Touring internationally since 2008, Play Me, I’m Yours is an artwork by British artist Luke Jerram. Reaching over six million people worldwide – more than 1,300 pianos have already been installed in 45 cities across the globe, from New York to London, bearing the simple instruction ‘Play Me, I’m Yours’.
Located in public parks, bus shelters and train stations, markets and even on ferries the pianos are available for any member of the public to play and enjoy. Who plays them and how long they remain on the streets is up to each community. Many pianos are personalised and decorated by artists or the local community. By creating a place of exchange Play Me, I’m Yours invites the public to engage with, activate and take ownership of their urban environment.
We are delighted to announce that our first city signed up for 2015 is Florence, South Carolina, which will be taking place in April. We are currently working with a number of potential partners for 2015 and new cities will be announced in due course – watch this space! Read More...

It was 2am on the Princes Street Bridge Melbourne, Michael Cooper and friends are hanging out. Are they there because they missed the last train home? I can't remember. What I do remember is Michael relaxed ,forgetting I was filming him,meanwhile creating these delightful melodies you can now hear.
