radio/////PONIIA #14


We attempt a sort of 'band' night with PONIIA #14 with 3 ensembles instead of our standard 4 improvisers split into duos and 4tet. The whole thing ends up as kind of a gorgeous clusterfuck. The evening starts with Charm & Strange which is normally comprised of Sharkiface (connecting remotely from Yucca Valley) and Julia Mazawa (SF), but sometime between sound check and showtime, Sharki's gear takes a dump, and we spend the entire set trying (and failing) to solve the problem. So what you hear here is a robust solo Charm & Strange provided by the stupendous Julia Mazawa. Let's call it Strange. She brings it. After that we have a record release performance by RIPONE, a new project made up of Tyler Harwood (New Orleans, LA) + Peter Stopschinski (Austin, TX). This is some killer synth grooviness and you should go grab a stripper pole and get yr moves in. Top notch fun by these two longtime collaborators. Then, we have the 0th Scream Opera brought to you by the lovely digitally compressed feedback of Zoom. 0th is an art collective made of up Jacqueline Gordon, Amanda Warner, Canner Mefe, and Caryl Kientz. Here they are conducting a Scream Opera with invited participants and Caryl mute-conducting them on Zoom. Really, this is a giant ball of fun, wrapped in failure, dipped in beauty, or something like that. Maybe unlistenable, but you are welcome to give it a shot. The whole evening is well-sewn together by our fave, DJ LUCY, who once again, keeps us from falling apart, or at least gives us time to pick the pieces back up again.
