My camera and I...
“Without music, life would be a mistake” ― Friedrich Nietzsche

Have you heard about the project “Play me, I’m yours”? My husband and I went around Melbourne in search of the different pianos and was in awe of the great talents we have, young and old alike. People just pulled up a seat and played the piano, which was very entertaining.

Touring internationally since 2008, Play Me, I’m Yours is an artwork by British artist Luke Jerram.  Reaching millions of people worldwide, more than 1,900 street pianos have been installed  in over 60 cities across the globe, from Tokyo to New York, bearing the simple instruction to ‘Play Me, I’m Yours’.

Located on streets, in public parks, markets and train stations the pianos are available for everyone to play and enjoy. Play Me, I’m Yours invites the public to engage with, activate and take ownership of their urban environment, and to share their love of music and the visual arts. Decorated by local artists and community groups, our street pianos create a place for exchange and an opportunity for people to connect.

The project will be live in Shanghai, China from 18 April – 2 June, Geneva, Switzerland from 13 – 30 June and Augsburg, Germany from 6 – 29 September 2019. There are also six new pianos available to play in Canary Wharf, London.

I am featuring this for Xingfumama’s Pull Up a Seat Challenge

Come and listen.

  1. Super fun post. I like the premise that people interact with the decorated pianos…I’ve seen things like pigs, nutcrackers and bears decorated for themes but this is the first time I’ve heard of one where the viewers can interact.
