Podcast 264: Bernardino Femminielli



Bernardino Femminielli works in media including music, performance, poetry and film under the guise of a hyper-sexual provocation. His work and character are a synthesis of mysticism, danger and pleasure— a detached crooner rotting in a dive bar. Narrating in French, Spanish and English, from musique de variété to brutal Italo-disco, from heavy cosmic drone to mutant industrial: his sonic ventures reflect his volatile personas. His lyrics explore an imagined illicit paradise full of excess, darkness and companionship. Much of his poetry is arranged using the cut-up technique and is composed similarly to works of transgressive fiction. On stage, the confrontational yet vulnerable performer explores the rich and dark energy of French and German cabaret-- emphasizing the total performance where poetry, music, film and dance coalesce.
