Op. 10 was born in the summer of 2010 over the course of twenty-seven days, starting with a nudge from my mother. We’d been sitting together in something resembling a makeshift worship service, and she was a bit disappointed that there was no one playing any music during communion. She said that I should walk up to the piano and play something, a suggestion for which I was woefully unprepared, never mind that it would’ve been completely inappropriate for me to do so. Nevertheless, the opening measures of this piece came to me in the ensuing moments, and the rest followed in the days after. Conveniently, it was finished exactly five years to the day since I had finished Op. 8, my previous full-length piano solo.

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.
