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

?clats is a set of piano miniatures. The music is derived from a 12-note series. After years of relative silence in composition, I view this as my true ?Opus 1?, warts and all.

Although ?clat can mean brightness or brilliance it can also mean a splinter of glass. It is this dual meaning I have in mind for the music. Either the note row is shattered into melodic fragments or the matrix itself is broken.

?clat i is a rhythmic palindrome. The notes are taken following the outside of the matrix centred on E.

?clat ii is an exploration of bell sounds. As I was writing it the death was announced of Michael Oliver. He was an intelligent critic and broadcaster and I dedicate this piece to his memory. It only uses the first 5 notes of the note row in a 5 square matrix centred on B flat.

?clat iii uses a seven square matrix again based on B flat. Its form is a simple palindrome. The music in the right hand explodes, contrasting against the introspective music of the left hand.

?clat iv opens with a rising arpeggio. Motifs come and go. The entire piece is played pianissimo.

?clat iv is a scherzo, all over in six seconds.

?clat vi rotates the row centred on E flat. The music is a three part ritual. This is a decorated equivalent to the static bell sounds of ?clat ii.
