Postcards for Piano and Strings is a musical evocation of the coastal town, Felixstowe, on the east coast of England where I grew up. The first movement represents a walk along the promenade watching the waves gently rolling and breaking on the shore. An ostinato pattern is introduced on the piano upon which the strings build with sustained chords with occasional melodic lines passed between instruments. The second movement is a homage to my interest in jazz and popular music which I became fascinated with whilst living in Felixstowe. This movement built almost entirely on a jazzy �riff� in 5/4 time, yet it follows a verse/chorus pattern more akin to a standard pop song. A certain amount of improvisation and �ad libbing� is encouraged when performing this piece.

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, 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 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.
