Serious business:

Ban-Assault-Instruments

hahah nice.  I especially like this comment from reddit by MiniBandGeek:

First they came for the bullhorns, and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a director.
Then they came for the drumline, and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a percussionist.
Then they came for the winds, and there was no one left to speak for me.

Thoughts?

Mexican artist Pedro Reyes attempts to shock and awe by using guns as a medium:

Imagine is a set of 50 musical instruments fabricated out of destroyed weapons – revolvers, shotguns, machineguns, etc. This work is a progression of Palas por Pistolas (2008), where 1527 weapons were melted and made into the same number of shovels to plant 1527 trees.

A group of 6 musicians worked for 2 weeks shoulder-to-shoulder turning these agents of death into instruments of life.

LOL agents of death!  I’ve got to admit those guitars look and sound really badass.  A shame those weapons were ever destroyed in the first place though.

More pictures and information over at Pedro Reyes’ website.

Thoughts?
