Contact, Forrest Gump: Same music?

Today I was channel surfing & I caught the very end of the movie CONTACT. Is it just me, or does the music from this movie sound very much like the music from FORREST GUMP?

Don’t know if it is the exact same music, but Alan Silvestri is credited with “Original Music” for both films. He may have a distinctive style. (I have all musical ear of a turnip.)

That would answer a lot! They sound very similar to my untrained ears!

Same director, too - Robert Zemeckis
