Zocalo Hector Centeno

Zocalo was composed in 2008 for the Canadian 60x60 project. It’s made by manipulating field recordings done in Mexico City in November 2007. The Spanish word “Zocalo” is used to name the central plaza or town square that can be found in almost all the existing small towns and cities in Mexico and that generally becomes an important social hub. After spending 4 years away from my home country (the longest period I’ve spent away) suddenly I was back to see everything that was familiar but now with unfamiliar and fresh eyes.
