Jon Mueller – Composer Mix (via Type)
A deliriously wide-spanning mix of composers
from percussionist Jon Mueller.

Jon Mueller – Composer Mix by _type
Track List and Description, HERE.


“Spanning vocal, percussion, orchestral, and electronic music, this mix highlights some of the composers I’ve discovered recently, as well as stuff I’ve listened to for many years. There’s no real theme to the mix beyond that, but I think there’s a nice flow here, and a great display of ideas overall.”

Milwaukee-based drummer/percussionist and composer, Jon Mueller (ex. Collections of Colonies of Bees, Volcano Choir) is mostly known for his involvement in the U.S. Midwest post-rock group Pele.

The Whole’ might be avant-percussionist Jon Mueller’s first album for the Type imprint but it’s far from his scene debut. Working in a plethora of bands for many years (including ‘Collections of Colonies of Bees’ and ‘Volcano Choir’ with Justin Vernon aka Bon Iver), Mueller has honed his sound to a distinct peak, and over the course of umpteen solo albums and collaborations has cemented his status as one of experimental music’s most revered drummers.
