FiLM NOiR WORLD first brought the electronic world to A climax with "It's Here," and "Dark Earth." Now with the third full length release from Mark Johnson a.k.a. FiLM NOiR WORLD, has almost arrived (2.26.2010) and the critics are talking...
"Residing in the music of England, Film Noir World is a project by a one man band and producer who makes music that have a movie soundtrack feel. From love, adventure, to suspense, thriller, mysterious, action, and horror. A combining elements of electronic, trip-hop, and hip-hop. A persistent range of orchestral & relating strings and choir cliched phrases that Film Noir World has somehow twisted and warped just enough of a common thread holding it all together to make it work in a brilliant way. Multifaceted and brimming with an eclectic sound. The BBC and Hollywood in the USA may give this one man music producer his big break. He deserves it! The framework of the music is an exploring of complexities. A patchwork from start to finish. Film Noir World proves that it is possible to create music that is both powerful and melodic while, at the same time, conveying some human emotion, and penetrates to the emotional heart. An admirable and brave collection of tracks to say at least, which is quite impressive and an achievement. "

"Last issue, the Nottingham, UK-based Film Noir World took many honors, and deservedly so. FNW's sound is almostunlike any other dark electronica outfit out there today: dark, symphonic textures overriding and intermixing with state-of-the-art beats and synths, all rolled up into an ominout pop format. "Something Dark", from their 2007 debut LP, "It's Here...", is a blockbuster instrumental. Gorgeous Howard Shore ("Lord of the Rings" composer) symphonics glide into a funky andbeat-heavy electronica brew. The Mix of cinematics and electronics is extraordinary. "And they danced", a third album offering, takes a different course. Using the symphonic brittleness of pizzicato strings, "danced" weaves a journeythrough odd nursery rhymes that manages to sounds both like "Days of Future Passed" (the 1967 Moody Blues classic)and trip-hop. Dense fx at the end add to the weirdish proceedings (this can be found on the newest Film Noir World release "Tales of the Lost Cat). "
