PRINCIPLES OF NON-ISOLATION IN AUDIO #22We have a real Chicago PONIIA smørgåsbord this week with RyanDunn + j.soliday, and Solt, which is comprised of Neil Jendon, Mike Hartman, and Paul Giallorenzo. Dunn+Soliday start the evening off with a smashy-smash fantastic etch-a-stretch-and-scratch yr noises set. Solt follows next with a very nice alien pulse and some kinda haunted closet groove. And the final 5tet is a masterful blend of these different approaches.  Our fave DJ Fly-Faced Necronomicones Served by Marziveined Vampires puts us all in the right space to go watch your new favorite giallo (Paul helps a bit too!).pre-show music (DJ Fly-Faced) 0:00:00 - 0:14:21

PRINCIPLES OF NON-ISOLATION IN AUDIO #212 heavy-hitter bands from the Midwest, or as Soliday put it, "the best of the Midwest". Whisker from Chicago, IL and Moth Cock from Kent, OH. Whisker is made up of Ben Billington and Andrew Scott Young. Moth Cock is Doug Gent and Pat Modugno. Two incredibly intense sets and then an unbelievable 4tet combining both bands. DJ LUCY is as close to a PONIIA house DJ as we get, and she delivers tonight with a lot of upbeat quirky tunes to offset the dread. One of the strongest PONIIA's to date for sure.

PRINCIPLES OF NON-ISOLATION IN AUDIO #20Dark orange mornings in California are the new new in 2020 and why not just add it to the growing list of nonsense we have to deal with. At least you have some seriously toxic sounds to go with your toxic air and political environment. This week's show features returning PONIIA all-star Norman Long (Chicago, IL) along with new recruits TanukiSpiderCat (SF, CA), and the longtime duo EKG comprised of Ernst Karel (West Marin, CA) and Kyle Bruckmann (Oakland, CA). Killer live sets from these four, robustly glued together by our good pal Jungle Junk spinning the interludes from San Juan, Puerto Rico.

PRINCIPLES OF NON-ISOLATION IN AUDIO #19Another "ensemble" night where we diverge from our usual format of 4 improvisers split into 2 duos and then a 4tet. Well, we do have 2 exquisite duos this week with Akosuen <+> Cinchel (both from Chicago), followed by Pamela Z <+> Wobbly (both from San Francisco), but our 3rd act is an 11-person ensemble conducted by Moe Staiano on Zoom. Our previous attempt at bringing folks together on Zoom for 0th's Scream Opera turned into a predictably fun but completely chaotic mess of Zoom artifacts and feedback (not unlike my 4 year-old's first Kindergarten Spanish class this morning). This time, we tried to prepare the Zoom meeting for better audio, and our musicians were more prepared, and I think the results are pretty fantastic. Bravo to Moe and his group for really bringing it. Akosuen and Cinchel blend their respective strings and keys into a gorgeous floaty dreamworld with edges. Pamela Z brings her chopped OP(era) to… radio/////PONIIA #18

PRINCIPLES OF NON-ISOLATION IN AUDIO #18Crazy high octane show this week with new UK pals Mariam Rezaei, Kenosist, and Petronn Sphene, alongside old Bay Area pals Midmight and Horaflora. Soliday is the mastermind of this show and things gel like a molten cigarette bucket burning on yr patio. There is a perfect edgy fidget to both Midmight and Horaflora that clicks just right in their duo. Mariam, Mark and Gretchen next kill a rapidfire skronky beat-oriented brain shiatsu that hurts just in the right way. And then, this 5tet of all 5 of these fookers is something to witness--serious embers floating in the air afterwards, and i'm not talking about Cali-fire-nia. The whole show is seared together by an incredible Mariam Rezaei DJ set, with a tasty Bay Area via UK tribute by Kenosist after the Bay duo plays.

PRINCIPLES OF NON-ISOLATION IN AUDIO #17Terrific show this week with Kim Nucci, Ezra Teboul, LeggLake, and Eric Leonardson. All set up and served by Bobby Ganush (Discos Extraños). We lost BobbyG right at the top of the evening due to some tech difficulties, so he doesn't join the first DJ set until the last song. Luckily we had some tunes ready to rock just in case. But this musical fiend makes up for it by providing killer "themed" sets throughout the rest of the evening, plus an extended 77-minute afterparty to get yr haunted groove on. 
The duo sets, starting with Kim + Ezra are particularly strong this week. Really nice interplay from these two. Followed up by another really superb duo from Albert and Eric. Eric's rich deep tones from his custom built electroacoustic instruments blend incredibly well with LeggLake's synth tones. As a 4tet, the whole thing deepens and broadens. Put this one on for your fish friends.
