The volume of wild heaven incarnate; Isa Christ LIVE on My Castle of Quiet, tonight!

Here comes an artist I have been looking forward to presenting on the radio show for some time now—Isa Christ, aka Dylan Hay, proprietor of the Port d'Or live-music and art space in Brooklyn, and hard-noise purveyor extraordinaire. Isa gets lost in the powerful tones of his sets, and I, as a fan and spectator, have been only too pleased to do the same.

Isa Christ has been knocking out audiences with intensely physical performances of high-volume feedback manipulation, sometimes utilizing electric guitar, but more often than not, merely a quarter-inch cable, amplification, and a table or a tool-belt's worth of digital effects, and a critical element—his body, writhing, shaking, and sometimes stripping naked—in a Saint Vitus' dance of volume-induced passion and power.

Brooklyn showgoers are still talking about Isa's soul-flattening live collaborations with Telecult Powers. His sets are ecstatic, fierce and enveloping, both born out of a trance and trance-inducing, and though the magic of radio cannot transmit the visual, we can give you the audio, which on its own is likely to be similar to nothing you've ever heard. A one-man Theatre of Eternal Music? Perhaps. The tones and overtones bounce around the room, and the listener tends to forget the who, what and where, and get lost in the sonic assault. Isa Christ brings it live and in-the-moment to My Castle of Quiet, where he plans to "exploit the radio waves and format."

Be ready for a one-of-a-kind presentation.
