CNR 2012: Participants: Dek (BEL)
He studied cinema techniques at INRACI in Brussels till 2004, and discovered the world of animation and especially stop motion, using puppets to create another kind of artificial life.
In the same time, he got obsessed by robots and by the fact of creating artifical life and giving consciousness to machines, and fell in love with electronic music.
He released his first tracks under the alias of "Robot Comes to Me", under Creative Commons license at dustshop.tk, the netlabel created by his friend This One.
In 2007, he moved to Saint-Etienne, France, another industrial town, to live with his girlfiend MKZ.
They acted together as VJ's under the name of "Codex Astartes" in Techno parties, linking together psychedelism and industrial/ cyberpunk culture, and they recently selfproduced a promotional video (live shot, 2D/3D animation) for a local underground electronic artist from Saint-Etienne, Pink Ipnotika, on a song called "Droid Kick". And they keep pasting stencils posters in their town!
Dek still produced electronic music, and will released soon Psychedelic Trance tracks!
