Not sure this is the right place to ask, since the question isn't really about the sci-fi plot. I'm looking for the "credits" (title, composer, etc.) of a piece of music in an episode of Stargate SG-1. Unfortunately IMDb only shows the credits for the main and the end title (the same for each episode):

  • Main Title: Written by Joel Goldsmith and David Arnold
  • End Title: Written by Joel Goldsmith

But I'm interested in the following background music starting around the 6th minute into the episode.

I would like to know if the title was composed for that specific scene or taken from a repository and/or belongs to an existing soundtrack, or at least who composed it.

  • The only musical credit is Joel Goldsmith

    @Valorum yes, and that's to the main/end title, as I've written in my question, not to the background music

    As far as I'm aware that includes the incidental music in the show.

  • @Albin Forgot you posted this... I meant to pull up the episode online to check it out... have you tried sound hound or anything by any chance or is there other sound effects drowning out that opportunity?

1 Answer 1


There is no title.

This is part of the episode's incidental score which, according to the full credits, was composed by Neal Acree and Joel Goldsmith.

To my knowledge, this track never made it onto a soundtrack release.

It [almost certainly] did not come from a third-party musical repository.

  • Those credits also include David Arnold as 'composer: original themes'.

  • Good points, thank you for your answer. It still would be interessted to find out if the track has specifically been composed for the episode or if it has been taken from a repository.

  • @Jontia That's not relevant to the incidental score. Jul 15, 2020 at 11:03
  • @Albin It was composed for the episode, as part of the episode's original incidental score, by the above named composers, who were on the production team of the show. Like almost every other cue in the show (most shows!) ;) Jul 15, 2020 at 11:03
  • @AsteroidsWithWings interesting... thanks. out of curiosity, where did you get this inside information?
