I "conjured" up some memories from childhood for this collection of short pieces for two clarinets. A brief summary of each: 1. Old Dark House (G minor) - Title of an old Boris Karloff film, probably contains the most challenging clarinet line of the collection. 2. The Cat (Bb minor) - The cat moves with sinister purpose; this piece, along with a few of the others is designed for student-teacher performance. 3. The Bat (E minor) - Inspired by observing bat aeronautics while on neighborhood walks. 4. The Rat (F minor) - Rhythmic and calculating, the rat searches the house and gains access to every room. 5. Flickering Candles (C major) - a calm, contemplative piece to introduce a seance. 6. Swaying Chandelier (Bb minor) - the spirits are moving tonight, but are in a dancing mood. 7. A Knocking in the Wall (D minor) - a piece that calls for foot stamping as well as clarinet playing. 8. The Witches (F minor) - twin witch sisters are brewing up a potion. 9. Bubbling Cauldron (Ab major) - a happy concoction for Halloween. 10. Spell (G minor) - our witches cast a spell; good or bad - you decide. 11. Joyful Jack-O-Lantern (A major) - who could be afraid of this happy porch-sitting guy, especially in a major key. 12. Skeleton (B minor) - reminded me of the cardboard schoolroom skeletons that teachers hang up in dancing poses. 13. Ghost (C minor) - this spirit haunts the house, but is treated like one of the family.

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.
