One day king Suleyman (or King Solomon), who had great powers and a formidable magic ring with jewels given to him by the angels, used his art to gather the multitudes of Djinn around him, for he wanted to see what they looked like. He conjured them to come into his presence, and as they poured forth in vast numbers, the earth trembled. When they became visible to him he reported that he saw legions of aberrant creatures, some two-headed, some fire breathing, and then many thousands in the shapes of fantastical hybrid animals with the head of a cat and the body of a dog and hooves, or with heads on backward. With his magic ring held high, he watched as they bowed to him, for he could subdue all but Iblis. King Suleyman used his magic for the powers of good, and he soon had a legion of Djinn building for him, diving for pearls, collecting jewels, and mining minerals. No human could craft metal like the Djinn, and their fabulous rings play a part in many tales.

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.
