^to me it sounds a little bit like afx's "on" with the bottom timbre resembling his "afx2" - Is it a pure compositional coincidence, or were you influenced by afx at the time?

Hi there

I love Aphex's music, although not specifically here IIRC..I would plead innocence and coincidence! I certainly never TRIED to copy anyone
I was in the R&S studio when Renaat first opened a cassette of tracks from Richard. It was tracks for "Ambient Works Volume 1". I loved it straightaway and always thought he was just a breath of fresh air..I would say the people that influenced me most however were an odd mix of Tangerine Dream, Schulze, Black Sabbath, Floyd, Trevor Horn etc..I grew up on so much cool music and it all inspired me and I can hear it in what I do. I would think he was also influenced by some of the same artists as me.
The things is, looking back, everyone was doing their thing and I think you can hear that too, but it was one big movement so there is crosstalk everywhere. A fabulous period to be making underground or club music. Hardly a bad vibe anywhere..

thanks for the question!
