As part of a three-week-long art installation by UK's Luke Jerram, 30 decorated pianos have been placed all over Los Angeles, and are yours for the playing.

"Play Me, I'm Yours," officially launched at noon Thursday, as each of the pianos got a co-ordinated ivory tickling from 30 designated pianists simultaneously performing preludes from Bach's "The Well-Tempered Clavier."

But from now until May 3, you can have a seat and bang out your best (or worst) from "Chopsticks" to Chopin.

We gathered up some images from yesterday, and a couple of videos, of the "Play Me I'm Yours" pianos.
