    Eight pianos, nine musicians, four cameras and one dog. For two weeks, the 'Play Me, I'm Yours' event inspired choirs, ballerinas, pianists and poets to tickle the ivories at fifteen piano hotspots in parks and streets across the city of Cambridge. Nine students from the University's Faculty of Music volunteered, each lending their own particular playing style, which is reflected in the video. In order to maintain a level of artistic control, the volunteers were asked to memorise the same chord progression and play along to a beat played off an MP3 player. Playing in whatever style they felt most comfortable, the pianists followed the same tempo allowing for more than one recording to be played simultaneously, creating the illusion of a musical collaboration.
