PRINCIPLES OF NON-ISOLATION IN AUDIO #8 Some nautical themes this week, which is fantastic cause the heat is really getting to us. First up this week we have a top-notch duo with Neil Jendon and Stephan Moore , both from Chicago. I have seen Neil play modular synth in Chicago before, but Stephan is new to me, and the two of them match very nicely in a long-form cut and twist. At this point in the live broadcast, things are rolling smooth as silk. Up next is some serious anchor weight with Suki O'Kane and Jorge Bachman . When I asked Suki to play our series, she suggested a duo with Jorge with whom she had a previously scheduled and then cancelled performance due to closures-19. Happy to provide a home for this duo as it cooks. And at this point in the live broadcast, my laptop (and video machine and broadcast host) is starting to cook too! I notice the video getting choppy, but the audio is still pristine. After another well-curated break by WOBBLY who is providing the earglue t radio/////PONIIA #7

PRINCIPLES OF NON-ISOLATION IN AUDIO #7 It's no secret I stan Headboggle , but this week's pairing of the heady one (still stationed in the Tenderloin/SF) with Michael Sugarman, aka Sug (finishing some degree in Cambridge, MA) is the brainchild of Soliday who has been clamoring for this duo from the beginning. It does not disappoint. They squeeze together like a couple of hairy fleshballs healing and melting into one another. Headboggle exits the set prematurely with an internet disconnect which is the live streamer's version of the noise table dump. Alexandra Buschman/Demonsleeper (Oakland, CA), one half of the brujer í a rhythm and noise duo Las Sucias , and one of my favorite vocalist-noisers around, requested a duo with her pal Rafael Vargas-Bernard, aka Calnepuelco , who is currently in Miami, FL. They deliver a harsh-strong wall of vocal-synth noise. Maybe the purest noise set we've had in this series. Intense and earth-quaking. The 4tet, slow to start, ends up radio/////PONIIA #6

PRINCIPLES OF NON-ISOLATION IN AUDIO #6 This group, new to me, consisting of Anna Friz (Santa Cruz, CA), Jeff Kolar (CHI, IL), Stephen Germana (WPB, FL), Peter Speer (AVL, NC), Jonny Farrow (Vermont) perform as NRRF B and are a group of bona fide RADIO artists. That's exciting to me and they really deliver an ongoing pastiche of thought transmissions to push and pull you into and out of focus. Inspired! and well-supported by our local fave DJ LUCY. pre-show music (DJ LUCY) 0:00:00 - 0:14:08 Anna Friz <+> Jeff Kolar 0:14:08 - 0:42:43 interlude 1 (DJ LUCY) 0:42:43 - 0:56:38 Stephen Germana <+> Peter Speer <+> Jonny Farrow 0:56:38 - 1:31:11 interlude 2 (DJ LUCY) 1:31:11 - 1:42:35 NRRF B 1:42:35 - 2:15:22 post-show music (DJ LUCY) 2:15:22 - 2:40:36 stay safe and don't forget to  back up yr hard drives! total running time 2hr40min radio/////PONIIA #5

PRINCIPLES OF NON-ISOLATION IN AUDIO #5 Dreamy fantasy lineup for this PONIIA with duos of Albert Ortega <+> Todd A. Carter followed by Zachary James Watkins <+> Thomas Dimuzio  and then the full PONIIA 4tet. Tasty pre/post/inter-show morsels provided by DJ Fly-Faced Necronomicones Served by Marziveined Vampires .  I've known Albert for years and seen him play under his own name as well as Legg Lake and Dirty Branchez. He never disappoints and is always moving in non-linear paths forward with synths and shakers and gourds. Todd is part of TV POW in Chicago and for this gig he stuck a microphone out his window and broadcast the sounds of Ashland Ave amongst some heavy 'other' sounds. Zach is from the venerable Black Spirituals and brought his axe to PLAY with Thomas and his wall of Buchla. This is a HEAVY PONIIA nicely supported by Fly-Faced's nod to the best of horror scores and demented electronics. pre-show music (DJ FLY-FACED) 0:00:00 - 0:14:17 Albert
