There can never be too much music in the world, and in an effort to encourage more people to create music, the art experiment Play Me I’m Yours has invaded the streets of L.A.! Created in 2008 by Luke Jerram, PMIY sets up public pianos free for anyone to tinker with and take part in “spontaneous music making.”

A total of 30 pianos have been installed in locations all throughout Los Angeles. You can find these public pianos set up in the neighborhoods of Santa Monica, Culver City, Beverly Hills, Hollywood, West Hollywood, Downtown, South LA, Monterey Park, Pasadena, Glendale and Burbank.

The pianos were designed and decorated by artists in honor of Jeffrey Kahane’s 15th year at the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra and were brought in with help from the Orchestra, Hollywood Piano Co. and other local sponsors.

Anyone will be free to play after a inaugural performance from 30 pianists play Bach’s “The Well-Tempered Clavier” simultaneously at all locations!

The pianos will remain through May 3rd, and users are free to upload videos of them playing to the PMIY L.A. site. For a map to see all the locations of L.A.’s PMIY pianos, click here!
