only when dancing outdoors.

The one process of dancing
has verbalized itself to me
some time ago, as follows:

music plays the body
like an instrument
that takes the mind
into trance


Other than that, apart from sex, dancing seems to be
the best physical experience to share with one another,
whilst revolving'round the Sun on this blue-white-green rock.
So before I start drifting off ... let's dance!

From the Book of Changes



Ts'ui - Gathering Together

Hexagram 45 of the I'Ching, divine symbol of 2008

In the time of Gathering Together, we should make no arbitrary choice on the way. There are secret forces at work, leading together those who belong together. We must yield to this attraction; then we make no mistakes.

Ch'u - The Taming Power Of The Small

Hexagram 9 of the I'Ching, divine symbol of 2010

Only through the small means of friendly persuasion can we exert any influence. The time has not yet come for sweeping measures. however, we may be able, to a limited extent, to act as a restraining and subduing influence. To carry out our purpose we need firm determination within and gentleness and adaptability in external relations.

The Non-Weekly Goosebumper - 05.10.10



The Non-Weekly Goosebumper - October 5, 2010

today: Junkie XL feat. Saffron - "Beauty Never Fades"


See a glimpse inside the pool - it's hollow
Come to know a time when he will haunt you
Snapping at my heals made me live
Someone take me back to the angel realm, today

Each step I take the shadows grow longer
Padded foot falls in the dark I wander
Come to steal your lifeblood away
Looking for a beauty that never fades

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.*
