I found it!

It is called 'Perpetuum Mobile' by 'The Penguin Cafe Orchestra'. Here is a link to sample it.<_Perpetuum_Mobile.rm

You need the Realplayer plugin.

I am at a loss. This tune has appeared in the documentary of Steven Hawking, A Brief History of Time, in another recent documentary on PBS about the World Trade Center called The Center of the World, and on a new Hewlett Packard commercial. It sounds classical, tends to repeat the same theme without too much variation. The main instruments are piano and some violin.

Please help if you can, I would love to know more about this piece.

How to insert music:

Add a bit of sheet music, along with a MIDI file, simply by entering note names in Lilypond syntax here between the [L] and [/L] tags.
For example, you can try what happens if you enter: [l]g'4 g'4 d''4 d''4 e''4 e''4 d''2[/l] (use the Preview function if you don't actually want to post this).
You can create these lists of note names by clicking on piano keys here.

How to post an audio recording:

If you just want to sing, whistle, or play a melody so that other forum visitors can hear it, follow these steps:

  1. Record your audio here.
  2. You should notice a 32-character hash code, something like: 2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf
  3. copy this hash code and paste it into a forum post, enclosed in the audio tags, for example: [audio]2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf[/audio]

How to mark a thread as solved:

If the original question in a thread is solved, please mark it as solved using the "solved" icon (or by just typing go to site [solved] into your post). This makes life easier for people who are willing to identify melodies, since unsolved problems are easier to spot that way. If a problem turns out to not be solved after all, just write [/solved] in a new post, and the thread will be labeled accordingly.
