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

Supernovae are one of the most spectacular and rare sights in the sky. Put simply, it's an explosion; the sudden death of a red supergiant. The conditions inside the star become so unstable the core shrinks and collapses on itself. Within seconds there is a cataclysmic explosion that destroys the star, ejecting a vast cloud of material into space (its outer layers). The heavier elements enrich interstellar gas from which planets form. Therefore, to study our solar system, we must begin our journey with such a phenomenon.

Imagine that you have been traveling through space and you've come across our Milky Way in its infancy (meas. 1-28). You enter and pass through the exterior arms of the spirals as they form (29-35). Notice the star up ahead (36-44). You explore it, when suddenly its core collapses (45-51) and explodes as a supernova (52-59). Over the next thousands of centuries the solar system forms and you witness the beauty of creation itself (60-109). You must move on to explore the system. Passing Pluto you venture onwards in this final voyage (110-119). What lies ahead (120-128)?
