Can anybody tell me any information about this song? Composer? Publisher? Song Name?

I have been trying to figure out who made this song for the last 19 years! I have no clue! I know the words are taken from a Star Trek Next Generation Episode called Time Squared, Season 2, Episode 13. But I want to know something, anything about this song! Album, Artist, Song Title? Anything at all!

Unknown song - Complexity

  • Bits of it sound very familiar (especially the opening bassline) but I can't place any of it exactly. I tried whosampled (whosampled.com/tv/Star-Trek%3A-The-Next-Generation/…) but no luck. I wonder if it might be some kind of DJ mix of different tracks.

  • Yea, that was my thinking too, some kind of remix. But this particular remix had a special place in my intellectual growth, and I'd really like to find out who made it or mixed it up, or what album its from.

As per @MrLister:

This is ambient musician Kim Cascone, recording under the name "Heavenly Music Corporation" (after a song of the same name by Brian Eno and Robert Fripp).

The song in particular is Reentry from his 1993 release, "In a Garden of Eden."


I think this might be a version of a track called "Moebius," by the ambient group Orbital. It sounds quite different than the original track, but I know Orbital used that sample several times.

  • Orbital weren't an "ambient" band. They made electronic dance music.

    Yea, this cannot be Orbital as it doesn't have the Orbital "Sound", This is a complete remix, it has to be, but the question is who's remix is it? I'm afraid the only answer to that question will be to contact the radio station where it originally aired on KCUR night-tides, and see if they have a record of who it might be that made this mix.
