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 we have three cities signed up for 2015: first off is Florence, South Carolina which is taking place now until 3 May, closely followed by Greater Geneva in June and then in Canary Wharf later on in September. We are currently working with a number of potential partners for 2015 so new cities will be announced in due course – watch this space! Read More...

I travelled down for a mini tour from the Blue Mountains in Sydney with my folk/rock band Shadows at Play and had SO much fun playing, finding and appreciating all these surprise pianos I found. SO much so that the 12 I was able to get around to, I filmed multiple takes of a music film clip for my latest song under the name of 'Empty Fish Tank' which means I'll be able to post a video collage as well :D Thank you street pianos Melbourne, SO MUCH FUN! Please check out the music if you think the photo is groovy :P www.facebook.com/emptyfishtank Cheers, Anthony.
