Jon Mueller – Alphabet of Movements

Jon Mueller – Alphabet of Movements

Late last year, Volcano Choir member and avante-garde enthusiast Jon Mueller released a sublime and haunting piece of music called The Whole. It was a beautifully affected work- a gorgeously stretching howl of percussion and echos and atmosphere. On his follow up, Alphabet of Movements, Mueller has crafted a more organic piece of music. The pieces presented here are titled “I Almost Expected to Be Remembered as a Chair,” and everything is performed live. The results are breathtaking. Involving mainly snare drums and gongs, Alphabet of Movements is an album that stretches the boundaries of music and composition and requires listeners to sit down, focus, and enter Mueller’s innovative world of sound. Highly recommended.
