Pedro Reyes Adds Art and a Rifle Becomes a Guitar

DISARM by Pedro Reyes is a collection of nine musical instruments created from dismantled shotguns, machine guns and pistols. Weapons once used to take lives are now used to make music. Played by musicians from Mexico City to London Town, they strum, hum, rap, ring and swing. Their song is a requiem to lives lost and an anthem for a world without weapons. Their next gig is in Atlanta at Flux Night 2015: Dream.
