    Just a reminder - there is beauty, music, goodness, EXPRESSION everywhere - and in every person- we just donโ€™t get to see that moment - at least not until these pianos come out and we get a few more chances to catch things we wouldnโ€™t otherwise see/hear. Thanks to @brushfireheart.art for capturing this moment of sweetness ๐ŸŽฅ๐ŸŽถโœจ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #pleaseplayme #playme #publicpiano #klutcho #newplanfuckit #time #now #cigarettebreak #expression #piano #pianist #art #design #love #spinet #paintedpiano #community #collaboration #artandsocialpractice #pianopushplay #keys #88 #gold #allgoldallgood #nportland #portland #oregon #streetpianosmelbourne

    I know you know about these pianos: dotted across the city in the summertime, just waiting for you to take a seat and make that music so sweet. They are - all 10 of them - out there now. And this year thereโ€™s a little something extra special: a Passport. A place for you to dream and note-take and which serves as your guide to collecting all 10 stamps (tucked inside the piano next to the sanitizer!) These Passports are my small contribution to a very large project - I got to act as Copyeditor, a total joy of a task! Copyediting is like the final polish of a gem, really buffing it up and making it sparkle. Thank you Megan for trusting me and inviting me to play ๐Ÿ’— To all of YOU - get yourself out there to a piano! Everyone is invited. August only. @pianopushplay #pianopushplay #pleaseplayme #community #music #soulofthecity #makemusic #makefriends #outdoorconcert #localart #supportlocalartists #portland #writerlife #copyeditor #finalpolish #wordsparkle ๐Ÿ“ท @hellomegandiana

    ADX hosted four artists bringing new life to awesome musical devices for @pianopushplay . This is just one of the benefits of having a 14 thousand foot makers space... sometimes all you need is a little place to be messy. It was amazing to see each unique approach come to fruition. โ€œGirl powerโ€, BLM, the human countenance gone wild, and artistic expression all live here. The work is radical and we feel fortunate to be a part of it. This year for the first time you can donate to the experience and receive a PPP Pasport. This thing is so cool. Designed by Joe Mousey and printed by Scout Books. It looks and feels great. I have two stamps already...go to @Pianopushplay for the deets. Thank you to @pianopushplay , @thedailydaren , @eyedrawp , @klutcho , @girlpowerillustrations , and @joemousey . #pianopushplay #pdxpiano #pdxartists #pdxmakers #makeportlandbeautiful #artheals #piano #pdxcityart #worldgallery #creativepower #dreamfactory

    @vineandthistle and I just completed this dream project for @pianopushplay! We spent the month of July working on it in our studio @nurtureartistcollective. @momojena shared her poetry skills and came up with the beautiful words. Alicia and I designed the illustrations together using @procreate and took turns drawing each part to collaborate. To get the art on the piano, we used a small projector, chalk and then painted. The piano was placed out in the world at @topazfarm on Sauvie Island and will be there all month to enjoy! Check out my stories to see all of the pianos painted by other talented artists in Portland! We want to live in a world where we can fully express our truth, be heard, and also deeply listen to one another. We believe in the power that art & music have to shift the very frequencies of our souls, to help us collectively rise into a better tomorrow. Words by @momojojena. Swipe to see a video that Alicia took that shares a look at all the sides. Iโ€™ve also included a few process photos. And putting this out into the world, we enjoyed working together so much, weโ€™re now dreaming of a mural together using these same color paints ๐Ÿ’ซ #pianopushplay #pdxartist #portland #sauvieisland #portlandartist #nurtureartistcollective #paintedpiano #piano #musician #pdxmusic #streetart #publicart #create #carveouttimeforart #millerpaint #topazfarm #womenwhoillustrate #patterndesign #licensingartist @millerpaint

    Went piano hunting this weekend. Im absolutely hyped about piano practice again since I don't have access to a real piano. Found 4 of them by #pianopushplay , including one in Topaz Farms by some goats and chickens.

    Pardon the frizzy hair, itโ€™s humid today. The pianos are back out and Iโ€™m so excited about it! About 4 years ago, I came to Portland for the first time and played a piano out on waterfront park. It is still one of my favourite experiences Iโ€™ve had within the city and itโ€™s the one that convinced me that Iโ€™m moving here someday. Now Iโ€™m here in a beautiful apartment with my lovely boyfriend, our adorable dog, and our cute little cat (not pictured). It was amazing to be able to play a piano again. Now I just need to save up enough money to live in a place where I can have a real piano! #pleaseplayme

    Another favorite journey to revisit - this incredible๐ŸŒฒ #nationalparks themed piano was created for us back in 2015 - by a sweet team of very crafty @aedemarco @scrappers for @northagency - it began itโ€™s life at Portland City Hall - giving people the ultimate excuse to spend more time in their atrium (I even gave a few lunchtime concerts) - then it moved onto Columbia Park - in the PERFECT MAGICAL ๐Ÿง™โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿง™๐Ÿป spot across from the cottage - and it now rests permanently at the @worldforestrycenter and gets wheeled out each summer for little rugrats to play with ๐ŸŽน๐ŸŽต๐Ÿ’ฏ . . . . . . . . . #pianopushplay #pleaseplayme #playme #paintedpiano #portlandpiano #publicpiano #bear #wood #forest #waterfall #piano #pianos #pianist #portland #oregon #pdx #artandsocialpractice #community #collaboration #love #music #now #artmatters

    Thanks @jeffmendenhallfilm for this sweet sweet capture and memory from last summer - this piano came together in one day ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿผโ€ผ๏ธ- a month before the start of our season a friend shared with me the work of a French ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท artist who was in town painting some murals and opening up an art show - I loved the work and reached out to @lucas_beaufort to see if he๐ † be up for painting a piano for us - he only had 1 free day before he left the states and luckily - our buds at @adxportland gave us the space for him to paint it in the one day before he left town ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐ŸŽจ๐ŸŽน- it was then placed in one of our favorite spots - Cathedral Park out in St. Johnโ€™s - and now - almost a year later this photo came into our lives - Magic all around โœจ - . . . . . . . . . . #piano #portland #stjohns #pleaseplayme #playme #portlandpiano #publicpiano #paintedpiano #blackandwhite #88keys #pianist #pianos #pianopushplay #filmphotography #love #music #oregon #pdx #portland #wewillbeback

    This time last year - we had just left a REALLY big โŒ stage having told our story and shared why we are still pushing pianos to street corners 7 years later - because we believe and KNOW - that people who would have never interacted or spoken to each other - DO- because the piano is there - because someone sits down to play - because another person stops in their tracks to listen - and say thank you - or right on ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿผor sit down and play themselves - and maybe a duet spontaneously strikes up ?! - who knows the exact order of events - but this project, these pianos- break down the barriers between people in our community and we will continue to make it happen ๐ŸŽน๐ŸŽต๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿค . . . . . . . #pianopushplay #tedtalk #publicpiano #portlandpiano #portland #oregon #pdx #tedxportland #cymaspace #founder #creator #imagine #red #xmarksthespot

    Iโ€™ve been getting lots of questions about where the pianos go after the summer ends โœจ I thought I would tell you the story of one piano to help illuminate how differently each one ends up - where it goes- what new life it ends up in โœจ This sweet blue beast was painted by amazing muralist duo @rather_severe at an event with @ffttnw at the @portlandartmuseum in 2015 โœจ It then spent a couple weeks hanging out in downtown Portland along our bus mall โœจ I then met the fella behind the magical @1234housepdx and we figured out that it would be the perfect spot for it to live on โœจ as you can see if fits right into the blue living room where they host striped down house shows like the one I caught this weekend - โœจ Mesmerizing @sama_dams played us many a song on it and it was such so lovely to see this buddy being used ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ played ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ loved ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ and living on ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ Ps - if you like what you hear ๐Ÿ‘‚๐Ÿผ @sama_dams have a show this Thursday at @theliquorstorepdx #alwaysgototheshow . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #piano #pianopushplay #portlandpiano #publicpiano #streetpiano #composer #portland #oregon #muralist #creationstory #storyoforigin #pdx #pianist #collaboration #community #recordingartist #nonprofit #love #blue #pleaseplayme #playme #keys #pianist #music

    โ€œPiano.Push.Playโ€ is a neat, local outreach project where pianos are rescued, painted, and put around Portland on streets and in parks for people to play.

    A few more shots from the #pianopushplay kickoff 2019 - lucky no. 7 - who would have thought Iโ€™d be doing this thing for 7 years now โ‰๏ธ my dear friend Eric - photo numero uno - helps raise the incredible support to help me put this installation on every year- and with complete freedom to make it happen how I want to ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿผโœจ For those of you that may not know how this project began - I came out of a bar in downtown PDX 8 years!! ago and came across a cellist on 13th and Burnside- instantly my friends and I were transported from regular walk home to magical summer evening dreamland - and I remember saying - I wish I could do that- play on the street on a REAL - and damn thatโ€™s a bit heavier then a cello - but months went on but I couldnโ€™t stop thinking about making one lil pop-up concert happen- biking one night I realized a piano store was only a few blocks away - I went in- made friends- And finally came out with this idea of a REAL piano in the midst of that urban chaos and to my surprise - @portlandpianocompany said- we like that idea - weโ€™ll mount a piano on a dolly for you - and when you want - you can push it up the street and play for people- and thus @pianopushplay was born - more on what happened the next summer soon ๐Ÿ“ธ by @carhenlo . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #piano #pianopushplay #portlandpiano #publicpiano #streetpiano #composer #portland #oregon #creationstory #storyoforigin #pdx #pianist #collaboration #community #recordingartist #nonprofit #kickoff #love #pleaseplayme #playme #keys #pianist #music

    Good life and bad life. With my album #templemoondesire coming out, there is a dichotomy in my emotional state. One that after more than 5 years working on this album says, I am so grateful for the time and energy of everyone I worked with to make this group of songs become a reality, but also a fear that maybe I have somehow lost some part of myself in the process of being so devoted to creating a record that only reflects me through the stories of others. I was thinking a lot about compassion while writing these songs, but within the Yin of compassion also lays the Yang of the urge for revenge. I set up this photo shoot with @corinnascottphotography because I wanted to illustrate the polarity of real life in music. The love and hate, joy and sadness. War and peace. โ›ฉ๐ŸŒ™๐Ÿ–ค I am so thankful to have been lucky enough to have worked with the #pdx producer @dcpollock as we constructed and deconstructed my ideas for songs. And then, as if a spirit was guiding us towards all the right people - we had the amazing opportunity to work with @lilysheers on vocal compositions and @honeywinemeade on horn composition. It felt so right, like this guiding force was bringing us all together, in a new age of #portland friendship and musical collaboration.๐ŸŒณ

    We worked at many studios, talked to many people, edited and re-edited, but this song is finally available to hear and the music video is ready to see.

    My song from #templemoondesire is up at surviving the golden age music blog. Our nation constantly sees tragedies perpetrated by police officers against people of color. I wrote this song not about a cop shooting a black man - but about what itโ€™s like to watch television, and every week see another murder committed by the police, and ignored by the corporate-media. I hope you all have a chance to see it. Special thanks to @dcpollock who produced the song and whole Temple Moon Desire record, @lilysheers who sang on it, and @novostiofficial for filming my music video and working with me and so many other helping to build a special community, and special thanks to @jodiebeechem for doing the art for it!

    I wrote this song, after about a full 3 years of seeing black men and black children in the United States shot down by police. Everyday was like another horrible tragedy. I felt so helpless. I wanted to write a song that spoke about these feelings and so for the next year @dcpollock and I got really serious in the Fortress Galaxy studios, we began by getting rid of most of the piano in this song, then we asked for some help writing the female vocal parts from the genius songwriter @lilysheers - and thankfully she agreed. She really added a mesmerizing voice to the story of my song. Not to even mention the amazing horns that Anthony Meade @honeywinemeade laid down so cosmically! After that I brought the song to @novostiofficial and him and I spent about another full year with actors and other film-artists making a music video : short film whose point is to really make the audience THINK. I really hope this music video makes your stomach churn the way it does to me. The video is coming soon and I canโ€™t wait to share it with you all. : : : : : : : : : #orangecup #templemoondesire #matthewheller #matthewhellerandtheclever #matthewhellermusic #heller #hellermusic #songwriter

    @cymaspace is a really rad performance space here in Portland, dedicated to making music, dance, radio, film and art more accessible to the deaf and hard of hearing. I have worked on a few projects at @cymaspace and itโ€™s always been a blast and an inspiration. This is another one of the @pianopushplay ๐ŸŽน pianos that will be featured today at @tedxportland - this beauty was a joy to play imagineered by @mylesdebastion ๐Ÿ’กwho has some pretty awesome work out there involving light and touch and motion, at @portlandchildrensmuseum and also @omsi - I think as well. This was one of the first pianos Jov Luke @novostiofficial ๐ŸŽฅ๐ŸŽฌ filmed Ian Christensen๐ŸŽท and I jamming at. What an awesome way to start the warm season!

    The first reason I like ADX Portland is because theyโ€™ve created a safe place to work on really cool stuff. Itโ€™s like a hive of creative folks who are all happy to share their knowledge with each other. What a cool work environment! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ @adxportland ๐Ÿ›  The other reason I love @adxportland ๐Ÿ›  is because they are always invested in the arts and music. Like the time we got to show up and jam out on one of the beautiful, eccentric @pianopushplay ๐ŸŽนpianos they plopped down, with the glorious sounds of of chop saws and table saws all being used safely. @pianopushplay ๐ŸŽน is going to be showing some of their pianos at @tedxportland ๐Ÿ—ฃ tomorrow, WOW!

    Do songs have the ability to change the world? That's a question I have been asking myself a lot over the last few years, while working on Temple Moon Desire. I'm still not sure. I really don't know, but one thing that has stood out to me during the making of this record is that, I've had so much help from musicians, artists, film-makers, songwriters, producers, photographers and so many others. So, even if my songs are not changing the issues of the world today, at least I am making friends and partners with fellow artists and workers. The community that came together in the building of Temple Moon Desire, has become a coalition of inspirational artists and thinkers, and very well, might just be more important than the songs themselves. I've met and learned from so many different people that I am eager to continue learning from and working with. I can't ask for much more than what my community and friends have given me, the gift of not going at it alone. Thank you all! ๐Ÿ–ค๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŽต : : : : : ๏ฟฝ๓œฝปy: Corinna Scott Photography @corinnascottphotography With @gorgeousgiggles490 & @lieblifts

    I have always felt like songwriting - and creating albums, records of songs, are like sharing the most intimate details of the songwriterโ€™s or bandโ€™s lives. The lyrics can say things that are super personal, or not, but the music that accompanies the lyrics can be even more telling. whether the song is dark, sad, angry, happy, uplifting, joyful, awkward, ...anything, but the music always adds this extra layer that says whether the lyrics are saying what they mean or not. I love that about songwriting. ๐Ÿ–คโค๏ธ๐Ÿ–ค๐ŸŽนโ›ฉ๐ŸŒ™๐ŸŽน๐Ÿ–คโค๏ธ๐Ÿ–ค : : : : : : : : : : : : : original ๏ฟฝ๓œพ‹y: Katie Summer @ktsummer (Cuts done by me, @matthewhellerpdx - hope thatโ€™s not evil..

    When we started working seriously on Temple Moon Desire, Aaron Swartz #aaronswartz had just committed suicide. He was a genius, an activist and an incredible intellectual. I wanted to write a song about how that made me feel. That song made it on the record, the song was titled, Back to BC. As the record progressed, I realized there were many more people I wanted to write songs for and about, people that had come into my life and out of my life. That is why I am so excited to share Temple Moon Desire with you all. Because I tried so hard to tell my story of what it has been like to watch the world and my world change all around me. I hope you enjoy the record and are able to peer into my way of thinking a little bit when you hear it. : : : : : ๏ฟฝ๓œฝปy: Corinnna Scott Photography @corinnascottphotography With @gorgeousgiggles490 & @lieblifts - #templemoondesire

    One of the most important reasons for me to release the songs on my record #templemoondesire was to elucidate my feelings about the United Stareโ€™s roll in the world. I did this by working with respected women and journalists from Afghanistan and asking people in my community what they thought about war. I recorded with as many people as I could find. We all talked about the songs and about what they made us feel. Itโ€™s been such a fun process, I canโ€™t wait to share Temple Moon Desire with you all. : : : : : ๏ฟฝ๓œพ‹y: Corinnna Scott Photography @corinnascottphotography with @lieblifts and @gorgeousgiggles490

We had dinner at Jakeโ€™s Crawfish, a coffee break at Stumptown, dessert at VooDoo and exposed the kids to all the quirks of PDX. #pdx #portland #portlandia #voodoodoughnuts #jakescrawfish @vaniavananina #pleaseplayme #pleaseplaymepiano #stumptown #stumptowncoffee #jakesfamouscrawfish #foodpyramid #northofwest #pacificnorthwest #summerintherain #therealhousewifeofseattle #summertravels

    I have so many pictures to share and stories to tell! Iโ€™ve been working super hard these past weeks, and today, one of my summer projects is finally complete: A piano painted with all the colors that live within me for Portlandโ€™s own @pianopushplay! Count on the fact that I will spam you with tons of process videos, pics and videos of people playing the piano! I need time to rest. My body is sore but my heart is happy. You can now visit the piano I painted at West Burnside and 13th Ave. Go touch it, go see it. But above all, please play it ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŽถ #vaniavananinacreatesmagic #pianopushplay #vaniavananina . . . #portland #summerinthecity #summerinportland #colorsofportlandia #downtownportland #pdx #portlandoregon #keepportlandweird #pianopushplaypdx #vaniavananinaart #vaniavananinapatterns #vaniavananinapaints #publicart #pdxart #portlandart #streetart #portlandstreetart #travelportland #exploreportland #portlandpianos #patterns #patternfever #portlandartmuseum #pianosinthecity #mexicanoscreativos #mexicanosenelmundo #rainbowpiano

    6 years ago I did this crazy thing with my friends- push a piano to a street corner in downtown Portland and play music for those walking by - now here I am years later and have the support of incredible people, artists and institutions in my city that help me create an ever-changing, ever-growing community of people who love the magic that happens when you come across a big beautiful piano outside in unexpected places. I would love to see you at the @portlandartmuseum in a few short weeks to welcome this seasons crop of painted pianos to the streets and parks of Portland - oh- and Iโ€™ll be singing a song too! ๐ŸŽจ๐ŸŽน๐ŸŽ‰โœจ

    A few words on Jazz/Music from Mr #MLKjr - โ€œMuch of the power of our Freedom Movement in the United States has come from this music. It has strengthened us with its sweet rhythms when courage began to fail. It has calmed us with its rich harmonies when spirits were down......When life itself offers no order and meaning, the musician creates an order and meaning from the sounds of the earth which flow through his instrumentโ€ โœจโœจโœจ
