The title of this episode comes from p.29 of a book by Jennie Gottschalk titled 'Experimental Music Since 1970'.
This piece seeks to illustrate the boundary between silence (sometimes construed as an absence of will or action) and listening (sometimes construed as an individual act or embodiment of purpose/will). Think of it as an attempt to venture beyond the listening experience created by John Cage’s 4’33”.
A rock has no will; it simply exists. A listener, on the other hand, has a will and can’t help but assign meaning to things and events. A listener can’t help but act.

This project is an ongoing internet collaboration curated by regina veldon. “Our parents told us to always remember home, the evening star” is a Facebook group. An internet mixtape.
Curator regina veldon writes:
“I discussed tonight the possibility of creating work based around the title ‘our parents told us to always remember home, the evening star’ and the image nasa released of earth as a bright, starlike object in the evening sky of mars.
The proposition, in more detail, is as follows:
The title of the works should be ‘our parents told us to always remember home, the evening star’
Artists are free to interpret the title and photograph any way they like
The works must be published by the artists themselves and each work must provide links back to the other works using the title so that we build up a web of links
The idea is to provide a hope for the future, to imagine the experiences of children born on a future mars colony.
The project is designed to extend past those invited and everyone who takes part is encouraged to ask others they know to produce their own work”

The recordings were made at various times of day; the progression of time in this episode reflects the progression of time in the field, starting from early morning and continuing through mid-afternoon.
