LONDON, ENGLAND - MARCH 26: An automated musical instrument made from recycled gun parts is shown at Pedro Reyes' exhibition at the Lisson Gallery on March 26, 2013 in London, England. Mexican artist Pedro Reyes received 6,700 destroyed weapons from the Mexican government from which he sculpted two groups of instruments. The first, a series titled Imagine, is an orchestra of fifty instruments, from flutes to string and percussion instruments, designed to be played live. The second, Disarm, is an installation of mechanical musical instruments, which can either be automated or played live by an individual operator using a laptop computer or midi keyboard.
