DJ Shakey, The Illustrated Interview



Jeannie Hopper sits down with Julie Covello aka DJ Shakey to talk Hobo-tech, Electro-Swing, her snowboarding beginnings, life at the living party known as Rubulad, her passion for alternative audio controllers, Ableton Live, the musician/inventor known as Moldover, the birth of the Warper Party phenomenon, her own musical productions with FreebassBK (with Aaron Goldsmith), and her 2011-12 project residency--DJ Shakey's Audio Control Adventure--at the Clocktower Gallery.

As founder of Shakey's Record Fair and The Warper Party, DJ Shakey is a leader in New York's Controllerism movement. She has performed at almost every major New York nightclub, is resident DJ for the Gotham Girls Roller Derby, and is a contributing editor of the website Controllerism.com. DJ Shakey is wholly focused on emerging talent and innovation. She won a student Academy Award for the hip hop film she wrote in the 80s, she was on the very first snowboard instruction team at Hunter Mountain, NY in the 90s, and she is currently a founder of and advocate for the "Controllerism" movement in electronic music performance. Shakey produces and hosts the Warper Party Radio Extravaganza on ARTonAIR.org along with her partner Banginclude. More jellyrolls at DJ Shakey

The Clocktower Gallery was founded by the alternative spaces movement pioneer Alanna Heiss in 1972. After a hiatus as a gallery space (after the Sept. 11, 2001 events nearby), the Clocktower Gallery reinaugurated its exhibition programming in 2005 as part of MoMA/PS1 and, after 2008, under the auspices of the newly founded Art International Radio (now Clocktower Productions). Clocktower Exhibits is home to interviews with and performances by its exhibitions' participating artists and curators over these many years.
