Bringing melody to a netherworld

May 29th, 2013

At first glance, this dim, grimy space beneath the rumbling Brooklyn-Queens Expressway seems like a weird home for a grand piano from the Sing for Hope project (which wasn't yet underway when I took this photo, hence the bolted-down tarp and locked-up keyboard), but it starts to feel more fitting when you realize the piano is parked next to Soundwaves, a muralized visual representation of nine local pianists playing Beethoven's "Moonlight" Sonata.

    There were a total of 88 pianos representing the number of keys, i tried to visit as many as I can in one week and ended up with 25! It was great to see people of all ages gather around a piano in a public place, strangers bonding over music. It was fun!
