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.

Full details

Muttekopf is scored for four Uchiwa-Taiko (Japanese “Fan Drums”) performed by three players. It is a composition designed to explore the dialogs between the musicians using only simple tones from the instruments. The piece was written in a location called “Muttekopf ”, an Alpine cabin on a mountain peak in the region of Imst in Tirol, Austria. There are various sections of the composition that are inspired by the nature and geography of the area, such as the intimidation of the steep climb up the mountain, the rapid flowing streams and waterfalls, rocks falling into the canyon, the uneasy sense of balance along the peak, and the rapid descent returning down to the base. It is critical for the performers to have complete confidence and syncronicity between themselves for an optimal performance, with an emphasis on creating a musical landscape through expressive drumming.
