The film is based on the novel LISTEN TO THE UNIVERSE by Riku Onda which received both two prestigious literary awards in Japan (the Naoki Prize and Booksellers’ Award) for the first time in history. Set in the world of an international piano competition, it describes challenge by four young pianists striving for worldwide performers, as well as their talent, destiny, and growth.
In the music performance scenes by one of the main characters played by Win Morisaki, a dual-screen E-paper device, GVIDO by our group company GVIDO MUSIC was implemented as the music score, which led to our decision to sponsor the film. Please see the following for details of the film and GVIDO.
