“Neo and Trinity Theme (Johnny Klimek & Tom Tykwer Exomorph Remix)” sees composers Johnny Klimek (Cloud AtlasDeadwood, Run Lola Run) & Tom Tykwer (Cloud Atlas, Run Lola Run {Director}, Babylon Berlin), who have worked closely together and co-composed since 1996, reunite with close friend, collaborator, and The Matrix Resurrections director/co-writer/producer Lana Wachowski. Their 2012 collaboration Cloud Atlas garnered a Golden Globe Nomination for Klimek and Tykwer’s work on the film’s music.

Tom Tykwer discussed the composers’ work on The Matrix Resurrections. “There’s a powerful and distinct musical legacy here. In my opinion, The Matrix trilogy is one of the great scores of all time. And what’s particularly fantastic about it is that it was also, to my knowledge, one of the first film scores that so implemented electronic music and connected it with progressive late-modern orchestral music. It started a movement, which we are paying tribute to with this music. And yet, this film is playful and emotional with complex development, open in every direction. Johnny and I felt our challenge for the music was to pay tribute to The Matrix lineage and also support this cinematic endeavor of expanding that legacy to explore a new direction. That needs to be represented in the music and that is what we are trying to investigate musically.”

Johnny Klimek elaborated, “We spent several months working on material for The Matrix Resurrections, building the main themes, crafting alternative arrangements and electronic variants. We had a lot of fun mixing electronics with classical orchestra. The technology has come so far since I started scoring film.”

The infusion of electronic music into the score ultimately expanded into the inclusion of 11 remixes on the album, and it was an amalgam of inspirations which brought that idea to fruition. Both composers have worked extensively with electronic music, including their work on the celebrated, techno-infused Run Lola Run soundtrack. Further, Lana Wachowski lives in Berlin and is connected to many DJs, remixers, producers, and personalities deeply involved and associated with the underground electronic music scene – some of them for more than 30 years –  and the well-known Berlin nightclub Berghain. These connections and inspirations organically evolved from a remix idea into the larger inclusion of remixes on the album.

In addition to Klimek and Twyker, additional remix contributions on the album come from:

  • Alessandro Adriani is producer, DJ, live performer and owner of Mannequin Records – which has won praise from buyers and critics alike for its open-minded blend of on-point reissues, archival collections and fresh productions. He has appeared at festivals such as Berlin Atonal, Dekmantel, ADE, Dimensions, Neopop, Positive Education, Signal and more, and has bi-monthly dates at Berghain and Panorama Bar, a residency he’s held since early 2016.
  • Marcel Dettmann – a passionate DJ, curator, producer, and one of the faces of Berghain, Marcel Dettmann is recognized as one of the most influential proponents of contemporary Techno.He is a label owner, compilation producer, and His own releases comprise numerous albums, singles and remixes for artists of many genres.
  • Almost Falling is a new musical endeavour by Esther Silex and Heiko Tubbesing. A project that plays with styles and elements from pop and electronic music, weaving contemporary paradigm into the songs through mantra-like lyrics.  Their live-debut happened to be an extra-ordinary ‘during-lockdown-production’ for ARTE tv in concert in March 2021.
  • Moderna – the Los Angeles transplant now residing in Berlin who has gained worldwide recognition and underground appeal, is sought after internationally all while touring and running her hybrid label and radio show ‘Brave New Rave’. Her style style is described as a dark heady blend of Techno, Dark Disco, Elektro, and Acid with wrought darkened vocals that has become her signature distinction
  • System 01 is the collaboration between Johnny Klimek and Paul Browse. Following their first release, which involved a collaboration with acid guru Dr. Timothy Leary, their music was dubbed “intelligent techno” and with the subsequent release of the hedonistic Drugs Work album, it was clear that they had become the new sound of Berlin. Despite the passing of time their music has remained relevant, is still played in clubs, and thanks to Alessandro Adriani will re-released on his Mannequin Records on the 24th January 2022.
  • Thomas Fehlmann is a major catalyst in the advancement of Berlin techno and the scene’s lasting Detroit connection. A Swiss composer/producer who lives in Berlin, Germany, Fehlmann has been active in electronic music since the 1980s and coursed through decades of underground activity dating back to his early-’80s adventures with post-punk band Palais Schaumburg. He is currently active on the Kompakt record label based in Germany. Fehlmann is an on-and-off member of Sun Electric and The Orb.
  • Esther Silex & Kotelett: Berlin based DJ and producer Esther Silex has an unquestionable status as an impassioned powerhouse with enough West German swagger to create timeless music with equal parts simplicity and beauty. Since the summer 2019 Esther is officially KaterBlau-Resident and part of this legendary Berlin family. Kotelett is one half of the Berlin-based DJ and producer duo Kotelett & Zadak, whose origination, nobody knows for sure. Rumors have it that they once had a common love for sprat fishing and point their fateful meeting to somewhere on the North German Coast.
  • Psychic Health (Gabriel Mounsey and Devon Steffens ) have been producing their style of cinematic techno and ambient electronic music since 2015. Alongside producing, Mounsey and Steffens perform hardware focused live PA sets, and have had tracks featured in the Netflix series SENSE8.  Steffens hosts the Triptronics Research live performance series, and Mounsey works as an accomplished film composer and mixer.
  • Gudrun Gut’s story spans many years, scenes, and sounds, from the “ingenious dilettantes” subculture of early 1980’s Berlin as part of Mania D, Einstürzende Neubauten, and Malaria! to Matador into an expansive solo catalog of later work. She has founded record labels, been radio presenter and producer, curated festivals, participated on the advisory committee for Musicboard Berlin, and since 2016 part of the artist funding jury of Initiative Musik DE, and performed at The Royal Albert Hall with Âme as part of an Innervisions label night.
  • Eclectic Youth: Influenced by electronic sounds, cinematic landscapes and club-oriented beats, Eclectic Youth (a.k.a. EEOOAAEE) is focused on translating real life’s experiences into dynamic musical pictures to inspire and trigger a new eclectic scene focused on bringing people together. A celebration of all the differences that make us unique and that push us to look for our own kind, twin souls, brothers and sisters, friends, PEOPLE. Free from our egos we will connect and discover a new way to BE.
