Suggest Melodic/Ear PLeasing Sci FI Music?

I'm looking for music to listen to while I play STO or doing other things that is ear pleasing, and/or melodic. I am looking for sci fi sounding stuff with plenty of synthesizers and/or electronic music equipment. This interests ranges from serene, angelic tunes, to engaging 'battle' music. I love ST but let's face it, the music is highly cheeseball. THis music can come from anything, games, movies, shows, mainstream bands, it doesn't matter to me.

Try Jean Michel Jarre: Rendez Vous

Check out the entire soundtrack to any of the X Universe space sim games.

Someone set up a YouTube playlist containing most of them:

Assassin's Creed is kind of outside of the sci-fi category and I don't want to listen to space sounds all too much.

I absolutely love the Fifth Element soundtrack. It's beautiful. I always used to write to that.

Then if you want "space" sci-fi, the Mass Effect series definitely fits the synthesized bill.

The Tron: Legacy soundtrack is exactly what you're looking for.


I also think it would have been a great soundtrack for a Star Trek movie.

Though it is piano based, The Cloud Alas soundtrack, particularly the Cloud Atlas Sextet, is amazing.

There are so many great soundtracks out there or parts of soundtracks. Sometimes the best music is the ones you hardly notice as they fit the scene so well.

Re: Suggest Melodic/Ear PLeasing Sci FI Music?

Most music by Jean Michell Jarre
Boards Of Canada has some awesome music as well
Spheres II by Delerium
Brian Eno's Apollo, that is the definitive space space soundtrack, Eno's other ambient work is probably suited as well
Ayreon's Universal Migrator pt1 : The Dream Sequencer which is a sf story in music

Tron: Legacy / Daft Punk is a good shout. Bit aggressive sometimes for what you suggest, but it's fun.
