Music in the key of Cyberpunk

April 6, 2012

I always listen to music when I paint. Usually it’s just for background ambience or some jolly singalong, but every now and then it’s for inspiration. Lately I’ve been in a scifi mood a lot. After playing through Mirror’s Edge and Deus Ex: Human Revolution I was in such a cyberpunk state of mind, that I just wanted to keep going with that. That turned into a Spotify playlist.

With this intro, I present to you my Cyberpunk list. It’s mostly a combination of video game (Mass Effect, Deus Ex, Mirror’s Edge) and movie (Blade Runner, Underworld, TRON: Legacy, Matrix Reloaded, Contagion) soundtracks with some other selected pieces (Jarre, Burial, The American Dollar)  thrown in. It’s designed mostly for moody, atmospheric background listening, so there isn’t too much dramatic or loud stuff.

Enjoy! If you have suggestions for additions to the list, feel free to send them in.


  1. Would it be possible to see the complete list of songs as text? I can’t seem to use spotify but i’m really interested in knowing the list. I’ve been looking for exactly this sort of thing and was thinking along the same lines (Tron Legacy, Mass Effect, Deus Ex, etc.). Thanks!
