A WALL NO MORE

On November 12, 2010 the U.S. Mexico Border Wall, perhaps the world's most expensive and expansive instrument, was played by approximately 20 people including a class of 16 students from Northern Arizona University.

The event was also observed and recorded by a local television reporter and an international author.

This was the first time an orchestra of so many skilled musicians has ever performed an original score composed exclusively for and upon the border wall.

This work took place following a discussion about the history of wall and fence playing, beginning with the ground breaking work of a turn-of-the-century Texas cowboy who was said to have carried a fiddle bow in his saddle to play wire fences for his cattle through The Anta Project today.
