Jon Mueller/Death Blues (No Time Like The Present)

Presence. It’s about more than what happens in the here and now. It’s about the unique quality of spirit that animates the moment. Jon Mueller’s Death Blues (No Time Like The Present) digs into the core of this moment. It’s about music, because Jon is an eminent composer and percussionist, known for his work with members of Swans, Wilco, and Bon Iver; his founding the groups Pele, Collections of Colonies of Bees, and Volcano Choir; and his collaborations with Rhys Chatham, Z'EV and more. But it is also about all the senses— taste, scent, touch, as well as sight and sound— that make us present and alive to the moment.
To illustrate this, he is collaborating with choreographer Molly Shanahan, designer Dylan Schleicher (who is turning the Pitman Theatre into a labyrinth), musicians from Group of the Altos, Field Report, Testa Rosa, and Juniper Tar, and pop-up restaurateurs And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Crumbs. (Yes, there will be food.) It's an intimate and all-encompassing experience— so intimate and all-encompassing that only 100 people may be present at each performance.
