David Byrne (of Talking Heads and The Last Emperor fame) is contributing theme music for a Wired Magazine TV show pilot on PBS. From the press release:

WIRED SCIENCE brings Wired magazine’s cutting-edge vision, stylish design and irreverent attitude to the screen with breakout ideas, recent discoveries and the latest innovations.

WIRED SCIENCE is a co-production of KCET/Los Angeles, the West Coast flagship station of PBS, and Wired, the pre-eminent science and technology magazine. WIRED SCIENCE is a production of executive producer Tod Mesirow (“MythBusters,” “Monster Garage”), senior producer David Axelrod (Emmy winner for the NOVA special “Galileo’s Battle for the Heavens”) and production designer Grant Major (Lord of the Rings trilogy, King Kong). David Byrne, Grammy- and Oscar-winning composer (The Last Emperor) and co-founder of the Talking Heads, produced the theme music for the show.

No word on who’s scoring the rest of it…however they say they will be covering NASA’s extreme underwater astronaut training program NEEMO. Maybe the music for that will sound like this.
