For the next month, expect the sound of music to echo across Brisbane's public spaces — through the Brisbane Botanic Gardens  at Mt Coot-tha, King Street at Bowen Hills, Sunnybank Plaza, Fairfield Gardens, Brisbane Powerhouse and even the Shorncliffe Pier, just to name a few places. Melodic notes will ring out over Gasworks, Northey Street City Farm, Eagle Street Pier and the end of Logan Road at Woolloongabba as well. Yes, the list goes on.

In total, 20 pianos will be scattered around town, all as part of Play Me, I'm Yours. You might've heard of the international artwork before, given that it has been touring the globe since 2008. Over that time, it has placed more than 1900 street pianos in over 60 cities. Now, it's Brisbane's turn to join in the musical fun, all as part of this year's Queensland Music Festival.

If you come across an instrument between Friday, July 5 and Sunday, July 28, between the hours of 7am–10pm, the instructions are simple. Just start playing. It's free, and that's all you need to do.

Sticking with the concept initially devised by British artist Luke Jerram, each of the pianos has been artfully decorated — so you won't miss them.
