This score is inspired by "Evolution: the future", a novel by Marco Santini and the relevant video by Lilia Morales y Mori

You can freely download the MP3, for personal non commercial use, at:

Very simple monothematic piece, to be listened while watching at the short video

Ethereal beginning (space images), harp glissando as a transition to the piano accompaniment.

Two snare ensemble parts, for the "generation of Adamo" and the "funeral rites" of Martin.

The chorus is the community.

The final part is mysterious, with an abrupt end, to create the suspence: if you want to know more, read Marco Santini’s free books:

"The Alpha Centaury project"

"Evolution: the future"


I got the idea for the title when I received an e-mail from a collaegue of mine, with subject "Arrival on Vega". So I came with the idea of "Vega 31" a minimg offshore platform on a remote planet.


The cover is made with Blender, an open source 3D rendering software.

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.
