This is called ambient music. It's an entire sub-genre of electronic, and has existed in more or less similar form for 20 years or more.

You can find thousands of entire mixes of ambient music that are perfect for coding to (I listen myself ) on mixcloud under the tag Ambient:

Turns out it's also perfect music for exploring the galaxy as background music in a number of video games.

It's possible the area was mapped previously or even visited in the 30's by that Morde person, but these Archaeologists are actually examining some of the artifacts, and from what they are saying it appears they don't correspond to any previously known artifacts from other civilizations of the time period. The Lidar mapping done indicated there were a number of cities along the river in this area that were quite sizable. They aren't ignoring the history of previous expeditions at all. The Atlantic article referenced areas T1-T4. Areas T2-T4 had been looked at previously, but not extensively or in any great detail.

The T1 area, where they found this city, had not been looked at previously; the authors stated that to their knowledge there had not been an expedition there because it was too hard to get to.
