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.

One’s identity can be contained in one word: one’s own name. When signing your name, you sign an idea of who you are, so when other people read your signature, they instinctively conjure up images or memories of their perception of your identity. Your signature becomes not just a name, but rather an idea or conception of your identity. It is inescapable. Signatures is an autobiographical biography based on perceptions of my signature.
This one-movement bassoon concerto uses a mathematical process to reduce my last name�Eismeier�into music pitches, so that each letter in my name "E, I, S, M, and R" has its own set of pitches based on the spelling of Eismeier. The result is five different sets of name-spelling pitches, each of which spell my name differently. The concerto is in nine parts, of which the first eight represent each respective letter in my last name in order. Along with its own unique set of pitches, each letter has its own musical character, but never can the music stray from the process that invented its pitch identities. The music is bound to my name just as my identity is bound to my signature on the music. The final part of the piece is labeled "set free," and marks the final transcendence of identity that can only occur in the eternal life that follows, and the music becomes free from all of the constraints that defined all of the music before. The bassoon is the featured soloist because I am a bassoonist, and it is part of my signature. The very first thing played in this piece is my name, and that same motif appears in every part of this piece. It’s my signature; it’s the story of my life.
