Musical Instruments Made From Weapons By Pedro Reyes

Artist Pedro Reyes has done just that in his project Imagine, refashioning revolvers, shot-guns, machine-guns, and other weapons into musical instruments. It’s made all the more pertinent because the weapons were taken from the Mexican drug wars, donated to the artist by the government instead of being buried.

In total him and 6 musicians used 6,700 destroyed weapons and turned them into 50 different instruments, from percussion to wind, and string. The results are slightly sinister instruments that look like they’ve come from some kind of post-apocalyptic future, where guns are the only thing left in the world.
