Tasha & Art-Tec = Tashtec!
We bring u kick ass all unique visual experiences!
Anastasia was introduced to the concept of Vj'ing in 2008 by Vj JokJok (Stijn Deprez) who taught her how to use OTZT and got her started. Together they created all red, black and white visual imagery.
Everything appearing on screen had to be infected by her signature overly crowded drawing style.
All walls, costumes, props where carefully selected, pimped or drawn on to fit the right mood.
Between 2008 & 2010 she spread her artistic vision and visuals in the london area as VA London.
Due to Olympic development she based herself back in Belgium from April 2010, where she met Art-tec who enlightened her with new technical knowledge.
To her vj'ing creates the opportunity to express herself in an easy and direct way to a broad audience. She lets the music (or even absence of it) guide her through her massive data base of home made visuals, and works up a touching strong combination of visual expressions transiting eternally.
Although she has the ability to adapt to any kind of music style or soundscape, her Vj-sets usually tend to a dark or mysterious vibe. When darkness or mystery is best avoided (very upbeat music) she turns the video mix into something manic, psychotic and funny.
As a Vj she makes a point of only using home made footage. She is always on the lookout for the next great setting such as abandoned factories/boats, impressive castles, idillic views, grim alleyways,… or extravagant outfit to use and get inspired by for future video shootings. The creation of the perfect visual, the perfect composition, setting and expression is as important to her as performing a smooth live set. Her passion both in making and mixing her visuals/vision is what makes Anastasia a very talented and dedicated Vj.

Art-Tec’s vj-sets are always interesting and fully adapted to the music.
He can handle any music genre, techno, acid, electro,core,hardtek,dubstep, psychedelic music, rock, post-rock, …
