Jasmin works in music, video and installation. His background is in music technology and, therefore, sound is his medium of choice. His work is experimental, and quite often his process involves collaborating with a team of specialist to create a project. However, he felt confident to create an etching, after all, his grandfather was Pablo Picasso.

Writing on his print, Jasmin states: “During my residency at Villa Lena I chose to develop a visual score serving as navigational blueprint between the now and the soon-to-be. The project conceptualizes the creative process as a gesture through time, where the present is an engine of reflection informing the construction of strategies deployed towards the future.

In time-based forms like music, what is unknown is “What happens next”. In that sense, I view the musical score as a mapping of the proximate.

Visually, I found it important to reference blueprints because they imply construction at a future date. The hand which is central in the print was influenced by research in early notation music systems, namely the Guidonian Hand, a medieval mnemonic devise for singing monks.”

Select exhibition history includes: Cutlog, New York and Paris; Speak My Language, a periodic music event in Los Angeles; THE NOISE INDEX, a research platform that explores questions emerging from increased access to information, and the consequences of information saturation.
