Viole part from CYCLORAMA for symphonic orchestra

34 minutes
Modern classical music

The term Cyclorama means a stage circular panoramic image which, if spun round, gives the impression of an unending sequence of scenes following one after the other. I gave the work the motto ´How the heavens opened, raining down strangely and persistently on the little stones´. This was how, at a very young age, my child once decided to solve the age-old dilemma and philosophical dispute on how life on Earth began. I tried to imagine the next stage in the development of this primeval beginning, all the way to somewhere in the unforeseeably distant future, and to con way it using a musical parallel. The work contains imitative and musically symbolic elements here and there, but, on the whole, this is not a superficial illustration of the action, and it would be a mistake to seek specific meanings in the general substance of the music. In any case, ideas outside the music itself end to have sense more for the composer, as an impulse for musical inspiration…´

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.
