Dark Streets & Shadows
Femme Fatale

Known equally for his work in both jazz and classical music, Jim Ferguson has contributed to both these musical genres as performer, composer and
musicologist. Film Noir is his tribute in music to the classic film noirs of the 1940s and 1950s. The first movement is Dark Streets & Shadows,
the sound of a distant bell and footsteps are the main effects used with
skill to point the music into setting the mood; I love the marking at the
beginning, Moody, Romantic and A Bit Threatening. «Wheelman« follows the
getaway car to and from the scene of the crime; using effects to describe
a motor idling and revving, a horn honking, and tyres squealing and how
can you resist music marked Motoring But Wary; «Femme Fatale,« the
mysterious and seductive woman. Musically it's quite straightforward, just
remember when you play this, it is marked Sultry and Suspicious; you have
been warned. The suite concludes with «Heater,« the murder weapon! Woven
into the music is loading the gun and the fatal gunshot, and then finally
the collapsing body. This is a really interesting work and something that
would be most effective in a recital. I'm sure a fair amount of acting
skill would not go amiss; well worth investigating and wonderful fun to
work out and play.
