Go here

Listen to this music or this buy clothes from here and pretend you prefer VNV nation to Ultraviolence (in spite of the fact that VNV are shit).

I'm surprised that no-one here is aware of the cyberpunk movement. But not astonished, you're quite a hermetic bunch.

Also, electric dragon 80000v's band.. uh... the band with the director of that and tadanoubou asano, it's some weird number.. but they're cyberpunk.

And yeah a lot of DHR stuff.

So now I want more music that might compliment reading cyberpunk. I'm downloading Oval's 94DISKONT thinking some glitch might work? Anyways, you all know any music that kind of brings that kind of bleak techno dystopia feel?

So your question, thankfully, isn't what music fits the genre of cyberpunk, or even what music has influenced cyberpunk, but rather, what might we suggest as a soundtrack to reading cyberpunk. A good question, and more interesting to me than the other two.

Autechre's Peel Session comes immediately to mind, as do most of their albums. But "Drone" on the Peel Session is perfect for the task.

Fennesz also comes to mind as the perfect mood music for reading about high tech dystopian near-futures.

Mouse On Mars would also do well, and if you could handle the distraction while reading of Mark E. Smith's vocals, their collaboration with him Von Sudenfed may arguably be the truest melding of "punk" and "cyber" in music yet.

Christian Vogel's Rescate 137 is an album that feels very much like it was recorded as a soundtrack for books, and I mean that positively.

If Massive Attack worked for you, then why not U.F.ORB or Orbus Terrarum? Beyond the Ultraworld wouldn't do with "Little Fluffly Clouds" and "Perpetual Dawn" in there, but the next couple Orb albums are both darker and more minimal, which seems what you need.

On a similar tip, Lifeforms by the Future Sound of London seems quite appropriate for your purposes.

On the older front, the first album by Tangerine Dream - Electronic Meditation fits remarkably well, as would tons of Kraftwerk but especially Autobahn. NEU! also seems to fit the bill.

Sonic Youth once flippantly claimed their music was cyberpunk, but really the record by them that would meet your needs would be the Ciccone Youth disc, especially the instrumental parts.

A lot of other suggestions people have made here are good, except they might not work so well for your stated purpose. Who could possibley read while listening to Prodigy or Atari Teenage Riot?? Might as well try Godflesh if you're going to do that.

No, Sonic Nurse contains the song "Pattern Recognition" which is based on the much more recent Gibson album. That's the connection your were undoubtedly thinking of.

Pattern Recognition is set in the contemporary world (essentially our own) though it contains many of the tropes commonly associated with cyberpunk nonetheless. Gibson was rather implying that the future he predicted in Neuromancer and his other science fiction novels is essentially starting right now.

after rereading this thread i see I was responding to the thread title and not the request for music to accompany reading - in that sense I can speak from experience and admit I would listen to tapes of the Cocteau Twins & K-Joke when I was reading Gibson, Rucker and Sterling in the late 80's.

I bought the K-Joke "A New Day" 12" from 1984 today at the P_RECX

I think it was Chu Ishikawa that did those soundtracks. Definitely did the Tetsuo one...

Chrome are pretty much the most cyberpunk sounding band to me.

Like music you could imagine a character in Bladerunner to be listening to.

Anyways, wow, lots of great suggestions. Thanks, everybody.

I'm positive Neuromancer has had SY songs written around it, but not on the Sonic Nurse LP.
