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.

Day Out Of Time - July 25, 2011 - Red Overtone Skywalker

Red SkywalkerWhether you may or not adhere to the new age interpretations of Mayan astrology, the astronomical knowledge common to the Maya was immense. Mind you and me, they didn't have the chance to take it easy and lean on pocket calculators or to give their own brain a complete rest and use a Cray supercomputer instead.

Their calendar is in full sync with the natural frequencies of the movement of celestial bodies like the Sun, the Moon and the Earth, instead of being partly paired with unnatural periods, induced by morals and dogma of those in power. For instance: the Maya observed that in the time the Earth revolves around the Sun, the Moon takes thirteen complete right-turns of twenty-eight days around the Earth.

Thirteen moons or months of twenty-eight days adds up to 13 x 28 = 364. This leaves out one day to make the year a complete 365 day cycle, and that one day would be the Leap Day for the Maya - the Day Out Of Time, which is today, July 25.

2012 on the horizon or not, it's about time for humans to collectively drop the unnatural calendar we have been subjected to, and fully phase in to the universal rhythm, once again.

... time to dance as well.

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.*
