Jon Mueller

Drummer and percussionist Jon Mueller was a founding member of the groups Pele, Collections of Colonies of Bees, and Volcano Choir, and has also worked with artists such as Rhys Chatham, James Plotkin, Marcus Schmickler, Bhob Rainey, Asmus Tietchens, Lionel Marchetti, Z’EV, Jason Kahn, Jack Wright, and many others.

As a solo artist, he focuses on the dialog between sound and the situation it’s presented in, often bypassing standard approaches to percussion and considering acoustics and concepts surrounding the work in order to create a larger experience for those listening.

He's performed throughout North America, Europe, United Kingdom, and Japan, at places such as New Museum (New York), The Arnolfini (Bristol, UK), Musée des Beaux-Arts de Montréal, (Montréal, QC), Issue Project Room (New York), Guggenheim (New York), Cafe OTO (London, UK), Experimental Intermedia (New York), and various bars, clubs, Universities, gallery spaces, basements, and non-traditional venues. His recordings have been released by record labels such as Table of the Elements, Polyvinyl Records, Type Recordings, Jagjaguwar, Hometapes, Important Records, Taiga Records, and others.
