Mondo releases new special vinyl editions every Wednesday. This is the ultimate edition of everything they release, with plenty of liner notes, brand new commissioned artwork, and always a limited edition size. The vinyl itself is usually colored or a photo disc as well. Basically, it’s like the Criterion Collection of movie and game soundtracks. This week sees the release of the soundtrack of The Matrix Resurrections, the final entry in the series. The complete soundtrack of Johnny Klimek and Tom Tykwer will be spread over two Matrix-thematic color discs. They will also release a separate version, The Matrix Resurrections Remixes, in a red and blue pill disc.
Mondo’s Matrix Resurrections Release Details
“There is a powerful and distinct musical heritage here. In my opinion, The Matrix Trilogy is one of the great scores of all time. And what is particularly fantastic is that it was also, in my opinion knowledge, one of the first film scores that thus established electronic music and connected it to the progressive orchestral music of late modernity. This started a movement that we pay homage to with this music. And yet, this film is playful and emotional with a complex development, open in all directions Johnny and I felt that our challenge for the music was to pay homage to the lineage of The Matrix and also to support this cinematic effort to expand this heritage to explore new directions. That needs to be represented in the music, and that’s what we try to explore musically,” said Tom Tykwer. Johnny Klimek explained: “We spent several months working on the material for The Matrix Resurrections, building the main themes, creating alternate arrangements and electronic variations. We had a lot of fun mixing electronics with a classical orchestra. started scoring movies.”
