👋 Oi, mga repapips, Brian Dys here! I love music, photography, and creative stuff like UX design and art. This is a place where I collect my thoughts and works. Apart all these, I’m Jaycelle’s better half and Bryce’s dad. 🥰

You see the “</>” icon below the image? That’s the embed action which you will see along with all (I assume) images in Getty’s website.

Reading some science articles, I chanced upon Ernst Chladni’s figures/arrays – created by putting sand over a thin metal plate and subjecting it to sound. The study of the visible sound vibrations is called Cymatics.
I have an inclination to tracing patterns and figures found in movies and old prints. It’s like a refresher in using different tools and techniques in vector manipulation, as well as preservation of the things past.
I remember my humble beginnings in Photoshop and didn’t have the files to prove it because my hard drive crashed. Well, it really did and that will be another story.
The second batch of practice files are still with me though. Not everyday did I experiment on lo-res stock photos and found pictures on the internet. So I could’ve not improved drastically from the first few years to the next.
Electronic Music Wow
During the late 90s, armed with an amateurish guitar-playing skill, I got hooked in playing with electronic music using MTV Music Generator in PlayStation 1. And a couple of years after, I upgraded to an early version of Fruity Loops.
Here’s an example of what I managed to produce in the PlayStation:
How I magically got that in MP3 format? I hooked a PC mic in front of the TV speaker while PlayStation is playing the song.
The whole point of this is that I was so excited to design my own (imaginary) album covers. I consider these designs part of my practice files – created out of pure enjoyment.
I followed this up with more “serious” compositions and with that came more “serious” album covers.
