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.

Welcome Home, Space Brothers!

WAR NO MORE - IX: Welcome Home, Space Brothers!

They will be landing very soon, as soon as the Earth man himself steps up his consciousness and receives the Space Brothers in an open, receptive way, when they lay down their weaponry, when they lay down their hatreds ...
- quoted from Space Brothers by Air Liquide [ details ]

Wittily and winkfully ignoring any degree of new age blabble apparent in the introductory soundtrack to this post (no offense, excuse my pardon, maestri Jammin' Unit and Dr Walker), we do indeed welcome our space brothers.

As a matter of non-fictional fact, we welcome them home and cordially so. However, they did not travel by ufo - not from our own perspective. After revolving around the Earth for a year, yet not breaking the 1995 record by far (chapeau to Polyakov the Champ), American astronaut Scott Kelly and Russian cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko will return from the International Space Station to our shared surface under the Sun, later today*.

Apart from their safe return, let's look forward to these men arranging a rendez-vous with Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin to pull an Edgar Mitchell** on them or at least share all their stories to exemplify how Yankees, Russkies and the rest of us can learn to get along and get along just fine - just to show how ri di q lous it seems that the myopic nature of politics repeatedly causes the progress of progress to come to a screeching halt.

With towering amounts of pro- and antipaganda, mudslung piles reaching heaven high, we continually blow sand in each other's eyes. We imagine, that the excrements-in-ink we use to draw maps on pieces of paper and the excrements-in-pixels we use to draw maps on The Screen in between us, actually describe the world outside our windows, but on the contrary: nature does not recognize nations, nor does it draw lines in the sand. Yet, by doing so ourselves, we send our children to war, to sacrifice our future for the sake of greed, continually ignoring the simple fact, that we cannot survive alone - only together as one.

It appears to me it doesn't take a view of Mother Earth from the surface of the Moon to recognize the unity in our diversity, but perhaps it may help. In that case: go ESA and go humanity! In the meantime, before we gaze back at Earth from our future moonbase:
! Miru Mir - Peace to the World !

** Rest in Peace, Ed. May your message travel to the Moon and back and revolve Mother Earth as many times as it may take to deliver the punchline of your message, until it finally sinks in.

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.*
