British Commuters Invited to Play Beethoven’s ‘Moonlight Sonata’ on a Piano at a Bus Stop

In August 2012, commuters were invited to help pianist Andy Jackson play Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata” at a bus station in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK. Each volunteer played a few notes of the song as Jackson accompanied (many of the volunteers had never touched a piano before). Each snippet was then edited together to form the full piece. The project was conceived by artist Anton Hecht and Andy Jackson. Hecht also directed and edited the video.
