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.

Static preview

The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.

Interactive preview

The interactive preview also shows a preview of the first page, but it's a bit slower to load. The preview is displayed using the Sibelius Cloud Publishing technology from Avid. With most scores, this technology will provide a higher quality preview, as well as being able to switch to full screen mode and also play the displayed music to you.

Printing after purchase

After you have purchased this item the Cloud Publishing technology is utilised to provide the printing mechanism for the music. As such, we recommend checking that the Interactive Preview displays correctly on your device before committing to a purchase.

Full details

Le Destin Raté is a trio for three instruments, chosen for their dissimilar timbres which would be laid bare in such a comparatively thin texture. Each melodic line, though able to stand alone, is a part of a more intricate and complex whole. The original solo line in the bass clarinet is augmented by a syncopated line in the viola that is echoed and occasionally ornamented by the flute. As each line moves forward, countrapuntal activity increases until no instrument is playing in rhythmic unison. Abruptly, they come together in a heterophonic texture for a few brief moments at the end of each section. As the contrasting middle section begins, the instruments are locked in a driving sixteenth note rhythm which is deceptively together. On a closer listen, one notices that the flute and bass clarinet are playing in different note groupings alternately until finally coming together in rhythmic unison. The ending is a restatement of the original motive with all three instruments playing a brief canon. Le Destin Raté is translated, "Failed Destiny" and is a line from a movie that I was watching one night while working this piece. I chose it for its brevity and as a springboard for abstract ideas about the piece.
