What is THE MATRIX?
Neo, a hacker, is contacted via the Internet by a mysterious underground organization. The leader of the group, the wanted terrorist Morpheus, lets him in on a terrible secret: life as we know it is just an illusory world. In reality, people have long been controlled by a sinister virtual power – The Matrix, whose agents already have their sights on Neo.
THE MATRIX, released in 1999, played a groundbreaking role in the development of the science fiction genre, dealing with a subject of concern to millions of cinema goers at the turn of the millennium: the border between reality and the virtual world. The film's content, narrative and technical realization (e.g. the so-called ‘bullet time effect’) helped open up and propagate a new dimension of film appreciation.
In his composition for THE MATRIX, Don Davis reconciles new music stylistics with the requirements of an action film, using complex and unrelenting sounds to portray the irreality of the Matrix.
