The Pianodrome at Leith Theatre
RESONATOR festival | 4 – 8 Dec 2019
The Pianodrome is a 100-seater amphitheatre constructed from over 50 discarded pianos.
This picture was taken by Chris Scott during a concert by the Hebrides Ensemble at our most recent and most grand installation yet in the Leith Theatre during November/December 2019.
The Pianodrome and the Leith Theatre have so much in common it was as if they were made for each other. They ‘resonate’. The excellent natural accoustic of Leith Theatre’s main auditorium added to the Pianodrome’s sound enhancing properties and our five embedded playable pianos made for a spectacular surround sound experience that was immersive, engaging, surprising and constantly changing.
Thank you Leith Theatre Trust!

Pianodrome is a radical re-imagining of what the piano is and can be in today’s throw-away culture
