Sydney Festival: Play me I'm Yours

As Jordan tinkled the ivories, a hound stood at a safe distance among the paperbarks and howled the accompaniment. All too soon, young Si-mon decided that he would have a turn. What a budding prodigy ...

A delightful South African family who happenstanced upon this piano which was installed in Centennial Park this morning: one of 30 scattered thoughout the metropolitan area for the duration of the Festival. Find out more here.

Play Me, I'm Yours! is a public piano project created by British artist Luke Jerram. It involves populating the streets of Parramatta and Sydney's CBD with 30 pianos, challenging preconceived notions of city living and enhancing our sense of community. Play Me, I’m Yours! grew from Luke’s observation of how we see the same people every day on our streets, around our workplaces and in our parks but rarely stop to say hello. Out of this came a plan to use music as a catalyst for strangers to talk and to connect with one another.

Looking at the map on the official site, there are another 3 pianos between my home and my work. Wu-hoo!

What a great idea! Pianos are so often stuck in a corner like a piece of furniture and never played. Makes me want to get a plane down and make a day of it going from piano to piano.

I think there's one somewhere near me that I must go and find later this week.

Jordan's photos are very cute. I like this idea of the "play me I'm yours!"

What a great idea for the Festival; a great theme and concept to get strangers mingling.

Now I would have known about this earlier if I'd read yours and Ann's blogs (I've been down the coast on 11kps dial-up!!) Pays to sticks around Sydney in January!
