This work features traditional instruments (ie: cello, viola, pump organ, piano, military surplus oscillator), instruments of original design (ie: Kestrel 920, Blue Bloo, Electric Podium), found instruments (ie: US/Mexico border wall, saguaro bones, wire fences, rocks, radio tower cables) and various field recordings from Baja Arizona.
Glenn Weyant is a founding member and innovator of the early 21st Century Border Wall Deconstructionist Movement. Using a cello bow and implements of mass percussion to "play" the Sonoran Desert's border walls, militarized infrastructure and assorted ephemera, both natural and human, Weyant's internationally recognized work has been featured in films, books, photographs and audio recordings. In 2012 Weyant's performance of John Cage's 4"33 upon the Nogales Wall was included in the New York Public Library/John Cage Trust retrospective: John Cage unbound A Living Archive.
