From this trailer:



The song is 'My World', and the group is 'Transmissions', but...well, that (and the other song on the single) is all they seem to have done! So iTunes, Pandora, etc don't seem to be able to make heads or tails of it to find more music like that.

I'm guessing some folks in Chit Chat who are exceptionally genre-savvy might turn up a direction to go, though?

I would suggest the original soundtracks to Ghost in the Shell SAC 1 & 2. There are some great tracks on there such as:

Rise:

That's not bad, actually. Not *quite* what I was looking for (not sure what the missing element is - more of a steady beat?)

Totally a coincidence, but 'Numb' by Portishead came up in my playlist.



There's something about that in what I'm looking for, too... (Although, obviously...uhhh...slower paced. It is Portishead, after all...)

Seconded! I might note Ghost=soul (or at least, home of consciousness), Shell=Internet, cloud, or really any sufficiently large storage medium, #9=the protagonist's unit number

I picked these in part for music, in part for portraying the two series"'s", which are well worth watching, IMHO. Maybe none are the exact show--tough to tell with YT. Note that CGI animation is restricted to GitS the SAC opening (and SAC2 opening? I forget.) IMHO, the movies are no better than so-so.

GitS SAC opening, "Inner Universe":


GitS SAC close, "Living inside the Shell" (no animation--longer than closing):


GitS SAC2 opening:


GitS SAC2 close, "Lithium Flower":



I also direct your attention to the less serious--but still very serious at times (dips? high points?)--Cowboy Bebop, in which each episode (or pair, for two-parters) has its own distinctive music.
Opening, "Tank":


Closing, "The Real Folk Song Blues" (no animation; episodes end, "So long, Space Cowboy"; Cowboy=bounty hunter):



PS: If you're at all into turn-based strategy games, you should probably play SMAC and SMAX, available as a pair for about $20. Yes, they are quite old. Your point? Note that they are in "print" and supported, still. Firaxis Games, Inc. and Electronic Arts Inc. (EA) seem to be terrified to remake them--for good reason. The originals are that good.

I bet it's the 'techno-oriented Bjork' part that is the tricky thing to find. I do have some music from her, but her style...I mean, it's always "weird", but it does vary a lot!

Sounds like trip-hop, with an industrial, dark ambient vibe.
