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.

Similar to Bach, these are sets of music for piano, each with one prelude and one fugue. However, my preludes & fugues are not based on all of the tonalities consecutively, but rather randomly. The preludes do not introduce the tonality of fugues - some are contemporary atonal preludes followed by tonal fugues (some fugues, though, could have even corrupted tonalities - as I want to put it), thus creating contrast between them. The preludes, however, could have short elements of the subsequent fugues that indicate the subject. Also, these preludes and fugues are designed in a way that should be played as a cycle. The elements of this album are all collections of my previous two decades of elements along with new elements. The elements include harmonic language, drama, national identity, individual identity, bridges, codes, mathematics, and geometric shapes such as triangles and stars. My 24 preludes and fugues form an image of a 24-year-old person from war-torn lands. Most of my music includes this imaginary person in them - homeless, poor, unwanted, unloved, alone, with old clothes, etc. I always use this person in most of my compositions. Each is an event, not necessarily real, but a collection. Through them, I wanted to relay a message that makes a difference in our precious and fragile lives – a life that we hardly value, as soldiers go to wars, stay at the front lines and are totally inspired by some ideologies such that death itself becomes last option. The imaginary person is a land, is a home, is a woman, is a man, is a forest, is ice, is pretty, is ugly, is slim, is fat, is rich, is poor, is a species, is alien, is the earth itself, is the universe, is desert, is mountain, is ocean… all alone, a star in the dark universe.
