Geneva's Play Me, I'm Yours 9th-20th of june 2011


Touring internationally since 2008, “Play Me, I’m Yours” (translated ” Jouez, Je Suis à Vous” in Geneva) is an artwork by artist Luke Jerram.

From 9th – 20th June 2011, 20 street pianos will be distributed across the streets of Geneva to mark the 20th anniversary of the Fete de la Musique.
Located in public parks, squares and lakeside locations, the pianos are available for any member of the public to play and enjoy.
If you are a musician, or even if you’ve never touched a musical instrument in your life, sit back and play, these twenty pianos are all yours!

This website was made for the public to post their comments, films and photos about the pianos. Whilst documenting each piano’s journey, the website will connect the pianos and their communities across the city.


20 pianos now out and and about in Geneva for all to play. Find their locations and upload your photos here: http://www.jouezjesuisavous.com/http://www.jouezjesuisavous.com/


(if you're a woman and were thinking it was about something else... I'm sorry )

Lovely idea....

You'll be surprised, these (or something similar) were in London a few years ago, and apart from being a bit out of tune I wasn't aware of any of them being broken or damaged on purpose.

Now as I'm a bit of fan of the old joanna, and I can tinkle a few ivories as well as ebonies, there was many a (shame to admit it), but drunken sing song, I remember one at Liverpool St, and I must have been there for at least an hour with all sorts of people singing a very very very long version of hey jude!

I hope the Singing Policemen will be there again this year. Rather amusing to hear them sing Cocaine and I shot the Sheriff!!
