Note the title at the top of the QT Player window.  This indicates that the slideshow movie has been added to the audio track and scaled to the length of the music.  If it's done the other way around the pitch of the music will be altered due to the change of the time frame the music is forced into.  The pitch will either be higher, shorter time frame, or lower, longer time frame.
