"The moon is a friend for the lonesome to talk to."

Carl Sandburg

Calendar of Moons: A compilation of songs inspired by the full moon

The full moon has many names. Almost as though with every month, a different moon greets us in the sky.

For this compilation, I asked eleven friends to write a track inspired by a particular full moon name and I wrote one myself.

At the end of the tape and included with the download there is a bonus moon, a 13th moon track which was recorded in a tunnel beneath a castle under the first full moon of January 2014 with dogs splashing through the pools of water in which we stood.

This is the first release on Sofia Records, a tiny label with tiny editions of recordings made by the people around me.

Here is a list of the different names by which the full moon is known in different cultures.
