Ce disque est le fruit d’une hybridation de l’oeuvre Walden; or, Life in woods (1854) de Henry David Thoreau et du programme Mercury Seven (1958) dont la mission a été d’envoyer des hommes sur orbite, dans l’espace.
Cette pièce musicale électronique et acoustique se compose en plusieurs paysages sonores, ponctués par les voix de l'astronaute Scott Carpenter, ainsi que du texte lu de Thoreau.
