As for Tykwer and co, I like their music a lot so I will be interested to see what they bring to the table for this.

I haven't heard a lot from them. Lola Rennt of course, which is fantastic and demonstrative of fine electronics-driven action scoring. What would you say are their best scores?

I still have hope that they will call Davis back for some sort of collaboration like it was on previous scores with Juno Reactor.

This doesn't bode well for the quality of the film itself if they can't even get Davis onboard (or didn't try).

Davis likely bowed out when offered. He's only got two scores done in the last 14 years, so I think he's done with Hollywood and for all intents and purposes - the sequel movies weren't happy for a lot of the crew.


Was Davis even offered? If I recall correctly, an FSMer on a thread about Giacchino mentioned that Davis' score for Speed Racer was rejected by the Wachowskis and that seemed to have ended their partnership. Anyway, the first Matrix and V for Vendetta were the only two good films that the Wachowskis made. As for Tykwer and co, I like their music a lot so I will be interested to see what they bring to the table for this.


One of the reasons Davis had a break in movies is his work on opera Río de Sangre (and it was during the production of Speed Racer as far as I know). I don't think there is any reasons why they can't invite Davis back.

Anyway, let's wait for the official announcments.

They were recording something in London a while ago and a violinist friend of mine working on it told me at that time that it wasn’t Davis. He does a lot of studio work and we laugh about how he gets paid for playing lots of whole notes. He would have liked a more interesting composer but right now they are just happy for any work they can get.

But your friend didn't say what they exactly recording, didn't he? Sorry if I'm wrong.

The three scores that I would rate highly are: Perfume: The Story of a Murderer (the only film score that I am aware of that was recorded by the Berliner Philharmoniker), Cloud Atlas (directed by The Wachowskis), and One Hour Photo.
