PLAYER PIANO is a “headphones-recommended” film experience. This teaser highlights a carefully crafted sound experience that let's the audience experience the chaos and wonder of a man who, after a car accident, begins to hears broken strains of music as he touches the world around him. Based on a true neurological disorder call Acquired Savant Syndrome, this 3-minute short is a exhilarating audio-visual journey.
