The Matrix Revolutions

Dan Audio Projects, Graphic Design

Although we couldn’t announce it at the time, the truth of the matter is, we were working on The Matrix Revolutions immediately after completion (and prior to release!) on The Matrix Reloaded.  The source for this expanded soundtrack came, like the preceding title, from Don Davis’ own personal ProTools archive.  That yielded us the highest quality elements to use for the project.  And like with Reloaded, music editor Zig Gron was incredibly helpful in getting us any Juno Reactor sources that weren’t in Don’s archive, …

The Matrix Reloaded

I’ve known composer Don Davis for years, having first met him when I interviewed him about The Matrix in 1999, and subsequently building his website.  When The Matrix Reloaded came up as a project, I immediately jumped at the chance to work to bring this amazingly complex and awesome score to the fans.

So where does that leave us with The Matrix Revolutions? Matt and I went …

The Matrix Reloaded

Dan Movie Reviews

Okay, so it’s one of the most anticipated films of the summer. Is it worth the hype? More specifically – was it worth the wait?
