This is a one-off experiment in writing a straightforward jazz piece, as opposed to the hybrid nature of most of my music, where baroque structures are infused with jazz elements. It is based on two alternating chords in the dorian mode. Contrasting sections of octatonic (diminished) harmony provide relief from the plain dorian sound. The melody of bars 24 - 39 is simply a written-out improvisation, and may be embellished or changed completely at the performer’s discretion. Alternatively, being notated in 12/8 time, it can be played as written by classical pianists.

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.
