Jon Mueller (Milwaukee, WI)

“As an active drummer and percussionist over the past 25 years, I became increasingly focused on a physical dialog between situation and material, often bypassing standard approaches to percussion and considering the space in which that sound is presented in order to create a larger experience for those listening. My recordings have been featured in a variety of contexts, from cassette tape to MTV, and I’ve performed concerts throughout the U.S., Japan, and Europe. I have worked with members of the groups Swans, Wilco, Bon Iver, and Rhys Chatham’s Guitar Trio, as well as being a longtime member of the group Collections of Colonies of Bees, and more recently, Volcano Choir. I’ve also collaborated with artists such as James Plotkin, Marcus Schmickler, Dan Burke, Asmus Tietchens, Lionel Marchetti, Z’EV, Jason Kahn, Jack Wright, and many others. My complete recording discography can be viewed here. I was artist-in-residence in Nijmegen, Netherlandsas part of the Brombron project, talked about my work at Weslyan University, composed music for film screenings, and held workshops for people about how to think differently about listening.”
