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.

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.

Odd Ball is one of the scores accepted for the world premier of the Klavier Nonette Toy Piano Exhibition, created by Trimpin, a McArthur Fellow and local Seattle composer / inventor, that opened January 16, 2003 in Seattle, WA at the Jack Straw Foundation Studios. Scores were evaluated from worldwide submissions. Klavier Nonette is composed of 9 toy pianos made by Schoenhut and Jaymar during the 1950�s and 1960�s. Each piano is electrofitted with an electromechanical device that can be automatically played like a player piano, but can also be played manually. The pianos are arranged in three groups of three in a large gallery. Individual pieces are chosen from a Jukebox like device by the audience who are free to move about the gallery while the pieces are playing. Physical limitations of each piano required the peculiar notation you see in the score. The exhibit includes works by John Cage and Liberace as well as 38 other selected composers. The exhibit will be on display through April 27, 2003.
