Pianos on State
Pianos on State is a collaborative and interactive musical experience in Santa Barbara. Coinciding with the 2013 New Noise Festival, Pianos on State took place October 10th through October 21st. This was the fourth annual event made possible by the collaborative efforts of the Santa Barbara Bowl, Notes for Notes, Santa Barbara Education Foundation, Santa Barbara Arts Collaborative, Santa Barbara County Arts Commission, Laura Inks, and New Noise. Each piano became its own piece of art as local Santa Barbara artists created unique looks. Pianos were available for musical exploration, impromptu play, and planned performances morning, afternoon and evening over two weekends (10am – 9pm per piano). Amateur and professional musicians alike were scheduled to perform and the public was invited to sit down and play during non-scheduled hours.
