Click on the mp3 button to hear a live performance of 'Stillness' played by Catherine Schneider.

Catherine Schneider, the French pianist, improviser and composer, has played this work on several continents and it has become an established part of her repertoire. I’ve noticed that she approaches the keyboard as if it were an artist’s palette of colors and her interpretation of this work demonstrates an extremely wide variety of subtle sound and color nuances in the way she draws out the sonic waves. I would suggest that any performer who wishes to play Stillness explore the diverse possibilities in which any single note may be played, both in subtle variations of volume and of color.

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.
