A unique sensory experience for enthusiasts of film, jazz, and new music
Length: 60 mins
"Shades of Jazz on Noir" film combines the passion and despondency of classic film noir with the texture and dynamism of live modern jazz improvisation, resulting in a unique sensory experience for enthusiasts of film, jazz, and new music.
The emotional path required to improvise complements film noir’s crude and joyful reality in a unique and little-used way, creating the music of film noir as it could have been. Shades of Jazz on Noir, shows the antagonistic character of film noir, which is the femme fatale. The film’s story arc, voiceover, and musical accompaniment portray film noir’s sultry, treacherous, and iconic leading women.
