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.

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.

Whispering Earth

Duet for Violin and Viola

The idea of the work originated from my fascination in one of the world’s great phenomenon: the ability for some animals to predict natural disasters. Their extra-sensory perception allow them to react and flee impending natural catastrophes. They are sensitive to the varied frequencies and magnetic fields of those natural phenomenia - as if mother Earth is whispering warnings to its inhabitants.

The work "Whispering Earth" echoes the muted cry of Earth - trying to reach out to humankind. The cry is represented by the motif from "Still call Australia Home"; it can be reinterpreted as "Do we still call Earth Home?", questioning human’s destruction to the environment they call ’home’. The almost-inaudible opening represents the "breaths" - earth’s natural frequency (known as Schumann Resonance), while the cries are presented in various forms throughout the work.

Incidentally, the structure of the work loosely represents the earth’s rotation. It is believed that the Earth’s rotation is slowing down as it passes through space’s Photon Belt. As it slows, the magnetic field reduces while the Schumann Resonance increases (opening passages of the work). Eventually, the earth will stop rotating completely (middle of work), only to begin rotating the opposite direction soon after (final part of work).
