LA producer/composer Brian Allen Simon retreats to the hills of Tuscany to further the vision of eclectic mix of woodwinds, synthesizers, and field recordings. Simon decamped overseas to attempt to find something pure and forgotten — capable of reaching into our DNA coding. Hints of John Cage and Steve Reich suffuse his manipulation of space, time, tension, and mood. Tongue is many things— a jazz album, an electronic album, an ambient album, a modern classical album. This album is packed with personal songs of acceptance constructed from saxophone, piano with synth, and field recording embellishments weaving in and out. Tongue is a self-contained universe, where emotional and intellectual articulation are physically let go. A masterwork of ineffable and profound beauty.
