For some time, music has been steadily becoming a major component of Fusebox, and that continues with this year's debut of the Free Range Music Series, offering concerts in nontraditional spaces. The kickoff with Mother Falcon and 100 string players inside the Seaholm Power Plant has passed, but you can still catch Portland, Ore., jazz quintet Blue Cranes performing at one of the "Play Me, I'm Yours" public piano project sites. Golden Hornet Project masterminds Peter Stopschinski and Graham Reynolds will bring "Play Me, I'm Yours" to a close with a Free Range concert involving five pianos positioned on the spiral ramp at the north end of the Pfluger Pedestrian Bridge.
