Description

GANGSTA' NOIR is influenced by the Film noir genre of cinema and the sound  scores that accompanied these films. Film noir cinema (mostly shot in gloomy grays, blacks and whites) thematically showed the dark and often inhumane side of human nature. Saturated with cynicism and doomed love, the films emphasized the brutal, unhealthy, seamy, shadowy, dark and sadistic sides of the human experience. An oppressive atmosphere of menace, pessimism, anxiety - the suspicion that anything can go wrong - dingy realism, futility, fatalism, defeat and entrapment all contributed to the heavily stylized characteristics of Film noir.
