Jon Mueller
Described by Pitchfork as “an audacious ringleader for new music,” Jon Mueller has been an active drummer and percussionist over the past twenty-five years. A founding member of the groups Pele, Collections of Colonies of Bees, and Volcano Choir, Mueller has additionally worked with members of the groups Swans, Wilco, Bon Iver, and Rhys Chatham’s Guitar Trio. Increasingly focused on a physical dialogue between situation and material, Mueller often bypasses standard approaches to percussion and considers the space in which that sound is presented in order to create a larger experience for those listening. This performance will be the New York premiere of “I Almost Expect To Be Remembered As A Chair,” based on Mueller’s 2010 CD The Whole.
