Re: Most foreboding music

Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi (O Fortuna) from Carl Orff's cantata Carmina Burana was the first thing that popped into my brain when reading the title of this thread, but when it comes to cinema I remember being mightily impressed/petrified as an eight year old by Jerry Goldsmith's The Cloud and V'ger Flyover from Star Trek: The Motion Picture. BTW, Zdeněk Liška's score for the 1963 Czech(oslovak) sci-fi film Ikarie XB 1 - in particular the cue heard during the film's climax as the titular starship approaches the "White Planet" and we see an alien megalopolis on the bridge viewscreen - is certainly not appropriate listening for those who may be semi-seriously contemplating suicide.
