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.

A movie for Bart




a tribute to Bart Debosscher
edited by Marco Antonio Morales Pickering

The Non-Weekly Goosebumper - 12.09.11




The Non-Weekly Goosebumper - September 5, 2011

today: Sylvian & Sakamoto - "World Citizen"

In memory of Bart Debosscher


What happened here?
A butterfly has lost its wings
The air’s too thick to breathe
And there’s something in the drinking water

The sun comes up
The sun comes up and you’re alone
Your sense of purpose come undone
The traffic tails back to the maze on 101

And the news from the sky
Is looking better for today
In every single way
But not for you

World citizen


It’s not safe
All the yellow birds are sleeping
Cos the air’s not fit for breathing
It’s not safe

Why can’t we be
Without beginning, without end
Why can’t we be

World citizen


And if I stop
And talk with you awhile
I’m overwhelmed by the scale
Of everything you feel
The lonely inner state emergency

I want to feel
Until my heart can take no more
And there’s nothing in this world I wouldn’t give

I want to break
The indifference of the days
I want a conscience that will keep me wide awake

I won’t be disappointed
I won’t be disappointed
I won’t be

I saw a face
It was a face I didn’t know
Her sadness told me everything about my own

Can’t let it be
When least expected there she is
Gone the time and space that separates us


And I’m not safe
I think I need a second skin
No, I’m not safe

World citizen


I want to travel by night
Across the steppes and over seas
I want to understand the cost
Of everything that’s lost
I want to pronounce all their names correctly

World citizen


I won’t be disappointed
I won’t be

She doesn’t laugh
We’ve gone from comedy to commerce
And she doesn’t feel the ground she walks upon

I turn away
And I’m not sleeping well at night
And while I know this isn’t right
What can you do?

Dag Bart

Dag Lieve Bart - Zoals altijd, het was mij een zwaar genoegen

In Memory Of Bart Debosscher


a ray of silence
brittly tears a cloud in half
thunder fills the sky


My dear friend Bart Debosscher was reported missing six days ago, on September 6, 2011. A thorough search was initiated; old and new media were employed; as many pairs of eyes, ears and hemispheres as possible were mobilized, in order to find him. The page you are reading now, featured his description and other details, until yesterday, September the 11th of 2011, the search was complete.

Bart is no longer missing.
Bart has gone.

Whilst going through a pile of party pictures, a particular one called out from somewhere down below. This photo of Bart depicting one of our favorite activities, is now catching ashes on my altar. It is merely a picture, but it clearly shows Bart, dancing in my heart.

The partyscene has lost one of its most dedicated technicians, many have lost a friend, some have lost their kin and one has lost her other half. My thoughts are with all of you.

Bart, my trusty right-hand man on wheels during the Unity years, faithful guardian of sound and light on many a festive occasion, but more than most of all, true friend for over a decade: here's looking at you, kerel!

let's dance

The Non-Weekly Goosebumper - 01.09.11



The Non-Weekly Goosebumper - September 1, 2011

today: Union Jack - "There Will Be No Armageddon"


There will be no Armageddon,
there will be no sudden ending

We will see our children grow
and theirs grow after them

For fifty years we awaited the future
with a mounting sense of fear

Our path to the next millennium
seemed certain to be lit
by the bright lights
of a nuclear conflagration

But now as we raise our eyes
we see that we have almost made it
to the year 2000 and beyond *


Technology is evolving
invisibly and fast

We might wish to put down
the new tools that we have made



* winked update: to the year 2013 and beyond.

The Return Of The R



The return of the R in the month
comes sneaky rather than sudden
after the record breaking wetness
that flooded the Summer of 2011

... time for snert already?

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.*
