Play Me, I'm Yours

Mesa, Arizona: 2016

Touring internationally since 2008, Play Me, I’m Yours is an artwork by British artist Luke Jerram.  More than 1400 pianos have now been installed in 50 cities across the globe, from London to Lima, bearing the simple invitation Play Me, I’m Yours, and the project has already reached more than eight million people worldwide.

Mesa Arts Center presented Play Me, I’m Yours from March 1 until April 9 2016, as part of the celebrations of a major milestone: 10 years at their beautiful location in Downtown Mesa, AZ.  24 playable and artistically enhanced pianos were featured, in Downtown Mesa and at other satellite locations throughout the city. Most of the pianos have been removed and will be auctioned or donated to charity, but a few are still available to play for the next few weeks.

This website has been set up for you to post and share your films, photos and stories about the pianos. Whilst documenting each piano’s journey, it connects the pianos and their communities across the city and acts as a legacy for the artwork. Click on a piano location to post and/or view films, photos, and comments on this website. The Twitter hashtag for the project is #streetpianosmesa.

David, 16, playing his most recent Chopin piece on the street piano at the Phoenix Mesa Gateway Airport in Arizona. We did a lot of recordings on this piano - liked the piano and it was a great location! Visit http://streetpianos.com/mesa2016/ to see all the Mesa Street Pianos. Also, check out his George Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue" performed on stage when he was 15 at https://youtu.be/6jWClfUKHK8

Passing through Mesa Arizona last week to check out the remaining street pianos. I thought this cat inspired piano was really cool. Just playing a little blues improv before heading to Sedona Arizona. Happy Listening! www.ericsanderspiano.com

To: fed up Ha, so funny! It probably wasn't a bus full of people - more likely an airplane, or ten, full of people! Sad, but I don't think you considered the fact that Phoenix Mesa Gateway Airport is the SPONSOR of this piano - and most likely your EMPLOYER. I believe the Gateway Airport is probably all about service - and happy customers. Are you? We saw a lot of happy travelers enjoying the piano and the music. Perhaps you need a different job. Or a different attitude towards your job - and life. Just sayin :) On the day when my son played, there were those who worked at the airport that were part of the audience, enjoying the music and clapping afterwards. Perhaps my son could have your salary, make happy customers (and workers) and play the piano all day! Just sayin :)
