Da Vinci Overload (2016 Demo)


Author Comments

This piece was inspired by "Mona Lisa Overdrive", as I'm a big fan of The Matrix films and the music, as well as Juno Reactor. That song is one of my favorites from The Matrix Reloaded. Don Davis and Juno Reactor are amazing composers. Shame I can't find the project file to finish this song...

All of the compositional elements are here I think (although it took a while for the song to properly build up) but a few parts just felt a bit bare to me. An extra layer of synth here or there might have helped create a more complete soundscape, which is usually what you want for this kind of fast-paced action music.

Ah well I was trying to keep it close to Mona Lisa Overdrive lol.

Cool song title and I can def feel the matrix influence

ThatJohnnyGuy responds:


Yeah, Mona Lisa Overdrive is a great tune, and so is this one!

ThatJohnnyGuy responds:


For a moment, I thought you were referring to the band Mona Lisa Overdrive / A2. The music does have a Matrix vibe to it, gives a feeling of getting ready to go in for a final attack on the villains and trying to free everyone. Not really too much that could be improved, the drum kicks blend in smoothly to the beat and the sound is very reminiscent of early 2000s techno type music for action movies.

Song kind of feels like it could go well in either Mortal Kombat or The Matrix series.

ThatJohnnyGuy responds:

Thanks, I studied the song carefully to match it's mixing style as well as elements.
