Francois Bayle samples Frank Zappa on the album "L' Experience Acoustique 1968 - 1973 (volumes 5 - 6)". The Zappa samples can be found on the cut 'Journal' (1971)'. There's VERY MINIMAL use of snorks and a snippet or 2 of music from Lumpy Gravy.

The album got released in 1994 though all pieces had been performed/broadcast back when they were new.

From the liners by FB: "then come journal, apparently a collage, but in reality an attempt at continuity of energy, which once again introduces the <<>> shock which extends the experience into every day tones. Well before the term existed (25 years!), here we have the aesthetic of <<>>. Procession of iconic sound pictures (filtered Mozart, Jimi Hendrix, crowd, Madeline Renaud at the Sorbonne, hand-grenades exploding in the Latin Quarter, Frank Zappa, Beethoven...)."

Also of possible interest: Daevid Allen (Gong) provided guitar and Robert Wyatt collaborated (vocal) on another.
