Ever found yourself on an early morning stroll near a large body of water (something harbour-like), blinking into the early morning brightness while eating early Easter Jebus buns and thought to yourself, "man, I could so do with a piano right now"?
Me too! And on Thursday I was in luck as 30 pianos have been deposited around the city as part of the Sydney Festival. In the middle of a big stretch of grass, between the Museum of Contemporary Art and the harbour, sat this little puppy, soaking up the sun waiting for its first play of the day.
The pianos are the very un-evil brainchild of British artist Luke Jerram whose idea is to quite literally bring people together through music. The pianos have found their way onto a construction site and a ferry, into a library, a cafe and a tattoo parlour. You can check out the shenanigans here.
Thursday afternoon I went for a swim at the pool down the road... yep, there was a piano there too. Noice.
