FTAM Presents: JON MUELLER with HELLO DEATH + CREDENTIALS
From Tiny Mix Tapes...
"Sure, youve heard percussion before. Thinking about all your favorite drummers, no doubt certain specific sounds echo through your head. Ba dum tss, or Fssssssss SPROT, sometimes wowowowo rahhh, wowowowo Zahhh Zong, or even pikapika, pikachu. Common sounds weve all heard emanating from, say, a rack tom.
"Well, get ready to have your conceptions of percussive audio tested with Canto, the latest album from avant-garde percussionist Jon Mueller.
"Canto is a work composed of gongs, voice, and percussion. It explores the expansive qualities qualities of each, yet shows how they still can come together to create a singular, resonant sound. As a canto is a section of a larger poem, so too are the three tracks that compose Canto Oil, Wick, Flame taken to be distinct parts that form a whole.
"Hear just how long the sound of a gong can ring out for yourself, when Canto comes out June 7 via SIGE Records."
From The Wisconsin Gazette...
"Though the darkness is ever present, it mustnt be all consuming. This is what the hauntingly beautiful music of Hello Death reminds us.
"Hello Death combines elements of folk, rock, choral and baroque. In spirit, it is not that dissimilar to heavy metal. Menace lies just beneath Hello Death's elegant, ornate surface."
