Anastasya Koshkin works with electroacoustic music, video art, and interdisciplinary media. Her childhood was distributed across an array of cultural borders. Born in Belarus, she lived in Israel, Canada, and the United States.

Ana received a teaching assistant fellowship at the Department of Music of the University of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, a master's degree from Sint-Lukas University in Brussels, and bachelor's degree at Ryerson University in Toronto. Her points of inspiration are folklore, and items of ancient and ethnic origin. Within her written and music work she incorporates symbols and elements from the natural environment, philosophy, psychology, and creative writing. Her academic and artistic work is developed alongside learning about and utilizing cultural artifacts and time-based processes as points of importance. Interdisciplinary studies are of particular interest to her as well as the intersection points where nature and culture coalesce.
