(wonderful for lonely industrial landscapes)
Free download at http://ghosts.nin.com/main/order_options

Mind is a terrible thing to taste - Ministry (my favorite album for violent issues and cyberpunk related shocks)

Chaos AD - Sepultura (One of the best brazilian heavy metal bands. Suitable for urban chaos and riots)

It is alien and matchless for sure!

You'll find some of this in the Mediography in the back of Shock:

Most particularly, you'll find Kraftwerk, who more or less invented Techno, to be a heavy influence on the game.

The soundtrack to the various infilmations of Ghost in the Shell have a really good Globalist feel, switching languages and musical styles while keeping them synthesized.

I find myself listening to a lot of Middle Eastern pop, particularly Algerian. It has French and American influences on top of Arabian and African influences. It really feels like the future.

For deep space, cosmic stuff, you can't really beat Tangerine Dream while Conrad Schnitzler was part of the band. Zeit and Atem are 72-minute, single tracks of whooshing sounds.

Posthuman Tantra is pretty neat stuff! It reminds me of a generative music experiment that I was a... subject? ... in, in the early 90s.

You may also want to check out Delia Derbyshire. She was doing in 1958 what Kraftwerk was figuring out in 1978. She's simply amazing. I find that I enjoy a good portion of her music, though it's uneven as you'd expect such an experiment to be.

It is!

That said, Kraftwerk's music is actually science fiction. It's not just an experiment with science fiction overtones, or theme music from science fiction.
