Jon Mueller (Death Blues, Volcano Choir)
SPB: How do you choose your album art?
Mueller: Each record is unique, but the aim is always to have the art say something about the work that the music cannot, to have it be another voice in communicating the idea. Sometimes this involves collaborating with others on imagery based on a discussion, while other times a vision is clear from the start, and then it's just a matter of finding or creating the material needed. In some ways, it's indicative of how the music evolves as well. It's never an arbitrary act.
