Guest performer Jon Mueller

Milwaukee drummer and percussionist Jon Mueller presented his new solo percussion work, Physical Changes. Jim Shoenecker and David Bailey appeared with Mueller in a performance that combined percussion, electronic music and video to turn the fundamental concepts of rhythm and percussion into an entirely new experience that’s heard, seen and felt.

Mueller has been an active drummer and percussionist since the mid-80s, working regularly with the group Collections of Colonies of Bees. He has performed throughout the United States, Japan and Europe and played or recorded with members of Swans, Wilco, Bon Iver and Rhys Chatham’s Guitar Trio, among others. The performance was offered in conjunction with the Jump Cut Pop exhibition on view at the Haggerty through October 4.
