Jon Mueller (USA)

Sound: I Almost Expect to Be  Remembered as a Chair (Type records)

As an active drummer and percussionist over the past 25 years, Jon Mueller became increasingly focused on a physical dialog between situation and material, often by passing standard approaches to percussion and considering the space in which that sound is presented in order to create a larger experience for those listening.

His recordings have been featured in a variety of contexts, from cassette tape to MTV, and he has performed concerts throughout the U.S., Japan, and Europe. He has 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 groups Pele, Collections of Colonies of Bees, and more recently, Volcano Choir. He has also collaborated with artists such as James Plotkin, Marcus Schmickler, Bhob Rainey, Dan Burke, Asmus Tietchens, Lionel Marchetti, Z’EV, Jason Kahn, Jack Wright, and more. His recordings have been released by record labels as disparate as Table of the Elements, Polyvinyl Records, Type Recordings, Jagjaguwar, and many others.

Jon Mueller,’s workshop, entitled Listening and Creativity, will explore the process of listening and identify how that process can benefit one’s creative output regardless of discipline. Through stories and a series of cards, each individual will think about their own personal work, experience, and life in order to identify and act on areas of improvement. 

The worshop is free and open to all. However advance reservation is recomended in order to ensure entry as space is limited to 30 participants. Please send your reservation to :
