The Tosso Variations is an audiovisual suite in five movements based on recordings of several free improvisations by Shingo Inao. Shingo plays his Tosso, a six-stringed sensor instrument of his own design. Each improvisation is performed with Shingo dressed in a different outfit. This series of pullovers are from The Story of Oswald 1848 – a collection created by designer Nicole Roscher for her fashion label Von Bardonitz. The Tosso Variations was originally exhibited as a five-channel video installation at the MU artspace in Eindhoven, Netherlands, curated by Angelique Spaninks. Supported by MU, Eindhoven. The Tosso Variations has been exhibited in a single-channel version at FILE Festival, São Paulo (2012) and in the Panorama screening program of CYNETART, Dresden (2012).
