My opera "KET" is about integration in a big city with the same name. The original libretto is from the old political Belgian TV journalist Geert Van Istendael who wrote nice poetry and books about Brussels.It's about the rich and the poor,black and white and the unpossible love between an immigrant Ali and a well educated lady secretary Muri´┐Żl.In this scene you will hear first the orchestral introduction. Next Mama City sings about everything that will happen and then a gang of young guy's and girls begin to rap and have a fight in a disco because they have no permission to enter.It ends with Bitchy's song of consolation for woonded Ali.The score is for big orchestra and rock-band. The MP3 recording is from the live performance in the Ancienne Belgique in Brussels.The conductor is Tom Deneckere.

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.
