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.

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 Extra├▒os). 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.

Hey! Another International PONIIA this week matching upMichael Zelnerfrom Oakland, CA;Luerfrom Fargo, ND;Pablo Perez from Los Angeles, CA; andTerence Fuller from Winnipeg, Manitoba in Canada; with DJ LUCY in San Francisco filling us up with dread. Great show all around and particularly happy to have Luer back for a 2nd round along with a rare live appearance by Michael Zelner. Terrific duo they make. Big thanks to Albert Ortega for hooking us up with Pablo Perez -- his fast cut rhythm and noise interweaves beautifully with the dirty kkrakkling of Terence Fuller. We take one week off and return in 2. Enjoy your summer break.

On July 6, 2020 prolific composer extraordinaire, Ennio Morricone, passed away, leaving a massive legacy of amazing film music, composition, and sonic experimentation that will stretch and bend genres and minds until the end of time. For this week's PONIIA, we are blessed to have a return visit by DJ Fly-Faced Necronomicones Served by Marziveined Vampires, who happens to be a huge Morricone aficionado. We asked Fly-Faced if she would do a tribute to il Maestro, and she got back to us with "i've, um, pulled 7 hours of music". She cut that 7 hours down some, but we still have a marathon presentation for you this week. The entire show with the live sets totals close to 6 hours. Not a second wasted or filler, and as Fly-Faced mentioned many times, she had to cut out A LOT.
Speaking of the live acts--this week we have visits by Cruel Work engineered by Angela Roberts on cello and Scott Goff on electronics, James Goode, who may or may…
