On January 12, 2012 DJ Shakey hosted a multi-room, multi-media Warper Party performance gala at the Clocktower Gallery as part of her production and project residency here for ARTonAIR.org. Over 24 artists occupied 8 spaces for 3-plus hours illuminating the theme of alternative controllers for electronic instruments both audio and video.
This is DJ Shakey's set from that night.
