Mexican artist Pedro Reyes has given a second life to used military arms by transforming them into musical instruments. In just two weeks’ time, he has worked with six other musicians to alter confiscated armaments into a functional 50-piece orchestra. You can watch the video within post to see the making of a guitar, flute, drum kit, and more.
