Music for Lithophones, Pedro Reyes

    Documents:

This video shows the result of the collaboration between Mexican artist @_pedro_reyes_ and the Mexican percussion ensemble Tambuco during Reyes’ fourth individual exhibition at LABOR, “Music for Litophones” in 2018.
For this project,Tambuco made a series of presentations at LABOR in which they played a composition made expressly by Ricardo Gallardo, completing the co-creative process of these works, coming to life with sound and generating a musical discourse. It is not the first time that Pedro Reyes makes musical sculptures made with unexpected materials, as is the case of “Disarm” (2012), where he transformed firearms into instruments, or “Satori” (2016) where he worked with Balinese gongs percussed by mechanized drumsticks. These two slopes; the sculpture in stone and the production of instruments, converge in this exploration of the lithophones.
