Hope no-one minds an off-topic discussion...

I'm trying to identify a piece of instrumental music. It appeared frequently as background music during the recent 2005 UK X-Factor program series, when the program was recapping who the contestants were, their history, etc.

I thought it was Philip Glass, possibly Koyaanisqatsi (is that the one where there's an accomanying piece of video of timelapse photography of a journey around a city at night?). However, I've just played through parts of this, and didn't spot it. It could be Moby's more ambient side.

Any ideas, or know of any websites I could try searching on to find out? I tried the official X-Factor web site and a google for Philip Glass and X Factor, and a few other places.

Hold your mobile phone up to the speakers when it is playing and dial 2580.
Shazaam (sp?) will text you back the name and artist. Costs 50p per shot I
think.

Thanks for the tip! Unfortunately the program isn't on anymore, but that might come in useful for the future.
