Here's what happens when you are in Seattle, just walking down the street... and all of the sudden there's this funky piano in the shape of a Viking boat ("Skíðblaðnir") in one of the parks. I couldn't help it but play a few songs! It turned into a quick impromptu improvisation based on three Serbian traditional folk songs: "Gusta mi magla padnala", "Vodicanka kolo" and "Ajde Jano".
Too bad, the pedals on the piano were broken so even though it was fun, playing the piano felt like driving on the highway with a flat tire. By the way, that's the water fountains behind me that's heard throughout the video.
This piano is one of 20+ pianos that are placed in various Seattle's parks every summer as part of the "Pianos in the Parks" program.

------- Here's some info on the piano and the artists who turned it into the "Viking boat": "Skíðblaðnir Artist: Kate Rose Johnson and Scott Johnson What a wonderful time we live in, when we can have at our disposal a piano with which to tell you a story! This tale begins where all stories do, with the human exploration for the right place to safely house their heart and the hearts of those they love. Sound and visual art have been intertwined in the story-telling process since that first charcoal sketch on a cave wall. This particular piano is a historical vessel; representing the way culture and music travels over land and sea to foreign soil, perhaps awakening a young mind or stirring memories in an aged one. When you sit at this piano bench, you may feel the sense loss and the thrill of adventure in leaving the fjords of Scandinavia to find Golden Gardens and an Emerald City." (from: www.pianosintheparks.com).

Playing the Kawai Baby Grand Piano at the PDX Portland International Airport...
Just as I sat at the piano, my friend and musician Gerardo Calderon recorded this little improvisation… a musical collage... a winding river of sound flowing over some mixed meters… 7/8, 4/4, 12/8, 15/8 and so on … Gracias, Gerardo!
