This is the seventh piece in a set of 15 pieces that all use the same five pitch classes (C, D#, E, G, and B). This project was somewhat of an "etude" for myself as a composer as it forced me to think about various ways the piano could be used that are non traditional. The other limitation that I set was that no harmonic intervals could be used, only melodic intervals. The use of the high note clusters in this piece does not constitute as a harmonic chord as there are so many notes and they are so high in pitch that it is impossible to determine pitch. I therefore classify them as noise.

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.
