Free Pianos Beg Londoners to be Played

Free Pianos - London

As part of this month’s Sing London festival, thirty pianos—part of artist Luke Jerram’s ‘Play Me, I’m Yours‘ traveling art tour—have been dispersed throughout the city, encouraging spontaneous pedestrian music. The instruments, either donated or purchased on the cheap off eBay, are free to use and available to anyone who wishes to take a seat—and each piano comes with a songbook of location-inspired music. The project even retains a bicycling piano tuner to keep each in shape. The concept has been executed in Sao Paulo and Sydney, and Jerram plans to repeat it in Bristol next.

What a wonderful idea. I hope Luke Jerram brings his project to the US sometime soon.

An interesting idea,

but,

I can't imagine that these pianos will sound great nor be a great inspiration, after being out in the London Fog for a day or two!

Reminds me of the painted cows exhibition, or something similar.

I wouldn't worry about the fog. It's the rain!

I do wish I lived closer to London as I would really like to play some of them. Hope they don't get trashed by vandals. The benches will need to be screwed down as well or they will walk.
