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.

Day Out Of Time ☉ 2017

Blue Spectral Storm

Thirteen months of twenty-eight days add up to 13 x 28 = 364 days in a year. This leaves out one day to complete the year as a 365 day cycle, and that one day exists as the Leap Day in traditional Mayan astronomy: the Day Out Of Time - today, July 25.



Whether we choose to embrace the Galactic Dreamspell calendar or consult the traditional Mayan Tzolk'in, on the Day Out Of Time we can find each other encompassing a center point in our midst:
the Maya did not manufacture a key to unlock some sort of doomsday device; they gained access to ingredients of a natural calendar, in full phase with terrestrial, lunar, solar, galactic and cosmic rhythms, unlike that good ol' Gregorian timepiece that keeps on keeping us in check chack check chack check chack ...

Time has come to dance instead of march
- dance to the beat of the Sun.

Kill The Buddha





2017.06.11 - Nam mô A di đà Phật

If you meet the Buddha
on the road

kill him

before
he sets
himself
on fire




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

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.

Towels Away!





2017.05.25 - Towels Away!

Anyone of you zarkin' froods hiking around the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the Western spiral arm of our Milky Way galaxy care to have their brains smashed out by a slice of lemon wrapped around a large gold brick?

Seems like a nice sidereal day for it.

Bottoms up! Towels away!

Happy Towel Day!

Après-Bicyclette



2017, April 19+7, Après-Bicyclette

Une semaine après notre Grand Départ annuel ...

One week after crossing the starting line of our annual Bicycle Day cerebralations, we make our aumward return. At the finish, holding out a black and white checkered blotter flag, Saint Albert Uncle Hofmann welcomes us. Our outward spiraling wheels slowly stop spinning as we come down to a halt next to him, flagging down our bikes.
After a wide and warm embrace, he holds us softly by the shoulders, looks us in the eye and smiles, then turns to our side, joins us as our gaze floats out over the Earth's plane stretching out in front of us, pauses to breathe, then speaking sincere words of swissdom ...

"Alienation from nature and the loss of the experience of being part of the living creation is the greatest tragedy of our materialistic era. It is the causative reason for ecological devastation and climate change.

Therefore I attribute absolute highest importance to consciousness change. I regard psychedelics as catalyzers for this. They are tools which are guiding our perception toward other deeper areas of our human existence, so that we again become aware of our spiritual essence. Psychedelic experiences in a safe setting can help our consciousness open up to this sensation of connection and of being one with nature.

LSD and related substances are not drugs in the usual sense, but are part of the sacred substances, which have been used for thousand of years in ritual settings. The classic psychedelics like LSD, Psilocybin and Mescaline are characterized by the fact that they are neither toxic nor addictive. It is my great concern to separate psychedelics from the ongoing debates about drugs, and to highlight the tremendous potential inherent to these substances for self-awareness, as an adjunct in therapy, and for fundamental research into the human mind.

It is my wish that a modern Eleusis will emerge, in which seeking humans can learn to have transcendent experiences with sacred substances in a safe setting. I am convinced that these soul-opening, mind-revealing substances will find their appropriate place in our society and our culture."

Albert Hofmann
2007, April 19

April 19 - Bicycle Day



2017, April 19 - Bicycle Day

1943, April 19 - Not completely content with the result of their first encounter, three days earlier, as her child had not spoken loud and clear enough to become fully and unequivocally understood by the doctor and therefore did not receive the essential attention it deserved, Mother of Rye arranged for a second meeting, three days later.

The whispering echo of her voice presented Dr Hofmann with the deliberated decision to self-prescribe a small dose of LSD, in order to enable the two to make closer acquaintance. Easily convinced by the vivid memory of his recent pleasance, the scientist reasoned that by consciously repeating the experiment, it should become establissed with certainty whether or not the previous serendipitous encounter between his research chemical and his self had indeed been accidental.

The self-administered "cautious dosis" -250 micrograms, in retrofact- proved not as small as Hofmann had expected. Not quite, not by far. Little did he foresee about the friendly onslaught of chaos at his very fingertips, screaming in eager silence. Yet as soon as he felt inebriated by the initial effects, he laid down his work and asked his assistant to accompany him on his bikeride home, as it seemed unsafe to him to head out on the road by himself.

Moments later, looking over his shoulder whilst biking, he could see Mother of Rye, fading into the distance, waving with a wide smile and a satisfied sigh, as she knew she had accomplished her Great Work.

The trip that followed wrote history and its effects resonate throughout spacetime, far beyond here and now. This date, April 19, has become known around the globe as Bicycle Day - the annual cerebralation* of Albert Hofmann's Serendipity.

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.*
