Powerman 5000 (metal rock type group). They have two cds full of great sci-fi analogies. Plus the singer is amazing.

Try downloading:
(From Tonight the Stars Revolt)
Supernova goes pop
when worlds collide
operate annihilate
nobody's real
watch the sky for me (this ones soft jazz)

(From Anyone for Doomsday)
The end of everything
bombshell

I hear there's this group called the Precursors. They make remixes from the original soundtrack of an old PC game called StarControl2. You should check out their stuff  Grin

Aha, a classical fan. D_999, try procofiev's 2nd piano concerto (my favorite piece by my favorite composer, expecially the ur-quan like 3rd movement)

I  like other russian composers of the late romantic early 20th centery era: rachmaninov, shosticovich...

A random good piece is the Symphonic Evolution by Hindemith.

The classical music I really like is american stuff written in the 1940-60s. Especially fun to play because of all the rubato.

Of course this isn't really downloading music, its more live performance music but D_999 got me started.

Judas Priest's "Painkiller" and "Turbo Lover"
Led Zeppelin's music is awesome most of which stand out like "Rock and Roll" and "Kashmire"(not a reference to India) check http://www.ledzep.com it has samples.
Van Halen's "Jump" and "Panama"
*Jethro Tull's "Aqualung" "Locomotive Breath" and "Hymn 43"
Pearl Jam's "Once" and "Alive"
look for the Starcraft remix of Metallica's "One" it's worth the long download time.

* Note The album Aqualung has numerous appearance's of "GOD" and similiar religious ideas, I just felt that it was worth meantioning.

We must each create our own paths. Do not mimic mine, I don't even like myself.

Random great classical pieces:

Bela Bartok - Music for Strings, percussion and Celesta (some of it used in The Shining, to great effect)
Giuseppe Verdi - Dies Irae (from the Requiem mass, really poiwerful stuff)
Beethoven - Symphoni no.5 (one of the few "essential" classical works)
Philip Glass - Itaipu
Hildegard von Bingen - O Virtue Sapientiae

I'm also partial to the works of Pärt, Ligeti and Penderecki, but I don't know how many are with me on that. Roll Eyes

And here are some of my other favourite artists/groups, all of which are well worth checking out, if you haven't already done so.

Pink Floyd, Tom Waits, Bob Dylan, Jean Michel Jarre, Michael Hedges, Black Sabbath, Miles Davis, Roy Harper, King Crimson, Django Reinhardt, St. Germain, Beatles (can't go wrong there - excellent stuff, all of it), Led Zeppelin, Tool, the list goes on.


And here is something you can actually download, the music of a guy called Bjorn Lynne, known as Dr. Awesome in the old Amiga days (around 1990). Really talented, lots of great stuff:

Pärt, I'm definitely up with. Ligeti I have only heard one thing, Atmospheres, but it's good. Would make good orbit music IIRC.

Atmospheres would fit nicely, yes. Especially considering the fact that it was used in 2001: A Space Odyssey. Wink

I listen a lot to Pärt's "Fratres" variations. "Cantus in memory or Benjamin Britten" also is a great piece, with its slow, stately build-up. I also like his choir works, or those of them that I've heard. Music right up my alley, I'd say. Smiley

The one thing by Pärt that I didn't like too much was Arbos.

Still, the minimalist school is not my main favorite -- Prokofiev and Mahler are about the center. Barber, Britten, Vaughan Williams.

I'm not much into the 20th century American composers; maybe you could point out a good starting point for the uninitiated? Smiley

I've heard Barber's adagio for strings, of course. Of Brittens works I've only really listened to Variations on a theme, op.10.

Prokofiev and Mahler; bring 'em on! Smiley I'm really partial to Mahlers 5th, particularily the opening movement.

In general I prefer slow, sorrowful movements over lively ones, which is probably part of the reason I like Pärt so much. But on the other hand, if I want to listen to rousing classical music, I like it REALLY rousing and powerful, like Carmina Burana and Verdi's Dies Irae.

Where to start? I began listing stuff but it got too long... so here are a good dozen, all from different composers, spanning a variety of styles. All orchestral it seems, though...

1: Sibelius: any symphony would do, but I'll say 6.
2: Britten: War Requiem
3: Barber: Prayers of Kirkegaard
4: Prokofiev: Symphony 5
5: Vaughan Williams: Fantasia on a theme by Thomas Tallis
6: Shostakovich: one of his violin concertos (I don't have #s or key... the order of movements is Nocturne, Scherzo, Passacaglia, Burlesque)
7: Stravinsky: Symphony of Psalms
8: Mahler: Symphony 3
9: William Howard Schuman: symphony 5
10: Roy Harris: symphony 3
11: Shoenberg: Verklarte Nacht
12: Hindemith: Mathis der Maler symphony (I don't know the opera)
