Given the chance, would you play this gorgeous piano left out in the center of a public space? I bet you would; I wouldn’t, ’cause I don’t know how to play. But I’d join you in a jam with my drum-set or electric guitar, that’s for sure! Luke Jarram is a British artist responsible for adding a number of pianos to public spaces, all in hopes of bringing people together.
Luke started his project, “Play me, I’m yours” in Birmingham, UK, back in 2008. The project began with the addition of 15 pianos dispersed throughout the city for a period of three weeks. Immediately his project proved a hit success, with over 140,000 people playing the pianos or enjoying listening to others play.
So, what’s it gonna be: Jazz, Pop, or simply funky improvisations on the piano?
