Jon Mueller formed the imprint Crouton in 1999, because of an interest in how people experience packaged sound and writing.
Crouton published over 40 releases in deluxe presentations; each of them collaborative projects that required much listening, creative thinking, planning, discussion, organization, and hands-on implementation. Crouton also organized events in the Milwaukee andChicago areas with artists from around the world. These were heavily documented by the press and even filmed as part of a PBS documentary.
Thanks to all those who have offered support. Crouton ended in 2009 and now Jon focuses exclusively on rhythmplex.com.
