My name is Pedro Reyes and what I do is mainly sculpture. Disarm is a project . . . It is a set of musical instruments made out of destroyed weapons.

To make a guitar or to make a violin or to make a drum set we were working very much like cavemen. You know blowing and scratching and banging these pieces of metal, trying to figure out how to make sound with them.
It is very important to train our capacity to play, to be a little bit foolish. I am not a musician. I often invite musicians to create compositions, which is super exciting because it means that every time that they play it is a new thing.

The best thing is when when you don’t know when a project continues to bring surprises.
