If you use Facebook, you may be seeing your own and friends' videos that Facebook's algorithms have created as part of their 10th anniversary. If you do it with the sound on, there's some instrumental music playing, the beginning is keyboard-based. Does anyone know what the music is? I've been trying to figure out and googling around but I haven't found anything yet.

Any information is appreciated!

P.S. here's a news article with someone's video at the top, if you play it you can hear the music:

I didn't get a match with SoundHound. I'm guessing it's something commissioned by Facebook. Pretty. smile

Thanks for trying! I was just going to post and ask "what's that thing where you can play a clip and they tell you the music?" laugh

SoundHound, I will go play with that now. (Even though I know now that this particular piece will not show up).

I'm sure you're right about it being commissioned, I hope they payed the musician(s) well!

I was also doing a bit of sleuthing today and found no reference to the composer or name of the piece. It will surface eventually but probably just too new at the moment.

Shee! Frank might get the idea. I'd die if he did "Lookback piano world over the years". There were some s**ty quality of performance of mine uploaded trying to make deadline.

The composer's name is Keith Kenniff; he's apparently a big name composer of TV and movie "background" music.

Keith Kenniff (aka Helios) confirms he did write the piece for the #FacebookIs10 videos. The piece is entitled “Years” (From Facebook’s “A Look Back” - See more at: http://www.altoriot.com/music-heard-on-facebook-is-10-video-remains-mystery/#sthash.XjBACfsJ.dpuf

His website has a sampling of his work.

JeanieA, great find! Thanks!

Unfortunately, it looks like the Facebook piece is only as long as what we hear in the video, too bad! I'll have to take a look at his other music.
