Persona Grata ― 2022 ― 00 000

Bernardino Femminielli

Bernardino Femminielli works in media including music, performance, poetry and film under the guise of a hyper-sexual, genderless provocateur. His work and character are a synthesis of mysticism, transgression, danger and pleasure– a detached crooner deep within a distopian discotheque. Narrating in French and Spanish, from classical arrangements to brutal Italo-disco, from heavy cosmic drone to mutant industrial: his sonic ventures reflect his adopted personas. His lyrics explore an imagined illicit paradise full of excess, drugs, bars, pleasure, 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 intensely vulnerable performer explores the rich and dark energy of French and German cabaret– emphasizing the “total” performance where poetry, music, film, and dance coalesce.

Bernardino Femminielli c'est de la musique, de la performance, de la poésie et du cinéma, tout ça à la fois exécuté sous l'apparence d'un provocateur hypersexuel et asexué. Son travail et son personnage sont une synthèse de mysticisme, de transgression, de danger et de plaisir - un crooner croulant au fond d'une discothèque dystopique. Des histoires en français et en espagnol, sur fond d'arrangements allant de l'Italo-disco brutal, au drone cosmique lourd en passant par l'industriel mutant. Ses aventures sonores reflètent ses personnalités d'adoption. Ses paroles explorent un paradis imaginaire illicite, plein d'excès, de drogues, de bars, de plaisir, d'obscurité et de compagnie. Sur scène, l'interprète conflictuel mais intensément vulnérable explore l'énergie riche et sombre du cabaret français et allemand - mettant l'accent sur la performance «totale» où la poésie, la musique, le cinéma et la danse fusionnent.

” Bernardino Femminielli, c’est un peu le Gini de la musique moderne : «la plus chaude des boissons froides». Touche à tout – même dans le sens le plus licencieux – Bernardino est à la fois un gars bien et un sale type, un vieux dégueulasse et un être sensible. Bref, un anti-héros de la pop moderne et le plus grand symbole du (por)no future.” (Brain Magazine)
“Âge indéfini, look de porno-star sorti d’une version mexicaine de Boogie Nights, discographie en forme de 69 et qui, du coup, sent le foutre à plein nez : Bernardino Femminielli est un roman à lui tout seul.” (Gonzaï)
