Pablo Peregrina

At the age of seven I first listened and learned Beatles songs in Spanish. My influences were the group “Los Apson” known as the Mexican Beatles, and my older brother who was  a drummer.  I remember begging my mother to let me wear my Beatles boots for my first Holy Communion. She said “NO! are you out of your mind?” The night before I kept staring at my boots trying to figure out a plan to wear them to church.  On that special day I snuck back into the my bedroom, put them on , got in the car before being caught by one of my five sisters, and was sent back to change shoes.  I felt special because I was a lefty. Nothing else mattered at that moment.

Glenn Weyant

A Tucson-based sound activist working with traditional and improvised instruments for more than four decades. Over the past two decades Weyant's sound work has been primarily focused on using a cello bow and implements of mass percussion to “play” the Sonoran Desert’s assorted ephemera, both natural and human. His sound work has been been featured internationally in films, books, photographs, audio recordings and sound installations. Weyant's most recent work is a three part suite composed entirely from City of Tucson field recordings titled: The Sonorous Desert City Project. In 2012 Weyant’s performance of John Cage’s 4' 33" performed upon the Nogales Border Wall was included in the New York Public Library/John Cage Trust retrospective: John Cage unbound A Living Archive. http://www.sonicanta.com/.
