Default Music representing modernisation?

I find myself listening up and down to Adams' dancing chairman. Does anyone know more musical pieces like that? Music that invokes a feeling of mechanical automatisation, technological progress, rapid advancements/changes?

It must not obviously portray modernisation/progress as something bad/scary.

It doesn't necessarily need to be modernist music, though that would be really cool since it will aid the feeling of "modern" a lot for obvious reasons.

This is clearly not what you're looking for, but I just thought it'd be an interesting thing to put up, cause it's the closest you'll get in metal, and is pretty much exactly what you're talking about in its own way. Okay, peace, I'm out!

No problem.


I honestly don't get the vibe at all. But I get it from a handful of Kreator songs.

This song from clinic always sounded to me a bit sterile and mechanic for some reason.
something in the organ and the video also add to that feeling.






I can practically hear the steam coming out the musical arrangement in this song. also World record is the sh*t.

That World Record song is indeed nice, but I've been aiming for "classical" music actually, sorry.

Do people generally troll random threads on this forum or is it just my threads?

The depiction of technological "progress" is a little dated---more like a high-industrial conception of it---but the general idea of mechanization still applies, as the title implies.

Wooo, that one sounds pretty scary.

I relaise it is a difficult subject though. Maybe I should stick to John Adams for now and then get to know similar artists, they'll have something up their sleeve.
