Its from an audio book but I am confident that it came from a film as well as I feel like I have heard it before.

If no one recognizes it, perhaps you can identify the instruments used or suggest composers or songs like it?

Sounds like it could be literally any score from the past 12 years. Like Brian Tyler's version of a Hans Zimmer score.

Sounds like something from any of those "trailer music/library music" factory farms.

Reminds me of a portion of Rabin's score for Remember the Titans, though I know it's not.

While I don't know the answer to your question, I might be able to offer a clue. The track sounds to me like it's from a licensed music library. I've worked for more than forty years as an audio engineer and I've extensively used music libraries such as DeWolfe, Network and FirstCom in audio productions. It would be unusual for a production such as the one you excerpted to use a movie soundtrack cut because A) it would not be licensed for such use and B) if the production company did legally use it there would be a sizeable expense involved. It's much more cost effective to use music that's created for commercial production.

I'm not surprised the music sounds familiar to you. It's not unusual for licensed libraries to create "soundalike" tracks, either by theme or composer. DeWolfe, for example, released at least four CDs of music composed by Frederic Talgorn, who seems to be quite busy these days scoring films. Some of the cuts on the DeWolfe releases had a John Williams sound, some resembled James Horner, etc. So, the music may sound familiar because that was the composer's intention.

For the record, I have a pretty good memory for music I used for my audio work - especially the ones that sounded like they were from a movie score - and that track didn't ring a bell.

Sorry I couldn't be any more help.
