Play me I’m yours

Marco me pasó la info sobre este proyecto alucinante:

Street pianos are appearing in cities across the world. Located in skate parks, industrial estates, laundrettes, precincts, bus shelters and train stations, outside pubs and football grounds, the pianos are for any member of the public to enjoy and claim ownership of.

Who plays them and how long they remain is up to each community. The pianos act as sculptural, musical, blank canvases that become a reflection of the communities they are embedded into. Many pianos are personalised and decorated.

Questioning the ownership and rules of public space 'Play Me I'm yours' is a provocation, inviting the public to engage with, activate and take ownership of their urban environment.

The first pianos appeared in March 2008 when 15 pianos were placed into the streets of Birmingham UK. This website - www.streetpianos.com - was made for the public to post their comments about the pianos and describe their use. The site has helped document each piano's journey whilst connecting the street pianos and their communities across the city.
