Anenon is Brian Allen Simon, an artist and the founder of the Non Projects record label. Constantly shedding the non-essential in search of a deep and individualized core, Brian’s music feels potent and refined, yet still raw. His work reaches audiences through speakers and venues where music is given serious consideration. An experimental artist using contemporary tools, Brian mines the intersection of electronics, jazz, improvisation and spiritual atmospherics.
He is a native of Los Angeles. Simon has performed internationally throughout Japan, Europe and North America, sharing the stage with the likes of Morton Subotnick, Julia Holter, Laurel Halo, Baths and many more.
“The mood is evocative of Vangelis’ Blade Runner soundtrack, but elsewhere things are less placid and misty-eyed; the drums on “Once” and “CXP” recreate the head-over-heels tumble of drum ‘n’ bass, inspiring greater urgency in Simon’s sax work. “Mouth” and “Petrol,” meanwhile, bring to mind Philip Glass’ work.” – Philip Sherburne / PITCHFORK March 2016
“The expansive music of Anenon evokes the sprawl of his native Los Angeles” – Sam Lefebvre / THE WIRE magazine March 2016
