Pianodrome is a radical re-imagining of the piano in today’s throw-away society. We create unique playable, community-centered sculptures made entirely from otherwise disused pianos. Pianodrome CIC was set up in 2017 by bandmates Tim Vincent-Smith and Matthew Wright to build the world’s first amphitheater made entirely from upcycled pianos and we have grown to have two full Pianodrome’s in Edinburgh, as well as a piano adoption scheme and sculpture work commissioned across the UK.
Pianodrome have presented festival programmes at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2018, 2019 and, most recently, 2022 at the Old Royal High in Edinburgh, selling almost 10,000 tickets to just under 250 performances and attracting critical acclaim and international recognition.
The Pianodrome has since become an iconic symbol of community and cultural resilience in Scotland's capital. Charlotte SHOUT!'s Pianodrome is the first to be built in America!
