I almost expect to be remembered as a chair

On June 22, Milwaukee-based percussionist Jon Mueller came to Minneapolis and performed his roughly 30 minute piece I almost expect to be remembered as a chair, for snare drum and processed gongs. It was an incrementally gathering storm of ringing overtones and dense, metallic partials, rising to a howl before returning to silence. Very satisfying stuff, apparently an augur of things to come on his imminent release, The Whole, on Type Records. Stay tuned for that- Mueller is a musician who makes the most abstract music really sing.
