On September 14th, 2011, The Vitrolum Republic got the opportunity to play at one of Milwaukee’s oldest landmarks, the cathedral in downtown Milwaukee on the campus of Marquette University called the Church of the Gesu. In conjunction with the opening of Current Tendencies II at the Haggerty Museum of Art, which featured sound sculptures by the Vitrolum Republic’s own Jordan Waraksa, the band partnered with organist John Weissrock and took advantage of the natural acoustics of the cathedral to put on a unique performance.
We captured that performance with a multi-track recording, engineered by band member Chuck Lawton who also produced their last album, and videography provided by Marquette University. This performance is now released to the public.
