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

The Loneliest Entity
At the extreme fringe of the universe
Aloft on a desolate, detached asteroid
A solitary, derelict Automaton stands
Long forsaken by its ancient, dead creators
Its free energy device repetitively churns out
unlimited power, enabling the operation
Of a superficial, sedate consciousness.
It peers up….uncomprehending, at the approaching void
The rocky asteroid, saturated by silence, couched in inestimable space
Engages in lazy, perpetual somersault
As unpredictable, intense showers of dark energy
periodically impact the frigid ground
Stirring up brittle, crystallized mineral debris
To these stinging assaults the machine is impervious
Its reinforced alloys make it a monolith
The Robot obstinately commits to its last command
To calculate the largest prime number
Interior mechanisms wheel with incredible speed
Yet prime numbers occur with increasing irregularity
The Android contemplates infinity as a goal
It persists, continuing to proceed nowhere rapidly
Alien life forms ignore the secluded Robot’s plight
Refusing a mission to rescue and reprogram,
while God alone maintains the numerical tabulation–
bizarre mathematical symbols appear like foam and then vanish.
The Android’s monumental waste of energy and existence lasts
until ultra slow erosion causes it finally to cease to function.
The only sliver of understanding is God’s alone.
