Jason Haye's interests in the artistic practice began in 2001 where he studied music production at the Weekend Arts College and Midi Music Company in London. During that period a passion for video editing led to him pursuing a career in the post production industry. Haye continued to experiment with sound and in 2007 he created Project 5am which was stimulated by a peak experience during that exact moment in time and the Allen Ginsberg poem
It was under this banner where Haye started to produce a series of interdisciplinary works. In 2008 the electronica album ‘Quixotes of Moons Fight The Windmills of Brixton’ was released on the Monotonik net label. 2009 marked the first Project 5am audiovisual performance which took place in the Camden venue, Inspiral Lounge. The same year provided a collaboration with performance artists ‘Sounds In Bloom’, producing the piece ‘Space Mothlight’ which was inspired by experimental filmmaker Stan Brakhage. In 2010 Project 5am was selected to take part in the ‘Interrogation’, socially engaged art project staged in West Bromwich.
An aspiration to express creativity via other forms of aesthetics and a curiosity to find an academic language for the intuitive process of Project 5am, led Haye to study a BA Fine Art degree at the University Campus of Suffolk.
In 2012/2013 a selection of Project 5am films were featured at the 7th International Art And Music Festival in Lithuania and the video ‘Some kind of wonderful’ was one of the 142 films chosen for the Danish film auteur Lars Von Trier community project ‘Gesamt’ which was part of the 2012 Copenhagen Art Festival.
Haye completed his BA Fine art degree in 2014. His latest project titled ‘Flux Without Pause ‘ highlights how matching micro narratives against meta narratives in the “third space” is key for transformation and change.
