Jon Mueller : "Halves"

This release is now sold out. Please contact distributors for copies. Discriminate Music and Winds Measure Recordings' online shop should have a few copies, but *not yet*. In a week or so. Possibly more than those two ; we're still working it all out. Thanks to everyone who placed and order and your support ! More to come soon ...

(Notice #13) Jon Mueller : " Halves "

Notice Recordings is very proud to release these pieces by Jon Mueller. For those who have been lucky enough to experience his recent live performances, you may have an idea of what to expect. Based on a simple setup featuring a bracing, undulating drumroll, layers of gleaming aural textures gradually accumulate within themselves, variegated by softly shifting rhythmic patterns. Such a body of sound translates well on magnetic tape ; the thick infrastructure of this music will only change with time and chosen methods of playback.
- Artwork by E. Lindorff-Ellery, packaging concept by Travis Bird. 3-colour letterpress printed on heavy stock.
- Insert comes in two halves : one side featuring metallic gold ink, the other side featuring metallic silver ink. These two halves meet and form a whole within the cassette tape case.
- An edition of 60.

- Pro-dubbed, imprinted clear cassettes.

Prices are 7.5$ North America / 10.5$ World. As always, please send payment to noticerecordings[at]gmail[dot]com. Please contact us for cash or trade orders or other arrangements...
We have a slight price increase this time due to a double print-run and significantly more time spent assembling and cutting the inserts. Normal prices to resume next time.
All orders will receive stickers, while supplies last. Letterpress cards featuring new artwork will be available in the future.

Illusion of Safety, Travis Bird & Daniel Burke tour

Notice's Travis Bird will be embarking shortly on an East coast tour with Daniel Burke.

Jon Mueller, Illusion of Safety at Reuben's Palace

Fire is conjured from areas of concentrated energy as are the visceral textures of Jon Mueller's confrontational live performances — teeming with shifting miniature aural activities.

Photograph taken last night at Reuben's Palace in Chicago. Although, unfortunately, Reuben was not present for the show. Also playing that night was Illusion of Safety, presenting one of his many intense, aggressively undulating modular synth experiments, featuring impromptu guitar playing by Travis Bird . IOS should have a live double-cassette release within a couple months.

Mueller's cassette release on Notice Recordings, " Halves ", should be released in a few weeks, along with an as-yet-untitled C90 from Ben Owen.

Much to come ; stay in touch.
All the best to you during this transitory period.
