Play me, I'm yours. | 月旦评

Touring internationally since 2008, Play Me, I’m Yours is an artwork by British artist Luke Jerram. Reaching over 10 million people worldwide, more than 1,900 street pianos have been installed as part of 75 presentations that took place in 60 cities across the globe, from London 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.

I like this idea so much. It is a wonderful way to let people access and enjoy music. Music is alive not the luxury antiques displaying in the museum, especially the classic music.

On last Friday the Pinao, Push and Play had the kickoff concert in courtyard of the Portland Art Museum. I brought kids there. Both of them were learning piano from a very strict piano teacher. He is very traditional and loyal to classic music. Some times I think kids might need a few other elements of music to keep their enthusiasm in practicing piano. That's why I brought them to this concert to feel the magic of music. Music could be so easy to access and not only a highbrow.

This is the sixth year that Portland organized this activity and Portland is the only city in northwest coast of America to hold this event. I am so thankful those organizers and those who donated pianos. Without them we couldn't have this wonderful music party.


I saw this picture from the street music official website of Portland.

I don't know in which year this picture was shot. All the pianos are amazing! It is a wonderful combination of Visual arts and music.

2018 kickoff concert

Those are 10 pianos which would be put in the city for public playing. We don't know where they will be. But I got last year piano distribution map in Portland. Maybe we can find some of them in the same places or maybe not.

My younger one tried the piano. 弟弟在钢琴上试手,我没想到录一段😅

His brother tried another one. 哥哥弹的时候,我录了一段,可惜没录完。

Just for fun!

"Play Me, I’m Yours"是英国艺术家Luke Jerram从2008年开始发起的一项艺术运动,该项运动结合了视觉艺术与音乐,让艺术走上街头,成为大众可以参与的活动。如今活动已经遍布世界60个城市,从伦敦到纽约,都可以看见她的身影。
