Help me identify the music in the DARK CITY trailer!

Dark City has a pretty cool trailer.

For years I have been enraptured by this short piece with the awesome music, but cannot get answers from anyone, anywhere, about what the music was taken from.

It sounds like Dead Can Dance meets some goth-techno-darkwave...does anyone have any idea what it is or how to find out?

it's most likely on the soundtrack which is half
tech/industrial/alternative rock and half orchestrated score.

It's called "Sleep Now" by Hughes Hall. I believe it's only on the Dark City soundtrack and, as far as I know, it's the only thing he's done.

(Jepthah smacks his own forehead)

You would think I would begin with the obvious places. I just assumed that because the piece didn't audibly appear anywhere in the actual film it wasn't composed for it.

Guess I have to check out the sndtrk--are you sure about this?

Yeah, I listen to it at least every other day. The song's short though, way too short for such a great song. It's only about 2 minutes long. The Gary Numan song is good too. If you want to hear people go nuts on the strings, listen to track 12 (I believe, I don't know for a fact because I don't have the CD with me).
