Join us for a special Saturday evening of gong sounds with Jon Mueller. Jon has played at our studio multiple times, and each time is a noteworthy experience.
Jon Mueller has been a drummer and percussionist for over twenty-five years, performing throughout North America, Europe, United Kingdom, and Japan including the esteemed venues New Museum (NY), The Arnolfini (Bristol, UK), Musée des Beaux-Arts de Montréal, (Montréal, QC) and the Guggenheim Museum (NY).
The aim of Mueller’s solo performance is to engage an audience in listening practice by creating a variety of input both recognizable and not, understood and not, which causes a unique experience in each individual. The session at Saffron Yoga Center will feature over ten gongs of various sizes and types.
In addition to his solo work, he was a founding member of the bands Volcano Choir, Collections of Colonies of Bees, and Pele, and directed the multi-disciplinary project Death Blues, encouraging presence and celebration of each moment. More info at rhythmplex.com.
