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.

Anyone with PTSD can relate to this song. Not too difficult high school singers and pianists can perform this.

Hurt! That's what this song is about! Hurt! When you are hurt! Words only talk about it: Trauma disorder and stress. It's best to know it's there, though, some say it's not to be found in the book.

Life is not a book though, and so look, look hard, work hard and see all the hurt people. Oh, yes it is easy to say, "Well, that's the world. Get over it! Get on, get on! You're like a pawn! But, they get hurt, too.

O.K. Survival… Could it just be about finding a way to maintain the living, while ignoring all of the hurt! March on. Blurt out life! Squirt or skirt then die. Swallow the ache! No belly ache! Force the best of the best, achieve the rest beyond all else, suffer then and for your demise, we'll sing your praise!

Or, perhaps, maybe life is meant to be The joy of finding relativity. Of saying: how can we help? Not a vision of being skewered.

Is not the earth a garden and we its stewards? Survival is a matter of our unity. Not to battle an end so perilous Love is an action of the highest responsibility, then the quality of relations the way we are meant to be. Survivors of trauma liken it best to when good things of life are so expressed that the living becomes worthwhile again. And the sin of hurt turns us so.
