This short piece is a cue I was asked to write by college to a scene from the film Point Blank. It is supposed to be rather brutal and aggressive but with a strong sense of rhythmic drive, hence depicting the incensed state of mind of the main character, Lee Marvin. It is scored – generally quite thickly – for percussion octet containing timpanis, orchestral bass drum, triangle, six toms, two tenor drums, an assortment of cymbals, egg-shaker, 5 octave marimba and vibraphone.

To listen to the music alongside the video, please visit my website (http://www.youngcomposer.co.uk) and click on the "Commercial" tab. You will find the link to the video file on the list of works on that page.

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.
