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.

Hitchhiker's Guide To Hyperland


Hyperland (BBC II, MCMXC)

Had a hoopy landing after Towel Day?

Options & Answers
> Good frood! Like we knew you would.

> Not landed yet? Still soaring amidst the stars with your thumb up in the dark void? Have a hoopy one and do drop us a card from Santraginus V before you sober up for your journey home.

C|...!? Tow the What Day?
> Alright! Don't Panic. Keep your Adams on, you zarkin' frood. Just thumb back to the introduction, have a pan galactic gargle blaster (just one, on the house, free of charge, refund of obligatory rehabilitation costs not included) grab your towel and zap along the galaxy to meet us halfway to Milliways.

For those who chose answer A: would you care for some retro-futuro entertainment, whilst we impatiently await the safe return of those who chose answer B or C? Then, in that meanspacetime, let us kick back, relax, rewind to the world avant les lettres WWW and enjoy some really revolutionary stuff, like Hypertext! Guernica! Picasso! Bach! Micons! Memex! Project Xanadu! Beethoven! And a groundbreaking, interactive version of his Ninth!

... Well, revolutionary and groundbreaking, back in the day Hyperland first saw light, per haps, yes. But hold that thought, as it may just take as long as it took Hyperland to age to today for them B and C choosers to make their way around galactic center and you probably have to fill them in on all the ups and downs to come in the two-and-a-half decades ahead of us, or rather, our future history.

And speaking of Adams, ...
Thanks again, Doug.

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.*
