The Aphex Twin Music on TV

Recommended Posts

Since I started my intrest in Aphex Twin I have seen 3 advertisments containing music by AFX himself:

 

"One Hour Photo" Channel 4 film trailer (Schottkey 7th Path)

A Car Advert (I forgot the brand) [shiny metal rods]

Channel 4 trailer which I forgot the programme (Thw Waxen Pith)

 

If anyone else sees or hears Aphex Twin music on TV programmes or adverts it would be apreciated that it be posted here. Also shows/ads before I started checking with AFX music and foreign programming can go here too.

SAW CD2 Track 3 is currently being used on a car advert (can't remember which company right now).

 

Bollocks, sorry! Just reread your original post! Don't worry, I won't mention Pirelli!

How far back do you want to go? At least this one isn't a duplicate post!

 

On BBCs 'Holiday' programme a little while back, 'Flim' and 'Digeridoo' were both used in the same feature (funnily enough, it was about Australia).

 

More recently, of course, 'Windowlicker' was used in an Audi advert.

top gear use his music almost every week.

Can't remember what track it was last night

(maybe something from SAWII - very recognizable).

Someone producing that show needs a pat on the back anyway.

There was a BBC documentary about the British Contemporary Art duo Gilbert and George. I didn't see it when it was broadcasted, but I saw it at this website.

 

The tracks used were just a few of the tracks on SAWII. You can hear them early on in the program.

The song "4" was used in a US government anti-drug advertisement spot, as well as an advertisement in the United States for the Special Olympics.

 

David Firth, the creator of the online series "Salad Fingers", has used "Milkman", "4" and "Girl/Boy Song" in his own unofficial videos.

 

"Girl/Boy Song" was used in the US in a Bank of America commercial.

 

The short film Rubber Johnny utilized an extended version of "afx237 v7" and "gwarek2" as its background score.

 

"Jynweythek Ylow" and "Avril 14th" were featured in Sofia Coppola's 2006 film Marie-Antoinette.

 

"Omgyjya-Switch7" is featured in the 2006 film Children of Men.

 

"Nanou2" plays towards the end of the Shane Meadows film Dead Man's Shoes.

 

"Avril 14th" was sampled in the digital short Iran So Far on a Saturday Night Live episode that aired on 2007-09-29.

 

"Btoum-Roumada" is featured in the 2007 Harmony Korine film Mister Lonely.
