The Music of Inception is Sneakier Than You Thought...

If you saw Inception, you probably remember the ominous, dark horn music that played throughout, and the Edith Piaf song that was used as a signal to the team that the "kick" was coming. You must also remember how time slowed down with each level of the dreams. If you haven't seen the movie, then what I just wrote was gibberish.

Anyways, this little video comparison shows how the music heard in the "real world" was slowed down to create the score in the dream worlds. This was intentional on the part of Hans Zimmer who scored the film.

I don't know if my explanation made sense, but just watch the damn video and you'll get it.
