Plan 9 is a New Zealand based group of musicians consisting of David Donaldson, Stephen Roche, and Janet Roddick.

Together with David Long, also a composer based in New Zealand, they worked on composing and performing "diegetic" or "cultural" music for The Lord of the Rings films.

Besides working on the songs and the music for the three films, Plan 9 also collaborated with David Long on the sound design for The Two Towers and The Return of the King.
