Jassem Hindi was born in Saudi Arabia and studied philosophy at the Sorbonne in Paris.
Performer, sound maker, teacher, writer, his work extends internationally, involving mostly politically engaged work and the study of strange objects.
As a performer and as a maker he participates to the construction of political poems, using a hybrid technique made out of broken body practices, broken objects practices, broken sound practices.
As a musician, he is using mainly diverted machines, lo-fi field recordings, feedbacks, in the spirit of experimental music (Graham Lambkin, Andrea Neumann, Kevin Drumm, Jason Lescalleet) influenced by doom, video editing techniques and older masters in the likes of Alvin Lucier, Parmegiani or Bellini. In 2016 he has participated in the writing, performing and sound making of collaborative / shared authorship pieces: Murder Dance (last dates: Cork, Helsinki), future friend/ships (last dates: Hamburg, New York), Turbulence (last dates:Oslo, Berlin) and Zombies (last dates: Dublin, San Francisco)
