Photograph of the Day – Play me I’m Yours

One of 10 pianos left around the city centre as part of artist Luke Jerram's world wide project Play me I'm Yours.

The 10 pianos have been painted/pimped/decorated by local artists. This lovely(whimsical)  project is part of Craft NI craft month. In the last 2 days i have rounded corners to hear unexpected music including a group of around 10 or so singing along to contemporary songs as one of their friends played the tunes (very very well it has to be said).

Pianos are located at City Hall, Commercial Court (Duke of York), Cotton Court, Cornmarket sculpture (monstrosity), Rosemary St (First Non Subscribing Presbyterian Church), Linenhall Library entrance, North Street (see photograph), St.Annes Square, Royal Ave (beside The Reform Club) and Writers Square.

  • Brilliant initiative. Hope you add pictures of all the other pianos in the project being played.

    It would be great to get some video blogging of al fresco playing around Belfast. Anyone up for it? Sounds like a job for Alan in Belfast (cue Superman music)!

    In the interests of accuracy, I will just note that the church on Rosemary Street is the First Presbyterian, not the Free Presbyterian, as it is described above.

    Slight difference in description, world of difference in outlook!

    Rosemary Street is a non subscribing Church, not Free Presbyterian.

  • Yup i’m going to try and make a little ttv montage of the 10 pianos…so far i have 3 of them but theres another 10 or so days to go.
    I’ll change that little error now
