As part of our Sun Ra/El Saturn Commissions series, ESS asked Damon Locks (The Eternals) to create a new artwork responding to ESS’s extensive archive of Sun Ra recordings. In lieu of a solo work, he teamed up with writer/performer Terri Kapsalis, The Eternals’ Wayne Montana, and animator Rob Shaw to collaborate on an 18-minute video. Throughout the process, Locks has been working on a new series of related prints that will be on display in ESS’ Audible Gallery through April 4. At the opening of the exhibition of these prints on Saturday February 4th, the video—Noon Moons—will screen at 7:30 and 8:30pm.
