Got to Shake It Up Now w Allee Willis – Tummelvision 5

Episode 5 – Download the Show

The 80s title of today’s show comes from Stir It Up one of many hits written by our guest Allee Willis who creates in layers, in many mediums and is a pioneering social artist. Allee works in music, video animation, visual art, painting, digital forms, kitsch and in party throwing. Her focus on process and collaboration heart and pioneering tech and web understanding makes her the ur Tummelvision guest (not to mention her collection of 15 cowbells which she pulled out to play with us).

Allee’s full-length bio and very deep and engaging site are worth a real visit to get at the richness and creativity in what she is doing. A short list includes these credits: September, Boogie Wonderland, Theme Song From Friends, score for musical The Color Purple, motorized paintings that go with her hit What Have I Done To Deserve This, kitsch collaboratioins with the Del Rubio Triplets and 90 year old drummer Jerrie

Tummelvision peeps called her the Hugh Hefner of tech upon hearing that Allee has 42,000 terrabytes of data in her own server room.

If you only have time to watch one Tummelvision, make it this one. Although we think it will lead you to more. This awesome conversation made it clear that Tummelvision is picking up on a path Allee began to cut as early as 1991 to focus attention in Silicon Valley and Hollywood on the collaborative possibilities of art that is networked and never-ending.

She’s offered to come back and we’d like to find a way for everyone who’s part of the budding Tummelvison community to collaborate on a song or playing music together live. Any suggestions or software or platform recommendations are welcome.

Give the show a listen (video coming soon) and check out Allee’s stuff and buy some. to enjoy it and support her ability to make more. And let us know how you’d like to do a mass collaboration with her and Tummelvision.
