Our friend Gisela Gaede commissioned me to write a piece for at least eight violins - about the note open g string. Gisela had discovered the very special sound of this note only on a violin group: the note is too deep for the small violin instrument, so it sounds a bit misteriously. I tried to leave this often played note the only note that is played "normally" by bow; all different notes are performed in different special ways: pizzicato, col legno, flageolet, glissando etc. The first performance was in August 2010 - in our living-room, together with Gisela Gaede as one of the violin players.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
