I feel like I've seen this ornament hundreds of times, yet I cannot figure out what typeface it belongs to. I've tried various type id systems and none have identified it. Can anyone help? Much thanks!

The two-days symposium will take place this year at the University of Arts in Poznań (Poland) on 18–19 June 2011. The theme of our conferences is type and typography. That is not going to change any time soon. This year we aim to accentuate the social aspect of the symposium. In the end, the word symposium refers to drinking party or convivial discussions held in ancient Greece. The two days will include exhibitions, an evening full of short type presentations (aka TypeShorts), party, and of course a day full of excellent lectures.
The super-low-cost early-bird registration is over in just one week! The registration ends on 6 June unless we run out of space earlier.
It’s easy to find sans serif typefaces with multiple widths and weights, but large serif families are much less common. The 30-font FF More fills this void. Five weights in each of Condensed, Regular, and Wide widths answer every need of publication design, from strong headlines to readable text and space-efficient information graphics. FF More’s sturdy serifs and gentle contrast withstand the rigors of magazine and newspaper design — retaining clarity despite size, background, or substrate.
I am new here and hope that I am posting in the correct place.
I was wondering if anyone knows of any musical representations of typefaces? For example, has some composed music representing the flow of a specific font etc?
Any info appreciated!
