The Tosso Variations is an audiovisual suite in five movements. Recordings of Shingo Inao‘s free improvisations make up the raw material of the compositions. Inao plays his Tosso, a six-stringed sensor instrument of his own design. Inao performs each improvisation dressed in a different pullover. The pullovers are from Nicole Roscher’s Von Bardonitz collection The Story of Oswald 1848. The Tosso Variations premiered at MU Artspace (2012) as a five-channel video installation. Curated by Angelique Spaninks and supported by MU (Eindhoven, Netherlands). Single-channel version exhibitions: FILE Festival, São Paulo (2012), CYNETART Panorama, Dresden (2012).
