Gyorgy Ligeti's Atmospheres. You've probably heard it, even if you don't recognize the name, or the composer's name. It's used in 2001: A Space Odyssey, in the scene where they investigate the monolith on the moon.

I was a kid (teenager) when I saw that movie, but I was fascinated by that music. I eventually found out what it was, and that led to a lifelong love of Ligeti's music.

Kubrick used Ligeti's music again in Eyes Wide Shut. That two-note piano music is the second movement of Ligeti's Musica Ricercata. It's pretty creepy.
