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.

Sollemnitas Brumalis - Solstitial Ritual Festival



bacchanal and dionysiac rites - sampled from alexander's tomb


Sollemnitas Brumalis - Solstitial Ritual Festival

The Cerebralation of the Winter Solstice

Season's greetings, Sea's and Sun's breedlings! After initiating the Brunalia, we may return to Eleusis for the final feast of Brumalia and thence, the finale of the Saturnalia.

Summarizing, paraphrasing, et vice versa: the Brumalia encompass the Bacchian festivities to cerebralate the return of the Sun, in ancient Roman times. These romanized festivities continued the ancient Greek rites in honour of Kronos, Demeter and Dionysos. The ceremonies took place during the month until and including the time of the December or Southern solstice; the Winter solstice, north of the equator, the Summer solstice, south of the equator.

How these rites transformed into a commercial commemoration of Kris Kringle’s birthday, may become unraveled over a salon table at different spatiotemporal coordinates, ... per haps or maybe not. Nevertheless, whatever dissociative deification we may choose, whichever man-made metaphors we tend to mythicize, when the mind opens our eyes, we will notice that our annually recurring cerebralations simply revolve around this and other celestial events. By practising these rites, enjoying the festivities and sharing in the experience, with this solemn yet ludic method, we may obtain knowledge of our present position in and connection with, what we tend to conceive as, our surrounding environment, the local universe, Nature at large.


For an example of further demythification of some of our common metaphors, ponder along with Joseph Campbell:

Initiating The Annual Brunalia Cerebralation



Initiating The Annual Brunalia Cerebralation

1395 SH, Azar 24 - 2016 AO*, December 21 - 3182 YOLD, The Aftermath 63 - 5777 AM, Kislev 11 - 6016 AL, December 21 - ...

Moving from equinox to solstice, resurfacing after one quarter spiral ellipse around the stellar core of our solar system, by returning to and from Eleusis for the initiation of the annual solstitial cerebralation of Giordano Bruno's birth.

Bruno - astronomer, freethinker, mathematician, occultist, philosopher - who extended the Copernican heliocentric model with his ideas and theories, encompassing an infinite universe, a multipicity of worlds, the existence of extrasolar planets and the likelihood of extraterrestrial life, with an intuitive approach to logic and a rational grasp on instinct, nevertheless without proper scientific evidence; Filippo Bruno, a Dominican friar, who released his self from the weight of dogma that surpressed the freedom of his mind, who broke free from the shackles of the rigid, theocratic belief system he thitherto adhered to; Giordano Bruno, who committed several acts of heresy, ultimately embraced by the authority of the catatholic church, welcomed with their zealous love to respond to such heretic behavior with their traditional burning at the stake. Yes. The festive immolation of skepsis. 1600 AO in Bruno's case.

Thus, over a foursome centuries since**, Giordano Bruno, Il Nolano, became a symbol for the free-thinking mind and its ability to bridge the abyss between what we tend to dissociatively conceive as the spiritual and the material. A symbol, not an icon - nothing mythical, neither mystical, but merely metaphorical - to cerebralate the delightful return of the light, showing the way along the middle path between intuition and logic, between reason and instinct. And what better moment to engage the symbolic cerebralation of his birth, than the day the Sun regains its northward rise, the day the light returns? Why, indeed: the December solstice. Henceforth, in honor of Bruno's name, these annual festivities shall remain known as the Brunalia.

Carpe diem noctemque!
Let us cerebralate!

Viva Il Nolano!
Viva Il Sole!

Now, let us raise hats and heads and open our minds after we sign off with this clip from Cosmos, judged by some of us as rather historically inadequate and quite controversial, mostly due to the succinctity of the summary of Bruno's history into approximately ten minutes.



* AO or "Anno Occidentalis" instead of AD or Anno "Domini".

** It took the catatholic church 350 years to pardon Galilei, yet it still has not forgiven nor beatified Bruno. If only it understood how Bruno's martyrly status steadily grows the longer it takes to finally do so.

The Art of Peace - 十

All the principles of heaven and earth are living inside you. Life itself is the truth, and this will never change. Everything in heaven and earth breathes. Breath is the thread that ties creation together. When the myriad variations in the universal breath can be sensed, the individual techniques of the Art of Peace are born.

War No More - All Of Space To Explore



"Here's what we can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride. Take all that money we spend on weapons and defense each year and instead spend it feeding and clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would pay for many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together - both inner and outer - forever, in peace."

- Bill Hicks, It's Just A Ride
from Revelations




War No More

One of our favorite pastimes.
One of our futile pastimes.
All war equals Us vs Us.

War No More.

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.*
