Glenn Weyant is a sound sculptor, instrument designer, welder, baker, educator and journalist based in Tucson, Arizona. His instruments of original design include The Kestrel 920, Spokes and Sound, The Blu-Blu and The Nailed Board, all of which exploit, amplify and broadcast micro- vibrations created by bowing, plucking, strumming, drumming and instrument specific manipulation.
Weyant's work playing the US and Mexico border wall with a cello bow and implements of mass percussion (The Anta Project) has been downloaded by listeners in over 80 countries, has received national/local radio play in both The United States and Germany, and has been translated into five languages.
