The journey of a seed begins in the archives of the Botanical Garden of Madrid
and ends in the place where it was collected in colonial times: an Afro-Peruvian village on the southern coast of Peru.

During a two-week stay in March 2024, TASIO, the producer and sound designer of the film 'Estados Generales', embarked on a unique production journey. This involved cataloguing, conceptualization, and sound design, all while engaging in collective viewings of the film and receiving mentoring from local residents. The process was enriched by the presence and advice of Dr. Ana Rodríguez Cruz, a renowned expert in botanical archaeology.


Javi Tasio is an independent sound and film producer. He promotes projects that blur the line between reality and fiction, with a natural tendency towards new languages ​​through sound experimentation, formats and narrative. He combines this activity with his other facets as a sound designer and musician.

As a curator, he promotes meetings and projects around new sound, visual and performative trends that combine artistic and scientific disciplines from the UMMM label.

It is part of the project Esto no es una poesía, of the Paciencia group and of the BRBR collective.
