The Anta Project is a series of recordings made in 2006, by playing the border walls and assorted ephemera found along the U.S./Mexico border near Nogales, Arizona.

The roughly 10 hours of recordings were then blended in a multi-track laptop environment to create a single sonic collage.

The instruments chosen for this project were objects with political and metaphorical symbolism found during my desert journey.

By turning the three-mile long Nogales steel wall that separates the U.S. from Mexico into a sprawling electro-acoustic instrument, my goal was to deconstruct its purpose and sonically prod the listener into a line of inquiry:

What is it I am hearing?

Why do these things exist?

Who is kept in and who is kept out?

Instead of being an implement of division, the wall becomes an instrument of creation with the power to unite.
