"Punto Cero Aragón is a sound project created by experimental musician Luis Tabuenca in collaboration with musician Wade Matthews and ethnomusicologist Ana Maria Alarcón-Jiménez. Inspired by the sonic heritage of Aragon, Luis and Wade have created a series of pieces that reflect and question upon issues of memory, space and place."-from the liner notes
"This disk reflects on the local, with all the emotional, psychological and physiological implications embodied in words like "home" or "territory." Curiously, none of the people involved in this project lives where they were born. For several of them, "home" is little more than a broken mirror of distant, coexistent fragments. Each has had to travel far and wide to find her or himself, and to be able to think in terms of the local. Eager to rest, to pause for a moment and simply observe and listen, the creators of this disk have marked a point on the sound map of Aragon, drawing on its sounds not only as material for their art, but as a basis for living and evoking, from Aragon, that sense of home that everyone, but especially those who travel, carries within.
Among the many sounds that inhabit this project are words, laments, stories, croaking frogs, the wind and the special silence of nights at the Las Anas reservoir. Luis and Wade have arrived at this music with their ears, listening within and without; playing the sounds of Aragon, transforming them as they transform themselves, as music and musicians, in order to offer you, the listeners, these pieces to hear and enjoy."-
