The work was created with commuters and passers-by from the Haymarket Bus Station in Newcastle UK. Most of the participants are non players, many had never touched a piano before, we just convinced them to donate a note or two. Thanks to all who participated. The work was funded by The Arts Council of England, and Nexus through their Art On Transport cheme, with support in kind from FACT Services Liverpool and the distribution of the work through the artplayer http://www.artplayer.tv/. A special thanks to Tyneside Piano Company for agreeing to install a mini grande in the bus station. It was a great day, even though I was really worried how it would go. I was amazed excited people were to not only get involved but also to chat. Thanks to everyone and especially the pinaist Andy Jackson of the Cobwebs orchestra
A companion work, made in Cardiff..'Come Play Satie With Me' can be viewed here http://www.artplayer.tv/video/530/pla...
