The Inception theme versus AFX music

AFX Logo

Aphex Twin is one of the greatest and most influential electronic music artists ever born. An unpredictable introvert, his Selected Ambient Works 85-92 changed the electronic music scene forever. Yet according to the years in the title of the album, he was only 14 while he started working on SAW!

I was recently listening to his Richard D. James Album (1996), and suddenly it struck me that the Girl/Boy Song's ambient piece starting at around 3:05 (YT) is the main Inception's music theme - Time (YT).

Inception world

The Girl/Boy Song is faster (by ~25%) than Time, so I slowed down the latter track in Audacity. When played together, one in the left channel and the other in the right channel it feels like a single, coherent piece.

And for those of you that want to hear it separately, here is the beginning of Inception - Time, and the slowed down and synchronized AFX - Girl/Boy Song
