The Sun Ra/ El Saturn archive contains over 700 hours of recorded material left behind by Sun Ra and his Chicago-based manager Alton Abraham. Damon Locks and Terri Kapsalis were commissioned by Experimental Sound Studio to create pieces in response to this archive. In lieu of solo work, they teamed up and invited The Eternals' Wayne Montana to work with them to make a sound piece. They then welcomed animator Rob Shaw to create an accompanying visual track. "Noon Moons" is the result of their collaboration.
