One of my favorite science fiction stories is "Dreams are Sacred", by Peter Phillips - under the title of "Get Off My Cloud" it was adapted for TV in 1969 as part of the third series of Out of the Unknown. In the story the central character is put in an extremely threatening situation, with accompanying music described as follows:

"Imagine Puccini's 'Recondita Armonia' re-orchestrated by Stravinsky then re-arranged by Honneger, played by fifty symphony orchestras in the Hollywood Bowl". It is played by a "towering music machine" compared with which "a dozen mighty Wurlitzers rolled into one would have appeared as a miniature piano".

Of course, I immediately thought of Mike's music. Mike, if you read this: how about it? I think you could produce what Phillips had in mind!
