Un Iracondo

BY PORFIRIO RUBIROSA FROM THE ALBUM "IL FURORE COMPOSTO"



Introducing Un iracondo, the third single from the album "Il furore composto", released at the beginning of 2023 by Mercadante Editore (Isola Tobia Label).

This song - which was awarded the Targa 48 in the "Best lyrics" category - is accompanied by a video clip created by Dada Pixel Art in collaboration with Skinna available on YouTube at the link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VFVkUPmvAno




The song is the most personal and intimate of the entire almost twenty-year production of the Venetian artist as it focuses with a certain tone of pain and suffering on the father-son relationship, on the repercussions that the family context can have on a child's future as an adult and on silent compromises in parental relationships. Above all, however, there is a mocking, tragic and inevitable ending.



Musically the sounds are typically Italian from the 1960s, and in this Fabio Merigo's experience with Giuliano Palma & The Bluebeaters also emerges.

It is also a 'programmatic' track since its text contains the expression 'composed furore' which gives the title to the album that contains it.



VIDEO CLIP


The video clip of the single Un iracondo by Porfirio Rubirosa continues the series of previous ones released respectively for the songs Un lussurioso and Un avaro, starring once again a man wearing a mask, more precisely the famous one with the beak typical of plague doctors (like which already happened in the clip of Un avaro).

The images were shot under the direction of Skinna in California, at the Mountain View Cemetery in Oakland and on the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. The editing and screenplay are instead by the visual artist Dada Pixel Art.



«Dada Pixel Art's choice of black and white for the video – explains Porfirio Rubirosa in a note – responds to content needs, even before aesthetic ones. In fact, it is not just a quote, in form and content, from Ingmar Bergman. Rather, the contrast between black and white coherently summarizes that existing between the protagonists of the story, as well as of the song. But if it is undeniable that father and son are placed in comparison, one in front of the other, it is equally true that in the interpretation of the song expressed by the artist, the same character ends up wearing both masks, and in this way being the victim and executioner at the same time."
