Press Release

In the Vault, CvsD presents "Noon Moons," a video by Damon Locks, Terri Kapsalis, Wayne Montana, and Rob Shaw.

In 2012, musician Damon Locks and writer Terri Kapsalis were each separately commissioned by Chicago's Experimental Sound Studio to create pieces in response to the ESS Sun Ra/Alton Abraham archive. In lieu of solo work, they teamed up and invited Wayne Montana, Locks' colleague in the Eternals, to work with them to make a sound piece. Finished piece in hand, the threesome then welcomed animator Rob Shaw to create an accompanying visual track.  Clocking in at 17:30 minutes, incorporating elements of Sun Ra's equations-based philosophy and an outlook that is simultaneously bleak and optimistic, "Noon Moons" is the result of their collaboration.
