HR Giger's ZDF references the cover artwork for Tomita - Bolero?

Tomita's Bolero cover and Giger's "ZDF" work 433 (1980)

a) ZDF (work 433) (1980) by HR Giger.

Giger's "ZDF" work 433 (1980)
b) The cover of Tomita - Bolero (released 1980) by Barron Storey.

After Isao Tomita's death on the 5th of May was reported on the 8th May 2016. Days later  on the13th of May 2016, I suddenly realised that Tomita Bolero album cover was being referenced in ZDF, a woman holding a long elongated object, perhaps the bars of music,  amidst the wavy forms that could be a river in a virtual landscape.

This use of the album cover I believe also connects with the use of the ceiling of the Hypostyle in the temple of Hathor, which presents a mythological star map
