The passion for the arts and technology allowed Simone Cossignani, aka SCoss, to put together the most unique show in recent years: a One-Man-Band performance in which SCoss sings and plays (in synch with video) piano, guitar, bass and drums R.E.D. (a unique set of acoustic drums, which can be played using only the feet and a mechanical stick). The original songs are written in Italian, English, and Spanish, in the repertoire there are some rearranged covers. The whole SCOSS Smart Band (amplification, instruments, and R.E.D.) is powered by a smart independent electrical system, composed of small photovoltaic panels and power banks.
Mainly the list is composed of unpublished songs and videos.
There are 7 sets available (25 unreleased tracks and 7 covers) with an average duration of 19 minutes.
After many years of planning, the performance is now ready. To date, I have no references but on my YouTube channel, you will be able to see many jobs and get a clear idea. Originality is the basis of the whole project.
Smart Game Tour
All the energy of a band, in one Scoss
Music is constantly evolving:
Nowadays, we are witnessing a total musical revolution on a global scale.
Music takes new shapes and evolves in terms of sounds, recording techniques, instruments, live performances etc.
But what if I told you that music has evolved so much as to allow to one artist alone, SCoss, to sing and play the drums together with another instrument of choice from guitar, bass, and piano ... all at the same time?
Yes: an extraordinary talent, combined with new technologies (designed by SCoss himself) gave birth to the Smart Game Tour, a European tour characterized by a revolutionary never-seen-before live performance.
Simone Cossignani, aka SCoss, has always been an experimenter: from an early age, he has been putting something of his own in every endeavor, both artistic and professional, learning to play the piano at the age of 6 and the drums at 8, up to four well-known instruments (drums, bass, guitar, and piano) and gaining a considerable experience in the multimedia, video, and social field.
In the early 2000s, he founds his independent label, P.N.T.S.A. Record; since then, he never stops growing and maturing, both as a person and as an artist, up until he creates the Smart Game Tour, a European One-Man-Band tour.
In the live performances that will characterize this tour, SCoss will count on a personal repertoire of over two hours, consisting of over 50 unpublished songs wrote by him, as well as various covers of famous songs he arranged.
The original songs’ lyrics are in different languages (English, Spanish and Italian), often alternating within the same song.
The One-Man Band concept is made possible by the R.E.D. (Real Electric Drum), a small, one-of-a-kind set of acoustic drums he patented, which allows him to perform using only his feet and a mechanical stick.
Keeping his hands free, SCoss can play bass, guitar, and piano totally on his own, giving life to the SCOSS Smart Band.
Obviously, in order to make the performance easier, SCoss has pre-recorded some samples, so as to get a more engaging final result that sounds even more like an actual live performance by a full band.
The whole SCOSS Smart Band (amplification, instruments, and R.E.D.) is powered by a smart independent electrical system, composed of small photovoltaic panels and power banks:
Besides being an ecological solution, it is also a solution to "free" the performance from the boundaries of the power grid.
The flexibility of Scoss’s Smart Band makes the live performance very versatile.
The Smart Game Tour can perfectly adapt to either street music contexts and extended contexts such as festivals or clubs, as well as more private and intimate situations, such as private parties.
But that’s not all: SCoss will put up a real live show, employing video projections with live accompaniment by SCoss. The videos can be played either indoors or outdoors.
Some examples can be watched directly on his YouTube channel "SCoss", where you can find many unreleased music videos made by SCoss together with several video makers.
During these live shows, you will have the chance to purchase various CDs, such as "A Cappello", "SCoss (live in studio)" the virtual CD "Stop Messing" which includes 9 tracks and the Scoss pick. There is also a customized "Jungle Driver" USB drive with many songs and videos plus 15 GB of free storage as a bonus.
Ultimately, performances like those of SCoss are not something you see every day. That is why you should not miss the Smart Game Tour.
It will be an experience you won’t easily forget!
