Following the short film on sound sculptor Nik NowakSennhesier and Spotify share with us the inspiring work of Pedro Reyes, a Mexican artist who turns violent bangs into musical clangs. As one of the 100 creatives to be showcased for their MOMENTUM campaign, Reyes’s “momentum” is seen in his ongoing fight against gun violence. With the realization that “sound reveals the true nature of things,” Reyes picks up where he left off by reversing the fear that weapons produce. Using guns as the building blocks of his handmade instruments, Reyes creatively transforms violent objects into facilitators of happiness. To see his latest audiovisual exhibition, watch the short film below and head over to Momentum’s YouTube channel to see more of the campaign’s inspiring sound stories.
