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 Necronomical Eulogy

HR GIGER ~ 1940 - 2014

Atomkinder (1967, left)

It seems most plausible to me, one of my favorite movies may have never made the impression on me, the way it did, without the work of Swiss artist Hans Rudolf -known to most, simply as- Giger. Equally safe it seems to say, that all the combined effort of both cast and crew, would never have made that particular movie as succesful as it has become, without the involvement of Giger in the process of its creation. Et vice versa: without Alien, the artist himself may have never made it to a level of world fame or to the doorstep of my personal attention.

As much as the two siblings, known as May Have and Would Have, could have opened the doors to those and countless other parallel universes, the movie Alien, one of the most famous scary stories told in modern times, opened the eyes of the world to embrace the art of Giger. In turn, his very art helped the scifi-horror genre and monster-movies alike leap out from the pale shadows of silliness and bathe in the rays of starlit darkness.

In the near future humanity will most likely remember Giger as the most influential surrealist artist of our common present, and honor him for imprinting the cultural zeitgeist with his art, his crafts and creatures of flesh, machine and bone in ink, metal and stone - the amazing, the bizarre, the fantastic spawn of his mind and his alone.

... and Bob's our Uncle - node 23.001: The New Inquisition

"... it was only a coincidence it was only a coincidence it was only a coincidence - the mantra of fundamentalist materialism, which works just like an ordinary Hindu mantra: it quiets anxieties, it stills the restless mind, and eventually it stops thought entirely." - RAW

Nowadays, when notified about renewing a particular piece of personally permissive paperwork, the government reminds us to "please keep your hands tidy and clean, as fingerprints will be taken." Trying hard not to feel guilty-until-proven-innocent, one cannot quite escape the urge to look in and cry out, in disbelief rather than despair:
"What the flying fungus? Goddess please, bear with me!"

It started off with the incorporation of an rfid-tracking-device, which became combined with facial and iris recognition. Next up: DNA-samples at work? A short stop at the Piss Police to drop a sample before shopping? Beyond a distant horizon, Kafka and Orwell pull up their frowns in astonishment and laugh out loud in sardonic ridicule.

To repeat another tranquilizing mantra: if you've got nothing to hide, you've got nothing to worry about. Right. Carry on, move along, nothing to see here. At such moments it seems best to keep it [+] and share a good laugh about it with Robert Anton Wilson, our Uncle Bob.

"The world is much stranger than most people realize." - RAW

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.*
