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.

Kill The Buddha

2017.06.11 - Nam mô A di đà Phật

If you meet the Buddha
on the road

kill him

he sets
on fire

Nam mô A di đà Phật
- Bồ Tát Thích Quảng Đức
1963, June 11

as recited during
his self-immolation

Nam mô A di đà Phật

in Vietnamese,
as in Japanese:

Namu Amida Butsu

In reverence to Amida Buddha

"If you meet the Buddha,
kill the Buddha."

Linji Yixuan / Rinzai Gigen
- founder of the Linji school,
one of five Houses of Chinese Chan Buddhism,
extended to Japanese Zen Buddhism as the Rinzai school

Kill the Buddha

- perhaps one of the more (in)famous koans,
sprouted in fertile Oriental tradition,
widely misunderstood in Occidental circles.

Nothing special, really.

Merely a reminder
to keep paying attention,
to never really believe anything;
a useful tool to exercise one's state of mind,
to silence the analytical and favour the intuitive,
to puzzle those who claim to understand Zen

... or so it may seem.

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.*
