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.

Based on the Buddhist idea of impermanence - here are the lyrics of Life:

Life !

This is the breath of life – this is the breath of life!

This is the breath – the breath of life on the knife edge! This is the breath – the breath of life on the edge of death!

Life - this is the breath of life – this is the breath of life!

This is the edge – the razor edge on the white breath! This is the edge – the razor edge through the wheel of time!

Time is moving on – time is moving on Your life is changing right now All the space all through time – make a way Dance the dance of life flowing in the motion - sound the song of life out loud!

This is the life – the life of breath on the knife edge! This is the life – the life of breath on the wings of death!

Dance the dance of life flowing in the motion - sound the song of life out loud! All the space all through time – make a way Your life is changing right now Time is moving on – time is moving on This is the sound – the sound of heart in the loud now! This is the sound – the sound of heart through the wheel of life!

Life - this is the breath of life – this is the breath of life!

This is the death – the death of self in the great sound This is the life – the life of sound on the ground of now!

Jenni Roditi, 1995.
