    For nearly 300 years, the piano has enriched our lives with its expressive sounds, becoming an integral part of our music culture. Roland has been at the forefront of piano innovation since the release of their first all-electronic piano in 1973.

    And now, they are preparing to take another leap forward in digital piano design and technology — free from traditional forms and sounds. In collaboration with forward-thinking designers and artists, they are launching the Roland Digital Piano Design Awards to push the boundaries and to explore the future of digital pianos.

    Based on the theme "Unleash", they are looking for a digital piano concept that moves beyond tradition and unleashes a new style and sensibility for the instrument.
