Beskrivelse

Few blockbusters can claim to be as influential as The Matrix (1999), written and directed by the Wachowskis. From its super high-concept that has wormed its way into the public’s imagination (what if we’re all just living in a computer simulation?), to Keanu Reeves’ iconic hero Neo, to the brilliant, jaw-dropping and story-based visual effects, The Matrix delivered on all fronts. Its three films grossed over $1.6 billion worldwide, and a fourth is set for release in 2021 (The Matrix Resurrections).

The Matrix demanded a score that was as unique, sophisticated and imaginative as its concept and action – and got one from composer Don Davis. Davis, who scored the Wachowskis’ film Bound (1996), reinvented the symphonic language of the action blockbuster by drawing on cutting-edge concert-hall minimalism and his own background as an avant-garde composer, while maintaining the energy, pace and density required of a studio action film.

From the clashing-brass “reflections” to the racing strings, pounding percussion and flittering, repeating musical “cells”, the Matrix score fits hand-in-glove with the film’s concept of a computer-controlled reality – and offers a unique musical thumbprint that is recognizable sometimes only from a single note or chord. It is the rare commercial triumph that is also an artistic landmark.
