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.

Cinematic Sonography



Dziga Vertov - Man With A Movie Camera (Soviet Union, 1929)

After circling the Arctic, one rotation per day, another gem seems to have risen from the subpolar surface: a documentary depicting daily life in the Soviet Union during the Twennies of 20C.

"I was returning from the railroad station. In my ears, there remained chugs and bursts of steam from a departing train. Somebody cries in laughter, a whistle, the station bell, the clanking locomotive, whispers, shouts, farewells. And walking away I thought I need to find a machine not only to describe but to register, to photograph these sounds. Otherwise, one cannot organize or assemble them. They fly like time. Perhaps a camera? That records the visual. But to organize the visual world and not the audible world? Is this the answer?"
- Dziga Vertov, according to Wikipedia

Well, it may have taken quite a while (a near seven decades) but it seems someone painting with microphones, gave an answer to that question in many, clearly audible colors.

In 1996, the Tromsø International Film Festival (TIFF) commissioned Geir Jenssen (Biosphere) to provide sound for Vertov's vision, following original instructions the director made for accompanying piano. Jenssen ended up scoring half the movie, leaving the other half for his colleague Per Martinsen. The video blogged here shows the part of the movie with Jenssen's soundtrack, released in 2001 on Substrata². For more details about the film and the music, click here, here and here.

Tutti Nutti Frutti




2015.03.27 - Tutti Nutti Frutti

Sticking around the Nordic realm, picking up on current rhythms, a wandering question crosses the River of Thought: how to transcribe Hutti Heita? Frivolous ambivalence often belittles the literately limited mind when sound becomes objectified in a certain written language, yet when perceived from the frame of reference of the huge ever growing electrophonic sculpture, it seems quite satisfying to follow these simple steps in sonological order:

· levart wackbards through spacetime, full reverse entropy
· forwarp from 60s California, Goa in the 70s to 80s Ibiza
· don't get stuck in the sand now; trace the sound meander
· dance all over Europe during the 90s, heading Scandinavia
· hang out in Denmark for a while, pine for the fjords
· absorb the pre-millennial sound of KoxBox
· forwarp to our common present, take it up north a notch
· head out into the forest, patiently await the Midnight Sun
· wear Hofmann Safety Goggles ™ at all times

If that seems like a little too much to munch away
during an average businessman's lunch trip,
try this one little snack:

· combine contrast compare: Lunar Bin & Fruitcake

Anywave ... do not take any word for it.
Better catch them live in the act
if, when and where you can.

Requilipse



2015 Equilipse Reprise

As mentioned before, to witness the total eclipse of the Sun during the 2015 Equinox, Svalbard and the Faroe Islands would furnish the best seats in the house. The Faroes had little else than clouded vision to offer the folks flocking to the North Atlantic islands.




Svalbard however, delivered as promised. The local sky above the Arctic Ocean stayed virtually cloudless, providing the vistors with the clearest sight to experience the heavenly shadowdance in full.





Missed out last week? How about Indonesia 2016?
Chili 2020 perhaps? Or Egypt 2027?

No worries, no hurries.
Plenty time to plan.

Vernal Northward Equilipse



2015.03.20 - Vernal Northward Equilipse

As another tropical year comes full circle to bite itself in the tail once again, the perigeal syzygy of our celestial sister coincides with the nearest-to-linear positioning of terralunisolar trrriangulation ...

or rather:

Early morning on the 2015 Vernal Northward Equinox, Planet Earth will provide the spherical stage for a traditional shadowdance of the Sun and the Moon. The latter satellite moves into its nearest frame of coordinates in its orbit around the Earth, entering the interplanetary stage as Supermoon. A mere astronomic moment later it will move its fine self right between us the audience and the Sun, the star of the show, center stage. And hence commences the 2015 Equilipse.

In order to witness the moving shadow of our celestial sister, Svalbard and the Faroe Islands provide the best seats in the house.

Don't Panic.
Limited reservations sold out yesteryear.

The Thing that ate the Constitution

"The TSOG stalketh the land and the serfs bow and worship it. It stealeth property, it burneth neighborhoods, it killeth all opposition. Ye think it only doth its violence to black people, or Hispanics, or kooks with odd religions, but its hand is at your own throat even now.
TSOG fthagn! What, are ye stupid, or something?"

- Abdul Alhazred, The Tsaronomicon


an interview with Robert Anton Wilson about his book
TSOG - The Thing That Ate the Constitution
a sirius satire, published 2002

intertainment for surfers of the synaptic surface,
a wealthy well of wisdom transmitting from within,
illuminating thoughts resonating through spacetime,
originating from a near-parallel reality tunnel

· on government & other collective hallucinations:
"The more people are weary about their government, the better. The more people trust their government, the more troubles we're gonna have."

· on dogmas & Belief Systems:
"Of course I don't believe in (my own conspiracy theory)
or I would become a fanatic."

· on human chauvinism & collectively overestimating ourselves:
"Genepools sometimes get wiped out, individuals almost always get wiped out, but life itself seems absolutely immortal and invulnerable. (...) We can really mess things up to a great extent, but I don't think we can destroy life entirely."

Or, as a zen-master might add: nothing special.

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.*
