Matrix was something new and interesting when it was released. It used innovative camera techniques and borrowed a lot visually speaking from anime- which most Americans are oblivious of. Without bringing something new to the table another sequel would be rather redundant.

Can´t imagine Matrix world without Davis music.



Neodammerung - my favorite film music orchestral/choral work.

Wachowskis have no balls, that's new allright.

I understand the idea of another story sitting potentially not ideally against the end film in the trilogy, as neat as it concluded, but if all the right people come back for a good story, I`m in.

Voicing skepticism is one thing. Utter condemnation of a film as yet totally unseen... seems unwise.

And Don Davis if they can get him back, with friends, yes. smile

I feel like, in their own way, Davis's Matrix scores are as iconic as Howard Shore's music for Middle Earth. If Peter Jackson and Shore could work together because it was needed, I feel at least a slight bit of hope that Davis and the Wachowskis might be able to reconnect...

Well, you never know what may happen. Raimi and Elfman made up, Cameron apologized to Horner and we got "Titanic".

It would be absolutely amazing to see Davis return to big movies! To be honest I don't see any other composer who could replace him in The Matrix.

John Coolidge Adams


As I listened to yet another ho-hum John adams score, I return often to Davis’ music as being “the best John adams music available, and generally better than most of Adams’ best.”

Yeah, but then we got AVATAR (paging James Southall to thread)

yeah I cannot hear anyone else doing this score either. Davis' music balanced minimalism with the best modern and post modern concert hall ideologies with a touch of early 20th century Romanticism (maybe late Mahler or Berg). I honestly don't know many other composers except Goldenthal who could balance those. Maybe Corigliano and that would be a very interesting collaboration but I doubt it will happen. We will either get Giacchino or Junkie XL or those guys who score Stranger Things...

We'll ever get junk[ie XL] or be balfed all over, if the brothers don't make up with Davis.

If I wanted creepy, sexist, shit-steam heat xenophobia, I'd watch Fox News. Stow the middle school, we're adults here.

I’d say they are almost moreso. The pure level of sophistication in concept through to execution is probably one of the few examples of high art colliding with pop art in the 21st century. I don’t listen to the expanded CDs a lot but Davis has my respect for creating a unique, stylized, musically rich tapestry for the franchise that so few others have been able to accomplish.

Let’s keep it civil folks. Thank you.

Instead of anything innovative and interesting I think the score will be something in the lines of Blade Runner 2049 and Dark Phoenix, composed by Hans Zimmer and a handful of ghost writers.

One day LeHah will find his funny bone. wink

Regarding the music, its pretty loud and obnoxious but in a good way. I dig the scores though I have to be in the mood for them. And as others have said it has a unique style all their own.

We were definitely spoiled by Davis’ Matrix scores. We took them for granted. I hope we get to see the Davis/Reactor duo again in the new film. Even more Davis VS. Reactor cues please! Burly Brawl is a masterpiece.

Definitely, yes! Whoever saw the suitability of Ben Watkins in the musical MATRIX universe, was a genius. Both elements work wonderfully on their own, but the organix mix is something to behold; Juno's hard beats work suprisingly well with Davis' sharp tonal explorations. Also, I'm eternally grateful to the collaboration, because otherwise we probably wouldn't have had Juno's best album to date -- LABYRINTH -- which very much has the same musical DNA, even though it concerns Spanish conquistadors.

I hope both Davis and Ben return for this sequel.
