The soundtrack for Mobile Suit Gundam Zeta was pretty good at setting up a grim pessimistic atmosphere.

Re: Most foreboding music

You mean besides the frakking Avatar pop-up music?

Heh, some good choices here, but I'm afraid I have the winner. "Koyaanisqatsi" by Philip Glass:



I dare you to top that one.

It's a good flesh-creepy one but I'm sure it can be topped. The use of Ligeti (apparently without his permission) in Space 2001 is fairly hair-raising in parts.

Re: Most foreboding music

Try program #338 from www.hos.com
Festival of Gloom

Details:

"INTRO : Welcome to Scorpio - a time of darkening in the world around us,when Celtic mythology considered the veil between this world and the 'world of the spirits' to be at its thinnest - In the spirit of the season, we have an immaculately moody offering for you."

"English singer DAVID SYLVIAN puts it this way:

'The night is dark and cold
Strong winds and the rain
Crack the branches upon my window
The devil beats his drum, casting out his spell
Dragging all his own down into hell.'

" On this edition of HEARTS of SPACE we journey down the dark corridors, through the rainy streets, past the industrial wastelands, and into the ethereal, introspective sounds of the Halloween season, with a program called 'FESTIVAL OF GLOOM.'"

No love for Bach's Toccata and Fugue in G-minor? Wow.

Re: Most foreboding music

^ The problem with Toccata and Fugue is that it's cliched foreboding music now. It brings to mind parodies of horror just as easily as it does actual horror, you know?

How about Mussorgsky's Night on Bald Mountain then?

Henryk Gorecki's Third Symphony always gives me the chills. It's the classical piece I play most often.

In my mind it is tied to scenes of nuclear apocalypse. Awful.
In my mind it is tied to scenes from Sky Sports News. The humanity...

Much love for it here. All of it.



I also find very foreboding Henry Purcell's "Funeral March of Queen Mary II" (especially Wendy Carlos's version for A Clockwork Orange).

In general, Baroque music rocks.

Re: Most foreboding music

I'll add the overture to TUC. Hard to believe that was music for a Trek film.
