Instruments Of Original Design

For most of his life Glenn Weyant has been playing the world, building instruments of original design and/or modifying traditional instruments in nontraditional ways.

With each instrument the goal has been to deconstruct collective notions about is what sound, music, noise and an instrument via experimentation, practice, improvisation and composition.

In recent years The Kestrel 920 has received global attention for both the ideas it suggests and the the sound it produces. Other  instruments of original design include: The Nailed Board, The Electric Ferris Box and The BluBlew .

In 2010 many of these instruments were on display at The Museum of Contemporary Art in Tucson for the installation of Noise Where Prohibited.
