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 Peace Of The Pi



[ listen to the full speech (t)here and (t)here ]

2016.3.14 - Pi Day Cerebralation: a Peace of the Pi

Whilst joining the global Pi Day ceremonies, gladly and quite nerdishly so, therefore happily sharing a slice with Larry[1], yet also commemorating the birthday of Einstein, I would like to seize the opportunity to repeat one of Albert's less-scientific quotes, one concerning his sturdy stance on the topic of Peace:

"I am not only a pacifist but a militant pacifist. I am willing to fight for peace. Nothing will end war unless the people themselves refuse to go to war." - Albert Einstein, January 1931[2]

Refuse to go to war.
Nothing special, really
- merely sharing the sentiment.

More words from Albert Einstein (considered to become the second president of Israel, yet he declined the offered position[3], stating he had "neither the natural ability nor the experience to deal with human beings."[4]) compiled by Michael Burch, found (t)here: www.thehypertexts.com/Einstein_Quotes

When reading these and other expressions spawned by his eloquence, one may only hope today's politicians would dare to share at least a shard of such an open-minded and open-hearted attitude toward setting aside any apparent differences, embracing all similarities and achieving peace between troubled neighbors - not just Palestinians and Israelis, but all troubled neighbors in our global village, our shared little shore under the Sun.

Peace to all who may read these words,
peace to all who may not ... ,
and all our neighbors included.

Now, let's cut that Pi!

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.*
