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.

An Orksome Eulogy



An Orksome Eulogy

O captain, my captain ...

This morning, when my other half left for work in the pouring rain, I lifted her mood with a borrowed joke about a god, a brain and a penis. Looking for a line of light in the daily news, a little later, a ray of darkness struck me down. Synchronicity comes in many colors, it seems.

"No matter what anybody tells you,
words and ideas can change the world."
- as John Keating in Dead Poets Society,
one of his best serious performances

Naturally, in Robin Williams' case, one quote alone won't do - not by far, not by very far, indeed. Therefore, let us witness Williams' own brilliance and laugh our asses off, instead ...




A thousand thanks, Robin

You will be missed,
you won't be equalled

War No More




"Large parts of the world are faced with starvation, while others are living in abundance. The nations were promised liberation and justice, but we have witnessed and are witnessing, even now*, the sad spectacle of liberating armies firing into populations who want their independence and social equality, and supporting in those countries by force of arms, such parties and personalities as appear to be most suited to serve vested interests. Territorial questions and arguments of power, obsolete though they are, still prevail over the essential demands of common welfare and justice."
- Albert Einstein, December 1945

Listen to the full speech here and here.

* now: referring then to the beginning of the post-WWII-era,
yet still ringing true to this very day in our common present.


War no more. We merely seem to fight one another for the sake of (those in) power, we merely seem to fight our selves for the sake of greed. The only true beneficiaries appear in the guise of the arms industry and related corporations, institutions and individuals, who distribute weapons to both sides in conflict on the one hand, and on the other the banking industry and related corporations, institutions and individuals, who cash in by supporting both sides in conflict, simply gaining riches and easily growing more wealthy by charging interest on loans, provided to governments in order to pay for said distributed weapons, balanced by accumulating money collected by means of imposing taxes.** Yet in the end, all of us, none excluded, become the victims of our own malfeasance.

** Yeah! Money costs money, and lots of it, Honey!


All war equals us versus us.
War no more. Choose peace.
Lay down all arms and let us dance!


War out. Peace in.


More War No More to follow
for as long as we choose to become
divided, opposed and prodded like cattle.

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.*
