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.

War No More - IV

Enola Gay
You should have stayed
at home yesterday


OMG? No. OMD! Or rather, in my common present, short for one of my favorite curses: O My Dog!* Originally, it abbreviates for Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, the British synthpop band. Their 1980 anti-war song Enola Gay, embedded above, refers to the winged superfortress that carried the first of the only two atomic bombs ever used in recorded history of human warfare.

Summing up that fateful day, the 6ixth of August in 1945: 64 kilos of 89% enriched Uranium-235, attaining critical mass whilst in free-fall, produced a little less than 800 grams of fissile material, of which, ultimately, less than one gram converted into approximately 60 terajoule of energy, equal to 15 kilotons of TNT, according to the well-known mass-energy-equivalence equation E = mc², thereby flattening the city of Hiroshima, killing a multitude and wrapping the Earth in one of the darkest man-made shadows to date.

Gautama blinked and Albert wept.

Whether we adhere to official stories or not, may we learn lessons from our common past to never repeat certain acts or actions, here and now, then and there.

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

* To me O My Dog! serves to curse without offending any of my religious brothers and sisters, to curse without treading on the feet of the light that shines within. As for our beloved furry best friends, I laud them for settling most of their territorial disputes the old-fashioned way: by means of exquisite bladder control and dropping less-atomic bombs here and there. O My Dog - feel free to use that.

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.*
