Femminielli Noir, is a collaboration between Jesse Osborne-Lanthier and Bernardino Femminielli.
Active since 2007, Jesse Osborne-Lanthier is a Montreal-born and based multidisciplinary artist and musician focused on inciting alternative cognitive responses via mixed sonic material.
In 2014 Osborne-Lanthier released ‘Otherwise Insignificant Psyche Debris’, an album comprised of 22 live recordings from the course of the past few years, as a cassette and digital download via labels Hobo Cult and MIND Records. Focused on the concept of dispositional emotional regulation, the body of work deals with acceptance, avoidance, problem solving, reappraisal, rumination, and suppression. It contains remixes by Grischa Lichtenberger (Raster-Noton, Semantica), Vereker (L.I.E.S.), Hobo Cubes (Debacle, Where To Now?, Digitalis, Opal Tapes), VNDL (Kvitnu, Hymen), and Robert Lippok (To Rococo Rot, Raster Noton) and was mastered in collaboration with Vladislav Delay. It acts as the "exaggerated and terminal" follow-up to the collection ‘Athenaeum of Unedited, Superannuated, Incomplete, Unreleased, Intimate Works 2011-2013’, a selection of more rhythm-oriented pieces, again taken unedited from the main front-of-house mixing boards at his shows in Montreal, Berlin, Barcelona, and Nottingham. Osborne-Lanthier has assisted in the production of many albums including multiple Where To Now? releases and Maurizio Bianchi’s ‘The Mind Is An Ancient Capital’. He has toured America and Europe on many occasions, performing at festivals such as Mutek, Elektra, CTM and FASMA, performed alongside artists such as Kangding Ray, Adam X, Oneohtrix Point Never, Hans Joachim Roedelius, Bill Kouligas, Mark Fell, Factory Floor, Atom TM, Lee Gamble, Brood Ma, Mouse On Mars, Alva Noto, Mary Anne Hobbs, Mondkopf, N1L, Chino Amobi, Low-Jack and Yung Lean. His audio and visual works have also been featured in museums, galleries, clubs, venues and studios such as the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal, The Nottingham Contemporary Museum, National Gallery of Canada, La Petite Mort, São Paulo Museum of Image and Sound, NK Berlin and EMS Studio Stockholm. Jesse is currently prepping releases for pioneering experimental pop king-pin label raster-noton and Rabit’s rapid ground-gaining Halcyon Veil imprint.
Bernardino Femminielli (b. ? // Montreal) is an artist. He 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, danger and pleasure; a detached crooner deep within a distopian discotheque.
