Looking for a "song", maybe created by scientists, required headphones?

I am looking for a "song" and I believe it was created by scientists. About 10 min long. Headphones were required. It begins with an industrial, pulsating sound like taking a kitchen faucet and spraying it into a stainless steel bowl around and around. After a few minutes, it bursts into loud but clear music with harps and strumming of various instruments. There are no human voices.

I seem to recall this "song" was engineered for a purpose... maybe to help insomniacs, or to create an auditory, holophonic experiment. If you closed your eyes, it created a "visual" effect. I feel like I first learned about it on wimp.com. I also clearly remember learning of this "song" when learning of Marconi Union and their song "Weightless" which was engineered to help you sleep. Any ideas?
