It was James Horner noodling around on his synthesizer. The original Capitol Record Album included a 12 inch record with "The Search For Spock" performed by "James Horner and Group 87". At the time, I thought it was cool that I bought a Star Trek album with TWO records in it. It's funny that I'm the only one that knows this. I guess Horner wouldn't admit to it at this point.
