"codespace" integrates realtime drawing and motion-images with electronic sounds that evoke an abstract place where organical and crystalline shapes pulsate and flow. generative (rule-based) processes or algorithms and realtime action by the artist are applied to basic shapes which in conjuction with finely graded colours comprise a rich palette of textures and shapes.

Empty dark space is inhabited by fast moving abstract shapes, structures with an architectural quality develop over extended periods of time. the piece evolves from dark and minimalist atmospheres to abstract densities, like a digital painting performed before the the viewer’s eyes. memory of the images accumulates, obtaining qualities like a painting or etching. reduction and concentration of elements helps to maintain the crucial focus, build the tension and give insights into the enigmatic and invisible world built of code. the lines of flight lead to explorations on shape and colour, choreographic movements and subaquatic flows, plays of lights and surfaces.

Coming from a background of improvised music and composed contemporary soundscapes, jasch applies processes to images in much the same way as he does with music. texturing and layering, temporal evolving structures and brief flashes of light play an important role in this abstract visual flow which oscillates and vibrates with a certain musical quality. the interplay between autonomous processes, algorithms and real-time gestural interaction through physical interfaces affects the composition of the pieces deeply. no element is completely prepared or preproduced. the resulting images are surprising, sensuous, sometimes erratic, always with an edge to them.
