"The Spring of Dreams" by Jaya Prime
Pt 13 of 36 in the "Spectral Recursion" series

"Centaur, with arrows to shoot the stars,
searches the archive of signs and storms.
The Leaf of Autumn is lost and far.
Winter has melted and Spring has warmed."

"IO Vapoura" by Jaya Prime
Pt 12 of 36 in the "Spectral Recursion" series

"A blade of grass is a commonplace on Earth; it would be a miracle on Mars." ~Carl Sagan

Notes: This is my original album art for "IO Vapoura [Variations]" (2010) -- world, downtempo, transnational, electronic music. The flying city of Vapoura is coming through my signature fractal -- a bent hyperbolic fractal that appears in more than 60% of my designs. I have a similar signature in my music, where I sign one song on every album with a glitched synth-sequence. Not only was "Vapoura" one of my favorite albums to create, but it has remained my favorite to listen to over the years. My song "Gongo Dodan" has been remixed more times than I can count, yet retains the same ineffable and striking "otherness" that gives it its namesake. "Gongo dodan", translated from Japanese, means: "Words fail."

Words. Fail.

"Optica Dentata" by Jaya Prime
No.11 of 36 in the "Spectral Recursion" series

"A mind is a simulation that simulates itself." ~Erol Ozan

Facts: The human eye is an intricate organ composed of more than 2-million separate parts, with more than six times as many unique identifiers as a fingerprint. As our most complex sensor, four out of every five memories we have are visual, a number in parallel with our visual learning-rate. Without our eyes, cats falling out of boxes would no longer be the primary reason for humans to tune into the Internet for hours on end… although the thud would still cause a few rounds of chuckles.

Note: As featured by the one and only Surreal42. Although I already planned this fractal for release this week, it really lines up beautifully with the new trailer for "Ghost in the Shell" -- I could not believe what I was seeing when I saw the preview. It looks like they are not holding back. If that is the case, then it could be up there with "The Matrix" and "Blade Runner" for live action cyberpunk movies, and I cannot stop myself from getting my expectations up.

"The Stargazers" by Jaya Prime
Pt 10 of 36 in the "Spectral Recursion" series

Lonely is he (who has lost his Home)
for that harbor where his heart has moor'd.
But free is he (who the World has known)
who rests his hopes upon any shore."
~San Jaya Prime, The Wayfarer's Songs

Facts: AKA, "The Grand Pigeon Empire" -- Any and all empires are territorially limited based on three contingents: transportation (roads), strength (armies, enforcement), and communication. The great Persian Empire of antiquity (circa 400bce) had the might, and they built the roads, but the empire exploded as far as Egypt in the West and India in the East with one single discovery -- the carrier pigeon. It was the first long-distance communication network of antiquity. The once respectably-sized Persia grew to a massive empire that held the center of the known world for a thousand years.

Nowadays, even the poorest of humans carries around a pocket-pigeon in the form of a miniature computer, networking with satellites and relays across the planet to create a seamless illusion of connectedness. There was a brief period where the pigeons held a "we will riot" campaign in protest of their early retirement, but a few handfuls of birdseed quickly quelled the aforementioned revolution.

“Vapoura Unversioned” by Jaya Prime
No.9 of 36 in the “Spectral Recursion” series

“There is only one question every life-bearing planet needs answer: Rise… or fall?” ~San Jaya Prime

Thoughts: My tenth and final album was “IO Vapoura: Unversioned & Unfinished” (2015). When I started making music, people told me it would never work. A tumor from when I was six had killed most the hearing in my left ear. I learned tricks that helped me along the way, like setting pennies atop speakers to SEE the bass in a song (thank you PK!). I learned to make certain sounds by using my eyes. It was not enough.

In 2012, the many years of stress that my left ear put on my right ear came to a head. My right ear started to fail. It’s a hard thing to say, and took me almost a year to even accept. Until science is far enough to completely rebuild my inner ears, I’ve now retired from music production and I’ve turned my artistic expression towards writing, design, and illustration. This design was the cover for that final album, an appropriately anime cover for a rather somber anime-esque electronic album. I’ve got to send mad shout outs to Zitan, K Sabroso, Ghostface Geisha, BMFD, and the fallen Mushuto (RIP) — all great musicians who taught me so much every step of the way.

"A Glimmer in the Infinite" by Jaya Prime
No.8 of 36 in the "Spectral Recursion" series

Story: One man defended the city of Syracuse against the entirety of the Roman army. Soldiers only mentioned his name in whispers, as his name could quickly spread fear throughout the whole encampment. The Romans seiged the city for six years, and this one man had built traps, tricks, catapults, and had even created waves in the ocean to sink ships... going so far as to set ships ablaze using mirrors. This mathematician was one of the world's greatest magicians, and he was completely obsessed with circles.

His name was Archimedes.

He died to a soldier on the beaches of Syracuse; a soldier that Caesar would later execute for having killed the greatest mind of their time. Archimedes was discovered dead on the sand. Drawn on the sand around him was a series of circles that, only thousands of years later, would we recognize as the earliest form of calculus.

"A Dream of Winter" by Jaya Prime
No.7 of 36 in the "Spectral Recursion" series

"Dark falls the seasons on turning wheel.
Cold takes the shadows nearest window sills.
Take warmth's token and make of it bed,
where Bone Frost’s fingers pass o'erhead"
~San Jaya Prime, The Wayfarer's Songs

Incept: I pulled the original hyperbolic fractal from the "StarSeed" poster that many already know from my music, then ran it through a few deep dream filters before adding stars, snowflakes, and lens flare.

"In the Eye of Time" by Jaya Prime
No.6 of 36 in the "Spectral Recursion" series

"And in our darkest hour, before my final rhyme, she will come back home to Wonderland and turn back the hands of Time." ~The Cheshire Cat

Notes: I was hitting the gallery of Danny Darko when I saw his conceptual edit that fused the world of "Alice in Wonderland" with that of "Donny Darko"... with Frank, the time-traveling rabbit, in place of the famed White Rabbit. It's brilliant! And led to quite the conversation. It's a concept that has been altering my perception of not one, but two previously separate worlds. There's always time for tea ;}

“Deep Space Dreamer” by Jaya Prime
№5 of 36 in the “Spectral Recursion” series

“Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.” ~Carl Sagan
Facts: Of the 564 currently confirmed exoplanets, only thirty-two register as habitable. Eleven of these are strikingly similar to our own Terra: size, shape, and at a distance from their star of origin to keep them from freezing and from burning up. Whether or not any of these are already inhabited remains to question. Want to take a ride?

“Sombranoche” by Jaya Prime

No.4 of 36 in the “Spectral Recursion” series

“O, threats of Hell and hopes of Paradise.
One thing at least is certain: THIS LIFE FLIES!
One things is certain and the rest is lies:
The Flower that has bloom’d for-ever dies.”
~Edward Fitzgerald, Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam

Facts: The star-shaped, violet bloom of the nightshade carries poison in its beauty. Some types of nightshade are even psychotropic. The tribes who’ve used it have attributed an assortment of healing and medicinal effects to the flower. It’s history in shamanism and witchcraft has deep roots. The brewed tea made from the flower is bitter, in stark contrast to the beauty of its bloom; in low doses it heals, in high doses it kills. Care to indulge in a sip?
