Touring internationally since 2008, Play Me, I’m Yours is an artwork by artist Luke Jerram.  When the project goes live in Melbourne, more than 1050 pianos will have been installed in 38 cities across the globe, bearing the simple invitation Play Me, I’m Yours.  The project has reached more than four million people worldwide.

Arts Centre Melbourne is presenting Play Me, I’m Yours in Melbourne from 9 – 27 January 2014 as part of the Betty Amsden Participation Program.  Decorated by local community artists and located in public spaces at Arts Centre Melbourne, the CBD and surrounds, 24 street pianos are available for anyone to play and enjoy.

This website has been set up for you to post and share your films, photos and stories about the pianos. While documenting each piano’s journey, it connects the pianos and their neighborhoods across the city and acts as a legacy for the artwork. Choose a piano location to post and/or view films, photos, and comments.

After the initiative of the “Piano City Milan” this new experience has led me to Melbourne to play in the midst of the people, and discovering that the piano has the ability to catalyze once again all music lovers!

Thanks to the citizens of Melbourne that have helped me to realize this latest video and all those who participated and who love music and especially the piano, the protagonist of the last two weeks in the entire city of Melbourne.

I’ll be waiting you on my channel to share your thoughts and opinions!
