´╗┐Corn Moon, September 2, 2020

The Rule: make a sound recording 

12 minute sound loop

Late summer night sounds remind me of a symphony of insects.  The day is filled with the humming and thrumming of pollinators and bird song. The sounds of human life intrude as well. Careful listeners will hear a performer at the Roger Sherman Inn,  preschoolers singing, airplanes, lawn mowers, and, of course, cars. I tried to focus on the natural sounds, but I did not remove or avoid the sounds of suburbia.
Most years, the full moon in September is known as the Harvest Moon. The Harvest moon name is reserved for the full moon that falls closest to the equinox, the astrological beginning of Fall. In 2020, the September full moon, too early to be the Harvest Moon, was the "Corn Moon” which happens once every three years. 
September's full moon was given its name by the Algonquin tribes living in the northeastern U.S., according to
The Old Farmer's Almanac.  The specific name, micheenee kesos, meant that corn was edible.
