Pianist Tsujii Nobuyuki says the theme song to Sho Sakurai’s upcoming movie “神様のカルテ (Kami-sama no Karute)” was inspired by it’s producers and cast, reports Sankei Sports on April 15.

Nobuyuki rose to fame after becoming the first blind pianist to win the Val Cliburn International Piano Competition in 2009.  This is the first time he has worked on creating music for a feature film.

The movie centres on the human drama at a regional hospital where Sho Sakurai’s character works, supported by his wife, played by Aoi Miyazaki.

It has been reported Nobuyuki composed the theme song after reading the braille novel the movie is based on and meeting the cast and staff.

“My inspiration for this piece came from the words I heard from the director and cast members, and the mood around the set when I visited them during filming,” said Nobuyuki.

The soundtrack featuring the pianist’s piece will be released on July 27.
