Tongue and Cheek
Montez Press Radio and WGXC

Tongue and Cheek is a radio broadcast that leads listeners through vocal and movement exercises. Broadcasts are composed of warm-ups, conversations, and archival sound that focus on language and communication. We think about communication in a broad sense, leading listeners through exercises that reimagine the limits of the human body, social interdependence, and interspecies or non-species communication. 

Voiced and led by Tim Simonds, Aaron Lehman and Emma McCormick-Goodhart 
Broadcast here, 8AM and 8PM everyday. 

To listen to future and archived broadcasts: 
First Tuesday of the month 2:00PM–3:00PM EST on WGXC

Tongue and Cheek was first developed and aired on Montez Press Radio beginning in the summer of 2018. Montez Press Radio is an experimental radio station and commissioning platform for unexpected works from artists and other creative voices. MPR continues to air new episodes of Tongue and Cheek during its monthly live broadcast at 46 Canal St in Chinatown, New York.

In 2019 Tongue and Cheek started an additional monthly broadcast on WGXC (90.7FM Acra, NY), Wave Farm’s community radio station. WGXC: Radio for Open Ears “is a full-power, non-commercial, listener-supported station in New York’s Upper Hudson Valley operating out of studios in Hudson and the Wave Farm Study Center in Acra.”

Lend me your ears!
Shakespeare, Julius Caesar 

There are messages primarily serving to establish, to prolong, or to discontinue communication, to check whether the channel works… Dorothy Parker caught eloquent examples: “‘Well!’ the young man said. ‘Well!’ she said. ‘Well, here we are’ he said. ‘Here we are’ she said, ‘Aren’t we?’ ‘I should say we were’ he said, ‘Eeyop! Here we are.’ ‘Well!’ she said. ‘Well!’ he said, ‘well.’ ” 
Roman Jakobson, “Linguistics and Poetics” 

To reach an arm out of one’s mouth, peek through one’s ear, and speak out of one’s eye. Communication happens by any means possible. It is the different ways bodies extend themselves, as limbs that bridge things—reaching out, stretching and sometimes touching, with a light tap, “Marco!”

How we voice, how we gesture, how we manner, how we empathize.
Exercises to find all ways of thinking of language, and to exercise them as their own paths of communication.

To empathize over radio. Invite to do the same—feel, mimic, echo. “Polo”
The sound of leading, of following, of teaching speaking. 
And learning to make a body of a limb.

A collection of hesitations, misspellings, and auto-corrections in teaching. ╲╱╲╱╲╱╲╱╲╱╲╱╲╱╲‬  is composed of a typed transcription and enlarged images of a teacher’s handwritten marginalia on students’ essays; moments that uncover indecisions, or masked spelling mistakes—where an erring “a” in “differance” has been gently transformed into an “e.” The book is printed on trace paper, a kind of transparency that encourages things to get in the way of each other—transparency that doesn’t clarify. 

Printed on the occasion of the exhibition I said, “say they” at Rond-Point Projects, Marseille (2017). ╲╱╲╱╲╱╲╱╲╱╲╱╲╱╲ ‬ has been sold and distributed through Printed Matter (NY), Greene Naftali (NY), International Print Center New York, Rond Point Projects (Marseille), Burlington City Arts (VT), Colophon Art Books (Paris), and Cathouse Proper (NY)

For the U.S. release of ╲╱╲╱╲╱╲╱╲╱╲╱╲╱╲ the book was read by a group of teachers following a set of exercises to read in the musical structure of a canon. 

at Cathouse Proper at 524 Projects (Brooklyn, New York), in the context of Leslie Brack’s exhibition, Memorandum

A group of faculty, teachers, and PhD candidates go through a set of exercises to learn how to read the pages of ‮╲╱╲╱╲╱╲╱╲╱╲╱╲╱╲‬, find a collective pace, vocalize over each other’s voices, and eventually read together in the musical structure of a canon. Read by Daniel Ayat, Elæ [Lynne DeSilva-Johnson], Thom Donovan, Emily Martin, Tom Rocha, Andrew Starner, Kyle Waugh, and Tim Simonds. Special thanks to Leslie Brack, Peter Bussigel, David Dixon and Ethan Ryman.

Alongside, teacher’s margins, and solips, these prints are reflections on the role and voice of a teacher, focusing on qualities that are not associated with a teacher. These images are printed screen captures, showing the standard application window of Microsoft Word and a personal desktop behind. Typed in the document is a transcription of an endnote responding to a student’s paper. The errors and revisions of the teacher’s writing are emphasized by the editing symbols of Microsoft Word.
