About this event

7PM Doors / 8PM Show / All Ages Acclaimed Spanish ambient composer Suso Siz graces us with his first-ever Chicagoperformance, conjuring radiant sound worlds from processed guitar. Bitchin Bajas open the evening, all accompanied by animmersive, architecturally-mapped light show inside the historic cathedral. At the forefront of Spains experimental music scene since the late 1970s, Suso Siz is an imaginative and subtle guitar player whose compositions manifest a unique form of musical hypnosis. Siz has produced more than 100 records for other artists, playing and collaborating with Steve Roach, Jorge Reyes, Michael Brook, Stephan Micus, Christian Fennesz, Arve Henriksen, Robert Rich, Hans-Joachim Roedelius, Gigi Masin, and Suzanne Kraft. Siz has released more than 20 solo albums, including Odisea (2016) a compilation of his early solo works and unreleased tracks, Rainworks (2017) and Nothing Is Objective (2019), all through esteemed Dutch record label Music From Memory. Chicago trio Bitchin Bajas make trance-inducing instrumental music with a delicate balance of synthetic and non-electronic instruments. Launched in 2010 as a solo project for Cooper Crain, it was expanded to a trio soon after with the inclusion of Dan Quinlivan and Rob Frye. Albums documenting the groups development arrived often, with 2011s Water Wrackets, 2012s Vibraquatic, and 2013s more fully realized Bitchitronics and 2014s S/T. Though the band had either self-released its music or worked with a variety of lesser-known indie labels, Bitchitronics arrived on Drag City. Their collaborative records with Bonnie Prince Billy and Natural Information Society came soon after as well as the original soundtrack to Olivia Wyatts film Sailing a Sinking Sea. The double-album Bajas Fresh appeared in 2017 and the band toured in support of what was their most intricate recording to date. The band had recorded their version of Sun Ras Angels and Demons at Play for Bajas Fresh, and in 2021 they further demonstrated
