told:by - VJ Taras Gesh

This Week Told:By is featuring Taras Gesh from Russia.

Q: Where does your artist name or stage name come from?
A: It's my first name and surname
Q: What best discribes your VJing style?
A: My style to describe is difficult because I work not only in clubs, also at concerts with rock and jazzmusicians and also sometimes with the National Gallery. Usually I prepare special thematic graphic for each event and besides live vj-sets I do video installations  and interactive performances with a videocamera.
I do not adhere to one musical style and I like to experiment with different musical directions, therefore my VJing style is constantly transformed. But as I work with motiongraphics it allows me to create the exclusive material, which I also constantly complicate and change.
Q: Location/Act you ever want to do visuals for and why?
A: Oh, it is a difficult question because I never reflected on it :)
Actually I like to do what I do now and I consider that important not "where" but "how" you do it.
Sometimes I dream of any other new spaces, where video will have more values than music,
because vj's work is much more difficult than dj's work and we deserve it ;)
Q: Your personal famous last words?
A: Music it is possible to look
Q: Who should be the next VJ for told:by interviewsession?
A: There are a lot of interesting vj's in our world.
It is interesting to me to read interview to any vj. Thanks!
